Yu Darvish threw five scoreless frames Saturday against the Brewers, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out seven.
The Cubs announced before the game that Darvish would have a reduced workload after missing his previous start with forearm tightness. He was pulled Saturday despite cruising through five innings. He owns a 4.12 ERA and 190 strikeouts through 157.1 innings this season. He'll take on the Padres next Thursday.
