Yu Darvish probably won't be back in 2018.

On Sunday afternoon, Darvish made a rehab start against Great Lakes for the South-Bend affiliate of the Cubs and pitched only one inning giving up a hit, no runs, a walk, a strikeout in 19 pitches. His fastball had a decent life on it as it reportedly reached 94.7 MPH.

However, after warming-up (6 total pitches) before the start of the second inning, he threw a breaking ball and motioned with his right arm that something wasn't right. The trainer came to the mound and he was taken out of the ballgame.

This is another setback for Darvish's return with the Cubs and now the management must ponder whether they need to just shut him down this season so they don't risk his health for future seasons. He has been out since May 20 with right triceps soreness.

Darvish told reporters after the game that he wanted to be cautious after what he felt and requested an MRI for Monday.

"I feel most disappointed of everyone in the world, I think," he said via the Chicago Sun-Times.

Darvish is 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA this season.
