After high school, Darvish was drafted to play for a professional baseball team in the Japanese league, the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters. He played for the team for seven years, during which he won two Pacific League MVP awards, led the league in strikeouts five times, and helped his team win a Japan Series Championship in 2006. In 2011, Darvish announced his intention to play in Major League Baseball in the United States, which led to his posting by the Nippon-Ham Fighters and eventually being signed by the Texas Rangers.

Since joining the Rangers, Darvish has continued to excel in his career. He has been named an All-Star four times, finished as the American League Cy Young Award Runner-Up in 2013, and has led the league in strikeouts three times. While injuries have slowed down his career at times, Darvish continues to be a force to be reckoned with on the mound, with a career record of 64-49, 3.43 ERA, and 1,060 strikeouts in 961 innings pitched. Darvish's dedication and passion for baseball have made him one of the most respected and accomplished pitchers of his generation. Read even more about Yu Darvish at Wikipedia
