  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Lands on injured list

    Yajure (hip/back) was placed on the 7-day injured list with Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Yajure exited his previous start Saturday with hip and lower-back discomfort. The injury is apparently serious enough to cost him at least a week, but it's not yet clear how much time he'll miss beyond that.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Dealing with hip/back issues

    Yajure dealt with some hip and lower-back discomfort in his last start at Triple-A Indianapolis, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    He got only two outs in his most recent appearance after striking out five over two scoreless innings May 8. The team doesn't think it's too serious, but they want to get it under control before he pitches again.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Moves down to minors

    The Pirates optioned Yajure to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

    Yajure and Sam Howard will exit the big-league bullpen and head to the minors after the Pirates needed to reduce their active roster from 28 to 26 players ahead of Monday's deadline. The 24-year-old Yajure is still expected to be developed as a starting pitcher in the long run, so he could claim a spot in the Indianapolis rotation once he reports to the affiliate. Yajure struggled to find a foothold in the Pittsburgh bullpen over the first month of the season, posting an 11.32 ERA and 2.13 WHIP across 10.1 innings over six appearances.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Picks up first career win

    Yajure (1-0) did not allow a hit, stuck out one and walked one across two scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday against the Cardinals.

    Yajure did not earn a rotation spot out of spring training, though he effectively relieved Bryse Wilson on Sunday. He entered the game with Pittsburgh up 7-3 and managed to earn the first win of his career. Yajure has typically shown strong control of his pitches while climbing through the majors, so it is notable that he threw only 19 strikes on 34 pitches in his opening outing of the campaign.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Covers two innings in spring debut

    Yajure (back) gave up a run on three hits over two innings Saturday in his Grapefruit League debut against the Red Sox.

    According to Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com, team trainer Todd Tomczyk said Monday that Yajure checked out fine following Saturday's outing, his first of the spring while he was delayed in his recovery from a lumbar spine injury that dates back to last fall. Though Yajure is seemingly back to full health as the start of the season approaches, he doesn't appear to have enough innings under his belt to seriously contend for a spot in the Pirates' Opening Day rotation. The Pirates are still aiming to develop Yajure as a starter, so he could be sent to Triple-A Indianapolis to make regular turns out of the rotation.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Behind due to back issue

    Yajure is behind schedule due to the back issue he started dealing with last fall, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Yajure missed the Arizona Fall League due to back discomfort, and the issue evidently persisted over the winter. He showed up to camp behind in his throwing program, though he's been able to make progress. He threw live batting practice Tuesday and expects to advance to game action soon.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Missing AFL due to back injury

    Yajure will not pitch in the Arizona Fall League due to a lower-back injury, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.

    He's expected to be ready to go for spring training, where he will compete for a spot in the big-league rotation.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Sent down Friday

    Yajure was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

    The right-hander was charged with the loss Thursday when he allowed seven runs in two innings against the Cubs, and he didn't line up to make another start during the regular season. His demotion will make room on the active roster for right-handed reliever Shea Spitzbarth, but Yajure will likely compete for a rotation spot during spring training in 2022.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Surrenders seven earned runs

    Yajure (0-2) allowed seven earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out one across two innings to take the loss Thursday against the Cubs.

    Yajure allowed a home run to the first batter of the game, but the real trouble came in the second inning when when he surrendered five hits and two walks. He pitched the majority of the season with Triple-A Indianapolis, though he has gotten two turns through the major-league rotation to close the season, though he allowed 10 earned runs across just 5.2 frames. Despite a difficult start to his big-league career, Yajure could be a rotation mainstay for the club in 2022.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Starting Thursday

    Yajure will start Thursday's game against the Cubs, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    Yajure last pitched Friday against the Phillies and gave up three runs across 3.2 innings, and he's poised to make his final start of 2021 on Thursday. The right-hander has given up seven earned runs with a 10:5 K:BB over 13 big-league innings this season and will attempt to close out the campaign strong versus Chicago.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Hurt by long ball Friday

    Yajure allowed three runs on five hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 3.2 innings Friday in a no-decision versus Philadelphia.

    Home runs by opposing pitcher Kyle Gibson as well as Brad Miller accounted for two of the three runs against him. Yajure served as a bulk reliever behind opener Sam Howard in Friday's contest, and it's possible that pairing could be utilized again next week against the Cubs. Should it happen, it's a favorable matchup for Yajure as he auditions for a larger role in 2022. He has a 4.85 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 10:5 K:BB in 13 innings across three appearances (two starts) this season.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Promoted Friday

    Yajure was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    The 23-year-old was originally in the mix to start Friday's contest at Philadelphia, but Sam Howard will instead start a bullpen game for Pittsburgh. Yajure could still be utilized as a bulk reliever, though it's not guaranteed he'll fill that role Friday. The right-hander has given up four runs on five hits with a 8:3 K:BB over 9.1 big-league innings this season.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Reinstated from injured list

    Yajure (forearm) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Thursday, Jarrod Prugar of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    Yajure had been on the injured list with a forearm strain since late May, but he recently made two rehab appearances and allowed five runs (three earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out five in four innings. The right-hander is slated to start Thursday's game at Triple-A Indianapolis.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Progresses to sim game

    Pirates general manager Ben Cherington said Yajure (forearm) completed a simulated game Sunday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The 23-year-old right-hander is expected to report to Low-A Bradenton later this week to kick off a rehab assignment, according to Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Another live BP scheduled

    Yajure (forearm) will throw another live batting practice session early next week, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Yajure resumed facing hitters last week, and he's apparently felt good afterward since he'll do so again. The Pirates haven't revealed when the 23-year-old could return to game action, but he's trending in the right direction.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Throws live BP

    Yajure (forearm) recently threw live batting practice, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Yajure resumed mound work in early July, and he's now been able to progress to facing hitters. The right-hander remains on the 60-day injured list due to right elbow soreness, but Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk sounded pleased with Yajure's progress so far.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Resumes mound work

    Yajure (forearm) recently threw off a mound, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Yajure has been sidelined since the start of June due to right forearm soreness, but he recently increased his throwing distance off flat ground and has now been able to resume mound work. Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that the right-hander has made "very nice strides" in his recovery so far. However, Yajure won't be eligible to return from the 60-day IL until the beginning of August.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Set to increase throwing distance

    Yajure (forearm) is expected to increase his throwing distance off flat ground to around 110-to-120 feet by the end of the week, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Yajure's last appearance at Triple-A Indianapolis came back on May 26, and the Pirates are seemingly prepared for him to miss another month of action after he was recently moved to the affiliate's 60-day injured list. The fact that Yajure hasn't been shut down from throwing is at least a positive sign, but he'll have several hurdles to clear in the ramp-up process before he returns to the mound for Indianapolis.

  • Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Resumes throwing

    Yajure (forearm) has resumed throwing, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Yajure's symptoms subsided over the weekend, and it's encouraging to see him begin a throwing program. However, Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomcyk said Wednesday that the team wants to make sure that the right-hander is fully healthy before he returns to game action, so he won't be rushed back. While the team will remain cautious, it's encouraging Yajure hasn't encountered any setbacks in his recovery, and he appears to be trending in the right direction.
