Last week, Dodgers free agent pitcher, Yu Darvish tweeted out that there are six teams that he is considering offers from: Rangers, Cubs, Twins, Yankees and ironically, the Astros.
It took a while, but Jeff Wilson from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram has a source that says Darvish met with the Dodgers brass during this relatively quiet off-season.
“the Yankees now think it may be possible to recruit the right-hander on a five-year deal worth between $80 million to 90 million.” – theScore
Fans are almost split on their feelings towards Darvish after his heart-breaking performance in last year’s World Series. With over 5,000 votes on just twitter, Dodger fans have shown their support in re-signing Darvish.
Do you want Yu Darvish back in the Dodgers Pitching Rotation this upcoming season?
