Cubs’ Yu Darvish receives cortisone shot for elbow impingement

Darvish went to Texas to get another opinion on the sore triceps muscle that flared up again in a bullpen session Thursday. Following the Cubs’ 10-6 win over Montreal Canadiens Jersey Minnesota Kris Letang Jersey on Friday, team spokesman Peter Chase confirmed the right-hander had consulted with Dr. Keith Meister, an orthopedic surgeon who is one of the Texas Rangers’ team physicians.

During the visit, Darvish got a cortisone shot in the area. Chase said the injection would take three to five days to settle in.

Maddon said it was easy to tell something was wrong with the righty and that he wasn’t using a normal throwing stroke.

I watched his workout yesterday and you could tell that something wasn’t appropriate or right, Maddon said. So we had to take it to this next level and be patient with it.

Chris Gimenez, who caught Darvish in the bullpen, said, You could tell he wasn’t feeling the greatest.

Darvish had been scheduled to start Saturday against the Twins but will be replaced by Tyler Chatwood, who came off the paternity list.

Darvish signed a $126 million, six-year free-agent deal with the Cubs in February, but is just 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA in eight starts. He didn’t earn his first win until May 20 in Cincinnati, his final start before going on the disabled list on May 26 because of tendinitis in his right triceps.

Darvish had Tommy John surgery in March 2015, and returned on May 28, 2016.

The Sixers have enough salary cap space to sign James to a $35.6 million annual max contract that could potentially pair the free agent with rising stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

James opted out of the final year of his contract with the Cavaliers on Friday and the Lakers are rumored to be the front-runner to land the four-time MVP, though numerous teams have expressed interest.

James has yet to meet with the Cavs in person, but he and Paul reportedly spoke with Cleveland general manager Koby Altman on Sunday at the start of free agency.

Brennaman: I don’t think anything like that will happen again. I shouldn’t say that. I never say never… Those of us that were there that night will obviously never forget it. But I think it’s unlikely anyone will ever disrespect the anthem the way she did that night…

Rippley: With social media nowadays and the way it runs, which you’re well aware of, it would’ve been a different situation. It would’ve been all over. She’s probably on YouTube now, but it would have been the next day or three hours later. I think it would have been blown up a lot more.
