Yarbrough struck out four in five scoreless innings, allowing four hits and a walk in a 2-1 loss Sunday in Seattle. He did not factor into the decision. Yarbrough scattered four singles and pitched efficiently, tallying 68 pitches through five frames. It was his first start and second appearance of the season after beginning the campaign on the injured list due to a groin injury. The start was vastly different from his first outing when he allowed five runs over 2.1 innings. His next appearance will likely be next weekend against Toronto, though it's not yet known if he'll serve as the starter or follow an opener.
Yarbrough will start Sunday's game against the Mariners, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Yarbrough was originally expected to follow J.P. Feyereisen in a bulk reliever role, but he will now serve as a traditional starter. Yarbrough struggled in his opening appearance of the season, surrendering five earned runs on six hits and three walks across 2.1 frames Tuesday against Oakland.
Yarbrough will serve as the bulk reliever Sunday against the Mariners, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. J.P. Feyereisen will open the game and likely cover the first inning or two. Yarbrough will follow him into the contest and should pitch several frames, if effective. Yarbrough made his season debut with the club Tuesday and surrendered five runs on six hits and three walks across 2.1 frames.
Yarbrough got a no-decision during Tuesday's 10-7 win over Oakland, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 2.1 innings. Yarbrough got off to rough start in his 2022 debut by permitting six baserunners and all five runs in the first inning. He didn't get much better thereafter, surrendering two baserunners in the second and third, though none came around to score. He was let off the hook when Tampa Bay tied the game in the ninth and will look to get back on track in his next start, likely to come this weekend against Seattle.
Yarbrough (groin) was activated from the 10-day injured list and is starting Tuesday against the Athletics, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. The left-hander is back from the injured list as expected and will make his season debut after landing on the shelf with a groin injury April 10. Yarbrough was built up to 59 pitches in his final rehab start with Triple-A Durham last week, so he'll likely be limited to around 70-to-80 pitches Tuesday.
