Leg cramps force Yu Darvish from another start

4 Comments

Overshadowed by the Pirates beating the Rangers last night to clinch their first winning season since 1992 is that Texas ace Yu Darvish left the game with leg cramps.

Todd Willis of ESPN Dallas reports that the Rangers are calling it a minor injury and for now at least Darvish is expected to make his next start, but the cramping forced him from the eighth inning of a 1-0 game after just 81 pitches and he previously had similar cramping issues in a start last month.

He’s scheduled to face the A’s on Saturday afternoon, which is about as important as a start can get.
