Yamamoto allowed two runs on a walk and four hits over 5.2 innings Sunday, striking out nine batters in the loss to the Rockies. He did not factor in the decision.
The 23-year-old rookie set a new career-high with the nine punchouts. The two runs he allowed came in the form of solo shots by Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon. Yamamoto lowered his ERA to 4.31 with a solid 66:26 K:BB over 64.2 frames. He'll face the Phillies at home Saturday.
Yamamoto (4-4) took the loss Tuesday as the Marlins were routed 15-1 by the Dodgers. giving up four runs on four hits and two walks over five innings while striking out two.
The right-hander's line doesn't look that bad compared to the final score, but Yamamoto gave up some loud contact -- all four of the hits he allowed went for extra bases, including homers by Will Smith and Corey Seager. He's now dropped four straight decisions, posting an 8.28 ERA and 23:8 K:BB in 25 innings over that five-start stretch, and Yamamoto could have a hard time turning things around in his next outing Sunday at Coors Field.
Yamamoto (4-3) allowed four runs on five hits with one walk and six strikeouts across six innings while taking a loss against the Mets on Wednesday.
Since starting his MLB career on a tremendous hot streak, Yamamoto has come back down to earth in his last four starts, posting an 0-3 record with an 8.55 ERA since July 21. He still has an impressive 1.04 WHIP and .175 batting average against, but Yamamoto is also 4-3 with a 4.17 ERA and 55 strikeouts in 54 innings this season. He will look to end this rough patch at home against the Dodgers on Tuesday in his next start.
Yamamoto struck out eight but allowed four runs on seven hits with no walks across six innings during a no-decision against the Twins on Thursday.
Eight strikeouts set a new season high for Yamamoto, but the offense had to come through with three runs in the ninth inning to get him off the hook for his third straight loss. The right-hander owns an unsightly 9.64 ERA in his last three outings, and overall he is 4-2 with a 3.94 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, .169 batting average against and 49 strikeouts in 48 innings this season. Yamamoto will pitch next at the Mets on Tuesday.
Yamamoto (4-2) was handed the loss Saturday versus the Diamondbacks after surrendering six runs on two hits and three walks over four innings. He had three strikeouts and hit a batter.
It's a curious stat line considering Yamamoto allowed only two hits, but one of them was a fourth-inning grand slam by Nick Ahmed. All six runs given up were scored in the fourth. The 22-year-old had a 1.59 ERA and 0.94 WHIP across his first six starts, but in his last two outings he's been charged with 11 runs over eight innings. Yamamoto will look for a rebound performance Thursday against the Twins.
Yamamoto (4-1) allowed five runs on four hits and two walks across four innings while taking the loss Sunday against the Dodgers. He struck out four.
Yamamoto was bitten by the long ball in the early going, as Max Muncy and Joc Pederson mashed two-run home runs in the first and third innings, respectively. He allowed another run before completing the fourth inning and didn't come back out for the fifth due to an elevated pitch count. Yamamoto previously hadn't allowed more than two earned runs in any start this season and will look to bounce back in his next outing at home against the Diamondbacks.
Yamamoto (4-0) allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out four across five innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Padres.
Yamamoto was gifted seven runs of support in the first two innings, and he largely held the Padres' offense in check. He started the contest shakily, allowing the first four batters he faced in the second inning to reach base, accounting for all three of the runs he allowed. While he also started the third frame by allowing two hits to the first three batters, he rebounded to retire eight of the final nine batters he faced. Yamamoto now has a 1.59 ERA and 0.94 WHIP through 34 innings. He has yet to allow a home run, masking a 4.5 BB/9.
Yamamoto will make his first start of the second half Tuesday against the Padres, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
The Marlins will pare down their rotation to five men to begin the second half, with Elieser Hernandez getting the boot to the bullpen while Yamamoto and fellow rookie Zac Gallen maintain starting spots. In Yamamoto's case, there wasn't much doubt he would stick in the rotation after allowing just four runs while striking out 30 through his first 29 big-league innings. Yamamoto's 13.5 BB% is a red flag, but his ability to keep the ball in the yard and deceive hitters with his four-pitch mix should continue to aid his run-prevention efforts.
Yamamoto didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 1-0 loss to Atlanta, giving up two hits and three walks over six scoreless innings while striking out seven.
The rookie was locked in a pitchers duel with Julio Teheran through six innings, but Yamamoto had to settle for a no-decision when he left after 94 pitches (57 strikes). One of the Marlins' young starters will lose his rotation spot to a returning Caleb Smith (hip) after the All-Star break, but it's hard to imagine it will be Yamamoto given his 1.24 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 30:15 K:BB through his first 29 big-league innings.
Yamamoto allowed four runs on three hits with four walks and four strikeouts across four innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Saturday.
The first three starts of his major-league career were outstanding, but Yamamoto came back down to earth Saturday. This was the second straight outing Yamamoto walked four hitters, and he also hit a batter. Two of those five baserunners came around to score. Yamamoto is still off to a great start in his career, though, as he is 3-0 with a 2.35 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 23 innings. He will face a major test in Atlanta next Friday, however.
Yamamoto is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Phillies.
With Caleb Smith (hip) on track to make a second minor-league rehab assignment this weekend, Yamamoto and fellow rotation newcomers Elieser Hernandez and Zac Gallen will all be extended at least one more turn. The performances of all three youngsters will likely have significant sway in determining which of the two will stick in the rotation once Smith is presumably reinstated from the 10-day injured list next week. At this point, Yamamoto may have the most job security of the trio after yielding only two runs to go with a 0.79 WHIP and 19 strikeouts in 19 innings through his first three outings in the big leagues.
Yamamoto (3-0) allowed two runs on two hits with four walks and seven strikeouts across five innings to earn the victory against the Phillies on Sunday.
The 23-year-old is off to an incredible start in his major-league career. This was the first time he allowed any runs through three starts. He's also yielded three hits or fewer in all three outings. Yamamoto is 3-0 with a 0.95 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, .115 batting average against and 19 strikeouts in 19 innings this season. He will look to keep this incredible start to his career going, as he faces the Phillies again at home Saturday.
Yamamoto (2-0) picked up the win Tuesday, scattering two hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out seven in a 6-0 victory over the Cardinals.
St. Louis hitters had even less success against Yamamoto in their second look at him than they did in his debut -- a ground-rule double by opposing pitcher Jack Flaherty marked the only time the Cards even got a runner into scoring position against the 23-year-old. Yamamoto is quickly locking down a permanent rotation spot for Miami, but he'll face a tough test in his next start Sunday in Philadelphia.
Yamamoto will stick in the Miami rotation and make his next start Tuesday against the Cardinals in St. Louis.
The Marlins' decision not to send Yamamoto back to Double-A Jacksonville immediately following his MLB debut Wednesday telegraphed the organization's intention of keeping him in the big-league rotation. With Jose Urena (back) recently joining Caleb Smith (hip) on the injured list, there will be room for both Yamamoto and Elieser Hernandez to make another turn versus the Cardinals during the upcoming week. With the rematch coming on the road, Yamamoto may be hard pressed to replicate the seven shutout innings he delivered in Miami a few days ago.
Yamamoto (1-0) picked up the win in Wednesday's 9-0 victory over the Cardinals, giving up three hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out five.
It was a dazzling MLB debut for the right-hander. Yamamoto chiefly ran into trouble in the fourth inning, as a Paul DeJong double and Paul Goldschmidt single put runners on the corners with nobody out, but the rookie calmly got Marcell Ozuna to foul out before coaxing a double play out of Yadier Molina. Yamamoto's big-league assignment is likely temporary, with neither Caleb Smith (hip) nor Jose Urena (back) expected to be out for long, but he should get at least one more turn in the rotation -- a rematch with the Cards in St. Louis on Monday.
Yamamoto was recalled from Double-A Jacksonville ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Cardinals, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Yamamoto is poised to make his major-league debut in place of Jose Urena (back), who was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. The 23-year-old right-hander has yet to pitch above Double-A, though he owns a respectable 3.58 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 64:25 K:BB in 12 starts (65.1 innings) with Jacksonville this season. Whether he sticks in the rotation beyond Wednesday's start will likely depend on the severity of Urena's injury and how well Yamamoto performs in his debut.
Yamamoto will be called up from Double-A Jacksonville to start Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Yamamoto will make his major-league debut Wednesday with Jose Urena heading to the injured list with an lower-back tightness. The 23-year-old was optioned to the minors after failing to make the Opening Day roster out of spring training, and went on to post a 3.58 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 64:25 K:BB over 12 starts with Double-A Jacksonville.
Yamamoto was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
The former Brewers farmhand only logged three starts at Double-A last year, so he was obviously going to open the year in the minors. Yamamoto has below-average fastball velocity but has been able to make it work with quality secondary offerings and deception. That may change as he faces more advanced hitters.
Yamamoto's contract was purchased from Double-A Jacksonville on Tuesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Yamamoto was added to the team's 40-man roster in order to protect the young right-hander from the Rule 5 draft. The 22-year-old, who was one of four prospects acquired from the Brewers in exchange for Christian Yelich, impressed in his first year with the Marlins, posting a combined 1.83 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 12.2 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 in 68.2 innings (13 starts) across three minor-league levels (rookie ball, High-A and Double-A).
