Who Is Yu Darvish's Mystery Team? Pitcher's Tweet Sparks Speculation

J.D. Martinez Diamondbacks Red Sox

As Wilson noted, the pitcher "loved his time with them" and would sign, but Texas is not planning to go after any high-priced free agents this offseason, likely ruling them out of the competition. Phillies ownership continues to make a push to get their trophy back, and this latest story in a quiet offseason is particularly intriguing.

Darvish was responding to a report from Max Wildstein of Sporting News, which stated that the free agent starter has received ongoing interest from the Rangers, Yankees, Cubs, Astros, and Twins.

According to what I'd say is a reliable source, there's a sixth mystery team involved.

The 31-year-old Darvish, who has a 56-42 record since moving to the majors with the Rangers in 2012, was in December considered the top pitcher on this winter's free agent market.

This means the Yankees still have a chance, if they want, to land Cole. But before that, Darvish had a 3.29 ERA over his first four seasons. Two players NY has been heavily linked to are pitchers Yu Darvish and Gerrit Cole, and today's Yankees rumors roundup involves both of these players, and one of them identifies the Yankees as a favorite for his services.

Unless Philadelphia can get Darvish to agree to a shorter deal where they overpay him it's unlikely they can sign him. A five or six-year deal somewhere in the range of $80-100 million with a playoff contender is the likeliest outcome.
