Darvish pitched a total of 44 balls in addition to fastballs, including five types of changing balls such as curves, sliders, and change-ups.

"I'm glad I was throwing the ball vigorously. There are a few candidates for the opening pitcher, but if they stay in the latter half of last season, they may be the opening pitcher," said Tommy Hotby, pitcher coach. , Was highly appreciated.
