Atlanta doesn't anticipate Ynoa (hand) to return from the 60-day injured list until the second half of August, MLB.com reports. Though Ynoa avoided surgery after fracturing his right (throwing) hand in mid-May, he'll need to wait at least six weeks to fully heal before he can even begin a throwing program. Once he's ready to throw, Ynoa will likely require an additional month to fully build up for a starting role, so he's projected to spend well beyond the minimum 60 days on the shelf. The injury interrupted what was shaping up to be an impressive season for the 23-year-old, who supplied a 3.02 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 50:11 K:BB in 44.2 innings over his first nine outings.
Ynoa (hand) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday. Ynoa is expected to miss at least two months after he fractured his right hand while punching the dugout bench May 16, so his shift to the 60-day IL doesn't come as a surprise. The move will create room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Abraham Almonte, whose contract was selected by Atlanta as part of a corresponding move.
Ynoa fractured his right hand punching the dugout bench Sunday and will miss at least two months, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Atlanta placed him on the 10-day injured list Monday. Ynoa was angry after allowing five runs on nine hits in 4.1 innings Sunday against the Brewers, and that anger will now cause him to miss an extended period. He's unlikely to return before the All-Star break. It's a very unfortunate injury for Atlanta, as the 22-year-old had gotten off to an excellent start to the season, riding his 27.9 percent strikeout rate and 6.1 percent walk rate to an ERA which stood at 3.02 even after Sunday's poor performance. Tucker Davidson was recalled and will take his place in the rotation for now.
Ynoa (4-2) allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks over 4.1 innings Sunday, striking out six and taking a loss against Milwaukee. Ynoa simply couldn't get through an easy inning Sunday. He managed to escape the first two frames without allowing a run despite putting runners in scoring position. The 22-year-old righty then gave up a two-run double in the third and another RBI double in the fourth before he was removed shortly after serving up a two-run blast to Avisail Garcia in the fifth. Ynoa had allowed just four runs over his previous 24.1 frames and still owns a strong 3.02 ERA this season. He'll look for better results in his projected start at home against the Pirates next weekend.
Ynoa (4-1) picked up the win Sunday in a victory over the Phillies, giving up one earned run on four hits and one walk over six innings. The rookie right-hander dominated the Phillies, throwing 59 of his 92 pitches for strikes. He's delivered four quality starts this season and now has a 2.23 ERA and 44:9 K:BB through 40.1 innings.
