Yu Darvish to Minor Leaguers, I'm Rich, Here's Steak!!

Yu Darvish — who’s in a $126 MILLION contract — completed his first minor league rehab start this week … and celebrated by spoiling BOTH TEAMS with a very expensive Ruth’s Chris Steak dinner. 

The Chicago Cubs had sent the pitcher down to the Class A affiliate South Bend Cubs to help him work his way back from a triceps injury … and Monday night, he took the mound with a bunch of guys who make WAY less cash.

In fact, most of the players only make around $45k per year (and that’s if they’re playing consistently for the entire year).  

So, Yu — being the generous rich dude that he is — pulled out the checkbook and bought a massive spread of steak, salmon, sides and some bomb ass cookies for his team and the opposing West Michigan Whitecaps. 

Total bill for it all had to be pricey … a steak from the fancy spot runs about $50 a pop, while the fish costs about $30 apiece.

As for the minor leaguers … Whitecaps reliever Max Green took to Twitter to thank Yu for the meal afterward.

What a guy!

By the way, Yu took the L during the game but he threw pretty well — racking up 5 Ks and only 3 hits in 5 innings.
