Yu Darvish News
San Diego Padres starting pitcher Yu Darvish was solid on Friday, tossing seven strong innings against the Miami Marlins, allowing just two earned runs on five hits and no walks. Darvish struck out three in the Padres' 3-2 win over Miami. Darvish improved to 3-1 on the season and has now posted five quality starts in six games in 2022. He owns a 4.05 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and a 28:10 K:BB ratio over 33 1/3 innings pitched on the season. His inflated ERA can be credited to his one bad start this season in which he gave up nine runs in 1 2/3 IP to the Giants back on April 12. If that one start is Thanos'd from his numbers, Darvish owns a wonderful 1.71 ERA and 0.82 WHIP on the season. He should remain active in all formats for his next start on Wednesday against the Cubs at home.
San Diego Padres starting pitcher Yu Darvish was excellent on Saturday, tossing six frames of shutout baseball in the team's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Dodgers. The veteran surrendered just one hit and three walks while striking out seven batters as he left with a 2-0 lead before it was blown in the eighth, forcing him to settle for a no-decision. Darvish has now thrown six or more innings and allowed one run or fewer in three of his four starts this season, but his one blow up outing where he gave up nine runs in 1 2/3 IP has his ERA inflated to 4.43. He'll have another opportunity to keep his strong start to the season going in his next scheduled matchup versus the Pirates on the road.
San Diego Padres pitcher Yu Darvish (1-1) allowed one run on four hits with eight strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Atlanta Braves. He picked up his first victory of the season. The 35-year-old bounced back after being lit up for nine earned runs in his previous start. On Sunday, he was efficient, throwing for 96 pitches and firing 64 for strikes. The Padres right-hander owns a 6.28 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and a 13:6 K: BB across 14 1/3 innings in 2022. Darvish is set to face the Los Angeles Dodgers in his next start on Saturday.
One of the most surprising things to happen in baseball over the last few years is how quickly San Diego Padres starting pitcherYu Darvish fixed his walk issues. He posted an 11.7% walk rate in 2018 and then walked 44 batters in his first 66 1/3 innings in 2019. Ever since then, he has posted one of the best walk rates in baseball, recording a 7.7% mark in 2019 and bringing that down to a minuscule 4.7% in 2020. Pair that with his career-average 30% strikeout rate and you have all the makings of a true stud to anchor your staff with. His wins projection gets a boost after being traded to the Padres, a team that has one of the league's better offenses and a strong bullpen backing up their starters. Age is a minor concern -- he will turn 35 during the 2021 season -- but his diverse pitch mix (Statcast gives him credit for throwing eight different pitches over the last two years) helps maintain a high floor, even if he does start to lose a bit of velocity and precision. Darvish can be drafted with confidence at his current second-round ADP of 18.
