Yu Darvish’s Bullpen Session Went *VERY* Well Today

Chicago Cubs

One last bit from today before the Cubs get back to real baseball against the Pirates.

Yu Darvish, who is going through a very deliberate rehab process for his elbow issues, moved up his bullpen session to 35 pitches today, and unlike the last one – you know, the one that featured 10 pitches of “severe” pain before a mechanical adjustment – this one was apparently great the whole way through.

That is all just so very good. Obviously there’s also the “next day” caveat, but assuming he still feels good tomorrow and Thursday, he might throw another long bullpen on Friday or Saturday – by my estimate – and then his next session could be a simulated game against live batters. It’s *possible.*
