Top Ryan Yarbrough News

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Working behind opener Friday

    Yarbrough is set to serve as a bulk reliever behind opener Jalen Beeks in Friday's game against the Orioles in Baltimore, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Even though Yarbrough has pitched well in his last two starts -- he allowed one run on six hits and four walks in 8.2 innings between the outings -- the 30-year-old has yet to record his first win of the season. Yarbrough would already have been well positioned to factor into the decision if he operated as a traditional starter against the 14-24 Orioles, but the Rays' choice to deploy him behind an opener should only increase his odds of capturing his first win. Beeks is expected to work no more than 2-to-3 innings before giving way to Yarbrough, who could end up pitching the rest of the game if he's able to retire hitters efficiently.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Five scoreless innings

    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.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Working as traditional starter

    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.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Following opener Sunday

    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.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Struggles in return

    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.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Activated for Tuesday's start

    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.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Rejoining rotation Tuesday

    Rays manager Kevin Cash confirmed Yarbrough (groin) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Tuesday's game in Oakland, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Yarbrough will be making his 2022 debut for the Rays, as he was added to the injured list in the first week of the season when he experienced tightness in his left groin during a pre-start bullpen session. He's since made two rehab starts at Triple-A Durham, covering 2.2 innings and throwing 59 pitches in his most recent outing April 28. Yarbrough will most likely be capped at around 70-to-80 pitches Tuesday, though he could work long enough to qualify for the win against a 10-13 Athletics squad.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Trending toward return

    The Rays are leaning toward having Yarbrough (groin) join the major-league club for his next turn through the rotation, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times

    Yarbrough threw 59 pitches at Triple-A Durham on Thursday and felt good afterward. While the Rays haven't made a firm decision regarding his next steps, it's certainly possible that he returns to the majors for his next start, which tentatively lines up for Tuesday in Oakland. The southpaw likely wouldn't be built up to a full workload if he's ultimately activated early next week, but he appears to be nearly back to full health.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Throws 59 pitches in rehab outing

    Yarbrough (groin) allowed two runs (zero earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out four across 2.2 innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Durham on Thursday.

    Yarbrough threw 59 pitches and looked sharper in his second rehab appearance with Durham. After walking four of the six batters he faced in his first outing, Yarbrough still struggled with his control but was able to work much deeper into the game. It's unclear if this performance will be enough for Yarbrough to be activated from the injured list, or if he'll require an additional rehab appearance.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Needs another rehab start

    Yarbrough (groin) will make a second rehab start for Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Yarbrough made the Opening Day roster but hit the injured list with a groin strain prior to making his season debut. He struggled during his first rehab start Saturday, walking four and allowing two runs (one earned) on one hit while retiring just a single batter. He'll need at least one more outing to demonstrate that he's ready to return before the Rays feel comfortable activating him.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: No control in rehab outing

    Yarbrough (groin) retired only one of the six batters he faced Saturday in his rehab start with Triple-A Durham, allowing two runs (one earned) on one hit and four walks during the 27-pitch appearance.

    Since he was placed on the 10-day injured list April 11 with a left groin injury, Yarbrough was expected to need only one rehab appearance before slotting back into the Tampa Bay rotation. However, after Yarbrough's rough showing for Durham in which he threw only 10 of his 27 pitches for strikes, the Rays will likely want to see him right the ship in the minors before activating him. The Rays will need to break in a fifth starter for their home series with the Twins over the weekend, and it's possible the team opts for a bullpen game that day to allow Yarbrough to iron things out at Triple-A.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Set for rehab outing

    Yarbrough (groin) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham over the weekend, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

    Yarbrough threw a successful bullpen session Tuesday, but he will need some additional work prior to being activated. His outing with Triple-A Durham has not been set for an exact date, though Yarbrough would have the chance to enter the big-league rotation as early as April 27 if the team keeps him on regular rest.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Nearing bullpen session

    Yarbrough (groin) could throw a bullpen session Monday or Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

    Yarbrough will need to spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the injured list due to his groin injury, but it's encouraging that he'll be able to resume mound work soon. The southpaw won't pitch during the Rays' road series against the Cubs, but it's possible he'll be able to rejoin the rotation sometime during the weekend series against the Red Sox in Tampa Bay. Yarbrough's injury isn't regarded as particularly serious, but Cash said the team is exercising caution to prevent against a more significant issue.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Yet to resume mound work

    Yarbrough (groin) threw from 150 feet on flat ground Sunday and has yet to throw off a mound since being placed on the injured list last week, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 30-year-old was expected to miss only one start after landing on the shelf April 11, but that no longer appears to be the case given he has yet to throw off a mound. Yarbrough apparently hasn't suffered a setback, and manager Kevin Cash hopes the lefty can get back on the mound within the next couple days.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Short absence expected

    Yarbrough (groin) isn't expected to miss more than one start during his stay on the injured list, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Yarbrough's season debut was pushed back slightly after he hit the injured list with a groin issue Monday, but both he and the Rays believe he won't miss much time. Ryan Thompson was recalled in a corresponding move, though it's Tommy Romero who's expected to temporarily take his place in the rotation.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Officially moved to IL

    The Rays placed Yarbrough (groin) on the 10-day injured list Monday.

    Tampa Bay recalled reliever Ryan Thompson from Triple-A Durham to serve as a temporarily replacement on the 28-man active roster for Yarbrough, who injured his left groin at some point leading up to his scheduled start for Tuesday against the Athletics. Yarbrough's 2022 debut will thus be put on hold, and his absence from the rotation will likely open up a starting role for prospect Tommy Romero. Tampa Bay added Romero to its taxi squad Monday, but the team may wait until Tuesday before formally adding him to the roster and having him start later that day.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Heading to injured list

    Yarbrough is dealing with a minor groin injury and will be placed on the 10-day injured list as a precautionary measure, John Romano of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The southpaw hadn't yet made his 2022 debut and will have to wait to do so as a result of his injury. Tommy Romero will be recalled from Triple-A Durham to fill in while Yarbrough is sidelined. It's not yet clear whether the 30-year-old Yarbrough will be forced to spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the shelf.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Signs deal before arbitration

    Yarbrough and the Rays avoided arbitration Tuesday, agreeing to terms on a one-year, $3.85 million deal, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports.

    Yarbrough gets a raise of over $1.5 million despite the fact that he's coming off the worst season of his career. In 155 innings, he struck out a career-low 17.9 percent of opposing batters and generated groundballs at a career-low 35.8 percent clip, leading to a career-high 5.11 ERA.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Not included on ALDS roster

    Yarbrough isn't on the Rays' ALDS roster, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Yarbrough will be available in an emergency situation as part of the team's taxi squad, but he was a notable exclusion from the roster following a slow finish to the season. The southpaw posted a 9.00 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 21 innings across his final five starts of the year, and it's not yet clear whether he'll return if the Rays advance to the ALCS.

  • Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Gives up decisive three-run blast

    Yarbrough (9-7) surrendered three runs on four hits and a walk over 4.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against Houston. He also had three strikeouts.

    Pitching behind opener Collin McHugh, Yarbrough served up a three-run homer to Carlos Correa in the fourth inning that gave the Astros a 3-0 lead. It put the finishing touches on a tough September for Yarbrough, who was roughed up for a 9.00 ERA and 29 hits over 21 innings in his five appearances (two starts) during the month.
