Yu Darvish Apologizes To Dodger Fans For World Series Struggles

Published

on

Following his team’s Game 7 loss to the Houston Astros in the World Series, Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Yu Darvish posted the following statement:

Darvish recorded just five outs in his Game 7 start while allowing five runs. He finished the World Series with an 0-2 record and 21.60 ERA in two starts, lasting only 1 2/3 innings each time- tied for the shortest outing of his career.

A little bit more recently, TMZ Sports caught up with Darvish out in Beverly Grove:

“Dodger fans… they expect we won the World Series. I couldn’t do it. I still feel sorry,” Darvish tells a reporter in thes video. “But I did give my 100%, so, that’s why I miss it.”

Darvish, 30, is set to become a free agent this offseason.

When asked in the video whether or not he will return to the Dodgers, Darvish said, “They’re a great team, the best team I think. That’s hard to say, but I only can say that they’re the best team.”

In five Major League seasons since 2012 (missed 2015), Darvish is 56-42 with a 3.42 ERA and 11.04 strikeouts-per-nine in 131 games (all starts).

After being acquired from the Texas Rangers on July 31, Darvish was 4-3 in nine starts with a 3.44 ERA for the Dodgers. In four playoff starts, he was 2-2 with a 6.14 ERA. Started strong, ended horribly- and in the biggest spot.

Can’t help but feel a little for Darvish. But he’ll bounce back.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are officially back in the Bryce Harper sweepstakes as Harper’s negotiations with the Philadelphia Phillies continue to stall.

According to MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez, the Dodgers have found their way “back in the mix” for Harper, with Dodgers manager Dave Roberts among a contingent who went to Las Vegas on Saturday to meet with Harper.

While Harper is eyeing a long-term contract, the Dodgers may be angling with a short-term deal, which makes their involvement, and Harper’s engaging with them, interesting.
