Worth noting

• Roy Oswalt threw a 30-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday and plans to throw another on Thursday, resting on Wednesday.

• Washington said he plans to have Mike Napoli catch the first two games of the series, with Geovany Soto handling Darvish in Thursday's series finale. Napoli has made two starts since coming off the disabled list on Saturday, missing 33 games with a left quad strain. Washington referred to Napoli's success at Angel Stadium -- he's hitting .411 there with eight homers in 15 games with the Rangers.

• The Rangers have had the best record in the AL for 27 straight days, and their 87-59 record matches the best in club history through 146 games.
