Rangers bringing Perez back up, pushing back Yu

The Texas Rangers are planning to bring top pitching prospect Martin Perez back to the majors and give ace Yu Darvish an extra day of rest.

After Thursday's series-clinching 4-3 victory over Oakland, the Rangers said they would recall left-hander Perez from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday to start that night against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Rookie right-hander Nick Tepesch (3-6), who had been listed as Saturday's starter, is being pushed back to series finale Sunday of the team's first trip to St. Louis since the 2011 World Series.

Darvish (7-3), the major league strikeout leader, had been scheduled to start Sunday night against Adam Wainwright (10-4). Darvish will instead pitch the series opener Tuesday at the New York Yankees.
