The Texas Rangers have won the bidding war for Yu Darvish, the 25-year-old right-hander from Japan. The news was scooped by Yahoo!'s Jeff Passan (although Karl Ravech's initial reported rumor was dead on):
The Rangers now have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Darvish, whose agent Arm Tellem said was pleased to hear they won the bid. If Darvish does sign with the Rangers, their rotation will be loaded even with the loss of C.J. Wilson.
