There's a lot of focus on the second-half performance of Yu Darvish, one in which he allowed just seven walks over his final 13 starts, but not a lot on his dreadful first three months of the season, where he was at best a streamer who was walking everyone. Maybe he figured it out, but the whole is a greater sample than selected stretches. For Darvish, you're likely looking at a player who will be somewhere in between. He'll be a strikeout artist, but he'll be an average pitcher who is fine - not great - in the other categories. If his first half of the season in 2019 happened in the second half of the season instead, we'd be looking at him as a late-round flyer at best.

Yu Darvish throws 'new pitch' in Saturday's intrasquad game

Yu Darvish threw his new pitch, a two-seam, splitter hybrid in Saturday's intrasquad game. Darvish called the new pitch the "Supreme."

Fantasy Impact

Darvish has around 10 pitching variations and will now have "The Supreme" to add to his arsenal. He was dominant in his last 24 starts, owning a (4-5) record with a 3.58 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and a 192:29 K:BB across 146 innings. Darvish has the potential to be a fantasy ace and is currently 19th among all pitchers in the latest expert consensus rankings.
