Yu Darvish says he is no longer having strange feelings in his elbow when he starts throwing in a new inning or game.

Darvish returned to the Texas Rangers' rotation late last May after missing all of the 2015 season following Tommy John surgery during spring training two years ago.

The right-hander threw 34 of his 59 pitches for strikes in the Rangers' 3-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies.
