Rangers | Yu Darvis throws bullpen

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:43:15 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is on schedule to make another rehab start this Friday in the minors. He's slated to return later this month if he doesn't have any setbacks in his return from Tommy John surgery. He should remain stashed in all fantasy leagues, as he has the ability to pitch like a fantasy ace upon his return.

Rangers | Texas to use six-man rotation?

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 17:18:46 -0700

Texas Rangers manager Jeff Banister is considering using a six-man rotation when SP Yu Darvish (elbow) is activated from the disabled list. If all goes well with his rehab, Darvish could return to action in late May, and the Rangers will play 43 games in a 45-day stretch between May 27 and July 10.

Fantasy Tip: None of the Rangers' current starters has pitched poorly enough to be demoted to the bullpen and Banister is also taking each pitcher's recent injury history into account when it comes to a possible six-man rotation. Darvish, along with SPs Martin Perez and A.J. Griffin, have each undergone Tommy John surgery in the last three years, while SP Derek Holland missed most of the previous two seasons due to various injuries and SP Cole Hamels has battled a recent hamstring issue. A six-man rotation would negatively impact owners of Texas starters in seasonal leagues due to the slim chances of any pitcher receiving two starts in the same week.

Rangers | Updated timeline for Yu Darvish

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:23:23 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) will need to be stretched out to 90 to 100 pitches before making his 2016 debut, according to manager Jeff Banister. Bannister projects Saturday, May 21, or Friday, May 27, as potential return dates for Darvish.

Fantasy Tip: There are still potential hiccups ahead, but fantasy owners who've patiently stashed Darvish want him healthy and available as the start-and-forget ace of their rotation. Continue to check back for updates and monitor his rehab starts, which begin with a two-inning/30-pitch outing Sunday, May 1.

Rangers | Yu Darvish remains on track

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 12:45:45 -0700

Rangers | Yu Darvish could be back in May

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 16:56:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) could return to Texas' rotation as early as May 16. The plan is for him to throw 60 pitches in four increments of 15 each Tuesday, April 26, and he could start a rehab assignment with Class AA Frisco May 1, according to pitching coach Doug Brocail. The Rangers want Darvish to make at least three rehab starts to prove he's healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is recovering nicely from Tommy John surgery and would be a huge boost to Texas' rotation, which has gotten off to a fine start. Starters often struggle with their control when returning from elbow reconstruction, but Darvish has proven to be a fantasy ace when healthy, so most owners will immediately return him to their lineups when he's back.

Rangers | Yu Darvish to throw BP next week

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:21:45 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) will throw another session of live batting practice Tuesday, April 26, instead of a rehab start for Class AA Frisco.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers are taking it slow with Darvish as he tries to return from Tommy John surgery last year. All reports have been good so far, and he may not be far off from a rehab start to begin a minor league rehab assignment. Best-case scenario Darvish returns to the rotation middle of next month. He should be stashed everywhere, as he has the ability to perform as a fantasy ace when healthy.

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 14:47:09 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) threw a 47-pitch bullpen session without any complications Thursday, April 21, and he is tentatively scheduled to pitch for Class AA Frisco Tuesday, April 26, depending on how his arm responds.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a setback, Darvish is likely only a few weeks away. He is a high-end starter when healthy and should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. Stay tuned for updates as Darvish works his way back to the majors.
