Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Fans five in long relief
Chirinos struck out five and allowed three runs on seven hits and one run across 5.1 innings Saturday against the A's.
Chirinos followed opener Ryne Stanek, who pitched a scoreless first inning, and held his own, allowing just one extra-base hit -- a Matt Olson solo homer in the sixth inning. The 24-year-old righty has now made three appearances in September (all in relief), posting a respectable 3.38 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with 16 strikeouts across 18.2 innings in those outings. Chirinos will likely continue to work in a long-relief role down the stretch, though he could step into the rotation for a spot start should an opportunity arise.
