Cubs starter Yu Darvish apparently won't be coming off the 10-day disabled list anytime soon with the latest comments from manager Joe Maddon.

"I think we'll know more by the end of this coming week exactly what we think about hopefully being able to lay out a plan about getting him back," Maddon said Sunday to the media. "But we're not at that point yet."

Darvish signed a six-year, $126 million contract with the Cubs this offseason but has not had much success this season with a 4.95 ERA in eight starts and can't stay healthy as he has already been on the disabled list twice.

Maddon knows that have to be careful with his right triceps injury so they don't make it worse but rushing Darvish back.

"I think we tend to be a little bit more on the conservative side -- everybody does, not just us," Maddon said. "Everything is so scrutinized. If in fact, you permit somebody to come back too quickly and then all of a sudden he gets hurt again, you're going to get heavily criticized for it."

It appears that Darvish won't be returning to the rotation until near the All-Star break or even after it. The good news is that Mike Montgomery has filled in admirably in his absence and the team has not missed a beat.
