  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Moved to 60-day IL

    Atlanta transferred Chirinos (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    Chirinos is done for the remainder of the regular season due to a right elbow injury. It was initially labeled as inflammation but might be more serious than that. The 29-year-old surrendered 23 earned runs in 22.1 major-league innings (five starts) with the NL East leaders in 2023 and could be a non-tender candidate this winter.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Placed on IL with elbow injury

    Atlanta placed Chirinos on the 15-day injured list Monday with right elbow inflammation.

    Chirinos seemingly had been set to lose his rotation spot due to performance, but instead he'll go on the IL and will be sidelined at least until early September. Allan Winans was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move and will replace Chirinos in the rotation beginning with Monday's game against the Mets.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Middling effort against Giants

    Chirinos didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Giants, allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk over four innings while striking out four.

    After giving up six runs in both of his last two starts, Chirinos showed modest improvement Saturday by surrendering only four runs. Since being acquired by Atlanta on July 23, Chirinos owns an ugly 9.27 ERA and 22:7 K:BB and has yet to go deeper than five innings in any of his outings. He's tentatively scheduled for a rematch with the Giants in San Francisco for his next start next weekend, though it's possible his spot in the rotation could be in jeopardy.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Hammered by Mets

    Chirinos (5-5) allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.2 innings Sunday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Mets.

    Chirinos held the Mets to one run through four frames before they broke out in the fifth inning. He was charged with six runs for the second straight outing, driving his ERA up to 5.22 through 81 frames. Over his last nine starts, Chirinos has registered a brutal 8.05 ERA. His next appearance is projected to be at home against the Giants.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Blasted by Bucs

    Chirinos escaped with a no-decision Tuesday in Atlanta's 8-6 win over the Pirates, surrendering six runs on seven hits -- including four home runs -- over five innings. He struck out five.

    A Ke'Bryan Hayes three-run blast in the first inning set the tone for Chirinos' night, but Atlanta rallied in the ninth to take the right-hander off the hook for his fifth loss of the year. He's mostly been a disaster so far for the NL East leaders since being claimed off waivers from the Rays, lurching to an 8.56 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB through 13.2 innings over three starts, and it's no coincidence that AJ Smith-Shawver is on the same schedule as Chirinos as Triple-A. The 20-year-old struck out seven without walking a batter in a six-inning quality start for Gwinnett on Tuesday, and Atlanta could call him back up to fill the fifth starter role -- bumping Chirinos to the bullpen, or perhaps even back to the waiver wire -- as soon as this weekend's road series against the Mets.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Season-high five strikeouts in win

    Chirinos (1-0) earned the win Wednesday, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk over five innings against the Angels while striking out five.

    After striking out Shohei Ohtani to open the bottom of the fourth, Chirinos allowed a single and a walk to the next two batters, which would eventually lead to the Angels' first run coming home. The right-hander was then relieved by Michael Tonkin in the sixth after allowing back-to-back to singles to open the frame, but not before racking up a season-high five strikeouts on the afternoon. It marked Chirinos' first win with his new club, though he's now given three or more runs in each of his last three starts.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Remains in rotation

    Chirinos is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Angels at Truist Park, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    He'll go head-to-head with the Angels' Lucas Giolito as both pitchers make their second starts for their new teams. In his Atlanta debut this past Friday against the Brewers, Chirinos lasted just 3.2 innings while giving up four runs on six hits and one walk, but he induced 10 swinging strikes on 61 pitches, good for a season-best 16.4 percent rate.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Making Atlanta debut Friday

    Chirinos is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Brewers in Atlanta.

    Chirinos will be making his Atlanta debut after the club claimed him off waivers from Tampa Bay last weekend. The 29-year-old had often worked as a primary pitcher out of the Rays bullpen this season, but he's expected to fill a traditional starting role for an Atlanta squad that has had its rotation depth tested. He'll carry a 4.02 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into Friday's contest.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Escapes with no-decision

    Chirinos came away with a no-decision in Atlanta's 10-7 win over the Brewers on Friday, giving up four runs on six hits and a walk over 3.2 innings. He struck out three.

    Making his Atlanta debut after being claimed off waivers from the Rays last weekend, Chirinos did little to discourage his new club from trying to add more rotation depth at the trade deadline. The 29-year-old right-hander has a 4.34 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 34:21 K:BB through 66.1 innings on the season, and he could find himself bumped to the bullpen or even off the big-league roster when Max Fried (forearm) is ready to return.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Set to work as starter

    Chirinos will serve as a starter for Atlanta, Mark Bowman of reports.

    Chirinos was claimed off waivers by Atlanta on Sunday, and the team sent Michael Soroka to the minors as part of a corresponding move. Max Fried (forearm) will also make another rehab start this week, so Chirinos will have an opportunity to showcase his skills as a starter. The right-hander made 15 appearances (four starts) for the Rays earlier this year and posted a 4.02 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 62.2 innings.

  • Braves' Yonny Chirinos: Claimed by Atlanta

    Chirinos was claimed off waivers by Atlanta on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay on Monday and will now join the team with the best record in baseball. The right-hander worked as a swingman for the Rays and had a 4.02 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31:20 K:BB across 62.2 innings, though he surrendered 18 earned runs in his past 24.1 frames before being DFA'd. Max Fried (forearm) is closing in on his return from the injured list, so Chirinos seems likely to start out in the bullpen with his new organization.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Dropped from 40-man roster

    The Rays designated Chirinos for assignment Monday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Tampa Bay had been treating Chirinos as its de facto No. 5 starter heading into the All-Star break, but the right-hander was summoned in long relief of starter Zach Eflin during Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Royals and proceeded to give up three earned runs on four hits -- including three home runs -- in 4.2 innings. Due to his 50-pitch workload, Chirinos wasn't likely to be available for at least a few games, and his lack of freshness and poor peripherals on the season (5.31 SIERA, 4.2 K-BB%) provided enough reason for Tampa Bay to remove him from its 40-man roster. The Rays reinstated lefty Shane McClanahan (back) from the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Takes loss in relief

    Chirinos dropped to 4-4 after allowing three earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out one across 2.2 innings in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Phillies.

    Of the eight hits Chirinos allowed, four went for extra bases. After a successful start to his stint in the majors beginning June 8, he has now allowed 15 earned runs across his last 18.2 innings. The Rays may need to continue to get creative with their rotation due to the number of injuries they're currently dealing with, but Chirinos hasn't been a solution of late.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Working in bulk relief once again

    Chirinos is slated to work as a bulk reliever behind opener Zack Littell in Wednesday's home game versus the Phillies, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Littell and Chirinos worked in tandem successfully during Chirinos' most recent turn through the rotation last Thursday against the Diamondbacks, so manager Kevin Cash will stick with the arrangement once again this week. After Littell tossed two scoreless frames in Arizona, Chirinos came on to pick up the win while striking out four and allowing one earned run on four hits and three walks over six innings out of the bullpen.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Earns win in bulk role

    Chirinos (4-3) earned the win in Thursday's 6-1 victory over the Diamondbacks. He allowed a run on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over six innings.

    After Zack Littell opened the game with two scoreless innings, Chirinos delivered six strong frames out of the bullpen, allowing just one run on a Lourdes Gurriel homer. It was an encouraging effort from the 29-year-old Chirinos after he was tagged for eight runs in his last outing against the Royals. Chirinos lowered his ERA to 3.64 with a 1.20 WHIP and 27:19 K:BB through 54.1 innings this season.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Handling bulk-relief role Thursday

    Chirinos is slated to work in bulk relief during Thursday's game in Arizona, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos was deployed as a traditional starter his last time out Saturday versus the Royals, but after he allowed a season-high eight earned runs across 5.1 innings in that outing, the Rays will hope to get better results from him by having him enter Thursday's contest out of the bullpen. Zack Littell will likely work an inning or two as the Rays' opener before giving way to Chirinos.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Hit around by Royals

    Chirinos (3-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing eight runs on nine hits and two walks over 5.1 innings against the Royals. He struck out three.

    Chirinos allowed a season-high eight runs Saturday, including a solo homer to Drew Waters in the third and a three-run shot to Freddy Fermin in the fourth. With a handful of the Rays' starting options on the 60-day injured list, Chirinos has been thrust into the rotation for four starts, where he's posted a 6.43 ERA with a 10:8 K:BB while going fewer than six innings in each appearance. Though he will likely stick around in the Rays rotation for a while, Chirinos isn't a trustworthy option in most formats.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Handed second loss

    Chirinos (3-2) took the loss Sunday versus the Padres, allowing five runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out three over 4.2 innings.

    Chirinos made his third start of the year but wasn't able to replicate his success from his previous outing. The right-hander didn't get help from his defense Sunday, and he needed 90 pitches (52 strikes) to get 14 outs. He's now at a 2.72 ERA, 1.02 WHIP And 20:14 K:BB through 43 innings over 10 appearances. Chirinos has occasionally worked behind an opener this season, which would likely help him qualify for more wins. He's projected to make his next appearance at home versus the Royals in a favorable matchup.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Confirmed for start Sunday

    Chirinos will start Sunday's game against San Diego, Kristie Ackert of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Chirinos will get the ball after throwing 3.2 scoreless innings versus Oakland on Tuesday. The right-hander will get a chance to pick up a win and a few extra innings while not working behind an opener for Sunday's series finale against the Padres.

  • Rays' Yonny Chirinos: Pitches well Tuesday

    Chirinos allowed two hits and a walk while striking out two over 3.2 scoreless innings Tuesday versus the Athletics. He did not factor in the decision.

    Chirinos covered the most innings of the five pitchers the Rays used in a 2-1 loss. This was his first scoreless outing since April 23. It's unclear if Chirinos will be deployed as a traditional starter or work behind an opener going forward. He's pitched to a 2.35 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 17:12 K:BB through 38.1 innings over nine appearances (two starts) this season. Regardless of the usage, he's lined up for a weekend appearance on the road in San Diego if he remains a part of the Rays' rotation.
