Yu Darvish is an often-overlooked starter in fantasy drafts, be it his age or his past inflated ERA that drive people away. His 2022 numbers, however, rewarded whoever took him two rounds too late, finishing 16-8 with a 3.10 ERA and 0.95 WHIP and 197 strikeouts in 194 2/3 innings. Nothing in his underlying metrics looks like a giant red flag going into his walk year with San Diego. His value is great in the sixth or seventh round, and even though we don't chase wins, he plays for a team who should put him in line for many of them. He turns 37 in August, but he could be a sneaky great pick on draft day.

Yu Darvish earns quality start in loss Friday

Padres SP Yu Darvish pitched well on Friday in a 3-1 loss to the White Sox. He allowed just one run on eight hits with six strikeouts in six innings of work.

Fantasy Impact

The Padres bats were silent on Friday as White Sox starter Davis Martin and Chicago's pen out-dueled Darvish. This was likely the veteran righty's final start of the regular season. But depending on how the next four games go, it's possible Bob Melvin needs him on short rest in the final game next week.
