Yu Darvish to Return to Rangers Rotation on Saturday

July 13th, 2016

After missing all of the 2015 season following Tommy John Surgery, Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish sat out the first month of the 2016 campaign while recovering. He then returned to post a 2-0 record with a 2.87 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in three starts. 

Unfortunately, Darvish was placed back on the shelf with shoulder and neck injuries, costing him a month and a half. 

The former Rangers ace will now return to the bump Saturday against the Chicago Cubs. 

From a fantasy perspective, we should hold off on adding Darvish. The expectation here has to be that the first-place Rangers will ease him back into a large-scale role in their rotation. Let's see how the next two starts go before considering him a realistic DFS option.
