Cubs' Yu Darvish: To throw from 120 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (elbow) is slated to throw 20 pitches from 120 feet Saturday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Darvish remains on track for a normal spring training, and it's good to see him ramp up his throwing activity. He's slated to toss his first bullpen since Jan. 18 assuming Saturday's throwing session goes as planned.

Cubs' Yu Darvish: Gains clearance for spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

President of baseball operations Theo Epstein said Saturday that Darvish (elbow) is in "really great shape" and will be "full go on a normal schedule in spring training," 670 The Score Chicago reports.

Darvish has spent the early portion of the offseason recovering from an arthroscopic debridement procedure for his throwing elbow, which he underwent in September. The procedure apparently hasn't delayed Darvish's preparation for the upcoming campaign in a meaningful way, as Epstein noted that the right-hander has had a traditional buildup of his throwing program. Heading into the second season of the six-year, $126 million deal he inked with the Cubs last winter, Darvish has some intriguing bounce-back potential if he can avoid any further health setbacks coming out of the spring.

Cubs' Yu Darvish: Throwing from flat ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (elbow) has resumed throwing from flat ground, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Darvish, who underwent an arthroscopic debridement procedure of his right elbow in mid-September after batting arm injuries all season, is right on schedule in his recovery. Barring any setbacks, he's expected to be ready for the start of spring training. The right-hander struggled through an injury-riddled 2018, making just eight starts and posting a 4.95 ERA and 1.42 WHIP across 40 innings for the Cubs.

Cubs' Yu Darvish: Weeks away from throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein said Friday that Darvish (elbow) looks healthy and is expected to resume throwing in a couple weeks, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Darvish underwent an arthroscopic debridement procedure of his right elbow in mid-September after batting arm injuries throughout the course of the 2018 campaign. It should come as no surprise that he hasn't started throwing just yet, though there will be some cause for concern if he isn't cleared by the end of December, considering his previous issues. The right-hander was limited to just eight starts this past year, logging a 4.95 ERA and 1.42 WHIP across 40 innings.

Cubs' Yu Darvish: Undergoes arthroscopic elbow procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish underwent a minimally invasive arthroscopic debridement procedure of his right elbow Wednesday. He is expected to be "100 percent ready" for spring training in 2019, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Darvish underwent this "routine cleanup" by Dr. Keith Meister in Dallas after getting a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews in recent days. The right-hander was officially ruled out for the rest of the 2018 campaign over three weeks ago once he was diagnosed with a stress reaction on the tip of his elbow, which caused him to exit his rehab start after just one inning of work. The Cubs failed to provide any sort of concrete timetable outside of announcing that he is expected to be ready by the spring, so expect updates on his progress throughout the offseason.
