Yu Darvish to be Posted Today

by kelly on December 8, 2011

Let the frenzy begin! Japanese starting pitcher Yu Darvish is expected to be posted today by his team, the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters. He’s a very attractive option for many teams looking for starting pitching. Considered possibly the best player in Japanese baseball, Darvish is just 25 years old and had a 1.44 ERA in 232 innings pitched last season. Agent Don Nomura first tweeted the announcement.

Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com speculates that the Yankees, Rangers, and Blue Jays could be in on the young starter.

Personally I think the Yankees are going to throw big bucks to get this guy, as I can’t see them staying quiet all winter. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the Marlins either though, the way they are spending like there’s no tomorrow.

Spread the Rumor!
