Darvish corrects himself on Twitter, says Yankees did make offersports theScore
Yu Darvish appears to just be confusing himself now.
Hours after tweeting the New York Yankees had not made him a contract offer, the free-agent right-hander abruptly reversed course and revealed in a new tweet that he was mistaken: There was, in fact, an offer from the Yankees after all.
However, he poured cold water on a report that had stated their offer was seven years and $160 million.
Darvish has been fueling speculation about his next home on social media in recent weeks. After a report on Wednesday suggested five teams were finalists for his services, he used his Twitter account to announce a sixth mystery team had also entered the sweepstakes.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman acknowledged his team's interest in Darvish this week. Other clubs reputed to be chasing the Japanese All-Star include the aforementioned Cubs, the Minnesota Twins, Texas Rangers, and Houston Astros.
