Chicago Cubs: This season is very important for Yu Darvish

Right now, Yu Darvish is diligently working to recover from his injuries last season. After only pitching in 40 innings in 2018, many wonder what the Cubs will get out of the hard-throwing righty. Will he be fully healthy for spring ball? How effective will he be?

This is the not only the biggest question for him but the biggest question for that starting rotation period. The man who from 2012-2017 sported an 11.0 K/9 and 3.42 ERA has tons of talent when he is fully healthy and him being that for the Cubs is absolutely huge.

Injures, of course, can be a factor for anyone at any given time, but this is already an issue being worked on. Darvish has been documenting his workouts recently on Twitter. Hopefully, a year removed from a full season workload, the righty can get back to dominating opponents in 2019.
