Yu Darvish tosses five scoreless innings in no-decision Saturday

Yu Darvish threw five scoreless frames Saturday against the Brewers, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Yu Darvish scratched with right forearm tightness Sunday

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Yu Darvish has been scratched from his scheduled Sunday start against the Milwaukee Brewers with right forearm tightness, the team announced. He is expected to be able to make his next start.

Fantasy Impact

Forearm tightness is never a good sign for a pitcher, but it doesn't sound like the Cubs are overly concerned at this time. Darvish has reportedly been dealing with this issue for a few weeks, so the team is skipping this start in hopes that they can get him fully healthy for the playoff push.

Yu Darvish pitches brilliantly in fifth win Tuesday

Yu Darvish (5-6) pitched eight innings of one-run ball to earn the win Tuesday against the Mets. He allowed five hits and one walk, while striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

Darvish was definitely on top of his game Tuesday night, his only blemish coming in the form of a Pete Alonso homer in the fourth inning. He tossed 104 pitches (73 strikes) over his eight innings, and walked his first batter since July 23. He'll take on the Brewers next on Sunday.

Yu Darvish whiffs eight in no-decision Wednesday

Yu Darvish did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's win over the Giants, allowing seven runs (six earned) on seven hits while striking out eight over 5.1 innings.

Fantasy Impact

This was a rough outing for Darvish, who surrendered four home runs in his 5.1 innings. On the bright side, he did not issue any walks for the sixth straight start. He now owns a 4.43 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 176:51 K:BB this season. He'll take on the Mets next on Tuesday.

Yu Darvish brilliant in loss to Phillies

Yu Darvish pitched seven shutout innings while striking out 10 in the Cubs’ 7-5 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

It’s been an uneven year to say the least for Darvish, but he pitched well enough to earn the victory, striking out 10 Phillies in seven shutout innings. Though the bullpen was unable to preserve the lead, Darvish flashed signs of the dominance that was so characteristic of his career in Texas. He’ll look to build on this strong performance moving forward.
