“It may be a bit of a gamble, but…” Darvish plays in SD until age 42, 6-year, 136 billion won contract

 Darvish Yu (36) signed a six-year contract extension with the San Diego Padres.

The US’MLB.com’ said on the 9th (local time), “Darvish may end his splendid career with the San Diego Padres.” According to sources, the veteran right-hander is 6 years and 108 million dollars (approximately 136 billion won) with San Diego. We have agreed to an extension of the contract.”

Darvish, who made his debut with Nippon Ham Fighters in Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) in 2005, applied for a major league posting after the 2011 season. He signed a six-year, $60 million (approximately 75.5 billion won) contract with the Texas Rangers and succeeded in entering his big league. Darvish recorded an average ERA of 3.90 in 29 games in the 2012 season, 16 wins, 9 losses, 89 runs (83 ERA) in 191⅓ innings. Following this, he marked an average ERA of 2.83 in the 2013 season and an average ERA of 3.06 in the 2014 season. Darvish, who missed the entire 2015 season due to injury, recorded an average ERA of 3.41 with 43 runs (38 ERA) in 100⅓ innings in 17 games in the 2016 season. 스포츠토토

However, in the 2017 season, Darvish started 22 games for Texas and recorded 6-9, 137 innings, 63 runs (61 earned), 4.01, and was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers. For the Dodgers, he appeared in 9 games and recorded an ERA of 3.44 with 4 wins, 3 losses, 49⅔ innings, and 20 runs (19 ERA). Darvish, who later qualified as a free agent (FA), wore a Chicago Cubs uniform. In his first season with the Cubs, he missed many games due to injury and went 1-3 in 8 games with a 4.95 earned run average in 40 innings. He marked an average ERA of 3.98 in the 2019 season and an ERA of 2.01 in the 2020 season, which was shortened due to the aftermath of Corona 19.

Ahead of the 2021 season, Darvish was traded to San Diego. Darvish marked an average ERA of 4.22 with 81 runs (78 ERA) in 30 games in the 2021 season, 8 wins and 11 losses in 166⅓ innings. However, he played an active role last season with an average ERA of 3.10 in 30 games, 16 wins, 8 losses, 194⅔ innings, 67 runs (67 earned runs). After this season, it was Darvish who obtained FA status, but he signed a six-year contract with San Diego and wore the San Diego uniform until the age of 42.

‘MLB.com’ said, “This contract is a gamble for San Diego. However, San Diego will be comfortable signing a contract with Darvish, who was active in the second half of his career and had his best season. Joe Musg signed a long-term contract last summer. “We have laid the foundation for the future starting rotation by extending the contract to Darvish following Rob. Blake Snell is expected to be on the free agent market next offseason, but two pitchers will be fixed in the starting rotation.”
