Yarbrough struck out 10 batters while allowing zero runs on three hits with no walks across 6.1 during a no-decision against the Tigers on Saturday.
While he didn't go as deep into the game, Yarbrough was arguably even better in this outing than his last one, extending his scoreless streak to 15 innings. His 10 strikeouts were a season high, and Yarbrough has allowed one earned run in his last 19.2 frames (0.47 ERA). He remains 11-3, but his other numbers improved Saturday -- 3.34 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 88 strikeouts in 105 innings this season. Yarbrough will look to extend his scoreless streak in Baltimore on Thursday.
Yarbrough (11-3) earned the win against Seattle on Sunday, completing 8.2 shutout innings and allowing three hits. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter.
Yarbrough needed only 99 pitches (73 strikes) to deliver 26 outs but was denied his first career complete game and shutout when manager Kevin Cash opted to turn to closer Emilio Pagan to retire the final batter in the 1-0 duel. Pitching as a traditional starter for the first time in four outings, Yarbrough flustered Seattle hitters all afternoon, allowing only a trio of singles and preventing any Mariner from reaching second base. The 27-year-old has now allowed one run or fewer in 13 of his 20 appearances this season and has not been charged with a loss since giving up five runs to the Angels on June 13. He'll carry a 3.56 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 78:13 K:BB over 98.2 innings into his next scheduled start, at home against the Tigers on Saturday.
Yarbrough allowed three runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk over 4.2 innings during Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.
Yarbrough saw two unearned runs cross the plate during the fourth inning as a throwing error allowed both runs to score with two outs. The 27-year-old worked into the seventh inning as the bulk reliever, but he was pulled with two outs after giving up a double and a walk -- both of which were stranded. Yarbrough has a 3.90 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 70:13 K:BB over 90 innings and lines up to work again Sunday at Seattle.
Yarbrough will serve as the primary pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
With Andrew Kittredge set to serve as the opener, Yarbrough will follow as Tampa Bay's bulk reliever in the second game of the series. The southpaw is coming off a win in his last appearance, surrendering four runs over 4.1 innings Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Yarbrough (10-3) picked up the win in Wednesday's 8-5 victory over the Red Sox, allowing four runs on six hits over 4.1 innings of relief while striking out three.
The lefty wasn't really fooling anyone as Tampa's bulk reliever -- he served up as many homers as he generated swinging strikes (two) over 75 pitches -- but an offensive eruption from the Rays was enough to get Yarbrough his fifth straight winning decision despite the fact that he gave up more than one run in an outing for the first time since June 13. He now sports a 4.01 ERA and 65:12 K:BB through 85.1 innings on the year.
Yarbrough will cover the bulk of innings Wednesday against the Red Sox following opener Andrew Kittredge, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Yarbrough was effective in the same role against the Blue Jays last Friday, allowing just one run across 5.1 innings while recording four strikeouts. The southpaw has similar numbers as a starter and reliever this season but has been slightly more effective as the latter, posting a solid 3.64 ERA, .218 BAA and .253 wOBA over 47.0 innings out of the bullpen.
Yarbrough (9-3) allowed one run on four hits with one walk and four strikeouts across 5.1 innings while earning a victory in relief against the Blue Jays on Friday.
Diego Castillo opened the game, but Yarbrough carried the load starting in the second and posted his seventh straight outing with either zero or one run allowed. Yarbrough owns a 1.10 ERA during that stretch, and he's won his last four decisions. Overall, Yarbrough owns a 3.78 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 62 strikeouts in 81 innings this season. With Blake Snell (elbow) on the IL, it wouldn't surprise if Yarbrough is officially back in the Rays rotation soon.
Yarbrough is one of the leading candidates to log starts during the absence of Blake Snell (elbow), Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. The lefty is expected, however, to work as a bulk reliever behind opener Diego Castillo in his next scheduled turn Friday in Toronto, per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.
Yarbrough is naturally well stretched out after filling a variety of roles thus far this season, including spot starter. The 27-year-old southpaw has put together a respectable 3.93 ERA and stellar 0.93 WHIP while posting an 8-3 record across 16 appearances (five starts) at the big-league level in 2019.
Yarbrough tossed six scoreless innings while allowing two hits with no walks and five strikeouts in a no-decision against the White Sox on Saturday.
The Rays didn't score either through six frames, and the White Sox eventually won the game in extra innings. It was disappointing to not see Yarbrough get the win, but he's been pitching well lately. At the end of April, his ERA sat at 8.10, and he's had some rough outings since then, but overall, Yarbrough owns a 2.75 ERA in his last 11 appearances. Since June 18, he has allowed three runs in 27.1 frames (0.99 ERA). Overall, Yarbrough is 8-3 with a 3.93 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 75.2 innings over 16 appearances, including five starts. His next outing is scheduled for Friday in Toronto.
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.
