Yu Darvish set to join Cole Hamels in rotation | texasrangers.com

Daniels also had a broader vision. He looked ahead to a time this season when Texas would have two aces—Hamels and Yu Darvish—at the top of its rotation. That one-two punch might compare favorably with any in the game and potentially make the Rangers a formidable October team.

That vision is about to become reality. Darvish, fully recovered from Tommy John surgery, made his final Minor League rehab start on Sunday, and he likely will return to the rotation next Saturday against the Pirates in Arlington.

Texas Rangers’ Yu Darvish breezes through his first rehab start since Tommy John surgery with Frisco RoughRiders | MiLB.com News | The Official Site of Minor League Baseball

Taking a cautious approach into his first outing in almost 21 months, Yu Darvish emerged with a sense of relief on Sunday.

“I hoped I’m not going to blow (out) my elbow,” the three-time American League All-Star told reporters through an interpreter. “That’s what I was thinking.”

Darvish had no trouble of the sort and breezed through a pair of hitless frames for Double-A Frisco in his first rehab start since undergoing Tommy John surgery last March. He fanned two, allowed one walk and threw 18 of 32 pitches for strikes to Corpus Christi hitters at Dr Pepper Ballpark. Ultimately, the Hooks edged the RoughRiders, 4-3.

“It’s been a while since I pitched in a game situation,’’ Darvish said. “I felt like I was pitching with the bases loaded in a big league game every pitch. I’m very happy about today’s outing.”

MLB investigating Yu Darvish’s possible role in gambling ring

Say it ain’t you, Yu.

Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish is under investigation by MLB for his possible role in an illegal gambling ring run by his brother Sho, The Japan Times reported Tuesday.

Sho Darvish was arrested in October after being accused by authorities of placing bets on American and Japanese sports. He and seven others were accused of taking 18.5 million yen, or $150,000, worth of bets based on the scores of 16 MLB games and 28 Japanese professional baseball games from May 12-18. It’s not known if any of the games involved the Rangers.

“We are aware of this situation and are looking into it, per our standard protocols,” MLB’s vice president for communications Michael Teevan told The Japan Times.
