  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Demoted after rough start

    Atlanta optioned Ynoa to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

    The demotion is an unwelcome development for fantasy managers hoping to get a two-start week out of Ynoa, who took the hill for Atlanta's series opener in Los Angeles on Monday. Unfortunately, the right-hander labored through 3.2 innings, giving up five runs on four hits and four walks en route to taking his second loss in as many starts this season. Since opening the 2021 campaign with a 2.23 ERA and 0.89 WHIP through his first seven starts and then being shut down for an extended period with a broken hand, Ynoa hasn't re-emerged as a reliable rotation option for Atlanta. The reigning World Series champions had recently added Bryce Elder to the mix as a sixth starter, so Atlanta will likely just condense to a five-man rotation now that Ynoa is headed to the minors.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Knocked around by Dodgers

    Ynoa (0-2) completed 3.2 innings against the Dodgers on Monday, allowing five runs on four hits and four walks while striking out four. He was charged with the loss.

    The right-hander struggled with his control in the contest, issuing four walks and throwing only 40 of 75 pitches for strikes. When he did get the ball over the plate, the Dodgers largely capitalized, knocking a pair of extra-base hits against him, including a Freddie Freeman solo homer in the first inning. Ynoa showed some promise with a 4.05 ERA and 100:25 K:BB last season, but he hasn't pitched well in 2022, allowing 10 earned runs and posting an 8:6 K:BB across 6.2 frames. He'll try to turn things around in his next start, which is tentatively slated to come at home against Miami on Sunday.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Start pushed back

    Ynoa is now scheduled to start Monday's game against the Dodgers, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Ynoa was initially slated to start Sunday's series finale, but he'll instead get an extra day of rest after Bryce Elder was pushed up in the rotation to start against San Diego. Ynoa will attempt to bounce back after he allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four in three innings to take the loss Monday against the Nationals.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Hit hard in Monday's loss

    Ynoa (0-1) took the loss in Monday's 11-2 rout at the hands of the Nationals, coughing up five runs on seven hits and two walks over three innings. He struck out four.

    The young right-hander was able to escape trouble in the first two innings, but things fell apart for Ynoa in the third. He threw 41 of 72 pitches for strikes before getting the hook, but the Atlanta bullpen didn't have any more success than he did. Ynoa will look to rebound in his next start, scheduled for Sunday in San Diego.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Favorite for rotation spot

    Ynoa is a favorite to land a rotation spot to begin the season, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    The status of Ynoa's health was unclear when he reported to camp after he suffered from shoulder inflammation during the postseason. However, he threw three scoreless innings in a Grapefruit League appearance against the Twins on Tuesday, seemingly answering any short-term concerns. Across 91 innings in 2021, Ynoa showed promise by maintaining a 4.05 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 100:25 K:BB.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Looks healthy Tuesday

    Ynoa gave up two hits over three scoreless innings in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins. He didn't walk or strike out a batter.

    The right-hander dealt with injuries in the second half of last season, including shoulder inflammation during the playoffs, but Ynoa looked good in his first appearance this spring. He entered the game in the fourth inning, following Max Fried, and faced a Minnesota squad that trotted out most of its Opening Day lineup. Ynoa could be in the mix for a rotation spot if he proves he's healthy in camp, but the 23-year-old's lack of a third pitch and potential durability issues might make him a better fit in the bullpen.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Removed from NCLS roster

    Ynoa (shoulder) was removed from Atlanta's roster for the NLCS on Wednesday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Ynoa was scratched from starting Game 4 against the Dodgers on Wednesday due to shoulder inflammation, and Atlanta has now received approval to remove him from the NLCS roster He won't be eligible to pitch in the World Series if Atlanta advances. Dylan Lee was added to the roster in a corresponding move.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Scratched with shoulder issue

    Ynoa was scratched from starting Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Wednesday due to right shoulder inflammation, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander was announced as the starter for Atlanta's bullpen game earlier Wednesday, but Jesse Chavez will instead receive the nod in Game 4. Ynoa's only work in the playoffs so far was a one-inning relief appearance against Milwaukee, and the injury will now leave Atlanta shorthanded for the bullpen game. It's unclear if the team is considering removing Ynoa from the NLCS roster, which would also make him unavailable for the World Series should Atlanta advance.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: First pitcher for bullpen game

    Ynoa is listed as Atlanta's starting pitcher Wednesday for what's expected to be a bullpen day in Game 4 of the NLCS matchup with the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 23-year-old will move back to the rotation after he tossed one inning in relief during Atlanta's four-game series victory over the Brewers in the NLDS, but manager Brian Snitker likely won't let Ynoa work deep into Wednesday's contest. Because he struggled in a traditional starting role over the final six weeks of the regular season upon returning from a fractured hand in mid-August, Ynoa could be capped at 2-to-3 innings while Atlanta looks to maximize his results. Drew Smyly and A.J. Minter are candidates to cover multiple frames behind Ynoa.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: No-decision Monday

    Ynoa didn't factor into the decision Monday against Arizona after allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two across four innings.

    Ynoa was far from being at his best Monday and was removed before the beginning of the fifth after a 75-pitch outing. The 23-year-old right-hander remains winless since he returned from the injured list Aug. 17, going 0-3 but with a 3.93 ERA across 36.2 innings in that span.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Strikes out eight in 4.2 innings

    Ynoa allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks with eight strikeouts through 4.2 innings, taking a no-decision in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Rockies.

    Ynoa allowed just two singles through his first four innings, but he coughed up two more hits, a sac bunt and a pair of walks in a fifth inning that saw the right-hander leave with the bases loaded. Fortunately, Jacob Webb saved the 23-year-old's line by escaping the inning unscathed. Even with the heroics from Webb, two tough streaks persist for Ynoa. The pitcher has allowed multiple earned runs in five straight starts and has lost four straight decisions. He'll look to put an end to those runs in his next start, which figures to be Monday against the Diamondbacks.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Strikes out seven in no-decision

    Ynoa allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Thursday.

    His first inning was a bit of a mess -- Ynoa walked the first batter he faced and then allowed back-to-back hits to Juan Soto and Josh Bell. The right-hander was dominant the rest of the way, allowing just one base knock (a single) over his final four frames. Atlanta's bullpen briefly let the lead slip away, meaning Ynoa is still winless since he returned from the injured list. He projects for a home start against the Rockies next week, which looks like a great spot for Ynoa to finally get back in the win column.
