The Texas Rangers have activated 29-year old righty starting pitcher Yu Darvish off the D.L. Darvish is starting tonight against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He pitched in 5 games (all starts) in AA+AAA-ball on his rehab assignment and he was 1-1 with a 0.90 ERA and a 0.75 WHIP. He gave up only 9 hits and 6 walks while whiffing 21 batters in his 20 innings in the minors this year. Darvish has pitched in 83 games (all starts) in his first three years with the Rangers and he is 39-25 with a 3.27 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. Getting Darvish back should give the Rangers’ rotation a huge boost!
