Tsuyoshi Wada (BAL) will be evaluated by Dr. Lewis Yocum on April 30.
"Nothing has been decided yet. I feel frustrated, but the most important thing now is to get better as soon as possible so I can start throwing again. ... I can not make this decision myself. If I have surgery, it will be Tommy John," said Wada.
Nikkan Sports mentions a Buster Olney Insider Article entitled Yu Darvish's specialized skill that reveals the upside down L catcher signal. A separate Nikkan Sports article brings up how Darvish owns the top two TV ratings day for Rangers games on Fox Sports Southwest: debut game at 10.7 and start vs Yankees at 10.0.
And ESPN's Wallace Matthews has an interesting article up on why the Yanks did not go after Darvish.
