Masataka Nashida told reporters that he doesn't plan on starting Yu Darvish on a regular schedule. Instead, they'll likely set his starts based on location and whether or not there's a chance for a rain-out. Case in point: Darvish's first start after the All-Star break will likely be on the 29th against the Orix Buffaloes at Skymark Stadium. The Fighters won't start Darvish when they play games two games in Asahikawa (8/3 - 8/4) out of fear that rain might wash out his start. That would push Darvish's second start after the All-Star break to 8/6 vs the Rakuten Eagles at Sapporo Dome.
