San Diego Padres right-hander Yu Darvish is among a group of players unable to participate in the upcoming All-Star Game, as MLB on Saturday released the list of those who are inactive due to injury or have chosen not to play.

The hyped Darvish-Shohei Ohtani matchup will have to wait, as Darvish, who delivered his worst outing of the season Thursday, will not pitch in next week's All-Star Game in Denver, Colorado as he deals with back and hip tightness.
