SP - SD
Yu Darvish went just four innings on Tuesday, allowing two earned runs on five hits and four walks. He salvaged some of his fantasy day with six strikeouts.
Darvish now has an ERA of 4.22, and any fantasy managers that were hoping for some last week heroics from the former ace have been greatly disappointed. He shouldn't be looked at in DFS if he gets another start this season.
Yu Darvish pitched 5.1 innings on Thursday, allowing four earned runs while striking out seven. He only surrendered three hits, but struggled with command as he gave up three walks.
It's been the same story for Darvish in the second half of the season, he is simply lacking the same command of the strike zone he had to start the year and he is simply not startable in fantasy. With an ERA of 4.21 on the year, his next start will come in an ever important series against the Dodgers next week.
Yu Darvish pitched four innings on Monday, allowing eight earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out just three batters.
Darvish simply isn't the same pitcher as he was at the beginning of the season and it's daring to even slot him out in fantasy anymore. It's a sad realization that many fantasy managers may have made already, but if you manage to make the finals you definitely can't start him again.
Yu Darvish pitched six innings on one run ball on Wednesday, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out seven batters.
Darvish got his ERA back under 4.00 with this performance, as he tallied his eighth win of the season in the process. It was a much needed bounce back start for the Japanese pitcher, who had a forgetful month of August.
Yu Darvish went just 2.2 innings on Wednesday, allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits and one walk while only striking out three batters.
For starters, Darvish simply didn't have his swing and miss stuff on Wednesday. There was a lot of hard contact which puts his teammates in a difficult position to make quality plays. Still, he would've gotten out of the third inning had teammate Manny Machado made a good throw to first base on a routine play. Instead, he was taken out of the game and earned the loss. He'll look to rebound in his next start against the Angels next week.
