Yu Darvish earns first win as a Cub on Sunday

Yu Darvish improved to 1-3 on the year on Sunday versus the Reds, limiting Cincinnati to one run on two hits over six solid innings.

Fantasy Impact

Darvish struck out seven and walked three as the Cubs won 6-1. The performance lowered his season ERA to 4.95. It's been a rough start to 2018, but he has now allowed one earned run or less in three of his past four games.

Yu Darvish leaves game with leg cramping Tuesday

Cubs starter Yu Darvish left Tuesday night's start after four innings due to leg cramping, ESPN's Jesse Rogers reports. Prior to being lifted, Darvish had allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out five.

Fantasy Impact

While the cramping was not ideal, Darvish did look fairly sharp in his first start back from the disabled list. He went on the DL with the flu, so it's possible that the cramps were a result of his body not being back at full strength yet. He will look to get into the win column for the first time this season when he takes on the Reds in Cincinnati in his next start.

Yu Darvish returns and is effective Tuesday versus Atlanta

Yu Darvish returned from the flu and pitched four innings Tuesday versus the Braves. He would allow one run with five strikeouts before getting lifted.

Fantasy Impact

Darvish is off to an awful start to the season though this was encouraging. He is a good pitcher on a good team so logic suggests the smart play in many leagues is to avoid panicking with a drop.

Yu Darvish moved to Tuesday starter

Yu Darvish had his first start coming back for being on the DL for illness moved to Tuesday night on the road versus Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Darvish is off to an awful start to the season. However, he is a good pitcher on a good team so logic suggests the smart play in many leagues is to avoid panicking with a drop.

Yu Darvish placed on 10-day DL with flu

Yu Darvish has been placed on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to May 4, with parainfluenza virus.

Fantasy Impact

It's an unexpected move, but the team will make a corresponding roster change before Tuesday's game which Darvish was scheduled to start. There are no guarantees, but he'll likely spend just the minimum amount of time on the disabled list while he gets healthy.
