Yacabonis (1-2) took the loss Tuesday against the Padres after surrendering five runs on five hits over 2.2 innings. He struck out two and walked one.
Yacabonis delivered a clean first inning but was touched up for four runs in the second frame. The 27-year-old entered the day with a 4.70 ERA and 1.43 WHIP, but he now has a 5.96 ERA and 1.52 WHIP for the season.
Yacabonis will serve as the opener for Tuesday's game against the Padres, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Yacabonis has served as the opener one other time this season, allowing one hit and striking out one across two innings in that outing. Josh Rogers figures to cover the bulk of innings behind the right-handed Yacabonis, who owns a 4.70 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 16:10 K:BB in 23 innings this season.
Yacabonis allowed one hit and had one strikeout over two innings as the opener in Wednesday's 8-3 loss at Oakland.
Yacabonis did his job as the opener Wednesday, but the pitchers to follow for the Orioles didn't fare nearly as well. The 27-year-old has a 4.91 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 13:10 K:BB over 22 innings this season.
Yacabonis will serve as the opener Wednesday against the Athletics, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Yacabonis will pitch one or two frames before giving way to Josh Rogers, who is expected to cover the majority of innings. In 13 appearances with the big club this season, Yacabonis owns a 5.40 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 12:10 K:BB in 20 innings.
Yacabonis was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
He has a 4.74 ERA at Triple-A and a 6.11 ERA in the majors this season. Look for him to work in low-leverage spots.
The Orioles optioned Yacabonis to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.
Yacabonis will lose his spot on the active roster and in the Baltimore bullpen after Richard Bleier (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list. During his abbreviated stay with the big club, Yacabonis made one appearance, giving up a run on three hits while striking out three over two innings.
Yacabonis was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday.
The Orioles sent Yacabonis down in late April after he was tagged for 11 earned runs over 15.2 innings out of the bullpen, but they decided to bring him back Saturday to take the spot of Evan Phillips, who was sent to Norfolk in a corresponding move.
Yacabonis was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.
Yacabonis was his hit hard early on this season, posting a 6.32 ERA and 1.60 WHIP across 15.2 innings. His last appearance was especially troubling, as he surrendered four earned runs on three homers across two innings Saturday against the Twins.
Yacabonis (1-0) struck out two and allowed one run on three hits and two walks over three innings to earn the victory Saturday against the Yankees.
Yacabonis worked as the first pitcher out of the bullpen behind opener Nate Karns and both hurlers did a good job keeping the Yankees' lineup in check early on. The 27-year-old figures to be used in a multi-inning swingman role once again for the Orioles this season.
Manager Brandon Hyde suggested that Yacabonis would be the first reliever used Saturday against the Yankees after opening pitcher Nate Karns departs, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Hyde is hopeful that Karns can work into the third inning before turning the game over to the bullpen. Though Yacabonis will likely be asked to cover multiple innings as well, he won't necessarily be deployed as a "primary pitcher," with the Orioles instead expected to lean on multiple relievers as part of a bullpen game. John Means and Miguel Castro are other relievers who could be called upon to record more than three outs.
Yacabonis appears to have secured a spot on the Orioles' Opening Day roster, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Baltimore could still do some tinkering with its roster prior to Thursday's opener against the Yankees, but Yacabonis looks in line to fill one of eight bullpen spots for the big club. The right-hander has worked as a swingman over parts of two seasons in the big leagues, so he'll be able to provide length out of the bullpen for the Orioles as needed. Manager Brandon Hyde has already said that the team will use Nate Karns as an opener for Saturday's game, so Yacabonis and fellow long man John Means will likely be tasked with filling some innings in relief that day.
Yacabonis is viewed as a starter by Orioles manager Brandon Hyde but could also be used in long relief, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Yacabonis has started seven games and relieved in 19 so far in his two-year big-league career, but he hasn't had much success in either role. He owns a 4.76 ERA as a starter and a 5.29 ERA out of the bullpen. He doesn't appear to be a favorite for a rotation spot and is unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact in either role.
Yacabonis didn't factor into the decision in Sunday's 4-0 victory over Houston, allowing one hit and two walks while striking out one over four scoreless innings.
Yacabonis lowered his ERA to 5.40 following his seventh start of the season, capping of the 2018 campaign with 12 appearances for the Orioles. Yet again, he wasn't put in a position to pick up his first win since his arm isn't built up enough to last into the middle innings and due to the anemic Orioles' offense, which failed to provide him with any run support until the bottom of the fourth frame.
Yacabonis will start the Orioles' season finale Sunday against the Astros, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Yacabonis has a 6.00 ERA in 11 games (six starts) in 2018 and will get the "honor" of playing out the last bit of string for the 46-115 O's. Boost the outlook for Astros hitters -- at least those not already must-starts.
Yacabonis didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks over 3.1 innings while striking out two in a 10-3 win over the Red Sox.
He needed 82 pitches (46 strikes) to record only 10 outs, and Yacabonis exited the game with the score tied 2-2 before the O's bats really got rolling, denying him his last shot at his first win of the year for Baltimore. He'll wrap up the season with a 6.00 ERA and 32:16 K:BB through 36 big-league innings.
Yacabonis will take the mound for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against Boston, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Yacabonis had his scheduled start Tuesday postponed due to weather. Though he won't be skipped in the rotation, this takes away the chance for Yacabonis to pitch twice this week, as he is no longer lined up for Sunday's season finale versus Houston. Ryan Meisinger will toe the rubber in Game 1 on Wednesday.
Yacabonis won't make his scheduled start against the Red Sox as Tuesday's game was postponed due to weather, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
The game is scheduled to be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday. Yacabonis will likely start one half of the twin bill, though the Orioles have yet to confirm their pitching plans following the schedule change. The right-hander owns a 6.00 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 19:5 K:BB across five starts this season.
Yacabonis will draw another start Tuesday against the Red Sox, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
After serving in a long-relief role following his promotion from Triple-A Norfolk on Sept. 3, Yacabonis was thrust into the rotation last Wednesday against the Blue Jays with Luis Ortiz (hamstring) and Andrew Cashner (knee) both unavailable. It appears that the two injured pitchers have been shut down for the season, so Yacabonis will tentatively line up for two more starts in the final week of the campaign, with his second outing expected to come in the finale Sunday against Houston. Yacabonis blanked Toronto over four innings his last time out and should be cleared to work deeper into Tuesday's start if he's economical with his pitch count.
Yacabonis didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Blue Jays, allowing two hits and a walk over four scoreless innings while striking out four.
The right-hander threw 64 pitches (39 strikes) in an impressive performance, but given that he hasn't completed five innings in any of his 10 appearances for Baltimore this season, Yacabonis wasn't likely to collect his first win of the year no matter how well he pitched. As the O's schedule currently stands, he'll get two more chances to work a little deeper and potentially get into the win column -- Tuesday in Boston, and Sept. 30 for the season finale at home against the Astros.
Yacabonis will start Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Yacabonis will make his first start at the big-league level since late August when he allowed six earned runs in a dreadful performance versus the Yankees. Since being recalled from Triple-A Norfolk earlier this month, he's logged a 4.82 ERA and 1.07 WHIP across three relief appearances.
