Rangers' Yu Darvish: Tosses sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish threw a simulated contest Thursday, giving up three runs on three hits (including a home run) and two walks, while striking out three in 2.2 innings, Dave Sessions of MLB.com reports. He threw 31 strikes in 51 pitches.

The right-hander's line looks ugly, but his outing was mostly to get his stuff right before logging an actual spring game. While the club will continue his progression at a controlled pace, Darvish -- who spun a 3.41 ERA last year with 132 strikeouts in 100.1 frames after returning from Tommy John surgery -- will remain coveted as a fantasy ace.

Rangers' Yu Darvish: Re-incorporating split-finger fastball
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Darvish is planning to re-incorporate the split-finger fastball into his pitching repertoire, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

He used the pitch intermittently before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2015 and pitching coach Doug Brocail asked him not to incorporate it last season. Darvish had a down year in 2016, posting a career-worst 3.41 ERA and 132 strikeouts in 17 starts. The repertoire change may not induce a miracle, but it provides another weapon for the Rangers ace.

Rangers' Yu Darvish: Will start Game 2 of ALDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish has been announced as the starting pitcher for Game 2 of the Rangers' ALDS series with the Blue Jays, MLB.com's TR Sullivan reports.

Darvish will follow Cole Hamels in the Rangers' rotation and take the ball Friday afternoon. Darvish had a couple rough starts in September, but he finished the season on a high note, giving up just one earned run and posting a 21:2 K:BB in 13 innings over his final two starts -- both victories.

Rangers' Yu Darvish: Strikes out nine over 6.2 innings versus Angels
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Darvish allowed one run on three hits, struck out nine and walked one over 6.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Angels on Friday.

When he left in the seventh, the game was tied and the go-ahead run for the Angels was on third base, but the runner was stranded, allowing Texas to go on to win 2-1. The 30-year-old has struck out at least nine batters six times since the All-Star break. His next start will be Friday against the Angels once again.

Rangers' Yu Darvish: Pounded for five runs in Sunday loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Darvish (5-4) allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over four innings to take the loss Sunday against the Astros.

After holding opponents to two or fewer earned runs in eight of his first 10 starts this year, Darvish has now given up at least three earned runs in three straight contests to raise his ERA from 2.75 to 3.45.
