Darvish will start Game 7 of the World Series against the Astros on Wednesday, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Darvish allowed four earned runs off six hits and one walk in 1.2 innings during Friday's Game 3 loss in Houston, but receives a shot at redemption from manager Dave Roberts ahead of the winner-take-all Game 7. He will once again be opposed by Lance McCullers, as both pitchers are coming in on normal rest. During Darvish's first two postseason starts, prior to Game 3 on Friday, the right-hander allowed just two earned runs while striking out 14 over 11.1 innings to help the Dodgers reach the World Series.

Darvish will start Game 3 of the World Series against the Astros on Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After throwing for a 3.44 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over nine starts with the Dodgers following a trade from the Rangers at the end of July, Darvish has been absolutely dialed in during the postseason. He's gone 2-0 over his two starts (11.1 innings) and logged a 14:1 K:BB while allowing just two runs. He'll look to carry his recent success into Friday's game against a high-powered Houston offense.

Darvish will not make another start before the end of the regular season, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Darvish was originally expected to make his final start of the regular season Sunday, but the Dodgers will instead turn the game over to their bullpen. The 31-year-old, who owns a 3.44 ERA and 61:13 K:BB through nine starts with the Dodgers, will now use simulated outings to stay sharp for his next start, which will come in the playoffs. He's lined up to start Game 3 of the NLDS on Oct. 9.

Darvish (10-12) allowed just one run on two hits while striking out nine across seven innings in a dominant victory over the Padres on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander asserted his dominance against one of the league's worst offenses, tossing over 70 percent of his pitches for strikes and letting just three Padres traverse the base paths. Darvish now has a 3.44 ERA and four victories since joining the Dodgers. He lines up to make one more start during the regular season on the road against the Rockies.

Darvish didn't factor into the decision Tuesday in Philadelphia despite allowing just one unearned run on four hits with one walk and seven strikeouts over 5.1 innings.

EDGE Analysis

The only damage against Darvish came after a Cody Bellinger error opened the door for a Rhys Hoskins RBI single in the sixth inning that put runners on first and second while ending the Japanese pitcher's night. He was bailed out by the bullpen in that inning, but Philadelphia struck for four runs in the next inning to erase the possibility of a Darvish win. Darvish's next start Monday against the league-worst Padres offense could be a dominant one.

Darvish (3-3) fired seven shutout innings while allowing just three hits and striking out five in a winning effort over the Giants on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

After taking losses in his last three starts (9.49 ERA), Darvish got back into the win column with an ace-like performance. He needed just 87 pitches to complete seven frames and did not allow an extra-base hit. The 31-year-old will look to build off of Wednesday's outing with favorable matchups against the Phillies and Padres -- who both rank in the bottom third of the league in wOBA -- in his next two starts.

Darvish (2-3) took the loss after giving up five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six over 4.1 innings against the Rockies on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Darvish cruised through four frames before coming unraveled in a four-run fifth inning. The Dodgers' prized deadline acquisition has struggled since moving west (5.34 ERA in six starts), but he has maintained his lofty strikeout rate (11.9 K/9) to ease the blow to his owners' ERAs. On a positive note, Darvish became the fastest pitcher to notch 1,000 strikeouts, accomplishing the feat in 128 games. His next start comes against the Nationals next Friday.

Darvish (2-2) took the loss to the Padres in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, allowing five runs on eight hits and three walks over three innings. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

This was an uncharacteristic flop for Darvish, which was all the more surprising given that it came against the Padres' "B" lineup in the nightcap. Darvish allowed three runs or fewer in each of his first four starts for the Dodgers, and this outing will likely prove to be nothing more than a blip on the radar. Up next for Darvish, a home matchup against the Rockies.

Darvish will start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader in San Diego, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nothing changes regarding the day Darvish was set to pitch next, but this simply confirms that he will pitch the nightcap against the Padres. The Dodgers have not yet announced who will start Game 1.

Darvish (8-10) allowed three runs -- all earned -- on six hits in five innings of a 3-2 loss to the visiting Brewers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

He also struck out seven but walked three in what was his fourth start with the Dodgers. After back-to-back 10-strikeout road victories to start his Los Angeles career, Darvish has underwhelmed at home against the White Sox and Brewers, so he'll need to wait a few turns in the rotation before he gets another shot at his first victory at Chavez Ravine. The Japan native will next take the hill Saturday in San Diego.
