Yu Darvish news: The Texas Rangers have announced that starting pitcher Yu Darvish will make his next rehab start on Thursday, for the Round Rock Express. Darvish is expected to go 4 IP or 60 pitches in that start.
This will be Darvish's third rehab start, as he continues to work his way back from Tommy John surgery. At 60 pitches, he will likely make at least one more rehab start after this one, and then a determination will likely be made if he is ready to be activated, or if he should do another rehab appearance.
Darvish pitched two scoreless innings for Frisco against Corpus Christi on May 1, and then followed that up with a 3 IP, 1 run outing for the Round Rock Express on May 6. Reports on his stuff have been positive, with Darvish throwing in the mid-90s while flashing the impressive array of offspeed stuff that makes him so much fun to watch.
