Yu Darvish earns no-decision in quality start Sunday

Yu Darvish gave up two earned runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings while striking out six and walking one but did not factor into the decision in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Fantasy Impact

Darvish is a matchup-proof starter for the rest of 2017 and boasts elite strikeout numbers along with a solid 3.45 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. He next takes the mound against the Rays in Tampa Bay.

Yu Darvish falls short Sunday

Yu Darvish pitched 7 1/3 innings Sunday against the Angels allowing three hits, two runs (both earned), and four walks while recording six strikeouts in a tough-luck 3-0 loss. With the loss, his record falls to 6-8 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

When you get no run support it's hard to get the win. Darvish did earn another quality start, his 12th of the year. This is a contract year for him so Texas has an interesting decision to make as the non-waiver trade deadline approaches.

Yu Darvish roughed up Tuesday night

Yu Darvish lasted only 4 1/3 innings Tuesday night against the hot-hitting Red Sox as the Rangers fell 11-4 before a disappointed home crowd gathered for the July 4th holiday. Over his short outing, he allowed 11 hits, seven runs (all earned), and no walks while recording four strikeouts. With the loss, his falls to 6-7 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

It was just a bad day for Darvish against red-hot bats. Fantasy owners should be patient and look for him to bounce back in his next outing.

Yu Darvish gets tough loss Wednesday night

Yu Darvish pitched effectively over six innings against the Indians Wednesday but came away with the loss as the Rangers couldn't get much going offensively against Indian starter Trevor Bauer and fell 5-3. Over six, Darvish allowed seven hits, three runs (two earned), and one walk while recording six strikeouts. With the loss, his record is 6-6 on the year. He will pitch again Monday against Rick Porcello and the Red Sox in Arlington.

Fantasy Impact

If your league scores quality starts, which it should, instead of wins and losses, and you get points for strikeouts, you're feeling pretty good about starting Darvish tonight. It's unlikely the Rangers will become sellers this year and in fact, may sign him to an extension. So, if you own him, hang on to him, because despite the subpar 6-6 record, he's one of the best.
