And according to Mike Silva's New York Baseball Digest...odds are that the stud hurler might not even be posted.
I’m hearing Yu Darvish likely won’t be posted because of his ongoing divorce proceedings.
Apparently, his soon to be ex-wife’s lawyer wants to make sure his MLB salary is counted towards her settlement, and has already filed two depositions delaying their court appearance. Obviously, Darvish and his agent don’t want to post until the divorce is final.
Baseball, apple pie...divorce? See, who needs to be playing in America to have a future ex-wife cloud their future?
But just how good is the long locked, six-foot-five Darvish?
Damn good apparently.
Dude is the only pitcher in Nippon Professional Baseball history to post a sub-2.00 ERA for five consecutive seasons and that includes his 1.44 mark this year. He owns a career 93-38 record and is a two-time league MVP.
Oh...and he's just 24.
