Rays' Jimmy Yacabonis: Gets chance as opener

The Rays will deploy Yacabonis as an opener in front of bulk reliever Ryan Yarbrough in Tuesday's game against the Brewers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The arrangement could deter the Brewers from fielding a righty-heavy lineup Tuesday, as the right-handed Yacabonis will likely work an inning or two before giving way to the left-handed Yarbrough. The Rays will be hoping for better results in Yacabonis' second appearance with the team, as he was lit up for three earned runs while recording just two outs in his debut Saturday in Detroit after he had recently been scooped up off waivers from the Marlins.

Slippin’ Jimmy Yacabonis into the Bullpen

The Rays made a fairly quiet but extremely Rays-y move yesterday, claiming RHP Jimmy Yacabonis off waivers from the Miami Marlins. Yacabonis has bounced around the league in his first 5 years in the majors. There’s good reasons for that. His stuff is incredible and eye-popping and every team is gonna believe “we can fix this”. He is available to be fixed because his command is still very poor and finds an awful lot of barrels.

Marlins' Jimmy Yacabonis: Lands on injured list

Yacabonis was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left groin strain Saturday, retroactive to July 13, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Yacabonis hasn't been particularly sharp recently, and he gave up six runs (five earned) in two innings over his last two appearances. The right-hander will be unavailable until nearly the end of July due to his injury, while his placement on the IL clears space on the active roster for Max Meyer, whose contract was selected Saturday.

Mariners' Jimmy Yacabonis: Designated for assignment

Yacabonis was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Monday. Yacabonis' contract was selected Saturday, but he didn't make any appearances during his two days in the major-league bullpen. The right-hander recorded a 1.72 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 31.1 innings across 24 appearances (one start) at Triple-A Tacoma this year and will likely remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
