Yu Darvish could miss the rest of the season


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) 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.

He added that he's not sure "what’s going to happen there." The team has not indicated that Darvish's injury is more serious than initially expected.
