SP - NYM
The Miami Marlins have traded pitcher Jordan Yamamoto to the New York Mets in exchange for minor league infielder Federico Polanco.
Yamamoto, once a highly-regarded prospect, was part of the trade that sent Christian Yelich to Milwaukee. Yamamoto appeared in just four games in last year's shortened season, allowing 24 runs (23 earned) across 11.1 inning pitched. He pitched to a 4.46 ERA the year prior in 15 starts. Yamamoto figures to compete for a back-end spot in the Mets starting rotation.
The Marlins optioned RHP Jordan Yamamoto to their alternate training site.
Yamamoto was hit hard in a relief appearance on Wednesday, giving up an unholy 12 earned runs in just 2 2/3 innings. He has an 18.26 ERA this summer.
Jordan Yamamoto couldn't stop the bleeding in the Marlins' 29-9 loss to the Braves on Wednesday, giving up 13 runs (12 earned) on 11 hits over 2 2/3 innings.
Part of Yamamoto staying in the game was in an effort to help save the bullpen. Pablo Lopez started and recorded just five outs while giving up seven runs. Yamamoto will likely be optioned to the team's alternate site.
Jordan Yamamoto was yanked after recording just four outs on Monday against the Mets, surrendering three runs on three hits and three walks.
Yamamoto has given up 11 earned runs in 8 2/3 innings on the year. He doesn't need to be rostered in any fantasy leagues and isn't an options for DFS players.
Jordan Yamamoto was hit hard on Wednesday in Buffalo, giving up four runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings pitched.
Yamamoto struck out five and walked two. The early indications of the Blue Jays' new home park is that it's one made for hitters. Still, it isn't as if Yamamoto was much of a fantasy asset anyways. It's unclear if he'll make his next start or get optioned back to the Marlins' alternate site.
