Padres' Yu Darvish: Gives up four runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the Rockies after allowing four runs on six hits and two walks while fanning five across five innings.

Pitching at Coors Field is always tough and Darvish's numbers in this outing reflected that, as he delivered one of his most inefficient outings of the season. The left-hander looked in complete control during the first three innings, but he couldn't hold on and was lifted in the sixth inning before even recording an out. The Japanese hurler saw his ERA increase to 2.57, but he continues to be one of the most reliable pitchers in the National League and should remain a strong play across all formats. He's slated to pitch again during the weekend series against the Reds at home.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Takes loss despite quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (6-2) was tagged with the loss Wednesday against the Cubs despite giving up just two runs on three hits and two walks while fanning eight across seven innings.

Darvish looked excellent on the mound and notched his eighth quality start of the campaign, but that wasn't enough to extend his undefeated streak to nine appearances due to the lack of run support. Darvish has been one of the most dominant pitchers in the National League this season, however, and he improved his ERA to a blistering 2.28 over 79 innings across 13 starts. His next start should be a tough one, however, as he lines up to face the Rockies on the road next week.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Picks up another win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (6-1) earned the win Thursday against the Mets after giving up two runs on four hits and a walk while fanning five across 5.1 innings.

Darvish might have ended two outs away from posting a quality start, but that was because his pitch count had already reached 90 deliveries. The star hurler delivered another impressive outing but also contributed at the plate, as he went 2-for-2 with a double. Darvish, who improved his ERA to 2.25 on the year, lines up to face his former team, the Cubs, at home next week.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Unsteady against Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish hurled five innings against the Astros on Saturday, allowing five runs (four earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.

The right-hander kept Houston off the scoreboard for three innings, but he was tagged for two runs on a Carlos Correa homer in the fourth. Darvish then allowed three more runs in the fifth, though the final tally was unearned. The five total runs allowed were a season high for Darvish, who came into the contest having yielded no more than two runs in each of his past nine starts. In spite of the poor outing, he still owns fantastic numbers on the season, including a 2.16 ERA and 79:16 K:BB across 66.2 innings. Darvish lines up to face the Mets at home next weekend.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Stymies Seattle over seven innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (5-1) picked up the win over Seattle on Sunday, allowing one run on seven hits with five strikeouts in seven innings in a 9-2 win.

Darvish was engaged in a pitcher's duel with opposing starter Justin Dunn, who actually accounted for the one run Darvish surrendered, until San Diego broke the game open with four runs in both the sixth and seventh innings. Darvish has been supremely dominant since Opening Day, allowing no more than two runs in each of the ensuing eight starts to the tune of a sparkling 1.75 ERA.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Dominant against Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (4-1) earned the win Monday against the Rockies after tossing seven scoreless innings, giving up four hits and fanning 10.

Darvish has looked absolutely dominant this season and he's now tossed two straight scoreless outings. In fact, he's allowed one or fewer runs in all but two of his starts and owns a sterling 1.81 ERA across 54.2 innings. His next start is scheduled for the upcoming weekend series against the Mariners at home.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Labors through four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish allowed an unearned run on two hits and a walk with one strikeout in a no-decision versus Colorado on Wednesday.

Darvish needed 76 pitches (48 strikes) to get through four innings before Emilio Pagan relieved him to start the fifth. It was the shortest of Darvish's eight starts this season. The 34-year-old has allowed two or fewer runs in his last seven outings, pitching to a 2.08 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 59:13 K:BB across 47.2 innings overall. He lines up for a rematch with Colorado next week.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish will start Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Darvish was initially expected to start Tuesday's contest, but he'll now start the first game of a twin bill after Monday's series opener was postponed. Dinelson Lamet will take the mound for Tuesday's matchup against Colorado.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Fans eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish allowed two runs on six hits and a walk while fanning eight across 5.2 innings Wednesday against the Pirates. He didn't factor into the decision.

Darvish ended just one out away from posting what would've been his sixth straight quality start, and the right-hander continues to pitch at a stellar level in 2021 -- he has given up just 11 runs across 43.2 innings while posting a 57:12 K:BB thus far. Darvish will try to extend this sizzling run next week, as he's slated to take the ball next week against Colorado on the road.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Masterful in 12-strikeout outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (3-1) earned the win over San Francisco on Friday, pitching 6.1 innings and allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out 12.

The right-hander was on his game against a surprising Giants squad, giving up only one run on a first-inning homer. Darvish set a season high with 12 strikeouts in the victory and induced 16 swings-and-misses. Since a rough outing in the season opener against Arizona, Darvish has hurled five straight quality starts, posting a 1.35 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 43:10 K:BB over 33.1 innings during that stretch. He is projected to next take the mound Wednesday at home against Pittsburgh.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Picks up win No. 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (2-1) allowed one run on four hits and three walks while striking out nine batters over seven innings as he picked up the win against the Dodgers on Friday.

The Dodgers got to Darvish early, as Mookie Betts led off the bottom half of the first with a double before eventually coming around to score on an RBI single to right center by Max Muncy. The 34-year-old Darvish settled in thereafter and kept the Dodgers off the scoreboard but did appear to have some control issues, as he issued five free passes (three walks and two hit batters). Regardless, Darvish allowed exactly one earned run for the fourth consecutive outing and has found a nice groove after getting roughed up by the Diamondbacks in the season opener. He'll take a 2.27 ERA and 37:8 K:BB into his next scheduled start against the Giants on Friday.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Records quality start in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (1-1) allowed one earned run on one hit and walked two while striking out nine over seven innings of work in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

The righty was phenomenal as he threw 68 of his 98 pitches for strikes. His sole mistake came on walking opposing pitcher Clayton Kershaw with the bases loaded in the fifth inning. Darvish hasn't skipped a beat since being traded to San Diego, holding a 2.55 ERA on the year. His next chance to take the rubber will be next week against the Dodgers again.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Fans six in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (1-0) allowed one run on three hits and a walk over seven innings Monday, striking out six and picking up a win over the Pirates.

Darvish earned his first win as a Padre by taking care of the Pirates with relative ease Monday. He tossed 63 of 95 pitches for strikes and retired 13 of the final 14 batters he faced. The lone run he yielded came from a Phillip Evans double in the third inning. The 34-year-old will face his toughest test of the season at home against the Dodgers on Saturday.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Bounces back with solid performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish allowed one run on three hits and a walk while striking out seven across six innings Tuesday against the Giants. He did not factor into the decision.

Darvish bounced back from a rough Opening Day outing by firing six strong innings. His only blemish on the evening was surrendering a solo home run to Brandon Crawford in the third, as he otherwise held the Giants to a couple of singles. The Padres unfortunately weren't able to give him much run support, so he was unable to qualify for the win. However, he should have a good chance for another dominant performance in the series opener against the Pirates on Monday.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Burned by long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish allowed four earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six across 4.2 innings Thursday against the Diamondbacks. He did not factor into the decision.

Darvish allowed three singles and an earned run in the first inning, but he went on to hold the Diamondbacks scoreless for the next four frames. However, his outing was derailed in his final inning of work when he allowed a solo homer and a two-run shot. Darvish also induced only nine swinging strikes on 93 total pitches. We can likely just chalk this up to an Opening Day hiccup, and Darvish will look to bounce back in his second start of the campaign Tuesday against the Giants.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Named Opening Day starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish has been named the Opening Day starter for the Padres, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Darvish finished second in NL Cy Young voting with the Cubs in 2020 and had a strong spring showing. He tossed five scoreless innings while striking out seven in two Cactus League starts and will take the mound for the Padres against Arizona on April 1 as a result.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Dominant in second spring outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish hurled three scoreless and hitless innings Sunday in a Cactus League contest versus Cincinnati. He struck out three batters.

The only baserunner Darvish allowed in the sharp appearance came on a hit batsman in the third inning. The veteran right-hander is making a strong case for Opening Day pitching honors -- he has held opponents scoreless while striking out seven across five innings through two spring starts.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Sharp in first spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish tossed two scoreless innings against Kansas City in a Cactus League contest Sunday, allowing one hit and no walks while striking out four.

Darvish made quite a first impression in his first outing as a Padre, working around a single to strike out the side in the first inning. He then retired the first two batters he faced in the second before finishing his appearance with another strikeout. San Diego has yet to name its Opening Day starter, but Darvish figures to be the early favorite for the honor given his dominant campaign in 2020.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Spring debut coming Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish is slated to make his Padres debut in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Royals, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Padres deliberately kept Darvish off their pitching schedule early in the Cactus League slate, with the reigning NL Cy Young runner-up limited to facing hitters in live batting practice and simulated games. Darvish still remains on track to handle a normal starter's workload by the start of the regular season, though manager Jayce Tingler has yet to say whether the 34-year-old would receiving the Opening Day nod April 1 versus the Diamondbacks. Coming off an abbreviated 2020 campaign with the Cubs in which he posted a 2.01 ERA and 0.96 WHIP to go with 93 strikeouts in 76 innings, Darvish looks like a safe top-10 pitching selection in fantasy drafts.

Padres' Yu Darvish: Traded to Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish has been traded to the Padres along with Victor Caratini in exchange for Zach Davies, Reginald Preciado, Owen Caissie, Yeison Santana and Ismael Mena, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Darvish is coming off a very strong season in which he went 8-3 while posting a 2.01 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 93:14 K:BB across 76 innings for the Cubs. He now heads west to join a Padres team that continues to focus on bolstering its starting pitching staff. The right-hander will settle in alongside Blake Snell, who was acquired from the Rays on Sunday, atop the Padres rotation.
