Arizona Diamondbacks for the first half
ARLINGTON, Texas -- All-Star pitcher Yu Darvish checked out OK after being struck on the top of the head by a batted ball while throwing in the outfield during batting practice Tuesday. [url=http://www.airmax2018womens.us/]Sale Air Max Black[/url] . The Texas Rangers said Darvish was examined by team physician Dr. Keith Meister before Tuesday nights game against Houston, and that "everything appears to be OK." Darvish is expected to make his scheduled start Wednesday night in the series finale against the Astros. But the Rangers said Darvish would be re-evaluated before the game as a precaution. Responding on Twitter to an article about the incident, Darvish indicated that he was OK. He resumed throwing a few minutes after the incident, and didnt see Meister until after that. Darvish had just made a throw when he was struck by the batted ball. Clearly stunned, the Japanese ace dropped into a squat momentarily before getting up, wiping his brow and appearing to check his head with his fingers. He then put his cap back on and finished his throwing session off flat ground in right field with other pitchers. Rangers left-hander Derek Holland was shagging balls in front of Darvish. The ball glanced off Hollands glove before hitting Darvish. "I heard it," Holland said. "I was supposed to be protecting him but I just couldnt get to the ball. It was too high. I didnt get high enough. Hes fine." Darvish, who joined Kenny Rogers as the only three-time All-Star pitchers for the Rangers, is 8-4 with a 2.63 ERA in 16 starts this season. His 134 strikeouts are fifth in the majors, but his 11 strikeouts per nine innings are the most. Wednesday is Darvishs last scheduled appearance before the All-Star break. Before his expected start last Thursday was pushed back a day because of weather concerns in Baltimore, the right-hander had been on track to start Sunday in the last game before the break. A pitcher who works Sunday cannot throw in the All-Star game.

That Ginette Reno can sing.TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays filled a hole in their coaching staff Thursday by announcing that former all-star third baseman Kevin Seitzer will serve as the teams hitting coach next season. He succeeds Chad Mottola, who spent one year in the position after Dwayne Murphy moved from hitting coach to first-base coach after the 2012 campaign. Seitzer, 51, served as hitting coach for the Kansas City Royals from 2009-12. The 2010 Royals team was second in Major League Baseball with a .274 average and the 11 squad was fourth at .275. "For me the bottom line as far as philosophy and approach is really making consistent hard contact," Seitzer said on a conference call. "And thats why the thinking, the plan of hitting the ball in the middle of the field, staying gap to gap, gives you a better chance to put the barrel of the bat on the ball." The Blue Jays are coming off a disappointing 73-89 season. Toronto had a team average of .252 thiis past year, 15th in the majors. [url=http://www.airmax2018womens.us/]White Air Max Online[/url]. Toronto was fourth in home runs with 185 and 11th in RBIs with 669, and the team had the sixth fewest strikeouts. Seitzer, a native of Springfield, Ill., also served as hitting coach with the Arizona Diamondbacks for the first half of the 2007 season. As a player, he finished runner-up for Rookie of the Year to Mark McGwire in 1987. He was an all-star that year with the Royals and again in 1995 with the Milwaukee Brewers. Over 12 big-league seasons, Seitzer had a .295 average with 74 home runs and 613 RBIs for the Royals, Brewers, Oakland Athletics and Cleveland Indians. The team previously announced that Mottola and Murphy will not return for the 2014 campaign. Bench coach DeMarlo Hale, pitching coach Pete Walker, third-base coach Luis Rivera and bullpen coach Pat Hentgen will return in their current roles under manager John Gibbons. The Blue Jays have yet to find a replacement for Murphy.
