“I want to come back and pitch this season”…’Elbow sore’ Darvish vows to return, but SD fall baseball hopes fade

“I will come back and pitch this season.”

San Diego Padres Japanese starting pitcher Darvish Yu has been placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL). ”San Diego’s postseason hopes took another serious hit when Darvish was placed on the 15-day DL with right elbow inflammation,” MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, reported.

“Darvish underwent further tests to determine the extent of the injury,” MLB.com reported. ”San Diego has not yet released the results, but Darvish expressed hope for a return after the St. Louis Cardinals game on Sept. 29,” according to MLB.com.

“I don’t think this season is over,” Darvish said. My plan is to come back and pitch this season,” he said, adding, “Obviously, I don’t feel good. My responsibility is to pitch for the team and contribute to winning. So it’s disappointing.”

Darvish signed a six-year, $108 million extension with San Diego before the season. In 24 games this season, Darvish is 8-10 with a record of 136.2 innings pitched, 71 runs (69 earned) allowed, 51 walks, 141 strikeouts, a 4.56 ERA, and a 1.30 WHIP. Compared to last season, he’s underperforming. Last season, he was 16-8 in 30 games, 194⅔ innings, 67 runs (67 earned), 49 walks, 197 strikeouts, and a 3.10 ERA with a 0.95 WHIP.

In five August starts, Darvish was 3-3 with a 4.66 ERA, 4.66 WHIP and 1.34 WHIP in 29 innings pitched, 16 runs (15 earned), eight walks and 24 strikeouts. He was pulled from a start against the Milwaukee Brewers on July 26 after allowing five runs (five earned) on six hits (one homer) with two walks and three strikeouts in four innings, and it was later revealed that he had an elbow issue.

Darvish was initially scheduled to start against St. Louis on Aug. 31, but the injury forced Rich Hill to start in his place. Hill went four innings, allowing three runs (three earned) on five hits (one home run) with one walk and two strikeouts. But for the second night in a row, Tommy Hyun-Soo Edmon gave up a game-tying hit. Leading 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth with two runners on and two outs, Edmon hit a two-run homer off Josh Hader.카지노

San Diego, which has lost two straight, is in fourth place in the National League West with a 62-72 record. With 28 games left in the regular season, they are eight games out of a wild-card spot. Hope is fading. Without a postseason berth, there’s no reason to rush Darvish back.
