Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Lasts seven innings in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (1-4) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out eight over seven innings Sunday as he was charged with the loss against the Orioles.

Yarbrough gave up two runs in the first inning Sunday, but he settled down and finished his outing with six scoreless frames. Unfortunately, the two runs proved to be the difference in the game as the Orioles' pitching staff put forth a dominant showing. The southpaw now has a 3.78 ERA and 40:12 K:BB over 52.1 innings after racking up a season-high eight strikeouts Sunday. Yarbrough should make his final start of the regular season at home Saturday against the Phillies.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Picks up first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (1-3) recorded the win in Tuesday's 6-1 victory over the Nationals, allowing one run on five hits over 5.2 innings. He struck out five.

Entering the game after opener John Curtiss, Yarbrough kept Washington off the scoreboard until the sixth inning, at which point the Rays already had a 6-0 lead. The southpaw tossed 52 of 86 pitches for strikes while nudging his ERA back under 4.00. Yarbrough will look to continue a strong finish to the regular season in his next outing Sunday in Baltimore.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Following opener Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough will serve as the primary pitcher Tuesday against the Nationals, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The left-hander returned from the injured list last week and surrendered four runs over 2.2 innings during his first start back, and he'll follow opener John Curtiss his next time out. Yarbrough regularly worked as a primary pitcher in 2019, but up until now he'd been working exclusively as a traditional starter this season. He has a 4.31 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 27:10 K:BB over 39.2 innings.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Labors in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (0-3) took the loss Tuesday at Washington after giving up four runs on six hits with one walk and one strikeout across 2.2 innings.

The left-hander also hit a pair of batters as he needed 70 pitches to record only eight outs in his return from left groin soreness. Yarbrough has a 4.31 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 27:10 K:BB over 39.2 innings and lines up for another start against the Nationals next Tuesday.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Activated for Tuesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays activated Yarbrough from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Nationals.

Tampa Bay optioned Trevor Richards to its alternate training site to create room on the 28-man active roster and in the rotation for Yarbrough, who was sidelined for the minimum amount of time with the sore left groin. Rays manager Kevin Cash hasn't specified that Yarbrough will face any restrictions in his return to the mound, so the lefty should make for a decent fantasy option Tuesday while facing off against a 15-25 Washington squad that could be without star outfielder Juan Soto (elbow).

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Coming back Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays plan to reinstate Yarbrough (groin) from the 10-day injured list to start Tuesday's game against the Nationals in Washington, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

In a rare bit of good news for the injury-ravaged Tampa Bay pitching staff, Yarbrough will end up missing the minimum amount of time due to the sore left groin that landed him on the IL on Aug. 29. Given the brevity of his absence, Yarbrough should be capable of handling a relatively normal workload when he returns Tuesday for his eighth start of the season. Over his first seven outings of 2020, Yarbrough has submitted a 3.65 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 26:9 K:BB in 37 innings, but he's still sitting on an 0-2 record.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Mid-week return expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (groin) threw a successful bullpen session Friday and could be activated as early as Tuesday, the first day he's eligible to come off the injured list, Juan Toribio of reports. "The bullpen went really, really well," manager Kevin Cash said. "I spoke with [pitching coach Kyle Snyder] during the game. He said [Yarbrough] looked great. I think now it's just a matter of him going through the bullpen and us finding where we're going to slot him back in."

Yarbrough appears to be on the verge on conquering the groin tightness that has sidelined him since Aug. 28. The right-hander could be ready for a return as soon as Tuesday, but if that doesn't come to pass, a Thursday activation to start against the Red Sox after Wednesday's off day seems like the next-likeliest scenario.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Throwing bullpen Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (groin) will throw a bullpen session Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Yarbrough landed on the 10-day injured list with a left groin issue Saturday, and he felt good after playing catch Monday. He'll progress in his throwing program by throwing a bullpen session Friday, after which a better timetable for his return could be established.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (groin) felt good after playing catch Monday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

Yarbrough landed on the 10-day injured list with a tight left groin Saturday, but he believes that he'll only miss one start. He's been a productive pitcher through seven starts this season, posting a 3.65 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Placed on 10-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Yarbrough exited Friday's game with left groin tightness, an issue that manager Kevin Cash said had been bothering him for some time. Cash didn't sound too concerned about the issue after Friday's game, but he'll be sidelined at least 10 days as a result. It's unclear who will take the left-hander's place in the starting rotation.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Exits with left groin tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough exited Friday's game against the Marlins with left groin tightness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Yarbrough was effective in Friday's start prior to the injury as he tossed 6.2 scoreless innings, allowing four hits and no walks while striking out five. The severity of the injury is unclear, and whether he misses any additional time remains to be seen. If he's able to make his next turn through the rotation, he should take the mound on the road Wednesday against the Yankees.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Thursday's start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough's scheduled start Thursday against the Orioles was postponed, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

The teams elected not to take the field Thursday in protest following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. It's unclear when the game will be made up or how the Rays will adjust their starting rotation.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Fans six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six over 6.1 innings in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays. He didn't factor into the decision.

Yarbrough's last start was cut short due to rain, but he matched his longest start of the season Friday by going 6.1 innings. Unfortunately, the four runs he gave up in the second inning forced him to settle for his third straight no-decision. The southpaw was fairly effective outside of the second inning, but he now carries a 4.45 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 30.1 innings across six starts this year. He'll attempt to pick up his first win at home Wednesday against the Orioles.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Start halted by rain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough pitched three scoreless innings against Toronto on Saturday, yielding four hits and striking out two. The game was suspended due to rain.

Yarbrough wasn't spotless in the performance -- he left runners stranded in scoring position in two of his three frames -- but the southpaw managed to escape both jams and finish his three innings up 1-0. Unfortunately, he won't be able to earn a win for his effort as the game was suspended in the bottom of the fourth inning and is slated to be made up Sunday morning. Yarbrough's next turn in the rotation will come Friday at home in a rematch against Toronto.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Shaky in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 8-7 win over the Red Sox, giving up four runs on five hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out one.

The southpaw didn't have his best stuff, getting tagged for three runs in the first inning, but Yarbrough was able to settle down and limit the damage the rest of the way. He threw 49 of 77 pitches for strikes as he failed to complete at least five innings for the first time in four starts. Yarbrough will look to give the Rays a little more length in his next outing, currently scheduled for this weekend in Buffalo against the Blue Jays.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Burned by long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (0-2) allowed five earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Yarbrough had a scoreless outing through 3.2 innings, but surrendered a two-run home run to Alex Verdugo to open the scoring. He completely fell apart in the sixth inning, as he allowed all five batters he faced to reach base, with the big blow being a two-run home run off the bat of Michael Chavis. Despite the poor outing, Yarbrough has maintained a 3.78 ERA across 16.2 innings to begin the season. His next start is currently projected for Monday in a rematch against the Red Sox.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Fans six in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (0-1) was charged with the loss against the Braves on Thursday, allowing two runs on two hits and three walks while striking out six across 6.1 innings.

Despite the loss, it was another solid outing for the 28-year-old. Yarbrough worked his way into a second-inning jam after giving up a single to Marcell Ozuna, hitting Adam Duvall with a pitch, then allowing Dansby Swanson to score Ozuna on an RBI single. He soon surrendered Atlanta's final run of the night on a sacrifice fly to Austin Riley. It was an otherwise effective performance as the southpaw threw 56 of 87 pitches for strikes. Unfortunately, his teammates failed to provide enough run support to get him the win. The biggest surprise for Yarbrough was the three free passes he issued, which were his most walks given up since an Aug. 5, 2018 contest against the White Sox. He'll look to get back in the win column Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Effective in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough pitched 5.1 scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday, yielding four hits and one walk while striking out one.

Yarbrough looked much like the effective pitcher he was from May to August of 2019, limiting Toronto to four harmless singles and issuing only one free pass. He registered just one strikeout, but that's par for the course for the soft-throwing southpaw. Yarbrough was pulled after 69 pitches, preventing him from earning a win or a quality start, so his performance could have been even better from a fantasy perspective. Still, it was refreshing to see the 28-year-old thrive after struggling down the stretch last season, and he should work his way to higher pitcher counts as 2020 progresses. Yarbrough will get a chance to build on his promising start to the campaign when he faces Atlanta on the road Thursday.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Heavy workload in final tuneup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough worked up to 87 pitches during Monday's intrasquad start, his final outing before a scheduled start in the second game of the season versus the Blue Jays, Juan Toribio of reports.

The southpaw corroborated his ability to eat up some innings right from the outset of the season with Monday's effort. Yarbrough did run into some trouble, however, allowing five earned runs across 4.1 innings. That aside, Yarbrough has looked good in previous simulated game opportunities during summer camp and put together a 11-6 record, 4.13 ERA and 1.00 WHIP across 28 appearances (14 starts) in 2019.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Set to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough will start the second game of the season Saturday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Charlie Morton will take the mound Opening Day, and Yarbrough will follow him in the rotation. The 28-year-old started in 14 of his 28 appearances last season in addition to often operating as the primary pitcher behind an opener. Yarbrough had a 4.13 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 117:20 K:BB over 141.2 innings in 2019.
