He's really picked it up lately. He looked good yesterday. Sharp movement on his breaking pitches and much better command and control. Could be an SP3 down the stretch.

This was a really insightful article. Looks like having Caratini catch him instead of Contreras has helped a ton.

That's a good theory, but the real reason he is doing so much better is that I finally dropped him 4 weeks ago when his ERA was still over 5. FML

Kinda old news now but Yu is 4th in bb% in the MLB since June 10th, just killing it. https://fantasy.fangraphs.com/yips-darvish-is-no-longer/ - Fangraphs was on his changes and along with the Pitcherlist article above it's clear Yu is back (duh) and should be good to go. Pretty happy owner here after a nightmare start. 

Same here. Glad I held on. I was so close to giving up at several points this year.

Right there with ya. I trashed him, claimed I was going to drop him multiple times, called him an idiot, etc. 

Sometimes it pays to have small balls I guess.

Over his last 6 starts he has a 44K to 2BB ratio in 35 2/3IP.

I swore off him last season.  I might be back next season.

Still pretty bad in QS leagues. Even when he deals, pitch count usually too high and Maddon likes to go get him. Better in leagues that count Wins.

Nice to see Yu turn it around. Just wished it would have happened sooner. My faith in him is paying off now, but it sure killed me earlier in the year.

I'm still not fully convinced he's "back" yet. Definitely a player to keep an eye on, but it also could just be a good stretch of games. It's never really been about whether Yu has this level of talent in him, but whether he can produce at this level on a consistent basis. 5 strong starts in a row is a good sign, but I still want to see a larger sample size.

After tonights starts I'm so happy I held onto him earlier in the year. Could be a real difference maker for the playoffs.

The fall from grace was quick.  Not even a confident streamer at his point.  

The revival was quicker than the fall, I guess.
