According to a report filed by Nikkan Sports, the New York Yankees have apparently decided to start keeping closer tabs on Yu Darvish -- they've made plans to have two of their scouts in Japan attend Darvish's start against the Hanshin Tigers today.  This would be the second game the Yanks will be sending someone to check on Darvish -- they send Shoichi Kida to watch Darvish pitch on 3/27 against the Chiba Lotte Marines.

The New York Mets also had a couple of their scouts (Isao Ojimi and Russ Bove) at Darvish's last start on the 21st against the Yokohama Bay Stars.
