Another culprit? Yu Darvish’s numbers worsen from substance use punishments

Many ancient customs and manners changed in baseball from the MLB as of Season 2021. One of these was the use of prohibited substances by pitchers to improve their monticular work. The new measures implemented by the circuit in response to this made pitchers like Yu Darvish were hit as the Japanese’s numbers worsened since the penalties were announced.

Yu Darvish came to the San Diego Padres for the 2021 MLB Season under the banner that he would be one of the strong cards of the starting rotation, which includes names like Blake Snell and Joe Musgrove.

The Japanese has diminished in his monticular work from the beginning to this point of the campaign and curiously an even greater gap is noted as a result of the Major League announcing that there would be penalties for those who use substances to improve their pitching.

The journalist Danny Vietti was given the task of comparing the effectiveness of the months of the campaign and in June, before the mentioned announcement, he had an ERA of 3.07; and now, in September, it tripled its numbers with an effectiveness of 9.95.

This could be evidence that the ban on substance abuse affected more than one pitcher, who have complained against MLB about this situation, arguing that it also puts their health at risk.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
