Yu Darvish Newsbeat
Sunday, June 12, 2016
Yu Darvish will miss at least one start because of a shoulder tightness issue that cropped up in his last outing.
The Rangers are hopeful that is it.
He will leave the team on Sunday to return to Dallas for an MRI on the area and will be examined again by team physician Dr. Keith Meister. During an exam by Dr. Meister following his most recent start, which was shortened to five innings by the shoulder issue, there was no structural issue detected.

Darvish showed up before a sellout crowd and pitched like he had never been away. The only tangible difference was that the outing was a little shorter than normal, but other than that, Darvish looked to be at his best in holding the Pirates to one run in five innings. He walked one, struck out seven and left after 81 pitches.
“Physically I could go more innings, but mentally I was done,” Darvish said.

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.

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.”

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.
