Pirates' Yacksel Rios: Outrighted off 40-man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was outrighted off the Pirates' 40-man roster Sunday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Rather than invite Rios to summer camp, he will be a part of the taxi squad instead. The 27-year-old righty has a 6.20 ERA in 65.1 career MLB innings.

Pirates' Yacksel Rios: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

Rios was potentially in contention for an Opening Day bullpen spot, but that door appears to be closed for now. With a career 6.20 ERA in 65.1 big-league innings, he's unlikely to fill anything other than a low-leverage role this season.

Pirates' Yacksel Rios: Joins major-league team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.

After coming over from Philadelphia on a waiver claim, Rios went on to make nine appearances out of the Indianapolis bullpen, posting a 2.35 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB over 15.1 innings. He struggled mightily both at Triple-A and in the majors with the Phillies, leading to his DFA, but Rios is only 26 and throws 96 mph on average with his fastball. The Pirates will give him a look down the stretch to see if there's something there.

Pirates' Yacksel Rios: Claimed by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Saturday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Rios has shown very little in 55 career big-league innings, recording a 6.38 ERA, walking 10.5 percent of opposing batters, and striking out a modest 21.4 percent. He's spent most of the season at the Triple-A level, where he's struggled to a 7.41 ERA for Lehigh Valley, and will presumably remain in Triple-A with his new organization.

Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was designated for assignment Monday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Rios has allowed seven runs while recording eight outs for the Phillies this season. He has a career 6.38 ERA in 55 major-league innings. He's not particularly young (26) and has struggled to a 7.41 ERA in 34 innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season, so he's unlikely to be a particularly attractive option on the waiver wire. The move clears a spot for Jason Vargas, acquired in a trade from the Mets on Monday.

Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

Getting optioned is the sort of thing that happens when you allow four runs without recording a single out, as Rios did Monday against the Dodgers. Juan Nicasio (groin) returned from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Endures awful evening
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios allowed four runs on three hits without recording a single out in Monday's blowout loss to the Dodgers.

Rios entered the game with no outs in the top of the eighth and his team down eight runs already. He allowed a pair of doubles and a home run and then was ejected for hitting Justin Turner with a pitch. Rios has allowed seven runs (four earned) while recording just eight outs for the Phillies this season.

Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

The Phillies needed some depth/insurance behind Vince Velasquez, and it was Rios who got the call. This will be his second stint with the major-league team this season. His prior stint last all of a week, with Rios allowing three hits and three walks but zero earned runs in 2.2 innings. He has a 4.75 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 30.1 innings with Lehigh Valley this season.

June 7, 2019 05:24 PM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Rios was called up from Lehigh Valley in late May and gave up three unearned runs on three hits and three walks across 2.2 innings. The 24-year-old had a 4.79 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 23:9 K:BB in 17 appearances at Triple-A prior to his promotion.

May 30, 2019 12:04 PM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Rios will take the roster spot of Adam Morgan (forearm), who was sent to the injured list Wednesday. Prior to earning a promotion, the 25-year-old Rios compiled a 4.79 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 23:9 K:BB in 20.2 innings of relief with Lehigh Valley. Look for the right-hander to fill a middle-relief role during his time with the big club.

March 23, 2019 08:24 PM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Heads to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Rios performed well in spring training with a 0.82 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB across 11 innings, but the Phillies will still opt to go in a different direction with their bullpen to start the season. The 25-year-old appeared in 36 major-league games last season and struggled with a 6.75 ERA and 1.61 WHIP over 36 innings.

September 1, 2018 01:40 PM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Joins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Rios was last in the majors in mid-August and compiled a 5.90 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 29 innings with the Phillies this season. The 25-year-old is likely to remain in a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.

August 22, 2018 12:44 AM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Sent back down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley after Tuesday's game.

Zach Eflin will be recalled to start Wednesday's game, so the Phillies needed to clear a spot for him on the roster. Rios gave up two runs while striking out three over 1.1 innings in this latest brief stint with the big club. He will likely be back up when rosters expand in September.

August 16, 2018 07:40 PM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Called up for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was recalled by the Phillies on Thursday.

The Phillies will swap out arms ahead of Game 2 of their doubleheader against the Mets, calling up Rios and shipping Ranger Suarez back to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Rios has a 4.73 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP over 26 major league appearances this season.

August 2, 2018 03:48 PM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Optioned to Lehigh Valley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was sent down to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

Rios was removed from the 25-man roster in order to make room for Adam Morgan, who was reinstated from paternity leave in a corresponding move. Across 26 appearances for the Phillies this year, Rios has accumulated a 4.73 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.

July 27, 2018 06:08 PM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Adam Morgan was placed on the paternity list, so Rios was summoned as a corresponding move, meaning he may not be up in the majors for long. The 25-year-old righty has a 4.91 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 25.2 innings in the majors this season.

July 24, 2018 05:52 PM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Heads back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

Rios was up as the 26th man for Sunday's doubleheader against the Padres and stuck around for one extra day before being sent down. The 25-year-old could be up again throughout the year, though nothing in his track record suggests he'll be anything more than a long-relief option. Drew Anderson was recalled to take that role.

Phillies' Yacksel Rios: To serve as 26th man Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios will be recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to serve as the 26th man in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader.

Rios owns a 5.01 ERA across 24 games for the Phillies this season but was sent to the minors back on July 8 after not being used for a week. He'll be called up as a low-leverage option for the doubleheader, though it's likely his stay is again short-lived.

July 8, 2018 09:44 AM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies optioned Rios to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Rios hadn't been used out of the bullpen in more than a week and was the odd man out with the Phillies needing to open up a spot on the active roster for the scheduled starter for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Drew Anderson. During his latest stint with the big club, Rios made six appearances and surrendered three earned runs over 6.1 innings.

Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Allows three runs in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios allowed three runs on two hits (including one home run) and a walk Friday against the Nationals, striking out one in 1.2 innings.

Rios was brought in to stem the tide after starter Nick Pivetta allowed seven runs and failed to get out of the second inning. He finished off the second inning and got out of the third cleanly before giving up a three-run bomb to Bryce Harper in the top of the fourth. The righty now has a 5.24 ERA on the season.
