Chirinos will make his next start Thursday in the series opener against the Yankees, Juan Toribio of reports.

Chirinos would have originally lined up for a Wednesday turn against the Orioles based on his usual amount of rest, but Toribio reports the Rays plan to go with a bullpen day for that contest instead. That will position the right-hander to kick off the four-game set against the Yankees, a team he's been very effective against on three previous occasions this season. Chirinos managed a quality start in his most recent turn versus the Bronx Bombers on June 17, and he owns a solid 3.07 ERA across 14.2 frames versus New York this season overall.
