Yu Darvish is one of the most active Cubs on Twitter. He frequently updates his fans on his budding YouTube channel, his training and pitching outings. He's been outspoken on his concerns over COVID-19.
Darvish obviously stayed in touch with the Cubs during baseball's shutdown, but pitching coach Tommy Hottovy joked Sunday how the club could have kept up with the right-hander by checking his Twitter timeline alone.
“You can communicate with Darvish and get good updates but if you follow him on Twitter, it’s just as good," Hottovy said, laughing. "Just getting his updates on new pitches he’s coming up with and the new "Supreme" that he [added]."

Last month, Darvish posted a video debuting his latest pitch, "The Supreme," a two-seam/splitter hybrid. If you count the various versions of his pitches, he has upwards of 11-12 available in his arsenal.
If you're looking for a Cub to keep an eye on on Twitter, Hottovy's endorsement (joke or not) shows Darvish is a great choice.
