Ron Washington: Yu Darvish still growing
By Todd Wills
There is still another level for ace Yu Darvish to reach.
Everyone was reminded of that when Darvish was staked to a 2-0 lead in the sixth inning Saturday and gave it right back with a two-run home run by the Chicago White Sox's Adam Dunn. The Rangers eventually lost to the White Sox, 3-2.
Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington, during his weekly appearance on Fitzsimmons & Durrett on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM, said to remember that Darvish is just in his second season in the major leagues.
"He's still making adjustments and he's still growing," Washington said. "As we move forward, he'll get better in those situations. He just has to go through the process, and that's what he's doing right now, going through the process."
