Darvish (5-3) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over 6.2 innings in a win Monday over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Darvish hasn't failed to throw a quality start in his last eight outings, an eight-start span in which he owns a brilliant 62:11 K:BB. He induced 16 swinging strikes over 110 pitches in Monday's start as he had the Mariners off balance all night long. His ERA sits at 3.01 as his only problem this year has been a mild propensity for the home run ball (nine allowed in 12 starts, a 1.1 HR/9).

Darvish threw six innings Wednesday, surrendering five runs (three earned) on four hits and five walks, taking the no-decision against the Reds. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Darvish struggled with his command Wednesday, throwing just 56 of 100 pitches for strikes and walking five. The lack of command is uncharacteristic for Darvish, who had walked just four hitters in his previous six starts combined, a period in which he struck out 48. Yet despite throwing so many balls, Darvish managed to escape with a respectable three earned runs over six innings, keeping his ERA at 2.91 over 11 starts on the season. Although it doesn't count in most leagues, Darvish also hit his first major league home run and the first by a Rangers' pitcher since 1997, giving him at least one reason to smile. He'll next take the mound against the Mariners on Monday.

Darvish (4-3) held the A's to two runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out nine in a winning effort Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Pitchers coming back from Tommy John surgery often struggle to regain their control, but Darvish has looked laser-sharp when on the mound this year. He's issued only four walks while striking out 48 batters in his last six starts. The Japanese righty has been a bit prone to the long ball -- both of Wednesday's runs came on solo homers, and he's now given up nine in 59 innings -- but those don't hurt so badly when you're allowing so few baserunners.

Darvish (2-3) allowed no runs on five hits while striking out eight over seven innings, but received no decision Sunday at the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Darivsh left the contest with 3-0 lead, but the bullpen couldn't hold on, wasting his stellar effort. He's yet to allow more than three runs in any game since his return from the disabled list on May 28, and he owns a 2.78 ERA to go along with a 1.06 WHIP on the campaign. He's kept his ERA at or below 3.06 in each of the last three seasons, and he'll be heavily targeted in 2017 fantasy drafts. He'll make his next start Friday against the Tigers.

Darvish (2-3) allowed three runs on six hits over 6.1 innings Tuesday in Baltimore, ending up with a loss despite an impressive nine strikeouts with only one walk.

EDGE Analysis

While he hasn't been rewarded with wins, Darvish does sport a sparkling 26:2 K:BB over his last three starts. The Japanese pitcher also continues to go deeper and deeper into games in his return from Tommy John surgery, with this outing marking the first time he has pitched into the seventh inning this season. He's bound to start getting in the win column soon enough pitching for a competitive Rangers team, and his next chance to do so will come Sunday in Houston.

Darvish allowed two runs, four hits and no walks over six frames, but didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-4 loss against the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

After struggling with his command and surrendering a leadoff triple and solo shot in a rocky first inning, the right-hander settled in nicely as he allowed just two other batters to reach base before departing in the sixth with a one-run lead. The 29-year-old was in line to collect his first win since June 3, until the bullpen imploded and surrendered four runs in the eighth inning. Darvish will get another shot to add to the win column this Tuesday when he takes the mound in Baltimore.

Darvish (2-2) pitched six innings Friday, allowing three runs (two earned), seven hits and one walk while striking out 11 Royals in the loss.

EDGE Analysis

Darvish was outdueled by Royals' starter Danny Duffy, but left the game without much bad to be said about his performance. Making just his fifth start since August 2014 due to injury, Darvish amassed double-digit strikeouts for the first time since July 18, 2014. Friday also marked the right-hander's longest outing since returning, and his highest pitch total (91). The 29-year-old appears ready to pay dividends to those owners that have patiently waited for the Japanese star to return to form.

Darvish (2-1) (shoulder) mowed down nine Cubs over just 4.1 innings in Saturday's 3-1 loss, while giving up two earned runs on two hits and four walks.

EDGE Analysis

The returning righty certainly had his moments over his time on the mound, notching 13 swinging strikes and setting a new season high in strikeouts. The outing was Darvish's shortest on the season however, and was largely brought about by control problems that saw him equal a season high with four walks and throw 90 pitches. He'll try to get back on the winning side of the ledger on Friday versus the Royals.

Darvish (shoulder) was activated from the DL and will start Saturday's game against the Cubs, the Fort Worth Star Telegram's Jeff Wilson reports.

EDGE Analysis

It will be a tough matchup for the Rangers' ace's first start since June 8, but he should still be deployed in most formats. Darvish has a 2.87 ERA and 29.7 percent K-rate through three starts this year, but going deep into games has been an issue, as he is averaging just over five innings per start in his return from Tommy John surgery.

Darvish (shoulder) threw a bullpen on Wednesday and is expected to be activated off the disabled list to start on Saturday against the Cubs, Rangers Executive VP of Communications John Blake reports.

EDGE Analysis

Darvish will join a rotation in desperate need of depth. Along with Darvish, the Rangers currently have Derek Holland and Colby Lewis on the disabled list. Expect Darvish to be on a pitch count when he takes on the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Saturday. He hasn't pitched since June 8.
