Cubs manager Joe Maddon said yesterday that he is unsure when Yu Darvish will resume throwing.

Darvish landed on the disabled list back on May 23 with tendinitis in his right triceps and was then diagnosed with a right elbow impingement last week. He received a cortisone shot in his throwing arm and was to be shut down from throwing for another 3-5 days, but that timetable is obviously longer now.

Darvish signed a six-year, $126 million deal in mid-February but lasted just seven weeks into the 2018 season before being shut down. He has a 1-3 record in eight starts with a 4.95 ERA, 4.7 BB/9 and 11.0 SO/9 through his first 40 innings.
