The Tampa Bay Rays placed Ryan Yarbrough on the injured list on Monday, retroactive to Friday. They called up RHP Ryan Thompson to the big leagues on Monday, and have added Tommy Romero to the taxi squad. Romero is expected to be called up on Tuesday and get the start against the Athletics, which would have been Yarbrough's spot in the rotation.
Yarbrough is expected to only miss the one start, and return to the club when he is eligible on April 18 at the Chicago Cubs. Remember you can hear every Rays game all season long on 95.3 WDAE & AM 620, your Home of the Rays.
