Rizzo: Nationals Scouted Yu Darvish

General manager Mike Rizzo has acknowledged that the Nationals scouted right-hander Yu Darvish several times this year.

Darvish, 26, plays for the Nippon Ham Fighters of the Pacific League in Japan and is considered a dominating pitcher, with a career 2.12 ERA in 1,036 1/3 innings, striking out 974 batters and walking 297.

Darvish helped Japan win the World Baseball Classic in 2009.

"We are open to acquire talent any way, shape or form that we can," Rizzo said. "If it's international talent, we are certainly willing to acquire international players." - MLB
