MLB Hot Stove: Yu Darvish is using his Twitter account to clarify free agent rumors
Darvish confirmed a meeting with the Rangers and shot down a report involving the Cubs
Darvish has of course been involved in plenty of rumors this winter. And he's taken to his personal Twitter account to clear things up. For instance, a few days ago it was reported he would meet with the Rangers, his former team. Darvish was nice enough provide the meeting date.
Then, a few days later, Darvish gave us all photo evidence of his meeting with Rangers GM Jon Daniels.
On Thursday, an erroneous report was passed around the internet claiming Darvish had agreed to a contract with the Cubs. , so the report of an agreement with the Cubbies seemed plausible.
Darvish wasn't having any of that though. He shot the report down on Twitter.
Considering most athletes use Twitter to post workout videos (#NoOffseason) or giveaways or sponsor products, seeing Darvish use his personal account to confirm and shoot down rumors is pretty neat.
