, Ind. (AP) — Chicago Cubs right-hander Yu Darvish lasted just one inning in his rehab start with Class A South Bend on Sunday, casting doubt on his availability for the rest of the year.Darvish, who has been sidelined by triceps and elbow injuries, shook his arm as he left the field after striking out Great Lakes’ Romer Cuadrado with a 95-mph fastball for the last out of the first. But he said the first inning was great.“I felt real good,” Darvish said through an interpreter. “I didn’t feel any abnormalities in that sense.”When Darvish warmed up for the second, he threw six pitches and winced on each one. Miguel Amaya, who caught Darvish’s rehab start for South Bend on June 25, walked to the mound and summoned manager Jimmy Gonzalez and a trainer. After a short discussion, Darvish walked to the dugout.“During warmups the next inning Matt Andriese Jersey
, I felt something in there,” Darvish said. “Last time (in June) I did feel the same thing (but) I continued to throw. This time I stopped.”Darvish, who turned 32 on Thursday, signed a $126 million, six-year contract with Chicago in February. But he has made just eight starts in his first year with the Cubs, going 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA.Darvish said he would ask for an MRI when he got back to Chicago. He wasn’t sure if would miss the rest of the year.“I can’t really tell right now,” Darvish said. “It depends how I feel tomorrow. I really want to come back this season. I am going to work hard and do my best to try and come back.”The Cubs are on top of the NL with a 71-52 record, but their rotation is looking a little thin.

, three-year contract over the winter.The Cubs were optimistic about a possible return for Darvish after he threw about 55 pitches in a simulated game on Tuesday. But that optimism was likely wiped out by Sunday’s rehab appearance.Darvish allowed a first-pitch single and issued a walk, then retired three in a row. He totaled 19 pitches, 10 for strikes.In his June rehab start for South Bend, Darvish allowed one run and three hits in five innings. His fastball reached 94 mph, but he complained afterward that his arm got tired as the outing went on. Scott Taetsch/Getty ImagesThe Miami Marlins are receiving interest in veteran outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Cleveland Indians, New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners, Fancred's Jon Heyman reported Monday.Maybin is batting .249 with three home runs, 20 RBI and eight stolen bases in 98 games this season.The 31-year-old's trade value has surged recently based on his hot July. He's batting .303 with a .439 slugging percentage this month.The fact Maybin is on anybody's radar speaks somewhat to the dearth of proven outfield options on the market. ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick also outlined the issues regarding the best names available:Jerry Crasnick jcrasnickThe #Indians want to upgrade in CF, but its a thin market. Adam Jones is most likely staying put. Leonys Martin is out there Jesus Sucre Jersey
, but hes had hamstring issues and struggles vs. lefties. Billy Hamilton is hitting .227, and the #Reds never seem interested in discussing him anyway.Even if his offense regresses to pre-July levels, Maybin's defense would make him a worthwhile addition for a playoff contender. Among outfielders who logged at least 500 innings, he's tied for 15th in ultimate zone rating (4.7) and tied for 13th in defensive runs saved (eight), per FanGraphs.The MLB non-waiver trade deadline passes at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, so the Marlins don't have much time to make a final decision on Maybin, who becomes a free agent in the offseason.
