Though Darvish turned things around after his injury-marred debut season with the Cubs in 2018, his numbers over the last two years are startlingly similar to Davies’. Darvish had almost twice as many strikeouts per 9 innings as Davies in 2019 and ’20, but otherwise it basically was a push: Darvish was 14-11 with a 3.39 ERA in 43 combined starts, throwing 254 2/3 total innings and averaging 11.4 strikeouts per 9; Davies was 17-11 with the Brewers and Padres, with a 3.30 ERA in 43 starts, throwing 229 innings and averaging 6.5 strikeouts per 9.
