Yu Darvish held a bullpen session yesterday (10/28) and threw alongside Kazuhito Tadano and Brian Sweeney.
Said pitching coach Yoshii, "He's probably at about 20% right now. ... If you asked me who had better sessions, I'd have to say [Tadano and Sweeney] did. ... Based on my eyes, I'd say [Darvish] topped out at about 130km/h."
Part of Darvish's practice session currently involves playing catch at a distance of about 50 meters.
Nakagaki (Chief trainer): "He's able to do more now that he's feeling less tired."
Yoshii (pitching coach): "Realistically, it's a tough situation."
Nashida (manager): "If everything goes well, maybe he'll be able to pitch towards the end of the series. There's also a chance at some relief work. We'll see how he does from here."
