Well Balanced Darvish Does It All

No, the scouting reports on Yu Darvish weren’t misleading. The right handed pitcher doesn’t have a seventh pitch in his arsenal that comes from his left hand.

As Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News explains:

He occasionally plays catch left-handed to keep both of his arms strong and, therefore, equally balanced. It is one of the unique elements Darvish includes in his training.

Nolan Ryan just turned over in his grave, and he’s not even dead yet.

  1. I hear it won’t even say Darvish on the back of his jersey. It’s just going to be a big Yin Yang symbol.

  2. needs to keep balance in the force?

  3. Is he using a left handed glove in his right hand? Or does he rock it Jim Abbot style?

    • I was thinking the same thing. Definitely looks like he just put his normal glove on the wrong hand.
