SP - ATL
Huascar Ynoa pitched 4 2/3 innings against the Rockies Wednesday, allowing four hits, two runs (both earned), and two walks while striking out eight batters. He did not factor in the decision, a 3-2 Braves loss. He threw 92 pitches, 60 for strikes, and carries a 3.26 ERA.
Ynoa is making rookie mistakes and is getting his development in under live-fire. The 23-year-old has shown some good things to build upon, and he'll grow from these starts. But the fact remains that, speaking honestly, the team only has three bonafide starters right now. Ynoa has a future, yes, but he's still developing.
Huascar Ynoa pitched five innings against the Nationals Friday, allowing three hits, two runs (both earned), and two walks while striking out seven batters. He was not a factor in the decision, a 7-6 win for the Braves. Ynoa threw 89 pitches, 60 for strikes, and carries a 3.22 ERA.
Ynoa is getting every look from the team in order to determine his future role with them. He's done pretty well thus far, shown good promise. He has thrown five quality starts this year out of 13 games started and he just needs to keep building off of each start. His fantasy value now is limited, mostly because manager Brian Snitker doesn't want high pitch counts from any of his pitchers.
Huascar Ynoa pitched 5 2/3 innings against the Rockies Friday, allowing five hits, four runs (all earned), and one walk while striking out five batters. It was all the runs the Rockies needed to win 4-3, and Ynoa's record fell to 4-5 on the year. He threw 91 pitches, 62 for strikes, and he carries a 3.19 ERA.
Ynoa is a fixture in the rotation now, and that will likely be the case moving forward into next year. He's so close to where he needs to be, but he will get there. Tonight was a bit sloppy, and he'll look to sharpen things up in his next outing.
Huascar Ynoa pitched six innings against the Giants Saturday, allowing three hits, two runs (both earned, and three walks while striking out three batters. The Braves offense struggled in this one, losing 5-0, and Ynoa's record falls to 4-4 on the year. He threw 96 pitches, 59 for strikes, and he carries a 2.90 ERA.
This is his second straight quality start and his third start since returning from the IL. In those three starts, he has pitched well, limiting earned runs even though he can be a tad inefficient with his pitches. His ownership in fantasy leagues mirrors that success, but he might be available in your league, and if so, he deserves serious consideration.
Huascar Ynoa pitched six innings against the Yankees Monday, allowing four hits, three runs (all earned), and one walk while striking out nine batters. Ynoa was tagged with the loss as the Braves offense couldn't generate any run support, his record falls to 4-3 on the year but he did earn a quality start. He threw 93 pitches, 60 for strikes, and carries a 2.89 ERA.
The Braves and Yankees met Monday, the two hottest teams in baseball right now, and Ynoa was up to the task. His role going forward should be set in cement, he looks strong.
