Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Another live BP scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure (forearm) will throw another live batting practice session early next week, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Yajure resumed facing hitters last week, and he's apparently felt good afterward since he'll do so again. The Pirates haven't revealed when the 23-year-old could return to game action, but he's trending in the right direction.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Throws live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure (forearm) recently threw live batting practice, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Yajure resumed mound work in early July, and he's now been able to progress to facing hitters. The right-hander remains on the 60-day injured list due to right elbow soreness, but Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk sounded pleased with Yajure's progress so far.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Resumes mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure (forearm) recently threw off a mound, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Yajure has been sidelined since the start of June due to right forearm soreness, but he recently increased his throwing distance off flat ground and has now been able to resume mound work. Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that the right-hander has made "very nice strides" in his recovery so far. However, Yajure won't be eligible to return from the 60-day IL until the beginning of August.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Set to increase throwing distance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure (forearm) is expected to increase his throwing distance off flat ground to around 110-to-120 feet by the end of the week, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Yajure's last appearance at Triple-A Indianapolis came back on May 26, and the Pirates are seemingly prepared for him to miss another month of action after he was recently moved to the affiliate's 60-day injured list. The fact that Yajure hasn't been shut down from throwing is at least a positive sign, but he'll have several hurdles to clear in the ramp-up process before he returns to the mound for Indianapolis.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Moves to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Yajure's symptoms recently subsided, and he was able to resume a throwing program. However, the Pirates have been insistent that they want the right-hander to be fully healed before he returns to game action. It's not yet clear whether Yajure suffered a setback that prompted Thursday's move, but he'll be on the injured list until at least early August following his shift to the 60-day IL

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure (forearm) has resumed throwing, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Yajure's symptoms subsided over the weekend, and it's encouraging to see him begin a throwing program. However, Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomcyk said Wednesday that the team wants to make sure that the right-hander is fully healthy before he returns to game action, so he won't be rushed back. While the team will remain cautious, it's encouraging Yajure hasn't encountered any setbacks in his recovery, and he appears to be trending in the right direction.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Nearing throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure (forearm) is no longer experiencing symptoms and is expected to resume a throwing program soon, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Yajure has been on the 7-day minor-league injured list since the start of June, but he's felt better recently. The right-hander will need to build back up during his upcoming throwing program, but he appears to be trending in the right direction.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Showing improvement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates general manager Ben Cherington said Sunday that Yajure (elbow/forearm) "is feeling better" and will be re-evaluated in the next few days before the organization determines his next steps, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Yajure was recently moved to the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Indianapolis after he experienced right forearm tightness coming out of his last start for the affiliate May 26. The young right-hander's symptoms have apparently improved in recent days, and he could gradually begin to ramp up again soon if the Pirates' medical team is satisfied with his progress. He could rejoin the Indianapolis rotation at some point before the end of June.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure (elbow) was placed on the 7-day minor-league injured list Wednesday, retroactive to June 1, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Yajure has been dealing with right elbow soreness recently, and he'll be sidelined for at least a week. The Pirates are hopeful that the right-hander will only miss one start, but it's not yet clear whether he'll spend more than the minimum amount of time on the injured list.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Dealing with elbow soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure will not make his next start at Triple-A Indianapolis due to soreness in his right elbow and forearm, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Yajure has made a pair of spot starts for the Pirates this season, allowing four earned runs while striking out eight across 9.1 innings. He was optioned back to Indianapolis following his latest major-league start May 14, and Yajure is now dealing with discomfort in his elbow/forearm area. The Pirates are hoping that skipping one start will put an end to the issue, but there certainly remains the possibility that the 23-year-old will have to be sidelined for a longer period.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

Yajure's demotion doesn't seem to be performance-related, as he threw five scoreless innings against the Giants on Friday, allowing just a single hit. The Pirates evidently don't have any opportunities for him at the moment, but he's seemingly pitched well enough to earn another start soon. Kyle Keller was recalled in a corresponding move.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Tosses five shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure threw five scoreless innings against the Giants on Friday, allowing just one hit and a walk while striking out four. He was not involved in the decision.

Yajure was solid in just the second start of his young major-league career. The 23-year-old was involved in a classic pitcher's duel against Kevin Gausman and allowed just one hit, ironically coming off the bat of Gausman himself. The right-hander now owns a 3.86 ERA and 0.86 WHIP across 9.1 innings, but Yajure projects for a tough test in his next scheduled start in a road matchup against Atlanta's powerful offense.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Called up to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure was recalled by the Pirates to start Friday's game against the Giants.

Yajure will make his second start of the season and of his career. He allowed four earned runs on four hits and two walks across 4.1 innings in his first start at Detroit, but he has shown strong run prevention skills throughout his time in the minor leagues. Geoff Hartlieb was sent to Triple-A Indianapolis in the corresponding move.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Sent to alt site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates optioned Yajure to their alternate training site Thursday.

Pittsburgh had designated Yajure as its 27th man for Wednesday's doubleheader with the Tigers. He started the second game of the twin bill in his Pittsburgh debut, working 4.1 innings and giving up four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in a loss. Yajure will be a candidate to make spot starts for the Pirates later this season if injuries hit the team's rotation.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Yields four runs in Pirates debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure (0-1) took the loss against Detroit in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings.

Yajure made three appearances in relief for the Yankees last season, and Wednesday's outing was his first as a starter in the majors. He gave up a Niko Goodrum solo homer in the third inning but entered the fifth having yielded only one run. Things quickly fell apart for the right-hander in that fifth frame, however, as he allowed a leadoff blast to Jonathan Schoop along with two walks and a double before exiting. Overall, Yajure finished with four earned runs charged to his ledger, and he tossed 60 pitches (37 strikes) over 4.1 frames. The Pirates play only six games in the next eight days, so Yajure is likely to be sent back to the team's alternate training site rather than sticking in the rotation.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Making start in Game 2 of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates manager Derek Shelton said Yajure would be recalled from the taxi squad to start the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Tigers, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

One of the main pieces the Pirates took back in the Jameson Taillon trade over the winter, Yajure will be making his Pittsburgh debut and first MLB start after he previously made three relief appearances for the Yankees in 2020. The Pirates have presumably kept Yajure stretched out at the alternate site in preparation for a rotation role at Triple-A Indianapolis, but since the doubleheader game is only seven innings, the 22-year-old could be pulled at the first sign of trouble. He'll likely be headed back to the alternate site following the spot start.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Reports to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates optioned Yajure to their minor-league camp Wednesday.

One of the main pieces the Pirates received in the January trade that sent Jameson Taillon to the Yankees, Yajure drew positive reviews in his first camp with the Pirates. Over his four relief appearances, Yajure gave up three runs in six innings while striking out seven and limited opposing hitters to a .182 average. He'll likely open the season at Triple-A Indianapolis, but Yajure should receive a look with the big club at some point in 2021.

Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Looks good Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure hurled two scoreless innings against Atlanta on Tuesday, allowing no hits or walks while striking out a pair.

While the 22-year-old is expected to start the season at Triple-A, he could find his way to PNC Park this summer. He offers a fastball in the mid-90s and a four-pitch repertoire. Yajure pitched in two games for the Yankees on an emergency basis in 2020, but he's totaled only 11 innings above High-A ball in the minors.

January 25, 2021 09:32 AM
Pirates' Miguel Yajure: Traded to Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure, Canaan Smith, Roansy Contreras and Maikol Escotto were traded from the Yankees to the Pirates in exchange for Jameson Taillon (elbow) on Sunday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

The 22-year-old made his big-league debut in 2020 with three appearances for the Yankees and performed well, yielding one run across seven innings. Yajure jumped from Double-A straight to the majors and may begin 2021 at the Triple-A level, but a strong showing at spring training could earn him a spot on the Pirates' Opening Day roster.

Yankees' Miguel Yajure: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yajure was optioned to the Yankees' alternate training site Saturday.

Yajure's latest stint with the big-league squad lasted just a single day. He threw two scoreless innings of mop-up duty Saturday against the Marlins, striking out four while walking two and giving up one hit. Assuming he doesn't return to pitch Sunday, he'll finish the year having allowed one run on three hits in seven innings of relief work, striking out eight and walking four.
