Played together for the Dodgers from the middle of 2017 “We’re good friends”
Padres pitcher Yu Darvish will start in Game 2 of the district series against his former home Dodgers on the 12th (Japan time 13th). Pitcher Clayton Kershaw said, “Including pitching, I respect Darvish. It will be a tough challenge for us.”
The two have been wearing the same uniform since the middle of 2017, and their home in Dallas is about five minutes away. The left-hander with 197 wins in total said, “Darvish is a good friend. We played catch together in Dallas during the offseason. We played together in the second half of the season.” It was the seventh game of the 2017 season, so I’m sure Yu felt the same way,” recalling the 2017 loss to the Astros.
Darvish also said of the pitching with Kershaw, “I’m happy and proud to be able to pitch again on a stage like this.” I wonder what kind of confrontation the two arms will show on the big stage.
