Rangers | Yu Darvish could be back in May

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 16:56:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) could return to Texas' rotation as early as May 16. The plan is for him to throw 60 pitches in four increments of 15 each Tuesday, April 26, and he could start a rehab assignment with Class AA Frisco May 1, according to pitching coach Doug Brocail. The Rangers want Darvish to make at least three rehab starts to prove he's healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is recovering nicely from Tommy John surgery and would be a huge boost to Texas' rotation, which has gotten off to a fine start. Starters often struggle with their control when returning from elbow reconstruction, but Darvish has proven to be a fantasy ace when healthy, so most owners will immediately return him to their lineups when he's back.

Rangers | Yu Darvish to throw BP next week

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:21:45 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) will throw another session of live batting practice Tuesday, April 26, instead of a rehab start for Class AA Frisco.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers are taking it slow with Darvish as he tries to return from Tommy John surgery last year. All reports have been good so far, and he may not be far off from a rehab start to begin a minor league rehab assignment. Best-case scenario Darvish returns to the rotation middle of next month. He should be stashed everywhere, as he has the ability to perform as a fantasy ace when healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a setback, Darvish is likely only a few weeks away. He is a high-end starter when healthy and should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. Stay tuned for updates as Darvish works his way back to the majors.

Rangers | Yu Darvish back in May?

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 15:01:59 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) won't necessarily need six rehab starts in the minors before returning to the rotation. He is expected to throw two more live batting practice sessions of 45 and 60 pitches Sunday, April 17, and Thursday, April 21, and could start a rehab assignment April 25 for three innings. He could return as early as May 11 if he only makes three rehab starts.

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Darvish owners, but don't get your hopes up too soon. Pitchers often have setbacks in their recovery from Tommy John surgery. But Darvish could be a fine value pick based on where he was going in drafts if he returns next month. His control may suffer initially, but Darvish has proven he is a fantasy ace when healthy.

Rangers | Yu Darvish to throw live BP

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 17:42:54 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Wednesday, April 13, in Arlington. He will go through a normal pregame warm-up, followed by two 15-pitch innings.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is getting closer to returning to a major league mound, as he's about six weeks away now. He'll carry monster potential, being one of the game's best pitchers prior to going down with injury, and could ultimately end up being one of the steals of the draft if he comes back in usual form.
