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.

Rangers notes: Yu Darvish headed home to Japan during ‘no-throw’ rehab | The Star-Telegram

With Darvish penciled in for a return around May and pitchers like Gonzalez and Martinez seemingly ready to contribute, do the Rangers really need anything more than depth signs?

The Rangers are looking to add one starting pitcher this off-season and hope to find a fifth rotation member during a spring training competition among a slew of candidates, including Chi Chi Gonzalez, Nick Martinez, Nick Tepesch, Anthony Ranaudo, and Phil Klein.

The rotation currently consists of left-handers Cole Hamels, Derek Holland and Martin Perez. Right-hander Yovani Gallardo has until Friday to accept or decline the club’s qualifying offer. If he declines, the Rangers’ desire to engage with free agent Colby Lewis is likely to intensify.
