Yu Darvish is back.
He may not be back for long, mind you. Just when Darvish seems to be putting himself together, he tends to fall apart again, much to the chagrin of the Texas Rangers.
For now, they can hope. Darvish has pitched well in his last three starts, and he showed no ill effects from having to be skipped a start with a bad wheel when he took the mound on Tuesday night. Against the Tampa Bay Rays, he put together his best start in months.
We'll see if he can keep it up, but for the time being, it's time to welcome Darvish back to the American League Rookie of the Year race. For the first time in several weeks, he has a spot in this week's rankings for the award.
Scroll ahead to see where he ranks in the top five.
