Yu Darvish saved his best stuff for after his inning on the mound. The Texas Rangers ace, who was shut down last August with elbow inflammation, threw 14 pitches without any discomfort on Sunday during an intrasquad game - his most extensive work since the injury ended his 2014 season. Darvish struck out two of three batters he faced as curious Rangers fans, the usual large Japanese media contingent that follows his every move and a touring college team from Japan watched through the fence on a back practice field behind Surprise Stadium. After making his last start on Aug. 9 Darvish was accused in some circles of quitting on the Rangers, an allegation he shut down with a choice English curse word.

Los Angeles Angels right-hander Garrett Richards is expected to begin pitcher fielding drills in about a week as he makes progress from August knee surgery, and the club remains hopeful he could be pitching in games two to three weeks into the regular season for the reigning AL West champions. ''It's not going to be opening day, let's put it that way,'' manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday. He's working very hard to be ready opening day, but he's not going to be ready opening day.'' Scioscia said that Richards would throw a bullpen session of 40-50 pitches and do some simulated work Sunday to prepare for fully fielding his position, weather permitting with rain forecast all weekend in the Arizona desert. So if that progression is prorated, you get kind of a window where you can expect him during the season.

Ian Poulter took a big step toward ending his two-year victory drought Sunday by playing bogey-free on rain-softened PGA National for a 4-under 66, giving him a three-shot lead going into the final round of the Honda Classic.

Nadal broke Monaco's serve late in the first set to take a 1-0 lead against the 60th-ranked Argentine, then dominated the second to close out the match in 1 hour, 26 minutes.
