SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Sunday was another lighter day for Yu Darvish after he threw to hitters in an impressive 22-pitch session Saturday.

Darvish did some conditioning and PFP besides throwing off flat ground.

But before he went to the field, he ran into Michael Young in the trainers' room. Young said the two chatted briefly and shared a laugh or two.

"He can understand a little more [English] than he speaks," Young said. "He's a pretty funny guy. He's fitting in well. We've had great experiences with our Japanese teammates."

Young says having Darvish in the major leagues and in Texas is "great for baseball and great for our team."

Up next: Darvish will throw a five-minute bullpen session followed by 10 minutes to live hitters Monday, increasing his workload just a bit. We'll see how he does and feels.
