Yu Darvish not opting out of Cubs contract

Yu Darvish is not opting out of his contract with the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Darvish would've been leaving four years and $81 million on the table. He had a dominant second half (2.76 ERA) but likely wouldn't have found that type of money on the open market. The 33-year-old finished the year with a whopping 229 strikeouts in 178 2/3 innings.

Yu Darvish strikes out 12 in tough loss Sunday

Yu Darvish (6-8) took the tough luck loss Sunday against the Cardinals, allowing three runs on seven hits and no walks across 8.1 innings. He struck out 12.

Fantasy Impact

Darvish was dominant on Sunday, but unfortunately the Cubs offense could not support him enough to earn him the win. The solid outing brings his ERA to 3.98, and his ERA in September is a clean 2.00. He lines up to face the Cardinals again on Saturday.

Yu Darvish takes loss Tuesday despite striking out 13

Yu Darvish (6-7) took the loss Tuesday against the Reds, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk across seven innings. He struck out 13.

Fantasy Impact

Darvish took the tough-luck loss Tuesday despite punching out 13 and largely minimizing the damage across seven innings. Over his last two starts, Darvish has struck out 27 batters across 13 innings. He'll take on the Cardinals next on Sunday.

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.
