Injury Update: Yu Darvish Throws 35-pitch Bullpen, Felt ‘Nothing’ in Elbow

A-Rod had better cover his ears, because we have an injury update on Yu Darvish. The injured righty threw a bullpen session today in Pittsburgh and the reports afterward are some of the most positive we have seen throughout this whole process.

You may recall that Darvish felt some pain early in his last bullpen attempt, after which he made a mechanical adjustment to alleviate that pain. With a pain-free bullpen session today, things appear to be headed in the right direction. While we still do not have an exact timetable on when Darvish may be able to rejoin the Cubs pitching staff, these steps are a good place to start.

A brief note on the situation with A-Rod, Darvish responded to the comments by staying on the high road, as he did during the World Series responding to the racist gesture of the Astros’ Yuli Gurriel.
