  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Avoids arbiter

    Chirinos (elbow) signed a one-year, $1.175 million deal with the Rays on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Chirinos will get a raise in his first season of arbitration despite the fact that Tommy John surgery prevented him from pitching at any point last season. He underwent another procedure to address a fractured elbow in September, so he'll miss an extended period again this season.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Placed on 60-day injured list

    Chirinos (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Chirinos would be recovered from Tommy John surgery by now under ordinary circumstances, as he underwent the procedure back in August 2020. Unfortunately, he broke his elbow last September and had to undergo a second surgery. It's unclear when he'll pitch again, but it won't be before early June.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Suffers setback

    Chirinos fractured his elbow in late September while recovering from Tommy John surgery and wound up undergoing a second surgery, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos underwent Tommy John surgery back in August of 2020. The timing meant he was always likely to miss all of 2021, though he would have been ready for the start of next year's spring training if not for the setback. While the fracture didn't damage his surgically-repaired ligament, he now isn't expected to begin throwing again until spring training and won't be ready to begin rehab action until late April at the earliest.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Placed on 60-day injured list

    Chirinos (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The move was an expected one, as Chirinos is set to miss the entire season after undergoing Tommy John surgery back in August. He'll free up a spot on the 40-man roster as the Rays add new signings Collin McHugh and Chaz Roe.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Reaches one-year deal

    Chirinos and the Rays agreed to a one-year, $1.175 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos recorded a 2.38 ERA last season, though that came in a tiny sample of just 11.1 innings. He was shut down with an elbow strain in mid-August and eventually underwent Tommy John surgery. A typical recovery timeline would see him miss the entirety of the 2021 season.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Undergoes successful surgery

    Chirinos (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery Tuesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Chirinos was expected to need Tommy John surgery to repair his elbow, and the procedure went smoothly Tuesday. The right-hander should miss the entirety of the 2021 season, but he could be ready for the start of the 2022 campaign if his recovery goes smoothly.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Shifts to 45-day injured list

    Chirinos (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list in order to make room for Sean Gilmartin on the team's active roster, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    After finding out Chirinos would need Tommy John surgery Friday, the Rays decided to place him on the 45-day injured list. This move is just to open up another active roster spot as Chirinos' season was already confirmed to have been over.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Tommy John surgery confirmed

    Rays manager Kevin Cash confirmed Friday that Chirinos would need Tommy John surgery, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos will almost certainly miss the entirety of the 2021 campaign in addition to the remainder of this season. He should have time to be ready for the start of the 2022 season, at which point he'll be 29 years old. Josh Fleming will be called up to take his place in the rotation.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Expected to need Tommy John surgery

    Chirinos' elbow strain will end his season and is expected to lead to Tommy John surgery, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos battled a triceps injury early in the year and suffered an elbow strain in his first start back from the injured list. Assuming he does indeed need Tommy John surgery, a typical recovery timeline would almost certainly wipe out the entirety of his 2021 campaign, though he should have a good chance to be ready by the beginning of the 2022 season.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Returns to injured list

    Chirinos was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow strain Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday after he was sidelined with right triceps inflammation, but he'll miss at least another 10 days as a result of a right elbow strain. It's unclear when he could be ready to return to the mound. Right-hander Aaron Slegers was recalled by the Rays in a corresponding move.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Gets activated

    The Rays activated Chirinos (triceps) ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tampa Bay didn't need to open up a spot on the active roster for Chirinos, who is being designated as its 29th man after the Rays and Blue Jays resumed Saturday's suspended game earlier. The nightcap will only go seven innings, but that shouldn't impact Chirinos, who didn't reach the sixth inning in either of his two outings before landing on the injured list earlier this month.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Yields two runs in return

    Chirinos allowed two runs on five hits across 2.2 innings Sunday, striking out three in the win over Toronto. He did not factor in the decision.

    In his first start since being activated from the injured list with a tricep injury, Chirinos threw just 50 pitches but was fairly effective. He kept the Blue Jays off the board after allowing a two-run shot to Randal Grichuk with no outs in the first inning. The 26-year-old righty will carry a 2.38 ERA into Friday's home rematch with the Blue Jays.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Slated to return Sunday

    Chirinos (triceps) is expected to come off the 10-day injured list and start Sunday against the Blue Jays, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports.

    Chirinos threw a successful bullpen session Thursday, and he'll be able to return to the mound for the series finale against the Blue Jays. His return will be a timely one with Charlie Morton (shoulder) still sidelined. Chirinos made two starts before his injury, posting a 1.04 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 8.2 innings.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Successful bullpen session

    Manager Kevin Cash said Thursday that Chirinos's (triceps) bullpen session went well, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    This is fantastic news for a Rays team that is also currently without Charlie Morton (shoulder). It's not entirely clear when Chirinos will be activated, but given his successful bullpen session, it would not be surprising to see the right-hander start a game for Tampa Bay within the next week. Chirinos has allowed just one earned run in 8.2 innings pitched over two starts this season.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Makes more progress Tuesday

    Chirinos (triceps) played catch Tuesday and is making very good progress according to manager Kevin Cash, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. "He feels really, really good," Cash said. "I think a lot of that irritation on the triceps has subsided and we're hoping to have him throw a bullpen [session] here in the next couple of days and see how that goes and if we can insert him back in."

    The right-hander clearly won't be back from the injured list when first eligible Thursday, but it appears he's been clear of any setbacks and continues to steadily progress. Getting Chirinos back as soon as possible would be especially valuable for a Rays rotation that's also missing Charlie Morton (shoulder).

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Already feeling better

    Chirinos (triceps) is already feeling much better after landing on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The news doesn't amount to a clear return timeline for the right-hander, but it doesn't sound as though he's set for a long absence. Trevor Richards took his place on the roster, though he'll be pitching in a bullpen role, with the Rays potentially set to go with a bullpen game in Chirinos' spot Saturday.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Sidelined with triceps inflammation

    Chirinos was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with right triceps inflammation, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    It's unclear when Chirinos picked up the injury or how long it will keep him sidelined, though he'll be eligible to return Aug. 13 should he prove ready. Trevor Richards, who was added to the roster in a corresponding move, is a candidate to start in place of Chirinos on Saturday.
