Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish left his spring training debut after one inning with triceps tightness, according to MLB.com.

The Rangers classified the injury as "not serious" and called it "precautionary." Darvish threw just 12 pitches and will be re-evaluated tomorrow.

Darvish, 28, missed the last seven weeks of the 2014 season due to right elbow inflammation. He reportedly entered spring training in good health. 

The Japanese ace has made the All-Star team in all three of his major league seasons, and led the league with 277 strikeouts in 2013. He went 10-7 in 22 starts for the Rangers last season, with a 3.06 ERA and 182 strikeouts in 144.1 innings.
