Cubs News: Yu Darvish jokes about his blister: "I put pee on it"
|Friday, March 22, 2019, 2:47 PM- -|
Cubs starting pitcher Yu Darvish has been impressive this spring.
However, during his last start, he had to leave the game early with two outs in the fifth inning with a blister on his right ring finger.
The blister has healed mostly, and he was able to do a bullpen session on Friday morning and hopeful of making his scheduled session on Sunday and then a regular-season start against the Rangers.
Darvish joked with the media on Friday that he had peed on his blister to try to heal it as a few teammates had given him this ridiculous advice.
"I put pee on it, Darvish laughed. No No No (I didn't)."
It appears that Darvish is having a lot more fun in 2019 and that can only spell good things for the Cubs and their fanbase this season.
