Rangers ace Yu Darvish, who missed the final six weeks of the season with an elbow injury, has been cleared to resume throwing.
T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that an MRI exam came back clean, so Darvish will begin his usual offseason throwing schedule. He’s expected to do some throwing in early December.
Before being shut down Darvish was his usual fantastic self with a 3.07 ERA and 182 strikeouts in 144 innings, posting a double-digit strikeout rate for the third time in three MLB seasons.
