Yonny Chirinos has cemented himself into the Tampa Bay Rays rotation this year. The Rays have been known to bring out the best in the players they have, and I truly think they have done that with Yonny. This year he has a record of 8-4 with a 3.11 ERA (ranked 14th) and a 0.96 WHIP making him as one of the best pitchers so far this year. Continue reading →
