Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The list of the best pitchers in the American League starts with Justin Verlander , Felix Hernandez , CC Sabathia and David Price . None of them is the best pitcher in the AL right now. That title belongs to Yu Darvish. If you're playing one game with everything on the line, give me Darvish. He's been that dominant to start the season. He has an American League-leading 58 strikeouts and a miniscule 2.33 ERA. His fastball. His slider. His changeup. His cutter. His curveball that loops to the plate at 61 mph. The 20,000 pitches that Darvish has at his disposal, as manager Ron Washington likes to say." - ESPN Analyst Todd Wills (ESPN.com, 'Nobody can touch Darvish right now', Source )

baseball almanac fast facts

Did you know that when Yu Darvish struck out Wil Myers on April 6, 2014 , it was his five-hundredth career strikeout? Did you know that Darvish reached the plateau in 401.2 innings pitched, the fastest any pitcher in Major League history reached the 500-strikeout plateau (in terms of innings pitched)?

The Major League record, before Darvish, was held by Kerry Wood , who struck out his five-hundredth batter in 404.2 innings pitched.

Exactly two Texas Rangers pitchers (none while the franchise was in Washington ), both righties, have led all American League pitchers in strikeouts: 1) Yu Darvish, 277 strikeouts in 2013 ( Top 25 ), and hall of famer Nolan Ryan , 232 strikeouts in 1990 ( Top 25 ) and 301 strikeouts in 1989 ( Top 25 ).

Yu Darvish was the 39th pitcher born in Japan to make it to the major leagues. When Darvish was named to his third All-Star Game in 2015 , he became the first and only Japanese-born pitcher named to three Midsummer Classics , surpassing Hideo Nomo ( 1995 ), Kazuhiro Sasaki ( 2001 & 2002 ), Shigetoshi Hasegawa ( 2003 ), Takashi Saito ( 2007 ), Hideki Okajima ( 2007 ) and Koji Uehara ( 2014 ).
