— Player Notes
Advice: Making his season debut, the right-hander looked like he hadn't missed a beat, giving up just three hits and a walk while throwing 81 pitches in the start. The start was his first since August 9, 2014, after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. Initial results were promising, but few Tommy John patients come back without any bumps along the way, and there will surely be some for the 29-year-old as well. His comeback will continue Friday against the Mariners.Sat, May 28 Rotoworld
Advice: He'll make his long anticipated season debut on Saturday against the Pirates. Darvish, who looked electric on his minor league rehab assignment, will be limited to 85-90 pitches in his first outing.Sat, May 28 Rotoworld
Advice: "That would be a good pitch count," Brocail said. "It all depends on how he looks during the game and how many pitches he has. We're not going to have him go out there and throw 150 pitches. Hopefully he gets out there and uses his fastball to get early outs and uses his pitches wisely and keeps us in the game." Darvish threw 87 pitches over six scoreless innings in his final rehab start Sunday with Double-A Frisco. He had a 0.90 ERA, 0.75 WHIP, and 21/6 K/BB ratio in 20 total rehab innings. The ace right-hander is returning from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Advice: He'll be good to go as long as he makes it through his rehab start Sunday for Double-A Frisco. Darvish has looked terrific during his rehab assignment, earning a stellar 1.29 ERA over four starts. The 29-year-old is 14 months removed from Tommy John surgery. Obviously Darvish needs to be owned and started in all fantasy formats.
