Yu Darvish is set to have an MRI done on his arm today and it’s not looking good.
Joe Maddon told 670 the score (@670thescore) that there was not just stiffness or soreness in the arm. He went on to say that Darvish was in pain and that he could not shake it despite trying to throw a few times. Here is the exact tweet from Brett Taylor of Bleacher Nation:
I am very concerned about this, and I think this is something serious. If Darvish is out for an extended period of time the Cubs may try to grab a started at the deadline.
We will update you on our twitter @1N2W_ as soon as we find out the results of his MRI later today.
