Watch: Yu Darvish Throws Light Bullpen Session

No spikes in the bullpen room. Yu Darvish told reporters at Cubs Convention that he was 100 percent pain-free and had been throwing long-toss from 120 feet, but the real test would be ramping up with bullpen sessions. The rehabbing righty shared a brief glimpse into his mound work with an Instagram post Monday.

Captioned, “No spikes light bullpen!” the very quick video doesn’t tell us much. But Darvish does appear to be moving free and easy with another month to go before pitchers and catchers report. I’ve got a feeling he’s going to shove this season.
