USA TODAY Sports After a strong finish to 2012, the Rangers need Yu Darvish to show he can pitch like an ace for an entire season. This time last year, the Rangers were finishing up a visit with Yu Darvish, his father and representatives in Arlington. They were in the middle of a 30-day window to sign Darvish to a contract and they treated the trip as a recruiting visit. There was excitement among the Rangers' personnel because the club's scouts and front office fully believed they were attempting to sign a future ace.
