Yu Darvish Lives On

On the heels of yesterday's news that ace Yu Darvish would be headed to the 15-day DL, he underwent a precautionary MRI today. Are you still holding your breath?

Exhale. According to the normal beat writers -- Jeff Wilson, Anthony Andro, etc. -- the MRI showed nothing serious, and according to Darvish himself, he's not too worried about it.

Now, I know Eric has been fairly vocal about this being the part of some plan on the part of the organization, a plan that, in a lot of ways, makes sense. Nevertheless, anytime a pitcher and "elbow inflammation" are mentioned in the same breath, it gives me pause to adopt a wait-and-see approach.

Now that we've seen, hopefully this is an issue that, with rest and rehab, will never be mentioned in any significant way again. Yu Darvish lives on, folks. We can continue living our lives now.
