MESA, Ariz. (AP) - If Yu Darvish was tipping his pitches in the World Series last year, he seems to have fixed it.
Darvish threw two hitless innings in his spring training debut for the Chicago Cubs, facing his former teammates on the Los Angeles Dodgers.
When last on the mound, Darvish was chased by Houston after getting just five outs in both Games 3 and 7 of the World Series. Darvish said he was moved to lose 15 pounds "because of what happened in the World Series."
Darvish was concerned about the possible impact of the weight loss on his velocity but those worries seemed unwarranted Tuesday.
