Chicago Tribune: Whirling Darvish

After a pretty ordinary start to his major league career in terms of control, Darvish has quickly found his range and allowed just four runs in his last 31 innings.

“Just getting used to the atmosphere, the atmosphere of being in the major leagues,” Darvish told reporters, when asked about adjusting to life in Major League Baseball.

“I think it is just the comfort, doing it repeatedly has made me feel a bit better each time.

“I’m very aware that all these hitters, the teams that are facing me they are seeing me for the first time so I am not thinking about how I did this month, right now all I’m thinking about is preparing well for my next start.”

I’m excited that Darvish seems to have gotten a handle on his early control issues, it seems like that’s a transition Japanese players all have to make for whatever reason. He’s been awesome the last two games and his stuff is filthy.
