According to MLB.com’s Jon Paul Morosi the Cubs have inquired about the availability of RH Starting Pitcher Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers. They aren’t the only suitors for his services though.
Also Yahoo’s Jeff Passan reported early Friday that the Rangers have “started to gauge interest” in Darvish should they end up going in that direction.
Nothing is even remotely close cause the Rangers are said to be wanting to wait till the start of next week to talk but the recent 4 game sweep at the hands of the Orioles and a 2 point plunge in the WC standings has them thinking sooner then they wanted to.
Also The market for Darvish won’t be known until if/when Sonny Gray gets traded by the Oakland Athletics.
