Yu Darvish , Cubs Darvish 's injury-riddled 2018 had ripple effects across Chicago's roster: The Cubs picked up Cole Hamels ' million option this offseason partly as insurance in case Darvish gets hurt again, and that might have kept them financially hamstrung for shopping sprees like the Harper

Yu Darvish (ダルビッシュ 有 Darubisshu Yū, born 16 August 1986) is a Japanese professional baseball starting pitcher for the Chicago Cubs of Major League Baseball.

Texas closer Jose Leclerc pitched the ninth for the save, getting Willson Contreras on a fly out to center after Kyle Schwarber bunted away from the shift for a hit to bring the tying run to the plate.

Darvish walked seven of the first 13 batters in his first outing against his former team, failing to make it out of the third inning.

The Japanese star recorded nothing but walks and strikeouts to the first 10 hitters after the Cubs gave him a 3-0 lead, tying a career high by walking six the first time through the order.

Rougned Odor's RBI single was the first ball in play in the second. An inning later, Darvish's seventh walk set up Asdrubal Cabrera's first homer with the Rangers , a two-run shot for a 4-3 Texas deficit.

Darvish was gone a batter later after 75 pitches in 2 2/3 innings, the shortest regular season outing for the right-hander who spent his first five-plus seasons with the Rangers.

Pavel Buchnevich, and Brady Skjei also scored for the Rangers and Brett Howden had two assists. BOX SCORE: RANGERS 3, FLYERS 0 Strome scored late in the first period to give the Rangers a 2-0 lead when he went top shelf on Flyers goalie Carter Hart, who had only one defenseman helping him defend an odd-man rush. The goal was Strome's 17th of the season for the Rangers and 18th overall. He leads the NHL in goals for his new team after being traded this season.

Darvish represents a massive upgrade over previously projected fifth starter Mike Montgomery; with him in place, the Cubs are now solidly the preseason favorite to take home the NL Central crown. Now we wait to see if Darvish ’s signing opens things up for the starters still left on the market, primarily

Rangers rally with 5-run sixth to top Padres. Darvish -- signed to a six -year, 6 million contract -- posted a 4.95 ERA in eight starts in his first season with the Cubs . He did not pitch again in the Majors after landing on the disabled list, but attempted Minor League rehab outings in both June and August.

Darvish, who struck out four, missed the last four months of his first season with the Cubs because of elbow and arm injuries. Texas dealt the four-time All-Star to the Los Angeles Dodgers before the trading deadline in 2017.

Edinson Volquez's layoff was even longer, with his first big league start since July 5, 2017 coming off Tommy John surgery. The right-hander, who reached the majors with the Rangers 14 years ago and was later traded for Josh Hamilton, gave up four runs, six hits and four walks in four innings in his first Texas outing since 2007.

The Cubs had three straight run-scoring singles in the first inning, starting with Javier Baez after the cleanup hitter homered twice in a 12-4 Chicago win on opening day.

Schwarber added to his RBI single with a solo homer in the fifth , and Contreras followed his with two doubles. The first drove in another run, the second led to him scoring for a 6-3 lead.

Darvish struck out the first two hitters, including one of four strikeouts for leadoff hitter Shin-Soo Choo in his season debut after the Rangers' only 2018 All-Star wasn't in the lineup for the opener. Darvish followed with three straight walks before striking out Cabrera , who had three hits.

In the second, Darvish walked the first three before a strikeout of Choo, Odor's run-scoring hit and a fly out from Elvis Andrus.

Cubs: Another former Texas ace, Cole Hamels, faces is former team. He was 38-21 with a 3.90 ERA in 88 starts for Texas from 2015-18. Chicago acquired the left-hander from the Rangers before the trade deadline last year.
