Rangers | Yu Darvish posted quality start

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:41:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish allowed two earned runs, four hits and no walks with six strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Wednesday, July 27, against the Oakland Athletics. He threw 64 of his 93 pitches for strikes in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is slowly rounding into form. After failing to do so in his first four starts, he has managed quality starts over the past two outings. He also has 26 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings in the month of July to re-emerge as a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Rangers | Yu Darvish punches out 11

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:53:50 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish allowed three runs, two earned, on seven hits while walking one and striking out 11 over six innings in a loss to the Kansas City Royals Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish has wasted little time regaining his form, punching out 39 in 26 innings over five starts, and he is rewarding fantasy owners who stashed him during the early months. With 20 strikeouts in his last two starts alone, it is also time to start considering him in DFS formats.

Rangers | Uneven return for Yu Darvish

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 15:36:05 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) made his first start since missing over a month with a shoulder issue Saturday, July 16, and struck out a season-high nine over a 90-pitch outing versus the Chicago Cubs, but he was pulled after yielding two runs on two hits and four walks over a season-low 4 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish's control escaped him after a strong start in this one, but the Rangers and his owners can be encouraged by the fact he showed no rust while mowing down the majority of the hitters he faced his first time through the order. The three-time All-Star should fare better against the Kansas City Royals on Friday.

Rangers | Yu Darvish activated

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 08:51:59 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, July 16, and will start against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish has missed about a month because of his shoulder injury and will be facing a tough matchup Saturday. Owners may want to consider other options because Darvish is a risky player in his first start back.

Rangers | Yu Darvish starts vs. Cubs Saturday

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 12:03:22 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) will return from the disabled list to start against the Chicago Cubs Saturday, July 16.

Fantasy Tip: It isn't out of the question to be cautious and bench Darvish Saturday. The Cubs entered the All-Star break with a 2-9 slump, though, and Darvish has proven to be a fantasy ace when healthy (career 2.92 ERA and 11.6 K/9 through his past 57 starts). He's lined up for approximately 12 to 15 starts through the end of the season and should be owned in all fantasy setups.

Rangers | Yu Darvish rehab update

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 17:16:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) is expected to throw approximately 60 pitches in his second rehab start for Class AA Frisco Sunday, July 10. Manager Jeff Banister is uncertain if Darvish will make an additional rehab start or have his next outing in the majors following the All-Star break, with the idea of limiting him to 75-80 pitches in that outing.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, the 29-year-old right-hander should be viewed as a fantasy ace, so he should remain stashed in all formats. He is 2-0 with a 2.87 ERA through three starts this season, with 19 strikeouts through 15 2/3 innings.

Rangers | Yu Darvish to pitch Sunday

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:30:43 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) will make a rehab start for Class AA Frisco Sunday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish should be stashed in all fantasy formats, and it looks like he'll be able to return to Texas' starting rotation shortly after the All-Star break barring any setbacks. He can post ace-like numbers when healthy, and he had a 2.87 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 19 K's in 15 2/3 innings over three starts before his setback.

Rangers | Yu Darvish fine after bullpen

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 15:12:50 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) threw a 32-pitch bullpen Thursday, July 7, and felt fine. The team will decide on Friday, July 8, if Darvish will pitch either Saturday, July 9, or Sunday, July 10, for Class AA Frisco.

Fantasy Tip: This is great news, as it appears Darvish is getting closer to returning to the Rangers. He looked solid in his three starts before landing back on the disabled list, even striking out more than a batter per inning like the Darvish of old, and he's easily worthy of being stashed in every league. The 29-year-old has the potential to be one of the second half's biggest difference-makers in fantasy.

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:06:37 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Thursday, July 7, and his next rehab start will likely come Saturday, July 9, or Sunday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Barring any setbacks, Darvish could return shortly after the All-Star break. When healthy, he can provide fantasy ace numbers on a good team. Continue to stash him everywhere and be patient.

Rangers | Yu Darvish to rehab Monday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 14:59:07 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) will make a rehab start for Class AA Frisco Monday, July 4, and he's expected to throw three innings or around 45 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is a fantasy ace when healthy, so he should remain stashed in all formats. He's likely to need one more rehab start before the Rangers consider bringing him back. The Japanese righty hasn't had a K/9 under 10.4 in his major league career.
