Yu DarvishSP | Cubs

Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein told reporters on Thursday that Yu Darvish (elbow) will start a throwing program in a couple of weeks.December 06, 2018 | 03:54 PM

Epstein also said that Darvish looks "strong and healthy," which is obviously good news. It was a lost season for the right-hander, as he was only able to throw 40 innings in 2018; none of them after May 21. He's still owed $101 million through 2023, and while there's still some upside in his right arm, there's just as much risk in the 32-year-old.
