Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Placed on IL

Yarbrough (oblique) was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. As expected, Yarbrough was placed on the IL after he suffered a right oblique strain in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays. The left-hander will now miss the remainder of the regular season and have a shot at returning early in the playoffs. Calvin Faucher was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Friday to replace Yarbrough on the active roster.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Departs with apparent injury

Yarbrough was removed from Thursday's game against the Blue Jays with an apparent injury, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The left-hander followed opener JT Chargois and allowed a pair of solo homers during the second inning, and he was lifted after initially taking the mound for the third frame. The 30-year-old should be considered day-to-day until more information is available on the injury.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Set for bulk-relief role

Yarbrough is expected to serve as a bulk reliever behind opener JT Chargois in Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Since being called up from Triple-A Durham on Aug. 30, all three of Yarbrough's appearances have come out of the bullpen on days the Rays have deployed openers. In those outings, Yarbrough has gone 1-0 with an 0.84 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 6:3 K:BB in 10.2 innings. The Rays may continue to deploy him as a bulk reliever so long as the arrangement keeps yielding quality results.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Mops up Sunday

Yarbrough covered five scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Sunday's 10-4 loss to the Yankees. He struck out three and gave up two hits while issuing no walks. Coming into the day, Yarbrough hadn't been expected to pitch, but the Rays needed him to mop up after starter Luis Patino recorded just four outs before departing. Even though Yarbrough was excellent in long relief, his performance didn't mean much since he entered the contest with the Rays already trailing by nine runs. Yarbrough will likely be deployed as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen or as a starter at some point during next weekend's series with the Rangers.

Rays put reliever Ryan Thompson on injured list, recall Ryan Yarbrough

MIAMI — The Rays have given reliever Ryan Thompson two extended stretches of rest this month, with five, four and six days between appearances. But it hasn’t seemed to cure what ails the side-arming right-hander, so now they will give him an extended break. Tampa Bay on Tuesday put Thompson on the 15-day injured list (retroactive to Saturday) due to right triceps inflammation.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Called back up to majors

The Rays recalled Yarbrough from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. Tampa Bay optioned Yarbrough to Triple-A on Saturday since the team planned to get by with a four-man rotation during its five-game week, but reliever Ryan Thompson's (triceps) move to the injured list Tuesday prompted the team to bring Yarbrough back from the minors earlier than anticipated. Yarbrough is expected to work out of the bullpen for the next few days before likely slotting back into the rotation when a fifth starter is next required Sept. 6 versus the Red Sox.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Wild in loss

Yarbrough (0-7) took the loss Tuesday in Milwaukee, allowing three runs on four hits, two hit batsmen and a walk while striking out five in 3.1 innings. Yarbrough served in the bulk-reliever role and entered the game in the second inning after Jimmy Yacabonis opened the game. In addition to his two hit batsman, the left-hander threw two wild pitches and seven of the 16 batters he faced reached base safely. It has been an inconsistent year for the 30-year-old and, while his 5.08 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 40:15 K:BB in 56.2 innings leave something to be desired, the Rays continue to give him opportunities to eat innings. He's likely to pitch again early next week against the Yankees.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Sticks in bulk-relief role Tuesday

The Rays plan to deploy Yarbrough as a bulk reliever behind opener Jimmy Yacabonis in Tuesday's game in Milwaukee, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Yarbrough will follow an opener for his second straight outing after the arrangement paid dividends his last time out Wednesday, when he came on behind lefty Jalen Beeks. Though he didn't factor into the decision, Yarbrough delivered four innings of one-run ball while allowing just two baserunners and striking out one. The southpaw will follow the right-handed Yacabonis this time around, with the righty/lefty combination to begin the game perhaps deterring the Brewers from fielding a righty-heavy lineup that might have more success against Yarbrough.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Takes loss despite solid effort

Yarbrough (0-6) took the loss Thursday, allowing one run on four hits and zero walks over six innings against the Orioles. He struck out eight.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Takes fifth loss

Yarbrough (0-5) allowed three earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two across four innings to take the loss Saturday against the Royals. Yarbrough entered the game in the fifth inning, following Luis Patino. Yarbrough held the Royals scoreless through his first three frames of work but gave up a pair of homers in the eighth inning to account for all of the damage against him. Yarbrough has struggled across two appearances since being recalled by the Rays on July 16, allowing five earned runs, 11 hits and two walks across 9.1 innings.

Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Settles for no-decision

Yarbrough completed 5.1 innings against Baltimore on Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out four. He did not factor in the decision. Yarbrough was called up to prior to Saturday's start after spending most of June and the first half of July in the minors. The left-hander looked good against the Orioles, throwing 43 of 65 pitches for strikes and departing in the sixth inning in line for the victory. Though Tampa Bay's bullpen couldn't hold the lead, it was nonetheless a promising start for Yarbrough after he surrendered 10 runs over seven innings across two big-league appearances in June. Yarbrough could hold onto a rotation spot with Shane Baz (elbow) out until at least September, though Jeffrey Springs' (leg) imminent return could also push Yarbrough back to the minors or into the bullpen.
