Michael Ynoa: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The A's signed Ynoa to a record signing bonus when he was 16 years old, and he proceeded to miss two entire seasons with arm issues in 2009 and 2011. Ynoa had his biggest workload in 2013, throwing 75.2 innings over 21 starts between Low-A and High A. He thrived at Low-A Beloit (2.14 ERA in 54.2 innings), but struggled with a 7.71 ERA over 21 innings upon his promotion to High-A Stockton. Even with the disappointing results after the promotion, Ynoa showed flashes of the talent the A's saw when they signed him by carrying a 8.6 K/9 in 2013, but his control issues (4.2 BB/9) need to be fixed if he is ever going to fulfill the hype that surrounded him when he was signed.
Inoa is expected to pitch in the Arizona Rookie League at some point in 2009 after the A's won a well-publicized bidding war for the then 16-year-old's services. He didn't pitch at all last summer after signing, but has begun to throw for the A's at their academy down in the Dominican Republic. He's considered a once-in-a-decade talent, and the sky is considered the limit if he can stay healthy. The A's recent track record of developing pitching talent played a large role in Inoa's decision.
