Yarbrough (8-3) secured the victory after allowing one run on two hits while striking out six over 6.1 innings Sunday against Baltimore.
Yarbrough cruised through the first six innings of his outing before ultimately surrendering a run in the bottom of the ninth inning on a single to right field. The 27-year-old southpaw has been throwing the ball well of late, giving up just three runs over his last five appearances (21.1 innings) while fanning 19.
Yarbrough will be recalled from Triple-A Durham prior to Sunday's game in Baltimore and likely will work as the bulk reliever, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Ryne Stanek will serve as the opener Sunday with Yarbrough likely to follow as the primary pitcher. The 27-year-old had a 5.59 ERA through his first 10 outings of the season, but in his last four appearances he's given up only two runs and has a 13:2 K:BB in 15 innings.
Yarbrough is expected to be promoted from Triple-A Durham for either Sunday's game against the Orioles or Tuesday's contest versus the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The southpaw has put in time with both the Bulls and the Rays this season, and he's made 14 appearances (four starts) overall at the big-league level. Yarbrough was just sent back down to the farm July 2, but the Rays will apparently bring him back into the fold just a handful of days into the second half of the season. The 27-year-old has helped fill in as both a primary pitcher and traditional starter this season, and it remains to be seen in what capacity he'd be deployed in his first post-All-Star-break appearance.
Yarbrough was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Yarbrough's 4.55 season ERA is nothing special, but he's allowed just two runs in 15 innings over his last four appearances, so the timing of the move is odd. He's expected to make a start at Durham before returning to the Rays following the All-Star break, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Austin Pruitt was recalled in a corresponding move.
Yarbrough pitched three innings, giving up one run on four hits with three strikeouts and two walks in a no-decision against the Orioles on Monday.
Yarbrough entered the game after Ryne Stanek pitched two scoreless innings as an opener. The left-hander has been on an impressive run lately with a 24:3 K:BB in his last 28.2 innings. Although it's unclear if Yarbrough will be the starter or follow an opener, he is expected to pitch Sunday against the Yankees at Tropicana Field.
Yarbrough is expected to serve as the Rays' bulk reliever for Monday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Yarbrough missed out on his normally scheduled outing as a starter/bulk reliever during the past week after he was needed late in Thursday's 18-inning game against the Twins. Fortunately for fantasy managers that included him in weekly lineups, Yarbrough was able to scoop up the win while striking out five in three scoreless frames. He'll be able to work deeper into Monday's outing and projects to be the Rays pitcher most likely to factor into any decision.
Yarbrough (7-3) allowed two hits and no walks while striking out five across three scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Twins.
Yarbrough got unexpected work after the contest turned into an 18-inning marathon. That didn't affect his performance, however, as he managed to work the final three innings without surrendering an extra-base hit. While the win and solid peripherals were nice for those that included him in weekly lineups, Yarbrough's usage in the extra-inning affair muddles his availability for his next turn as a starter or primary pitcher.
Yarbrough (6-3) yielded one run on five hits over six innings Sunday, striking out four and earning the win over Oakland.
Opener Ryne Stanek kept Oakland off the board but walked Mark Canha to open the second inning before Yarbrough stepped in. His season ERA fell to 4.87 as he still looks to get some consistency working as a long reliever after the Rays' opener. The 27-year-old should see the mound again at home against the Rangers on Saturday.
Yarbrough is expected to serve as the bulk reliever behind opener Ryne Stanek at Oakland on Sunday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Yarbrough will follow Stanek for the second straight outing and will look to replicate the three scoreless innings he delivered Tuesday. The 27-year-old has a 5.26 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 36:9 K:BB through 51.1 frames in what has been an up-and-down season thus far.
Yarbrough pitched three innings, giving up no runs on one hit with two strikeouts and no walks during a no-decision against the Yankees on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old entered as planned after Ryne Stanek recorded the first four outs. Yarbrough departed with nobody on base and one out in the fifth, but the Rays' next reliever immediately found trouble and allowed three runs in the frame. Yarbough didn't factor into the decision, but owners have to like his near-perfect three innings after a couple subpar starts during his last three outings. He is 5-3 with a 5.26 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 36 strikeouts across 5.1 innings during 11 appearances, four of which have been starts. Although it's unclear whether he will start again or be deployed as a longer reliever after an opener, Yarbough's next turn in the rotation will be Sunday in Oakland.
Yarbrough will be deployed as a bulk reliever in Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Since rejoining the Rays in late May to fill Tyler Glasnow's (forearm) spot in the rotation, Yarbrough has made four of his five appearances as a traditional starter. After Yarbrough was roughed up in two of his past three outings, however, manager Kevin Cash will deploy the lefty behind an opener with the hope that the arrangement yields better results. Ryne Stanek will get the "start" and is expected to cover 1-to-2 innings before giving way to Yarbrough, who is the most likely Rays pitcher to factor into any decision.
Yarbrough (5-3) allowed five runs on five hits and one walk across six innings while taking the loss Thursday against the Angels. He struck out four.
Yarbrough allowed just five hits in his outing but all five went for extra bases, including a three-run home run from Shohei Ohtani and a two-run shot from Albert Pujols. He pitched quite well other than that, needing an economical 90 pitches to complete six frames. Yarbrough's form has been erratic lately; he's allowed five or more earned runs three times in the last six starts while yielding two or fewer in the other three. He'll look to bounce back next week on the road against the Yankees, though he could work with an opener in that contest.
Yarbrough (5-2) allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and no walks over 7.2 innings to earn the win over the Red Sox in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday. He struck out seven.
Yarbrough was outstanding, winning his third decision in his last four appearances. The left-hander permitted only an eighth-inning Jackie Bradley Jr. solo homer and three singles and has a 16:4 K:BB in his last four games (25.2 innings). The 27-year-old still has a lackluster 5.31 ERA but a solid 1.09 WHIP. His next start is Thursday at home against the Angels.
Yarbrough (4-2) allowed seven earned runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out four across seven innings to take the loss Sunday against the Twins.
Yarbrough was hit hard throughout the middle of his start, with all of his earned runs coming in the third, fourth, and fifth innings. He didn't allow a home run but gave up a bases-clearing double by C.J. Cron that accounted for three of his seven charged runs. Yarbrough has been deployed as both a traditional starter and bulk reliever this season, though to this point he's been unable to replicate his success from the 2018 season. It remains to be seen how he's used in the coming week, but he appears likely to pitch at some point in the team's weekend series at Boston.
Yarbrough will start Sunday against the Twins, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Yarbrough has appeared once as a starter and six times as a reliever this season. He lasted 7.1 innings in his lone start and will be on a full four days' rest Sunday, so he'll likely be allowed to go deep in the game if he pitches well.
Yarbrough (4-1) fired 3.2 scoreless innings as the bulk reliever in a win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday, issuing a walk and recording a strikeout.
The southpaw was efficient while bouncing back from a trio of rough outings. Yarbrough had allowed a combined 12 earned runs across his previous three appearances, but he settled in over 53 pitches versus the Blue Jays and finished with his second scoreless effort of the season. Yarbrough's role as frequent bulk reliever and occasional spot starter should continue affording him a fair share of opportunities to be involved in the decision, keeping him viable in a number of different fantasy formats.
Yarbrough will serve as the primary pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Yarbrough tossed 7.1 strong frames in his last outing against the Indians, surrendering just two runs on four hits and a walk while fanning four. Though he's not starting Tuesday, he'll still have a chance to work deep enough into the game to qualify for a win.
Yarbrough (3-1) picked up the win Thursday by limiting the Indians to two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four through 7.1 innings of work.
Yarbrough looked sharp in first start of the season after getting called up from Triple-A Durham, tossing a career-high 7.1 frames in the 7-2 victory. The left-hander scattered four hits with one walk and four strikeouts. In six appearances for the Rays this year, Yarbrough holds a 6.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB, though he posted a solid 2.14 ERA through 21 innings in Durham. He'll likely take the mound again Tuesday for a home matchup against the Blue Jays.
Yarbrough was recalled from Triple-A Durham and will start Thursday's game against the Indians, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Yarbrough was expected to come up to pitch in this game, but he was expected to be used behind an opener, which will not be the case. Yarbrough logged a 2.14 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 30:3 K:BB in 21 innings across four starts since being demoted to Triple-A. The Rays will likely look to limit him to two times through the order, but he threw six innings (80 pitches) in his last start for the Bulls, so he might go deep enough to qualify for the win. It is unclear whether Yarbrough will remain in the rotation without an opener going forward.
The Rays are expected to call up Yarbrough from Triple-A Durham and use him as a bulk reliever for Thursday's game against the Indians, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Heading into the week, the Rays didn't require a fifth starter/primary pitcher until Saturday, but the team decided to push Blake Snell and Charlie Morton back a day for rest purposes. That creates a need for an extra long-relief arm in the series opener in Cleveland, with Yarbrough representing the most obvious candidate to fill the void. Though he struggled in his most recent appearance with the big club back on April 24, Yarbrough has found success over his four outings with Durham, posting a 2.14 ERA and 30:3 K:BB in 21 innings.
