Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery Tuesday, Juan Toribio of reports.

Chirinos was expected to need Tommy John surgery to repair his elbow, and the procedure went smoothly Tuesday. The right-hander should miss the entirety of the 2021 season, but he could be ready for the start of the 2022 campaign if his recovery goes smoothly.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Shifts to 45-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list in order to make room for Sean Gilmartin on the team's active roster, Juan Toribio of reports.

After finding out Chirinos would need Tommy John surgery Friday, the Rays decided to place him on the 45-day injured list. This move is just to open up another active roster spot as Chirinos' season was already confirmed to have been over.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Tommy John surgery confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rays manager Kevin Cash confirmed Friday that Chirinos would need Tommy John surgery, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Chirinos will almost certainly miss the entirety of the 2021 campaign in addition to the remainder of this season. He should have time to be ready for the start of the 2022 season, at which point he'll be 29 years old. Josh Fleming will be called up to take his place in the rotation.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Expected to need Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos' elbow strain will end his season and is expected to lead to Tommy John surgery, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Chirinos battled a triceps injury early in the year and suffered an elbow strain in his first start back from the injured list. Assuming he does indeed need Tommy John surgery, a typical recovery timeline would almost certainly wipe out the entirety of his 2021 campaign, though he should have a good chance to be ready by the beginning of the 2022 season.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Returns to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow strain Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Chirinos was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday after he was sidelined with right triceps inflammation, but he'll miss at least another 10 days as a result of a right elbow strain. It's unclear when he could be ready to return to the mound. Right-hander Aaron Slegers was recalled by the Rays in a corresponding move.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Yields two runs in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos allowed two runs on five hits across 2.2 innings Sunday, striking out three in the win over Toronto. He did not factor in the decision.

In his first start since being activated from the injured list with a tricep injury, Chirinos threw just 50 pitches but was fairly effective. He kept the Blue Jays off the board after allowing a two-run shot to Randal Grichuk with no outs in the first inning. The 26-year-old righty will carry a 2.38 ERA into Friday's home rematch with the Blue Jays.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Gets activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays activated Chirinos (triceps) ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Tampa Bay didn't need to open up a spot on the active roster for Chirinos, who is being designated as its 29th man after the Rays and Blue Jays resumed Saturday's suspended game earlier. The nightcap will only go seven innings, but that shouldn't impact Chirinos, who didn't reach the sixth inning in either of his two outings before landing on the injured list earlier this month.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Slated to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos (triceps) is expected to come off the 10-day injured list and start Sunday against the Blue Jays, Bill Ladson of reports.

Chirinos threw a successful bullpen session Thursday, and he'll be able to return to the mound for the series finale against the Blue Jays. His return will be a timely one with Charlie Morton (shoulder) still sidelined. Chirinos made two starts before his injury, posting a 1.04 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 8.2 innings.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Successful bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Kevin Cash said Thursday that Chirinos's (triceps) bullpen session went well, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

This is fantastic news for a Rays team that is also currently without Charlie Morton (shoulder). It's not entirely clear when Chirinos will be activated, but given his successful bullpen session, it would not be surprising to see the right-hander start a game for Tampa Bay within the next week. Chirinos has allowed just one earned run in 8.2 innings pitched over two starts this season.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Makes more progress Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos (triceps) played catch Tuesday and is making very good progress according to manager Kevin Cash, Juan Toribio of reports. "He feels really, really good," Cash said. "I think a lot of that irritation on the triceps has subsided and we're hoping to have him throw a bullpen [session] here in the next couple of days and see how that goes and if we can insert him back in."

The right-hander clearly won't be back from the injured list when first eligible Thursday, but it appears he's been clear of any setbacks and continues to steadily progress. Getting Chirinos back as soon as possible would be especially valuable for a Rays rotation that's also missing Charlie Morton (shoulder).

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Already feeling better
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos (triceps) is already feeling much better after landing on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The news doesn't amount to a clear return timeline for the right-hander, but it doesn't sound as though he's set for a long absence. Trevor Richards took his place on the roster, though he'll be pitching in a bullpen role, with the Rays potentially set to go with a bullpen game in Chirinos' spot Saturday.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Sidelined with triceps inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with right triceps inflammation, Juan Toribio of reports.

It's unclear when Chirinos picked up the injury or how long it will keep him sidelined, though he'll be eligible to return Aug. 13 should he prove ready. Trevor Richards, who was added to the roster in a corresponding move, is a candidate to start in place of Chirinos on Saturday.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Gives up one run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out three over 4.2 innings in Sunday's loss to the Orioles. He didn't factor into the decision.

Chirinos slightly increased his pitch count in his second start of the season as he fired 72 pitches, but he had to settle for another no-decision against the Orioles. His next chance to get into the win column should come at home Saturday against the Yankees.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Allows one unearned run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos gave up one unearned run on four hits and two walks over four innings during Tuesday's win over the Braves. He had four strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

The 25-year-old threw 62 pitches in his final simulated game of camp, so it wasn't a surprise to see him slightly increase his workload to 68 pitches Tuesday. Manager Kevin Cash has made a point of being extra cautious with his starters to begin the season, but Chirinos should be able to push toward 80 pitches his next time out, which is scheduled for Sunday in Baltimore.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: On pitch count in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos will start Tuesday against the Braves but won't be asked to pitch deep into the game, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Manager Kevin Cash said that expectations for the length of Chirinos' start were similar to those for Tyler Glasnow ahead of his start Monday, in which he threw 72 pitches over four innings. Chirinos threw 62 pitches in a simulated game Thursday after missing most of camp due to a positive COVID-19 test, so he should have no problem throwing roughly 75 pitches in this outing.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Catching up quickly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiirinos, who did not report to summer camp until Sunday due to a positive COVID-19 test, impressed while working up to 62 pitches in a simulated game Thursday, Juan Toribio of reports. "We were all really encouraged by Yonny," manager Kevin Cash said. "It was very much of a work day for him. He wasn't up there with the intent to strike everybody out -- it was basically with the intent to command his pitches. The stuff and the readings that we got in those four innings was really, really positive."

The right-hander faced the trio of Kevin Kiermaier, Mike Brosseau and Jose Martinez and was able to get 42 of his offerings into the strike zone. Chirinos is slated to serve primarily as a traditional starter this season after often working as a bulk reliever following an opener in the last two campaigns, and he remains on track to take the hill for the first time in 2020 against Atlanta on Tuesday.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Scheduled to face hitters Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos is slated to throw live batting practice Thursday for the first time since arriving in summer camp, Juan Toribio of reports.

Manager Kevin Cash went on record earlier in the week regarding Chirinos' expected readiness for the start of the season despite the pitcher's delayed arrival in summer camp. Thursday will be another step toward validating Cash's statement, as it will give the Rays skipper a more concrete idea of what type of workload the right-hander may be capable of tolerating in his first couple of appearances, be those conventional starts or "piggyback" assignments in tandem with Trevor Richards.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Will be ready for start of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos (illness) will be ready for the start of the season, Juan Toribio of reports.

He tested positive for COVID-19 in late June, but manager Kevin Cash said Chirinos was able to get his work in while he was quarantining. The Rays' rotation order has not been officially set after Opening Day starter Charlie Morton and second starter Ryan Yarbrough, but Chirinos seems likely to take the ball in the second series at home against the Braves in what could be a two-start week. Tampa Bay has quality depth in multi-inning guys like Trevor Richards and Jalen Beeks, so it is not a lock that Chirinos will be asked to go five-plus innings in his first start of the season.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Had mild coronavirus symptoms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos, who arrived at Rays camp Sunday, says he tested positive for COVID-19 in late June and had mild symptoms, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

He is feeling much better now and thinks he can be ready for Opening Day. However, it is unclear what type of role he will be ready for, or whether the Rays would prefer to stretch him out at the alternate site. Trevor Richards is the top option to slot into the rotation if Chirinos is not ready.

Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Spotted in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos (undisclosed) was spotted on the field Sunday for the first time since the start of summer camp, Juan Toribio of reports.

He had been away for the first couple weeks of summer camp. It is unclear how built-up Chirinos is from a workload standpoint. He should eventually slot into the Rays' rotation, but he may not be ready for what would have been his first couple turns. Trevor Richards is stretched out enough to handle five innings, if needed.
