  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Inks one-year deal

    Chirinos signed a one-year, $1.275 million contract with Tampa Bay on Friday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Chirinos only made two appearances for the Rays last season, throwing seven scoreless innings and recording a 1.14 WHIP. While that's certainly a good sign, it's still hard to tell how well he's bounced back from Tommy John surgery in August 2020, so there's a good chance he begins the year in Triple-A until the organization can get a better feel for where he is in the recovery process.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Demoted after spot start

    Chirinos was optioned to Triple-A Durham after he pitched four scoreless innings and took a no-decision in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays. He allowed three hits and had two strikeouts and zero walks.

    The 29-year-old was called up at the 29th man for Tuesday's twin bill, so it's no surprise he's headed back to Triple-A after the spot start. Chirinos has made only two appearances for Tampa Bay this year, but he's pitched well with a 6:1 K:BB across seven scoreless frames.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Starting nightcap against Jays

    Chirinos will start Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Considering Chirinos has not thrown more than three innings in a game this season, including in the minors, he is unlikely to go deep enough to qualify for the win opposite Alek Manoah. Josh Fleming is a strong candidate to piggyback Chirinos.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Likely starting Game 2 Tuesday

    Chirinos was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday and will likely start the second game of the doubleheader in Toronto, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    He is up as the 29th man, so Chirinos will likely either start or work as the primary pitcher in Game 2 and then be bumped off the active roster. Chirinos tossed three scoreless innings while striking out four and allowing five baserunners in three innings last week against the Red Sox in his lone MLB appearance of the season.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Sent down Friday

    Chirinos was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos began the season on the injured list while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he made his season debut Wednesday against Boston. He struck out four in three scoreless relief innings to earn the win, but he'll ultimately be sent down after Drew Rasmussen was reinstated from the paternity list. However, Chirinos will remain with the team on the taxi squad and should be a candidate to start next week as part of a doubleheader Tuesday.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Activated from injured list

    Chirinos (elbow) was activated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    It's been a long road back for Chirinos, who underwent Tommy John surgery in August 2020. He's finally ready to resume pitching for the big club after recently wrapping up a nine-outing rehab assignment with three of the Rays' affiliates. It's not exactly clear what role he will work in the rest of the way, but Chirinos could be deployed as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen behind opener JT Chargois in Tuesday's game against the Red Sox. Chirinos will be available on four days' rest and built up to three innings in his most recent rehab start for Triple-A Durham.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Shifting rehab to Triple-A

    Chirinos (elbow) had his rehab assignment transferred to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos has spent the last month on a rehab assignment, posting a 6.97 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 10.1 innings over six outings between the rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate and Single-A Charleston. He lasted three innings during his most recent appearance, and his shift to Durham will likely be the final step in his rehab process.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Moving rehab to Single-A

    Chirinos (elbow) is scheduled to make a rehab appearance Tuesday for Single-A Charleston.

    He had his rehab assignment transferred over from the Rays' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate, with whom he recently made three appearances and struck out three over four scoreless innings. He's working his way back from the surgery he underwent last fall on his fractured right elbow, a procedure that was proceeded by August 2020 Tommy John surgery. Chirinos will likely need the full 30-day rehab window to get stretched out before the Rays activate him from the 60-day injured list.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Preparing for rehab outing

    Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said that Chirinos (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment Saturday with the Rays' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The upcoming appearance will mark Chirinos' first at any level since Aug. 16, 2020, as he's spent the better part of two years rehabbing from Tommy John surgery and another procedure to address a fracture of the same elbow. Chirinos had served as a starter for the Rays during the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign, but he could be preparing for a multi-inning relief role with the big club while he's out on the rehab assignment.

  • 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.
