Player Outlook
Despite playing for a team other than the Rays for the first time in his big-league career last season, Ryan Yarbrough once again served as the pitching equivalent of a super-utility player, bouncing between working as a starter, a bulk reliever and a conventional reliever. The left-hander even picked up first two MLB saves, though one was in a three-inning outing and the other covered four frames. Yarbrough's versatility makes him a useful part of a big-league pitching staff, but it hasn't usually translated to fantasy viability. The veteran hurler simply doesn't put up the type of stats that are attractive in most formats; namely, his strikeout rate (17.8 percent last year) typically hovers near the bottom fifth of the league, and he's posted a cumulative 4.80 ERA over the past three campaigns. His role as a soft-throwing swingman figures to remain the same in 2024.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Could fill bulk innings Wednesday

    Yarbrough could be available to cover multiple innings in relief for Wednesday's game in San Francisco while the Dodgers treat the series finale as a bullpen day, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. After Tuesday's 10-2 win, manager Dave Roberts said that no pitcher is "en route" from the minors to fill the hole in the rotation Wednesday, so the team will turn to a number of relievers to cover the innings. Yarbrough wasn't used in either of the first two games of the series in San Francisco and has covered three-plus innings on six other occasions this season, so he appears to be the Dodgers pitcher most likely to see heavy usage Wednesday.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Effective in long relief

    Yarbrough (2-0) picked up the win Tuesday night against the Nationals, allowing two runs on two hits while striking out three over five innings. Yarbrough was deployed as a bulk reliever and entered to begin the third after Kyle Hurt tossed two scoreless frames. Things started off a little rocky after he surrendered a two-run homer to Jesse Winker in his first inning, but the southpaw was able to settle in moving forward, retiring 14 straight batters to complete his outing. Five of Yarbrough's six appearances this season have lasted more than three outs, and he's been effective in a long relief role, posting a 3.20 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 9:4 K:BB in 19.2 innings.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Could work in bulk relief Tuesday

    Yarbrough could be deployed as a bulk reliever in Tuesday's game against the Nationals or work as a multi-inning option as part of a bullpen day, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. In an effort to keep rookie Yoshinobu Yamamoto on his normal schedule of five days' rest between starts, the Dodgers look to set to run with a six-man rotation this week. Since Walker Buehler (elbow) won't be ready to return from the 15-day injured list until next week and after Bobby Miller (shoulder) landed on the shelf over the weekend, the Dodgers will add two new pitchers to the rotation Tuesday and Wednesday. Yarbrough last pitched Friday, but he covered just one inning in relief and should be capable of covering four or five frames Tuesday, if needed to do so. The Dodgers are also planning to call up Kyle Hurt from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday to offer some extra length, so both Yarbrough and Hurt could be called upon to cover multiple innings if Los Angeles elects to use another reliever to open the game.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Grabs win in long relief

    Yarbrough (1-0) picked up the win Tuesday against the Giants, surrendering four runs on seven hits and a walk across 4.1 innings. He struck out one. Yarbrough worked in behind Ryan Brasier, who opened the game with a scoreless first inning. While he was able to avoid a blow-up, Yarbrough let runners score in three separate innings, including a solo homer to Jorge Soler to open up the sixth frame. Yarbrough has been utilized as a multi-inning reliever twice since the Dodgers returned stateside, landing a win and a save in those outings. However, he owns an overall era of 4.00 with a poor 3:3 K:BB through nine innings.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: In line for multi-inning role Tuesday

    Yarbrough is expected to serve as the bulk reliever Tuesday against the Giants, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. The Dodgers will elect to give the starting rotation an extra day off early in the season, and Yarbrough will be relied on to eat up innings as part of a bullpen game. The club has yet to announce who will open the contest. Yarbrough is off to a strong start to the 2024 campaign, surrendering one unearned run over 4.2 frames while fanning two and walking two.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Notches three-inning save

    Yarbrough picked up the save in Thursday's 7-1 win over the Cardinals, allowing just one hit while logging one strikeout over three scoreless innings. After Tyler Glasnow held St. Louis to one run in the first six innings, Yarbrough held the Redbirds to a lone single over three efficient innings as he earned an unexpected Opening Day save. The 32-year-old left-hander isn't likely to see many save chances going forward in Los Angeles, as he's slated for a long-relief role. Yarbrough went 8-7 with a 4.52 ERA and 67:14 K:BB across 89.2 innings last season between the Dodgers and Rays.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Gets $3.9 million from Dodgers

    The Dodgers and Yarbrough avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.9 million contract Thursday, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports. Yarbrough was in his final year of arbitration eligibility. The left-hander held a 4.52 ERA and 67:14 K:BB over 89.2 frames for the Royals and Dodgers in 2023.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Not on NLDS roster

    Yarbrough isn't listed on the Dodgers' roster for the NLDS, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Yarbrough turned in an ugly performance in his season finale, surrendering nine runs in four innings while striking out just two batters en route to a loss Sept. 28 against Colorado. He'll end up being passed up for the postseason roster while Emmet Sheehan and Michael Grove both earn spots.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Pummeled in Colorado

    Yarbrough (8-7) allowed nine runs on 11 hits and one walk while striking out two over four innings to take the loss versus the Rockies on Thursday. Yarbrough had allowed just eight runs over his first 15.1 innings in September, but a trip to Coors Field was responsible for his worst outing of the season. It inflated his ERA to 4.52 with a 1.23 WHIP and 67:14 K:BB through 89.2 innings between the Dodgers and the Royals. The southpaw will likely operate as a long-relief option during the Dodgers' postseason run.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Gets starting nod Thursday

    Yarbrough is listed as the Dodgers' probable starting pitcher for Thursday's game against the Rockies. The southpaw will be making just his second start for the Dodgers since being acquired in an Aug. 1 deal with the Royals, but he should be able to provide Los Angeles with plenty of length. He's worked three-plus innings in nine of his 10 outings with the Dodgers, pitching to a 3.12 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 36:4 K:BB over 34.2 innings. With a strong showing Thursday, Yarbrough could cement a spot in the Dodgers' postseason rotation, but he'll otherwise fill a key relief role if he misses out on a starting role.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Mops up in loss to Giants

    Yarbrough struck out five and was charged with two earned runs on five hits and one walk over 3.2 innings in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Giants. Yarbrough was one of two bulk relievers the Dodgers used behind opener Caleb Ferguson, who exited the contest after one inning. Right-hander Gavin Stone then came on and gave up three earned runs over 4.1 innings before Yarbrough finished out the contest. Since the Giants raced out to a 3-0 lead while Stone was on the mound, Yarbrough was spared the loss. Yarbrough now holds a 3.12 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 36:4 K:BB over 34.2 innings in 10 outings since being acquired from the Royals on Aug. 1.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: In line for bulk relief

    Yarbrough is expected to serve as a bulk reliever in Friday's game versus the Giants, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Caleb Ferguson will be the Dodgers' opener. It's possible the team will use a right-hander in between Ferguson and Yarbrough in order to break up the lefties, but Yarbrough looks to be in line to eat up the bulk of the innings.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Could piggyback Sheehan

    The Dodgers could deploy Yarbrough as a piggyback pitcher behind starter Emmet Sheehan in Thursday's game against the Giants, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. While manager Dave Roberts hasn't revealed how he plans to manage his pitching staff in the series opener, piggybacking the right-handed Sheehan with the left-handed Yarbrough would make sense. The Dodgers are cognizant of managing the rookie Sheehan's workload and haven't had him cover more than five innings in the majors or minors since July 29, so having him toss three or four frames before exiting the contest may be Roberts' preferred approach. Additionally, having Yarbrough enter the contest in the middle innings would help the Dodgers neutralize a Giants lineup that often contains four lefty bats in Michael Conforto, Joc Pederson, Mike Yastrzemski and LaMonte Wade. Yarbrough last pitched Sunday, but he should be capable of giving the Dodgers three or four innings on three days' rest, if necessary.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Earns win in return

    Yarbrough (8-6) earned the win Sunday over the Mariners, allowing one run on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over 4.2 innings. Yarbrough was recently away from the team to attend the birth of his daughter, though he was not officially placed on the paternity list. He was strong in his return, with the lone misstep being a J.P. Crawford RBI single in the second inning. Yarbrough has pitched to a 2.90 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP and 31:3 K:BB over 31 innings since he was traded from the Royals to the Dodgers. He's found success as a bulk reliever and will likely continue in that role. Given his typical schedule, he should be available again for his next appearance during next weekend's four-game series against the Giants.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Heading to paternity list

    Manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Yarbrough will be placed on the paternity list in the near future, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Yarbrough started Sunday's game against the Nationals and allowed two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out five in four innings. However, he'll now be away from the team for at least three days following the birth of his child. The Dodgers are expected to make the move official Monday and plan to call up Gavin Stone from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding transaction.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Set to pitch Sunday

    Yarbrough will pitch for the Dodgers on Sunday against the Nationals, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Yarbrough will either work behind an opener as a bulk reliever or make a traditional start, but regardless, he's slated to handle a good chunk of the innings for Los Angeles. The 31-year-old left-hander has an impressive 2.82 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 19:1 K:BB in 22.1 frames of long relief since being acquired from the Royals at the trade deadline.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Goes four innings for save

    Yarbrough allowed four hits and struck out four without walking a batter over four shutout innings to earn the save in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Diamondbacks. Yarbrough continues to serve as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen, and this marks the second time in six appearances as a Dodger that he logged a save of three-plus innings. He's maintained a 1.86 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 16:1 K:BB over 19.1 innings with his new team, and he's also collected three wins while still roughly operating every fifth day or so. Yarbrough is at a 3.58 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 45:10 K:BB through 70.1 innings overall when accounting for his time with the Royals. If Ryan Pepiot sticks in the rotation beyond Wednesday, Yarbrough may often serve as a piggyback for the young right-hander.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Collects three-inning save

    Yarbrough allowed a run on one hit and struck out two over three innings to earn the save in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Brewers. Yarbrough allowed a solo home run to Carlos Santana to start the seventh inning, then retired the next nine batters in a row. The three-inning outing earned Yarbrough his first major-league save. The southpaw has allowed two runs over 10.1 innings across his three appearances with the Dodgers, though it appears he's going to remain in a long-relief role with the rotation in a healthier state than when he arrived a couple of weeks ago. For the year, he's at a 3.82 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 38:9 K:BB through 61.1 innings between the Dodgers and the Royals.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Covers bulk innings

    Yarbrough allowed a run on three hits and struck out three without walking a batter over 4.1 innings as the bulk reliever in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Padres. He did not factor in the decision. Yarbrough's no stranger to working behind an opener in his career, and the Dodgers appear to want to continue that, at least for now. It worked in his team debut, though the bullpen couldn't maintain the lead after an eighth-inning meltdown. Yarbrough has started seven of his 15 appearances this season, posting a 4.07 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 32:9 K:BB through 55.1 innings while earning a 4-5 record. With Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) expected back next week, Yarbrough may have to settle for a more traditional multi-inning relief role unless the Dodgers want to go with something resembling a six-man rotation.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Yarbrough: Dealt to Dodgers

    The Dodgers acquired Yarbrough from the Royals on Tuesday in exchange for minor-league infielders Devin Mann and Derlin Figueroa, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. Yarbrough, 31, has a 4.24 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 29 strikeouts in 51 innings this season while working as both a starter and a bulk reliever. He will likely occupy a long-relief role while making the occasional spot start for the Dodgers, who have been relying on youngsters Bobby Miller, Emmet Sheehan and Michael Grove to round out the back end of the rotation but may be keen on managing their innings down the stretch.
