Ryan Yarbrough Finishes What He Started Against Yankees

Ryan Yarbrough became a big leaguer at a time when the highest esteem was reserved for pitchers who started games and those that finished them. The Tampa Bay Rays left-hander has helped transform baseball in a role that does neither, and so he knows how rare a chance he got Thursday when Manager Kevin Cash gave him back the ball with the chance to start and finish the ninth inning.

Rays vs. Phillies prediction: Ryan Yarbrough will spark Tampa Bay

Wait, don’t tell me! Noah Syndergaard, Noah Syndergaard? The backup goalie for the Winnipeg Jets? … OK, I give up. Who is he?. The red-hot Rays host the injury-plagued Phillies. Philly’s depleted lineup, combined with their inadequate road record, make for a tough sell. But Zack Wheeler (4-2, 2.38 ERA) goes Saturday. Zack whacked Boston last out, limiting the Sox to one run over seven strong after shutting out Miami for seven innings in his previous start. Tampa Bay has been on a tear and leap-frogged Boston to the top of the AL East. Ryan Yarbrough (2-3, 4.27 ERA) may be the weakest link in the Rays’ rotation.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Lucky to post quality start

Yarbrough gave up six runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks while fanning two across six innings Wednesday against the Orioles. He didn't factor into the decision. Yarbrough can consider himself to have posted his first quality start of the campaign, as half of the runs he gave up were unearned. Between poor outings and short starts, the 29-year-old left-hander has been unable to become a reliable presence in the rotation for the Rays and owns a 2-3 record with a 4.24 ERA through nine starts, though that figure would be a career-worst mark for him. His next chance to start is scheduled for next Monday at Toronto.

Statcast Review: Giancarlo Stanton, Francisco Lindor, Ryan Yarbrough (2021 Fantasy Baseball)

We’re now more than a month into the season, which means baseball nerds like me now have a decent sample size of data to evaluate. A month is still a relatively small sample in terms of a baseball season, but it’s our first substantial split and our first real opportunity to take a step back and look at some early trends. And we aren’t going to focus on the traditional statistics in this space. Anyone can look at box scores and find those. Instead, we’re interested in Statcast data and what it tells us about certain players.
