The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed pitcher Yu Darvish on the 10-day disabled list. He’s going on the DL with back tightness.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed the news on Saturday. The move, according to the team, was made out of caution.

Darvish was acquired by the Dodgers in a blockbuster deal with the Texas Rangers at the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline.

In his first game at Dodgers Stadium, he was pulled from the game in the seventh inning without throwing a pitch. The team said, he later admitted to teammate Clayton Kershaw that he was dealing with back tightness.

Kershaw reportedly convinced Darvish to come out of the game. In addition, he reportedly told the Japanese pitcher, “We need you really bad in six weeks.”

Darvish has made three starts with the Dodgers since the trade. He has a 2.50 ERA along with 22 strikeouts and four walks.

This season, he’s 8-9 with a 3.83 ERA in 155 innings. He’s started 25 games while striking out a 170 and walking 49.
