Yarbrough's role isn't certain heading into the season, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Yarbrough served as one of the Rays' signature "bulk guys" in 2018 and part of 2019 before becoming a proper starter in the middle of the season. He finished the year with a respectable 4.13 ERA, a 20.8 percent strikeout rate and an excellent 3.6 percent walk rate in 141.2 innings. His eventual role may not matter too much from a fantasy perspective, as he'll still have a chance to pick up wins as a bulk reliever when the Rays' opener doesn't last five innings, and he'll handle a fairly heavy workload regardless of exactly which innings he pitches.
