Joe Maddon & Jed Hoyer watch as Yu Darvish takes the mound in key sim game.

Yu Darvish is stepping on the mound for the first time in Chicago since May 2nd in a simulated game. Darvish, who has been on the DL since May 26th, is still on the road to recovery, but attempts to return before the All-Star break. Although this is very unlikely, Darvish is on the right path.

The latest sim game update says Darvish has thrown 29 pitches in 2 innings. Reporters there have also said they’ve seen Darvish laughing and smiling during the sim game. A few good signs here.
