Head coach Bob Melvin said, “It’s fantastic. It’s a nice little feather. He has a lot of feathers in his cap, but 100 wins is a cooler number for a pitcher who pitched a lot in Japan. He’s a great pitcher in both the U.S. and Japan. I know he’s not going to stop at 100 wins,” he said, congratulating Darvish on his 100th win.

Only three Asian pitchers have won 100 games in Major League Baseball. Darvish is the third Asian pitcher to reach 100 wins, joining Chan Ho Park (124), who holds the record for most wins by an Asian pitcher, and Hideo Nomo (123), who is considered one of the best pitchers in Japan.
