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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

June 17, 2018 09:56 AM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Called back to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was called up to the majors Saturday.

Rios and Jake Thompson will fill low-leverage roles in the Phillies' bullpen, with Luis Garcia (wrist) heading to the disabled list and Mark Leiter heading to the minors. In a previous stint for the Phillies this season, Rios tossed 17 innings with a 5.29 ERA. In 10 innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, he had a 4.50 ERA with 10 walks and 10 strikeouts.

May 19, 2018 09:04 AM
Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Sent down to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following Friday's contest.

Rios allowed three earned runs off four hits while striking out three during an inning of relief against St. Louis on Friday. Over his past five appearances that have lasted a combined 5.1 innings, Rios has allowed six earned runs and will look to right the ship with the IronPigs moving forward. The Phillies will announce a subsequent move prior to Saturday's game.

Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Velocity climbing up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios has seen his velocity climb up over the course of the season, The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Rios' fastball averaged 94.2 mph in April but has risen to 97.1 mph in May, peaking at 99.3 mph. He credits the increase to a change in his delivery that allowed him to generate more power from his legs. The 24-year-old has posted a solid 2.81 ERA through 16 innings this season, though his 21.1 percent strikeout rate and 8.5 percent walk rate are each right around league average. Even with the Phillies' bullpen potentially undergoing a shakeup due to closer Hector Neris' recent struggles, however, Rios would be a very unlikely candidate for future save opportunities, as he's been used in the sixth-highest leverage spots for the Phillies so far this season.

Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Earns second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios earned his second win of the season Sunday in Tampa Bay, throwing 1.1 innings and allowing no runs on two hits, striking out one batter.

Rios was called up on the second day of the season when Pat Neshek (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list. He's earned two wins in his six appearances and has yet to give up a run. The wins have been relatively fluky, though, and he's not in a role that necessarily lends itself to many future wins. Sunday was the first time he'd been asked get more than three outs, with four of his six appearances being shorter than an inning. His solid start has likely earned him another look later in the year, but with Neshek and Tommy Hunter (hamstring) both working their way back from injury, his stay in the majors likely won't last too much longer.

Phillies' Yacksel Rios: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rios was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Pat Neshek (shoulder) was placed on the DL, so the Phillies needed to summon another arm for the big-league bullpen. The 24-year-old Rios posted a 4.41 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 16.1 innings in the majors last year. The righty will operate in a low-leverage role.
