ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish was put on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, the same day he threw a 32-pitch bullpen session without any issues. Mario Kempe Jersey . Darvish had been set to be the Rangers starter in Mondays opener against Philadelphia before having neck stiffness during camp. He last pitched in a game two weeks ago and didnt resume throwing until consecutive sessions this weekend. Texas also put left-hander Matt Harrison, last years opening-day starter, on the 15-day disabled list while setting its 25-man roster for the start of the season. Harrison, who made only two starts last season before twice having surgery on a herniated disk in his back, had a setback early in spring training, when he felt neck and back stiffness. He could return to the rotation before the end of April. Darvishs move to the disabled list was retroactive to March 21, meaning he could be eligible to return next weekend. Harrisons move was retroactive to March 29. Left-hander Derek Holland was already on the 60-day disabled list and not expected back until at least June after surgery on his left knee, injured during the off-season when he was tripped by his dog on stairs in his home. Texas said Darvish reported feeling strong after his bullpen session with pitching coach Mike Maddux on Sunday, a day after 30 throws off flat ground. Darvish, who last season led the majors with 277 strikeouts and finished second in the AL Cy Young Award voting, will get a day off from his throwing program before resuming Tuesday. Texas also selected the contract of infielder Josh Wilson from Triple-A Round Rock, and he could start at second base. Infielder Adam Rosales was designated for assignment, giving the Rangers 10 days to trade him, release him or send him outright him to the minor leagues. Second baseman Jurickson Profar (muscle tear in right shoulder) and catcher Geovany Soto (torn meniscus cartilage in right knee) are both expected to be out up to three months. Profar was put on the 15-day disabled list, and Soto on the 60-day list. The opening 25-man roster includes only four starting pitchers: Tanner Scheppers, Martin Perez, Robbie Ross and Joe Saunders, the left-hander signed after camp opened and who earned an increase in his base salary from $500,000 to $1.5 million by being on the active roster for one day. The Rangers dont need a fifth starter until the second week of the season, and will make a move then. Texas will start the season with seven relief pitchers and three catchers: J.P. Arencibia will start and be backed up by Robinson Chrinois and Chris Gimenez. The six outfielders include Mitch Moreland, who also is a first baseman and designated hitter. Wilson likely will split time at second base with Donnie Murphy, claimed off waivers last week from the Chicago Cubs. The only other listed infielders are first baseman Prince Fielder, shortstop Elvis Andrus and third baseman Adrian Beltre. Keith Tkachuk Jersey . - Erick Torres scored his 10th goal of the season on a stunning volley, and Chivas USA edged 10-man Real Salt Lake 1-0 on Saturday night. Wayne Gretzky Jersey . -- Thirty years ago, the Detroit Pistons beat the Denver Nuggets 186-184 in triple overtime, a game that remains the highest scoring in NBA history. http://www.hockeycoyotesauthority.com/niklas-hjalmarsson-coyotes-jersey-c-30/ . Patton told The Baltimore Sun that he took an Adderall pill four days before the season finished, trying to improve his short-term focus. "I took one because I was stupid," Patton told The Sun.MALABO, Equatorial Guinea - Guinea wont be able to rely on simple luck at the African Cup anymore.The west African country, one of the three worst affected by the Ebola outbreak, won a drawing of lots this week to get its spot in the quarterfinals of the tournament. The national team will next face Ghana on Sunday.I can say we have luck and I can say we deserve it also, Guinea captain Ibrahima Traore said Saturday. Tomorrow is a big day for all Guinea, after all weve been through.In the other quarterfinal match later Sunday at Malabo Stadium, tournament favourite Ivory Coast will play Algeria. The Ivorians came into the tournament as one of the favourites, but Guineas path to the quarterfinals has become a fascinating tale.The team was unable to host qualifying matches, instead playing home games in Morocco and away matches at opposing countries in many cases getting frequent temperature checks to test for symptoms of Ebola. But the Guineans qualified despite the difficulties and the hardships, and they have played well through three draws in three matches in Equatorial Guinea.I was very impressed, not just because of football, Ghana coach Avram Grant said of Guinea. Their spirit is good. Its not easy for this country. I have a lot of respect to them.The route to the quarterfinals wasnt straightforward, however. After their third straight 1-1 draw, the Guineeans and Malians were exactly tied for second place in Group D. Jordan Martinook Jersey. . To separate them, two green balls were put into a bowl on Thursday at a hotel in Malabo and the representative from Guinea chose the one that got them through.Sometimes you can say that when you work hard, you deserve the luck, Guinea coach Michel Dussuyer said. Of course we have been lucky with the draw, but before the draw we have fought very hard to reach this level.In qualifying, Guinea and Ghana were in the same group, so they have played twice recently. Ghana held Guinea to a 1-1 draw in Morocco before winning 3-1 at home.The Ivory Coast came into the tournament as one of the favourites, mainly due to its star-filled starting lineup. With Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony alone, the Ivorians may have the best two players at the competition.But they started slowly in Equatorial Guinea, being held to 1-1 draws by both Guinea and Mali. It was only after a 1-0 victory over Cameroon in the final group match that Ivory Coast assured itself a spot in the quarterfinals.We are just thinking about victory, Ivory Coast coach Herve Renard said. We wont be happy after the competition if we are in semifinals and we lose. Or even if we play the final. Because if you play one final and you lose this final its terrible.It will always come into your mind for the rest of your life.
