Yu Darvish

by on Jun.23, 2007 @ 6:00 am, under NPB

Darvish is another of the young, up-and-coming pitchers in the NPB. He's a righty listed at 196cm (6'5") and weighs in at 84kg (185 lbs). Darvish (21) is in his third season with the Nippon Ham Fighters. One would think that he'll also be targeted by MLB. And with a somewhat international background (Iranian father and Japanese mother), he'll probably have an easier time adjusting to the States (his parents met at Florida State and then moved back to Japan).

As luck would have it, he also started in a game today...

He left the game after the 9th with the score tied at 4. The Ham Fighters ended up winning the game in the top of the 11th on a Koyano 2-run homer.
