Sporting News has a report up stating that Yu Darvish is currently under investigation for his possible role in an illegal gambling ring that was run by his brother Sho Darvish. Sho was arrested in October by Japanese for taking $150,000 worth of bets. The bets included 16 MLB and 28 Japanese professional baseball games. It’s unknown if any of those games included the Texas Rangers. Yu missed the entire 2015 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.
“We are aware of this situation and are looking into it, per our standard protocols,” MLB’s vice president for communications Michael Teevan told The Japan Times.
