Yu Darvish leaves first spring start with arm tightness

3 Comments

For now the Rangers are saying it’s no big deal, but Yu Darvish exited his first spring training start today after just one inning and given his elbow problems last season it’s definitely worrisome.

Today’s issue is officially being termed tightness in his right triceps.

Darvish spent the final six weeks of last season on the disabled list, limiting him to just 22 starts and 144 innings. Before the injury he was his usual dominant self, posting a 3.06 ERA with 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
