Rangers | Yu Darvish back in May?

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 15:58:42 -0800

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) feels stronger after undergoing Tommy John surgery, and he said he feels as if he could throw 95 mph right now. Darvish is eager to get back on the mound but knows he'll have to wait for a return in mid-May to early June. He has been long tossing at 120 feet three times a week and throwing on flat ground from 60 to 75 feet. Darvish is mixing in cutters, two-seamers and changeups but isn't sure when he'll start throwing curves and sliders.

"I have no problems at all right now. I have no concerns," Darvish said. "I feel like I could throw 95 right now, but they told me not to. I feel really good right now."

Fantasy Tip: Darvish can perform like an ace when he's healthy, but he'll obviously come at a discount in 2016, and he might be slow out of the gates once he's back in the big leagues. That makes him a very risky fantasy starting option but is worth stashing everywhere.

Rangers | Yu Darvish has been throwing

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 13:48:45 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) is hoping to throw his first bullpen session next month. He's been throwing off flat ground two times a week and doing long toss four times a week.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is capable of serving as a fantasy ace when he's fully healthy, but he's aiming to return from Tommy John surgery almost a year ago. There's no guarantee he'll be ready for opening day, and he could be slow out of the gates, making him a risky high-end starter.

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 15:09:10 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish has been cleared of any ties to his brother's alleged gambling activities in Japan.

Fantasy Tip: This could have been a nightmare for Darvish fans and Rangers supporters, but now it is a non-issue. Darvish remains a risky pick in fantasy drafts (no later than the middle rounds) because of his Tommy John surgery.

Rangers | Yu Darvish denies gambling link

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 09:04:08 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish said he has never been involved in gambling activities amid a Major League Baseball investigation after the arrest of his younger brother in Japan. Darvish issued a statement through his agent to recognize MLB's need to conduct an investigation. He declined comment but said he is certain they will find he had no involvement. "I am not and have never been involved with gambling activities," the statement read.

"While I understand that Major League Baseball must conduct an investigation, I am certain that they will find that I had no involvement in this matter whatsoever. I will not comment on this matter again, out of respect for Major League Baseball's investigation, and I am focused on preparing for the upcoming season."

Fantasy Tip: Darvish may be out until May due to recovery from Tommy John surgery, and he's a low-end SP2 in fantasy.

Rangers | Yu Darvish to stop throwing

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 12:33:34 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) is headed back to Japan, where he will not throw for the next five to six weeks. Darvish will resume throwing in January in Texas.

Fantasy Tip: This is not a setback for Darvish, merely part of his rehab plan. Darvish will go down many draft boards because of his Tommy John surgery, maybe even to the late rounds in mixed drafts.

Rangers | Yu Darvish feeling no pain

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 09:11:19 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) has been throwing for a week since having Tommy John Surgery in spring training. Things are progressing positively without any setbacks and "no pain whatsoever" says Darvish.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish could be ready for opening day, but we expect him to start the season on the disabled list to manage his innings. He should fall in drafts, as all pitchers returning from Tommy John surgery do, but he could be a draft-day value as long as you realize that he will be handled cautiously and will be working with an innings limit.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players need not bother with Darvish this season, but it is a good sign for those in long-term keeper formats that Darvish is making strides in his recovery.
