Yu Darvish’s Brother Being Investigated For Illegal Gambling

The brother of Rangers star pitcher Yu Darvish, Sho Darvish, is being investigated by Japanese Authorities for running an illegal gambling ring. Sports Nation ran a report earlier today outlining the details of the investigation but their headline was very misleading and led one to believe that Yu Darvish was being investigated by authorities for illegal gambling.

MLB and MLB only has launched an investigation into Yu Darvish to see if he had any role in the gambling ring. It should be known that Yu is not under investigation for illegal gambling at this time but only being looked at as standard protocol to make sure that he wasn’t providing his brother with any news of injuries or players who would miss games.

Yu Darvish released this statement earlier today:


Unless more news of this story surfaces, it should be assumed that Yu Darvish had no role in this illegal gambling ring and be of no concern to Rangers fans.

The first ever game he attended was in September of '89 and Pete Incaviglia denied him an autograph after he had a bad batting practice session. Billy has held a grudge since. Billy is also a baseball coach who is known to dance around the dugout like Ron Washington during big plays in the game.
