Yu Darvish: 'My elbow feels fine'
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(1/25/15) Speaking publicly for the first time since he was shut down late last season with right elbow inflammation, Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish said he's feeling no ill effects now, reports MLB.com. Darvish, who's throwing off flat ground, is on track to begin throwing off a mound early next month.
"My elbow feels fine and I am able to throw on my throwing program," Darvish said, per the website.
Darvish has been working out in Texas during the offseason and said his training is "going well." General manager Jon Daniels said Darvish is "right on schedule."
"I think Darvish is very in tune with his body as much as anybody and knows how he's feeling," Daniels said. "He's very confident. Like any of these guys, until they're out there you're always going to have some reservation, but that's the worrywart in me. From all the information we have, I'm encouraged. He's basically been cleared to do just about everything."
Darvish's last start came Aug. 9 against Houston. He went 10-7 with a 3.06 ERA in 22 starts, tossing two complete games and one shutout.

Darvish went 10-7 with a 3.06 ERA in 22 starts last season. He is 39-25 with a 3.27 ERA over three MLB seasons.
Rangers' Yu Darvish starting to throw again after elbow injury
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(12/9/14) Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish began an offseason throwing program Monday, after missing the final month and a half of the 2014 season with elbow inflammation.
Darvish, who went 10-7 in 22 starts, threw from a flat surface 50 feet away 25 times. Rangers manager Jeff Banister said Darvish has done some conditioning and he is impressed with what he saw.
He had 182 strikeouts with a 3.06 ERA last year.
Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish cleared to begin throwing
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(11/25/14) An MRI revealed Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish suffered no damage to his right elbow and has been cleared to begin his normal throwing routine. The Rangers expect Darvish to begin throwing in early December.
Darvish was placed on the DL in August with right elbow inflammation and was later shut down for the season. Before being placed on the DL, Darvish went 10-7 with a 3.06 ERA in 22 starts.
Rangers' Yu Darvish will have an MRI on injured elbow next week
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/21/14) The Rangers have pushed back the date of starting pitcher Yu Darvish's MRI on his right elbow to next week, according to the Dallas Morning News. Darvish is expected to start a throwing program in December, depending on the results of that exam.
|2014 summary: Yu Darvish's 2014 started out well enough with him going 7-2 with a 2.11 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 10.7 strikeouts per nine innings in his first 12 starts to earn his third straight All-Star appearance, but as the Rangers' season fell apart, so did his. The wins became increasingly hard to come by as his on-again, off-again control turned off again, resulting in 3.4 walks per nine innings in his final 10 starts, and an elbow injury forced him to shut down for good in August, falling well short of the 300 strikeouts some people envisioned for him after he recorded 277 in 2013. |
Playing time status: Darvish's elbow injury was determined to be inflammation, which sounds minor, but the problem with an unspecific diagnosis is that it prevents closure. Nobody has really expressed any concern that he won't be ready for opening day, but it's obviously something you'll want to monitor closely this spring before you invest a high draft pick in him.
2015 outlook: Darvish remains the game's best strikeout pitcher, but his frequent control lapses make for some inconsistency and predispose him to a less-than-ace-like WHIP. He's still an ace in Fantasy, of course, especially with the Rangers lineup looking poised to bounce back, but maybe half a step behind the other perennial Cy Young contenders. Round 3 is the absolute earliest you'd consider drafting him, with Round 4 or 5 being more likely.
