Rangers | Yu Darvish refining his delivery

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:35:47 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) is focusing on ironing out a recoil at the end of his delivery to lessen the strain on his right shoulder and increase his velocity. The recoil decelerates his arm speed, and pitching coach Doug Brocail believes it is what caused Darvish's shoulder soreness.

Fantasy Tip: While in the minors rehabbing his shoulder injury is the best time for Darvish to tweak his mechanics and delivery, so assuming he works out any kinks, it shouldn't impact him when he rejoins the Rangers. Continue to stash the fantasy ace in all seasonal leagues, as he appears on track to start approximately 12 to 15 games in the second half.

Rangers | Yu Darvish's rehab stint details

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 12:51:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, Yu Darvish (shoulder) will throw 60 pitches or four innings in his next outing, whether it is another simulated game or a rehab start. If Darvish reports no soreness in his shoulder Thursday, June 30, the Rangers will discuss the possibility of making a rehab start Monday, July 4, or Tuesday, July 5. Pitching coach Doug Brocail said Darvish will most likely return to the Texas rotation immediately after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish should be able to make 12 to 15 starts during the second half, which makes him a must-stash hurler in all fantasy setups. Through his past 25 starts, Darvish has a 3.04 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP and 201 strikeouts over 160 innings, after all. Check back for updates.

Rangers | Yu Darvish could throw this weekend

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:55:56 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) could throw a bullpen session this weekend but is unlikely to throw a simulated game or pitch in a rehab game for at least another week, according to pitching coach Doug Brocail.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish should continue to be stashed in all fantasy formats even though no official timetable has been established for his return. Expect the club to err on the side of caution when it comes to his rehab, especially since he's not too far removed from Tommy John surgery.

Rangers | Yu Darvish still not throwing

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 12:05:07 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) still has not begun throwing.

Fantasy Tip: There is currently no return timeline for Darvish, and there are now more concerns seeing he already missed significant time following his Tommy June surgery. When healthy, he's a fantasy ace, so continue to stash Darvish in all seasonal leagues and stay tuned for updates.

Rangers | No timetable for Yu Darvish

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:10:38 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) has no timetable to resume throwing, and the Rangers will take a cautious approach with him in his rehab from shoulder soreness, according to general manager Jon Daniels. His MRI exam showed no structural damage in his arm. "We haven't put a timeline on it. He'll get some treatment, some soft tissue work and we'll go based on his feeling," Daniels said. "I doubt he's going to be throwing the next day or so, but there's no doctor-prescribed timetable. He'll go off of how he's feeling."

Fantasy Tip: Darvish recently returned after a long recovery from Tommy John surgery, so there is even more reason to be cautious with him. Don't be surprised if he doesn't make it back in 15 days. Be patient and stash him everywhere, though, as he's a fantasy ace when healthy. Cesar Ramos made a spot start in place of Darvish and was shelled last night, so he may not be long for the spot.

Rangers | Yu Darvish placed on DL

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 17:47:46 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list Monday, June 13, with continued shoulder discomfort.

Fantasy Tip: Well, that's certainly a buzz kill after the Rangers ace made his long-awaited season debut only a couple of weeks ago. He would go on to make three starts, surrendering three runs or fewer in all of them, while totaling 19 strikeouts in 15 2/3 innings. Hopefully he's able to get back to the club as soon as he's eligible. In the meantime, look for Cesar Ramos or the newly-acquired Kyle Lohse to take over his spot in the rotation.

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 20:57:10 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (neck, shoulder) will not pitch Monday, June 13, and he is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his neck and shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish had been on track to return, so this setback is worrisome. Continue to stash him and hope the MRI results don't reveal anything serious.
