Eickhoff is the most dependable Phillies starter, while Darvish paces Texas. Eickhoff looked improved after a string of shaky starts.
But he is not the caliber of Darvish, who until Tuesday had never faced the Phillies but built a reputation in the American League as one of the game's dominant arms.
conversation with his wife helped him find the needed perspective to not just snap out of it, but become one of the best hitters in the league for the second half of the 2015 season.
The red-hot Choo played a pivotal role in the Rangers' remarkable come-from-behind division win.
"When that's the first time a team sees him, it has to be tough, especially the way he located it." The Phillies pushed Darvish in the later innings.
They put a man in scoring position in the fifth, sixth, and seventh.
No one has said definitively that the Rangers will sell on Darvish or Hamels, but if the team comes out of the break cold and falls even further back of the Astros and the second wild-card spot there are reports starting to surface that the team may consider selling either one of the pitchers.
If that happens, then a sell-off may be the right way to go, especially considering that Darvish's contract is up at the end of the season and Hamels has two years on his contract worth more than million.It was just after his June 2nd start when the wheels began to turn.Darvish had faced the Astros at home, and while he had held them scoreless for four innings, Houston eventually broke through in the fifth, scoring three runs and ultimately ending Darvish’s day.But a bombshell did drop on Monday afternoon concerning one of the biggest pieces that could be on the market.The Texas Rangers have reportedly shown known no signs they will trade righty Yu Darvish.
