Thought this might be an interesting stat...

According to Sponichi: Yu Darvish is now 14-9 with a 2.54 ERA in 36 outdoor stadium games.  When pitching in domed stadiums: 116 games, 72-25 with a 1.92 ERA.  Sponichi also notes that his outdoor stadium game stats have improved each year since 2009.

It should probably be noted that players in the PL tend to play in a lot of domed games, especially players on teams like the Nippon Ham Fighters (Sapporo Dome), Softbank Hawks (Yahoo Dome), Seibu Lions (Seibu Dome), and Orix Buffaloes (Kyocera Dome).
