BALTIMORE — Right-hander Yu Darvish has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Texas Rangers and will miss the All-Star Game on Tuesday.

Darvish has a mild strain in his upper back. The move was announced Wednesday and is retroactive to July 6.

Darvish was scheduled to pitch against Baltimore on Thursday, but has been scratched. He’s 8-4 overall but has won only once in his last nine starts.

Darvish leads the majors with 157 strikeouts. He has a 3.02 earned-run average.

Notes

• Former Phillies All-Star catcher Darren Daulton has been diagnosed with brain cancer. A statement released by Philadelphia radio station 97.5 The Fanatic says Daulton has glioblastoma. The American Brain Tumor Association calls that form of cancer “highly malignant.” Daulton had hosted a nightly radio show at the station before doctors found two tumors on his brain June 27.

John Rocker is still making noise, a decade after the disgraced pitcher last played in the major leagues. Rocker told a Cleveland radio station this week that performance-enhancing drugs made Major League Baseball “more entertaining” during the steroids era.

Rocker told WKRK-FM: “Honestly, and this may go against what some people think from an ethical standpoint, I think it was the better game.

“At the end of the day when people are paying their $80, $120 whatever it may be, to buy their ticket and come watch that game, it’s almost like the circus is in town,” he said. “They wanna see some clown throw a fastball 101 mph and some other guy hit it 500 feet. That’s entertainment.”

• Two people familiar with the situation say the Chicago Cubs have agreed to a deal with No. 2 draft pick Kris Bryant. Bryant signed for $6.71 million.
