Chirinos (forearm) to DL; Rays recall Yarbrough

Special to MLB.com

DETROIT -- The Rays announced ahead of Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Tigers that rookie Yonny Chirinos was placed on the 10-day DL with a right forearm strain, retroactive to Sunday. Ryan Yarbrough was recalled from Triple-A Durham and joined the team in Detroit.

Chirinos experienced some discomfort in his right forearm while throwing his bullpen session Tuesday, manager Kevin Cash said, of the club's No. 21 prospect, as ranked by MLB Pipeline. The Rays said they don't believe it is anything serious, but won't know the extent of the injury until he sees a doctor when the team returns home.

"He's on the DL, but we've got to protect that kid," Cash said. "He's a big part of our season right now, going forward. When he complains, or any of them complain of something, we're going to be overcautious and get them checked out."

Yarbrough could potentially be in line to start Friday's game against Toronto. He is 1-1 with a 4.19 ERA in seven appearances with the Rays this season. His lone start came on April 15 against the Phillies, when he allowed two earned runs over 4 2/3 innings.

Yarbrough was optioned to Durham last week after picking up his first Major League win against Boston, as the team recalled Chih-Wei Hu.

Chirinos is 0-1 with a 3.71 ERA in five starts and a relief appearance this season.
