"The World Series resulted in a disappointment due to my lack of performance, but I will carry this experience to the future," Darvish posted in a statement.

Darvish pitched in two World Series games, giving up nine runs - eight of which were earned - in 3 1/3 innings. However, many on social media have pointed out the Dodgers also left 10 runners on base and 1-13 with runners in scoring position in Game 7.

Darvish is scheduled to enter free agency next season.
