Cubs’ Darvish leaves spring start due to blister


MESA, Ariz. — Chicago Cubs starter Yu Darvish left his spring start on Tuesday with a blister on his right ring finger, but he believes it won’t set him back for the start of the regular season.

“I felt pain right after I threw it but now I don’t feel any,” Darvish said afterward. “It’ll be good next outing.”

Darvish came out of the game after 4 2/3 innings in his second-to-last spring start. He said the blister opened up after he threw a slider. In the past, it has been his cutter that has produced an occasional blister.

“In 2013, the first game of the season, I almost had a perfect game,” Darvish recalled. “I had the exact same thing … I never had this before with the slider.”
