Are the Rays moving away from the Opener?

Are the Rays moving away from the Opener?

Yonny Chirinos makes his fourth consecutive start this afternoon. A starting pitcher records a “quality start” when he pitches at least six innings and allows three earned runs or fewer. It’s more of a novelty stat, like wins and losses. It seeks to give narrative to a pitcher’s performance more than evaluate it. And given the Rays quick hook and penchant for the Opener, you would think they’re near the bottom of rankings for that statistic. Indeed, the Angels — the other team actively employing the Opener this season — ranks 30th in baseball in quality starts with 12 on the...

Red Sox 2, Rays 9: Still searching for offense

Red Sox 2, Rays 9: Still searching for offense

The Red Sox lineup was mostly shut down for a second straight game. The Red Sox offense is missing. If anyone has any information on its whereabouts, please contact the proper authorities. For the second straight game, Boston’s hitters were unable to get much of anything going against the Rays starter. Yonny Chirinos went eight shutout innings on Friday, and then on Saturday Ryan Yarbrough would allow just one unearned run (two total) while recording just one fewer out. It’s not great! The Red Sox have now lost pretty much all momentum they’d built up in their previous four games, and...

Rays select Pruitt as their 26th man

Colin Poche may be promoted following the first game The Tampa Bay Rays have selected right-handed pitcher Austin Pruitt as their ‘26th player’ for their double-header later today against the Boston Red Sox. The first game is slated for 1 p.m, and the second game taking place at 7 p.m. On Friday, Yonny Chirinos pitched a gem of a game to allow the Rays bullpen some extra rest as he tossed eight shutout innings. The only other pitcher the Rays used was Emilio Pagan, who allowed a run as he closed out the game. Pruitt is just one of the fresh arms to join the Rays pen; prior to...

• When Tyler Glasnow was hurt in May, the Rays were reluctant to name a replacement as the third traditional starter. But Yonny Chirinos has made an impressive case to graduate from occasionally pitching behind an opener to get that opportunity.• Kevin Kiermaier has

Red Sox 1, Rays 5: Yonny Chirinos dominates

Red Sox 1, Rays 5: Yonny Chirinos dominates

An ugly day for the Red Sox offense Well, the win streak ends at four. The Red Sox offense had been playing well over the four-game run, but their success came to a screeching halt on Friday night against Yonny Chirinos. The Rays starter set a new career high with eight scoreless innings in this game and he executed his game plan to perfection. The righty relies more on great movement and weak contact than pure stuff, and his sinker/splitter combination was deadly in this game. In fact, it was good enough to get through five perfect innings. The Red Sox did get one big chance in the sixth...
