There's hope for Yu!

No walks -- not one -- pitching into the sixth inning. Left with one out (a strikeout) clinging to a 3-2 lead. Didn't get the W, but the fact remains, he faced 21 batters, striking out 11 of them, walking none.

There's hope for you. In case you didn't get it.

Only lasted 2  2/3 innings tonight, mostly because he allowed a blistering 7 free passes.

Get it? 'Blistering'.

What a roller coaster ride this guy is ...

Yu Darvish struck out six batters over 4 2/3 innings before departing with a blister issue in a Cactus League start against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Yu Darvish (P) CHI-N - Mar. 14

Darvish pitched four innings of one-run ball in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Rangers. He allowed three hits and two walks to go along with five strikeouts.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Darvish looked sharp against his former team and he now has his spring ERA down to a tidy 2.45 through three appearances.

The Wise Guy, writing for The Athletic:

Yu Darvish  Arthroscopic procedure to remove damaged tissue in his
elbow, which leaves open the possibility of future TJS. Yu is expected to be
ready for spring training. With good news he's going to climb up draft lists
but may still be a bargain. You would probably have to make him your #2 SP and
that is risky. If I did I would take another SP right away. If the spring news
is bad, like he's going to miss any time at all, I will back way off. Assuming
normalcy, $18.
