Ynoa threw a scoreless inning against the Red Sox on Wednesday. A few of the White Sox's late-inning arms were unavailable due to recent heavy use, so manager Robin Ventura called on Ynoa in just his third career game. He nearly surrendered two home runs in the appearance, but both were overturned on replay. Ynoa might be cut out for more middle-inning work for the remainder of his stay with the Sox.
Ynoa was recalled prior to Tuesday's game against Detroit. The 24-year-old will add depth to the Chicago's taxed bullpen as a right-handed option. He threw 4.0 scoreless innings at Double-A Birmingham earlier in the season before being promoted to Triple-A Charlotte, where he has struggled a bit. In 18 relief appearances at Triple-A, Ynoa has worked a 4.56 ERA with a 1.563 WHIP across 23.2 innings. Tuesday marks his first big league call-up after spending the past six seasons in the minors.
Ynoa was promoted to Triple-A Charlotte from Double-A Birmingham on Saturday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports. Ynoa threw four scoreless innings and struck out four while with Double-A Birmingham and his solid production was rewarded with a promotion. Last season with High-A Winston-Salem, the 6-7 righty recorded a 2.61 ERA over 38 innings. He'll look to carry over those types of numbers now with Triple-A Charlotte.
Ynoa was optioned to Double-A Birmingham on Monday. The right-hander filled in for Adam Eaton (personal) while he was on the paternity list, but Ynoa will head back to the minors as expected now that Eaton has returned. The 24-year-old will look to build up more experience against upper-level hitters before heading back to the big club.
Ynoa should return to Double-A Birmingham on Monday, Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald reports. The White Sox recalled Ynoa before Sunday's game to take Adam Eaton's (paternity) roster spot. Eaton is expected to return to the team Monday, so Ynoa should return to the minors. Rain postponed the game Sunday, so Ynoa never actually got a chance to suit up.
