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.
