Ynoa tossed 6.2 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out 11.
The 11 whiffs tied his career high, and the 21-year-old took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before fading. Ynoa is a curious case -- he started the season at High-A and has zoomed through the Atlanta system to throw three innings in the big-league bullpen, but he hasn't dominated at any level. Whatever the club's coaches and evaluators have been seeing to warrant that treatment showed up on the mound Monday, however.
