|Yu Darvish's deal with the Rangers looks like a bargain compared to the one Masahiro Tanaka received from the Yankees.|
He's a grinder with good stamina and focus. He competes and is all business on the mound. His fastball can touch 96 and he mixes a curve, slider, cutter and splitter with the splitter being the separator. Overall has good command and pitchability. But he has a flat plane and there's not much deception there. The splitter is a plus pitch, but the others aren't really plus pitches. His stuff and ceiling [are] below Darvish, but a solid pitcher that is ready for the big leagues.
