Yu Darvish will not be pulling on a Twins jersey this upcoming MLB season.

The pitching ace has agreed a 6-year deal with the Chicago Cubs, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

He's expected to pen a 6-year, $126 million deal which could rise to $150 million with incentives.

The Twins were one of the teams in for Darvish to add to their starting rotation, but were always likely to be outbid by the Cubs or the Yankees.
