San Diego’s Darvish ‘placed on injured reserve’ with elbow soreness

Japanese pitcher Darvish Yu (36), who plays alongside Kim Ha-Sung (27) for the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball, will be out of action for the time being due to elbow pain.

Darvish was placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL) with right elbow inflammation, reported.

The IL stint is retroactive to July 27.

Darvish, a right-handed hard-throwing pitcher, has been somewhat underwhelming this season with an 8-10 record and a 4.56 ERA.

Notably, his season ERA is his worst since entering the majors, with the exception of a 4.95 mark in 2018, when he was limited to just eight starts due to an elbow injury.

His last three starts have been even worse, with three losses and a 7.31 ERA without a win.

바카라사이트Nevertheless, San Diego will be without Darvish, and his departure will leave a huge hole in their starting rotation.

Sinking to fourth place in the National League West, San Diego is also eight games behind the third-place Arizona Diamondbacks in the race for the league’s wild card.

San Diego, which has made a number of big-money signings in recent years but has seen the team underperform due to poor investments, signed Darvish to a six-year, $180 million contract in February.

Even if the team underperforms this season, Darvish will still be paid through 2028, when he turns 42.
