Cubs pitcher Yu Darvish's simulated game was delayed one day because of the weather, so the right-hander will now throw on Wednesday.

Darvish had been scheduled to throw on Tuesday, but the Cubs were playing a makeup day-night doubleheader after Monday's game was postponed because of rain and a problem with the lights at Wrigley Field.


Cubs manager Joe Maddon said they will wait and see how Darvish feels after the session before deciding the next step. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since May 23 because of inflammation in his right triceps.

The Cubs hope Darvish can make a start before the All-Star break, but Maddon stressed that the pitcher will be needed in the second half.

"It's June," Maddon said Tuesday. "I want us to be really, really good in August and September. I want us to be fresh and I want us to be playing as good as we can possibly can play and have everybody available. The last two months to me are gold."
