The Winter of Yu continues. If you're already itching for more baseball this post-season, Yu Darvish's social media has got you covered.

Darvish uploaded a video to YouTube of him and a friend playing softball in their driveway, with Darvish throwing lefty. You can watch the video below.

In the description, Darvish says the throw types are: four seams, two seams, cuts, sliders, curves and change-ups. He also writes that "the control was bad today," but it's always cool to see a pro practicing casually at home during the offseason.

Despite being a right-handed pitcher and batter, Darvish has been known to occasionally throw left-handed in the bullpen or when just playing catch at Wrigley. There have been multiple reports that Darvish may be just as solid with his left as he is pitching right. Maybe this casual offseason practice session is a sign that he'll want to bring more left-handed pitches in 2020. Regardless, we're happy to see Wrigley's resident social media star giving us some baseball content to tide us over until next spring.
