Yu Darvish (elbow) threw around 45 pitches in a simulated game on Tuesday morning.
It was broken up into three innings. Cubs president Theo Epstein indicated that the next step could be a minor league rehab assignment, at least assuming Darvish feels good on Wednesday. Darvish has been out since late May with a right elbow impingement and will require multiple minor league rehab starts before being cleared to rejoin the Cubs' rotation. Aug 14 - 11:52 AM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Astros are still engaged in talks for Gerrit Cole, but also looking at possible alternatives on the trade block and free agent market.

Nightengale doesn't say who those alternatives might be, so it could be a wide variety of available pitchers. With the moves made so far -- or lack thereof -- everything is still on the table. That could mean a possible deal with free agent Yu Darvish, a player the Astros were linked to in December. These things can change at a moment's notice, but it sounds like Houston isn't all that close to making the big splash we thought would happen Wednesday afternoon.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that the Twins are "considering a run at one of the big free-agent starters."

Heyman lists Yu Darvish, Jake Arrieta, Lance Lynn, and Alex Cobb among the top tier of available starting pitchers. Darvish and Arrieta might prove to be a little too rich for Minnesota given that late-inning relief help is also on the club's offseason shopping list, but Lynn or Cobb could make financial sense. Lynn owns a sharp 3.38 career ERA and fared pretty well in 2017, his first year after Tommy John surgery. St. Louis made him a one-year, $17.4 million qualifying offer earlier this month, which he is expected to reject.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that everyone on his pitching staff will be available in relief for Game 6 on Tuesday other than Clayton Kershaw and Yu Darvish.

Kershaw started Game 5 and Darvish is lined up for a potential Game 7. Alex Wood, who started Game 4 on Saturday and threw 5 2/3 innings, will be available on two days' rest but surely couldn't pitch more than an inning.

Rich Hill will start for the Dodgers in Game 2 of the National League Division Series.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts made the official announcement after watching Hill throw a simulated game on Tuesday afternoon. Clayton Kershaw will start Game 1 of the NLDS for the Dodgers and Yu Darvish will start Game 3. Alex Wood would probably handle a potential Game 4. Los Angeles will either be facing the Rockies or Diamondbacks, who are set to duel in Wednesday night's National League Wild Card Game at Arizona's Chase Field.
