  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Optioned to Durham

    Tampa Bay optioned Chirinos to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday.

    Chirinos gets the boot from the 26-man active roster after allowing three runs over 4.2 innings in Tuesday's win over the Mets. The Rays added Zack Burdi from Triple-A Durham to provide a fresh arm in the bullpen in the short term, but Tampa Bay will need to bring in another pitcher to fill Chirinos' turn in the rotation in the coming days. Both Taj Bradley and Cooper Criswell could be in store for call-ups from Triple-A Durham in the near future with replacements in the rotation needed for both Chirinos and Drew Rasmussen (elbow).

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Back in win column Tuesday

    Chirinos (2-1) got the win over the Mets on Tuesday, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two over 4.2 innings.

    Chirinos qualified for the win after Jalen Beeks pitched two scoreless innings and handed the ball off to Chirinos in the third. Two of the three hits he gave up were home runs. Brett Baty took him deep in the fifth and then Pete Alonso crushed a two-run blast in the seventh. Chirinos has mostly been used as a bulk reliever this season and overall, he has been successful in that role. He has an unsightly 11:11 K:BB but owns a respectable 2.79 ERA and 0.97 WHIP across 29 innings.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Set for bulk relief Tuesday

    Chirinos will serve as a bulk reliever behind opener Jalen Beeks in Tuesday's game against the Mets, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos will be making his fourth appearance since moving into Tampa Bay's rotation, although just one has been a traditional start. He holds a 2.22 ERA this season but also has an unsightly 9:10 K:BB over 24.1 innings.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Handed first loss

    Chirinos (1-1) took the loss Tuesday against the Orioles, allowing two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out a batter over five innings.

    Chirinos replaced Jalen Beeks to begin the third inning and kept the Orioles off the board until the sixth. He allowed back-to-back hits and a walk to load the bases before Adam Frazier's groundout to second and Austin Hays' single drove in a pair of runs. Chirinos would come back out for the seventh and send the Orioles down in order on just seven pitches. The 29-year-old now owns a 2.22 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 9:10 K:BB over 24.1 innings. He's expected to take the bump again next week against the Mets, when he'll try to get his trouble with the free passes in line, as Chirinos has allowed eight walks over his last two outings.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Set for bulk role Wednesday

    Chirinos is slated to work in a bulk-relief role for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos stepped into the Tampa Bay rotation last weekend against the Yankees, covering 5.1 innings in a traditional starting role while giving up three earned runs on three hits and four walks. The performance marked a step back from how he had fared in his first four extended relief appearances, as Chirinos came into that start with a 0.64 ERA and 0.57 WHIP over 14 innings. Though he looks like he'll have a spot in the rotation until either Tyler Glasnow (oblique) is activated from the 15-day injured list or Taj Bradley is recalled from Triple-A Durham, Chirinos looks like he could jostle between starting and bulk relieving, depending on matchups and on what pitchers the Rays have available on a given day. Jalen Beeks is slated to open Wednesday's game and will likely cover one or two innings before giving way to Chirinos.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Remains in rotation

    Chirinos is slated to start Wednesday's game in Baltimore, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Though Chirinos had unremarkable results in his first start of the season this past Friday against the Yankees -- he covered 5.1 innings and gave up three runs on three hits and four hits while failing to strike out a batter -- he'll get another turn through the Tampa Bay rotation. The Rays could look to deploy Chirinos behind an opener at some point in an effort to coax better results from him, but at least for the time being, he lines up to make a traditional start Wednesday.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Mixed results in first start

    Chirinos did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing three runs on three hits and four walks over 5.1 innings during a 5-4 win over the Yankees. He struck out zero.

    Chirinos made his first start of the season Friday after posting a 0.64 ERA over 14 frames as a multi-inning reliever. He got early run support and blanked the Yankees' offense for five innings before getting into trouble in the sixth. He allowed one run to come in before he was pulled with two on and one out, but both those baserunners came around to score on a Harrison Bader home run. It wasn't the best performance for the 29-year-old, who walked four and didn't record a strikeout, but he was able to mitigate the damage and may have done enough to draw another start next week.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Making first start

    Chirinos will make his first start of the season Friday against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos has been excellent while working as a multi-inning reliever thus far, holding a 0.64 ERA and 8:2 K:BB over 14 frames. He'll be pitching on five days' rest Friday after tossing 4.2 frames of one-run ball and picking up a win last weekend versus the White Sox. Chirinos threw 66 pitches in that outing, so he should theoretically be able to get his pitch count up to around 80 versus the Yankees.
