Yu Darvish will not be returning to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the right-hander agreed to a long-term deal with the Dodgers’ NLCS opponent:
Darvish joins Brandon Morrow as the second Dodgers’ pitcher to join the Cubs.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports on the reigning NL champions’ involvement in the Darvish sweepstakes:
Darvish was 4-3 with a 3.44 ERA, 3.38 FIP and 61 strikeouts in nine starts after joining the Dodgers in a deadline deal from the Texas Rangers. He also went 2-2 in the postseason, being infamously remembered for rough outings in Game 3 and Game 7 of the World Series.
