What are you guys smoking? You're disappointed when Yonny Chirinos goes 6 innings and gives up 3 runs and is most likely in line for a Win? Sorry he didn't throw a perfect game. Not a bad start at all

You said it, man...

Yeah, he did flash some last year. I think there's a solid combo of stuff/pitchability that works. Always like how Tampa unlocks pitching.

His role will certainly means he comes cheaply. I like that he offers RP/SP eligibility, that's some swing value in deeper formats.

He's a good pitcher, I think they don't mess around with him and start every 5th day.

-FB (sinker) was moving around with vertical run like crazy and averaged 95+ MPH with 5 whiffs in 48 ptiches, strike rate over 70%

-Threw 15 SL at 88 MPH, 67% strike rate and a whiff

-Threw 17 splitters at 86 MPH and got 7 whiffs with it, room to throw it more often going forward

- Threw 5 cutters at 92 MPH, all for strikes and 1 whiff

-Also three 4 seamers and got a whiff on 1

Any update on whether he will be a traditional starter this season or not?  Anyone know what is going on in Kevin Cash's head?

I don't think anybody but Kevin Cash ever truly knows what is going on up there (if he even does at times even though it works).  Naming him a traditional starter would completely end their opener/bulk reliever strategy unless they play a ton of days in a row and want to push back their starters, but getting rid of it for the most part wouldn't be a bad thing obviously.

An interesting thing to keep an eye on, as he could have legit value if he gets to start every 5th day.  I don't think anything has been said for sure yet, as he doesn't officially have another start listed yet as far as I know.

CBS has him listed as a starter on 4/6 during the SF series, going against Samardijicisiazia

Now cbs has Stanek listed for 4/6 and Yarborough 4/7

Stanek will be opener for #Rays on Saturday.

I guess I won't be starting Chirinos.

God this pisses me off. I'd be so pissed if I was Chirinos. Just getting the SHAFT for a miraculous start to the year.

After the game he had?? Man, I don't have any issue with the opener strategy and think it's smart if you don't have guys who can go 6-7 quality innings, but it seems like Yonny might be that guy. What a let down.

I agree 1,000%. Like I can't imagine how I would feel from Yonny's perspective. He goes out and throws a 2-hit GEM through 7 IP. Thinks his career really has a shot and goin' off now after he established who he was with them last year. And this Kevin Cash keeps giving him the shaft? Makes absolutely no sense. Just messing with this kids head now.

I guess last hope is since that's not from an official source they might be guessing incorrectly.

My post above is from Marc Topkin, he's a Beat writer for the Rays. He states Stanek will be Opener for Saturday.

Is Stanek supposed to go 1-2 innings and then Chirinos takes over? Either way, he might still be line for a win. Is that fair to say?

 

Yea but for those QS leagues it really kills value. i'm in a QS + W league so at least i can get half of the available stats there but still....

Oh yeah, I agree. I am just in a W league so I think this situation doesn't really affect that much. I picked him up and will plug him in tomorrow.

Stanek usually only goes 1 inning when he opens, I think.

Gotta get that amazing top of the Giants order out with an inferior pitcher!

I guess he’s not pitching today... tomorrow?

The beat writer Marc Topkin is even confused on what the hell the Rays are doing. I think Chirinos pitches tomorrow the traditional way if you don't see him today. *fingers crossed*
