Yu Darvish Breaks Out the Eephus Again

Super slow.

Yu Darvish's eephus pitch may be more than just a change of pace. For the second time this season, Darvish struck out a batter with the extremely slow pitch. This time, it was Adam LaRoche who fell victim to the 59 MPH eephus-like curve ball.

The last time Darvish recorded a strikeout with the eephus, it was against Adam Lind. Perhaps he only throws it against left-handed Adams?
