Ynoa (hand) will begin a rehab assignment Sunday with a to-be-determined minor-league affiliate, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Ynoa was scheduled to begin his rehab assignment Tuesday but instead threw a simulated game since the game was postponed. The right-hander will continue buidling up as a starter on the rehab stint, but Atlanta could also change course and bring him back sooner as a reliever.
Ynoa (hand) threw a simulated game Tuesday after his scheduled Tuesday rehab outing was postponed because of rain, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. He's now slated to make a rehab outing Saturday.
While the switch to a simulated game shouldn't make a huge difference as far as getting Ynoa's arm built up, pushing back the rehab outing could ultimately delay his activation from the 60-day IL. The right-hander will likely require multiple outings in the minors before being reinstated, so he appears to be on track for a mid-to-late August return to the Atlanta rotation, assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks.
Ynoa (hand) tossed 30 pitches in live batting practice before Thursday's game and is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, Paul Casella of MLB.com reports.
Atlanta has yet to announce which affiliate the right-hander will be assigned to or what his workload might be Thursday, but Ynoa seems firmly on pace to rejoin the big-league staff in August. Given his 3.02 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 50:11 K:BB through 44.2 innings prior to his injury, the 23-year-old will probably rejoin the rotation immediately, but a long relief role could allow Atlanta to activate him from the IL a little earlier rather than getting him fully stretched out first.
Ynoa (hand) will throw live batting practice this week and pitch in a Florida Complex League game next week, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Ynoa continues to make steady progress as he works his way back from the fractured hand he suffered after punching a bench in mid-May. Given the length of his absence, he'll likely need to pitch in multiple rehab games; the team is targeting a return in the second half of August.
Ynoa (hand) will throw off a mound in the next few days, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Ynoa was off to a brilliant start this season, posting a 3.02 ERA in 44.2 innings of work before punching a bench and fracturing his hand in mid-May. He was originally expected to miss at least two months, a period which has nearly elapsed. He won't be back in game action any time soon and doesn't have a clear updated timeline, but he's at least taking steps in the right direction.
Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday that Ynoa (hand) has resumed playing catch and taking part in long-toss throwing, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
The 23-year-old remains without a clear timeline for a return after fracturing his pitching hand May 17, but his ability to begin a throwing program offers hope that he'll be ready to come off the 60-day injured list at some point in August. Before suffering the untimely injury, Ynoa had surprisingly emerged as one of the more reliable members of the Atlanta rotation. Over his eight starts, Ynoa compiled a 3.09 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 50:11 K:BB in 43.2 innings.
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.
Ynoa (3-1) picked up the win Tuesday in a 6-1 victory over the Nationals, giving up one unearned run on four hits and two walks over seven innings. He struck out four.
The rookie right-hander not only stymied the Nats' bats over 96 pitches (63 strikes), he supplied most of the offense for Atlanta with a grand slam in the sixth inning off Tanner Rainey, Ynoa's second homer of the year. He's delivered three quality starts already this season, and Ynoa will take a sparkling 2.36 ERA and 38:8 K:BB through 34.1 innings into his next outing.
Ynoa (2-1) picked up the win in Wednesday's 10-0 rout of the Cubs, allowing four hits and two walks over 5.1 scoreless innings. He struck out nine.
Inefficiency kept Ynoa from recording his third quality start of the season, as he needed 101 pitches (66 strikes) to record 16 outs, but it was an impressive performance from the 22-year-old nonetheless. He even aided his own cause by going 2-for-3 at the plate with his first career homer. Ynoa will take a 2.96 ERA and stunning 34:6 K:BB through 27.1 innings into his next outing.
Ynoa (1-1) picked up the win in Friday's 5-4 victory over the Diamondbacks, giving up two runs on two hits and a walk over six innings while striking out five.
The right-hander tossed 52 of 82 pitches for strikes in his second quality start of the season, with his only real mistake resulting in a Carson Kelly two-run shot in the fifth inning. Ynoa is helping stabilize a battered Atlanta rotation, and he'll take a 3.68 ERA and sharp 25:4 K:BB through 22 innings into his next outing Wednesday at home against the Cubs.
Ynoa (0-1) gave up six runs on seven hits and a walk while fanning five across four innings to take the loss Saturday against the Cubs.
Ynoa had only allowed one run across 12 innings over his first three appearances this season, but he was unable to repeat those results against a Chicago offense that finally caught fire following an underwhelming start to the campaign. Ynoa still owns an excellent 20:3 K:BB through 16 innings in 2021 and will try to bounce back when he takes the mound next week against the Diamondbacks at home.
Ynoa didn't factor into the decision in Monday's loss to the Marlins after allowing one run on three hits and a walk over six innings while striking out 10.
The right-hander got taken deep by Adam Duvall in the second inning but otherwise dominated the Miami offense, tossing 55 of 82 pitches for strikes and leaving the game with a 2-1 lead. Ynoa appears to be locking down a rotation spot for Atlanta, at least until Mike Soroka (Achilles/shoulder) is ready to return, and he'll take a 0.75 ERA and 15:2 K:BB through 12 innings into his next outing, set for Saturday on the road against the Cubs.
Ynoa is scheduled to start Monday's series opener with the Marlins, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Ynoa will surprisingly get the nod over No. 1 starter Max Fried for the series opener, even though both pitchers are on similar rest schedules after having each pitched one half of the April 7 doubleheader against the Nationals. Atlanta may just have wanted to build in an extra day of rest for Fried after he struggled in that outing while also picking up a lower right leg injury, whereas Ynoa struck out five over five shutout innings in his start against Washington. Ynoa now tentatively lines up for two starts during the upcoming week, as he'll likely get the ball Saturday in Chicago against the Cubs following Monday's turn.
Ynoa didn't factor into the decision during the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader, allowing two hits and a walk while striking out five over five scoreless innings as Atlanta downed the Nationals 2-0.
The young right-hander was both dominant and efficient, needing 68 pitches (44 strikes) to record 15 outs, but with Stephen Strasburg also tossing a gem for the Nats, Ynoa wasn't able to secure a win. Bryse Wilson was considered the likely candidate to fill the No. 5 starter role for Atlanta when the team needs one later this month, but Ynoa's impressive performance may have moved him to the front of the line instead. That assignment may now carry a lot more fantasy value as well in the wake of the news that Mike Soroka's return from a torn Achilles will be delayed by shoulder soreness.
Ynoa is expected to start Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader at Washington, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Manager Brian Snitker named the 22-year-old the probable starter for Wednesday's matinee but wouldn't make an official confirmation. Ynoa may be utilized as an opener for a bullpen game with Max Fried starting the matinee for Atlanta.
Ynoa is expected to begin the season as a member of the Atlanta bullpen, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Atlanta has yet to name a fifth starter, and manager Brian Snitker appears content to wait on that decision until the club's sixth game of the season April 7 in Washington, where the club wraps up a stretch of five games in five days. Though Ynoa will be available in relief for Atlanta's first five contests, O'Brien notes that the right-hander is the prime candidate to serve as the opener April 7 in what will likely be a bullpen game. Ynoa could stake his claim to a more permanent rotation spot if he makes a strong impression against the Nationals.
