Rangers' Yu Darvish could start throwing program in December
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/2/14) Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish, who last pitched in early August due to elbow inflammation, will head to Japan before returning to the U.S. in mid-November, according to general manager Jon Daniels.
Darvish will undergo an MRI upon his return and if the results come back clean, then Darvish will start his throwing program in December, according to ESPN.
Yu Darvish on 60-day DL
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/8/14) The Rangers transferred Yu Darvish to the 60-day DL Sunday. Darvish, who hasn't pitched since Aug. 9 because of elbow soreness, has already been ruled out for the rest of the season.
Darvish is expected back for the start of spring training.
Rangers officially shut Yu Darvish down
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/6/14) Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish has been officially shut down for the remainder of the season, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Darvish hasn't pitched since Aug. 9 due to elbow soreness, and with the Rangers struggling through a down season, there was no reason to push him to return. He ends the year with a 10-7 record, 3.06 ERA and 182:49 K:BB ratio in 144 1/3 innings.
Yu Darvish to be re-examined Thursday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/3/14) Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish will be re-examined Thursday, according to the Dallas Morning News.
"We are leaning towards not taking any chances,” general manager Jon Daniels said. Darvish has reportedly felt a lot better over the last couple of weeks, but it still seems as though it's a long shot he'll return this season. Daniels seemed to agree with that notion. "The calendar is working against us," he explained. "We’re going to make a common-sense decision."
Darvish has a 3.06 ERA over 144 1/3 innings. He's been out since early August due to an elbow issue.
Yu Darvish could miss the rest of the season
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(8/25/14) Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish could miss the rest of the season, according to the Dallas Morning News.
General manager Jon Daniels told a local radio station that the club will be extremely cautious with Darvish moving forward. "With everything else we’ve dealt with and how important he is, we’ve said once he’s completely asymptomatic and the doctor clears him, we’d get another scan and then if everything is clear, we’d get him back pitching," Daniel said. He added, "by the calendar and how close to the end of the season we are, I don’t know that it will allow him to pitch again."
Darvish has been sidelined since August 9 with elbow soreness. The club has not officially said Darvish has been shut down for the season, but, as Daniels mentioned, it's starting to look unlikely that he returns in September.
|Though Yu Darvish's control problems weren't entirely resolved in 2013, the strides he made late in his rookie season mostly carried over to his sophomore season, helping him become one of the premier pitchers in baseball with a second-place finish in AL Cy Young voting. It was evident from his first start, when he came within one out of a perfect game at Houston and manifested itself time and time again with his 12 double-digit strikeout performances, including an incredible five during a seven-start stretch early in the second half. Really, it's strikeouts that set Darvish apart from other aces. He averaged nearly two more per nine innings than any other starting pitcher in 2013. The majors haven't seen a 300-strikeout season since Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling both did it in 2002, but Darvish's 277 last year were the closest anyone has come since (excluding Johnson himself, who had 290 in 2004). And considering he pitched only 209 2/3 innings, a modest total for a top-of-the-rotation starter, you have to think Darvish has a shot at that threshold in the years ahead. His control lapses make him not as consistent from start to start as other aces, but the final numbers are so impressive that he'll be one of the first three starting pitchers drafted in Fantasy, perhaps as early as Round 2.
