Not even a tornado warning will stop Yu Darvish from warming up

Chicago had a tornado warning, but that didn’t stop San Diego Padres pitcher Yu Darvish from warming up ahead of his game against the Cubs.

Last offseason, the Chicago Cubs traded pitcher Yu Darvish for him San Diego Padres. While Darvish got to start against his former team last season, he didn’t get a chance at Wrigley Field. But on Monday, June 13, he returned to Chicago to start for the Padres.

However, the start of the game was delayed due to a tornado warning in Chicago. Even with the inclement weather and wailing tornado sirens, that wouldn’t stop Darvish from warming up.

Tornado warning doesn’t stop Yu Darvish from warming up

In his previous start against the Cubs on June 9, 2021, Darvish knocked out eight batsmen but gave up two earned runs with three hits in seven innings in the 3-1 loss.

As this game begins, Darvish holds a 3.61 ERA, a 1,010 WHIP, and a 5-3 win-loss record in 11 starts. Darvish struck out 54 batters and went 15 in 67.1 innings of work.

Nothing would stop Darvish from getting into his groove before the game started. No potential tornado or the loud wailing of sirens in the distance. Darvish was ready to go Monday night. Not even a tornado warning will stop Yu Darvish from warming up
