2021 Fantasy Outlook
Ynoa appeared in his second season of big-league action in 2020, though the young right-hander struggled mightily in limited appearances. He started five of his nine appearances, finishing with a 5.82 ERA and 1.66 WHIP to go along with a 17:13 K:BB over 21.2 innings. He also posted an unappealing 4.90 FIP and a walk percentage of 13. It's clear the 22-year-old is still trying to find consistency as far as his command is concerned, though he does have impressive stuff. Ynoa's fastball sits in the upper 90's, and he also features a slider as his No. 2 pitch to go along with a changeup that he doesn't throw nearly as often. He'll be in the conversation to battle for a rotation spot with Atlanta heading into the 2021 campaign, but the Braves have an abundance of young talented arms. Ynoa could find himself in a relief role, at least in the early going. Read Past Outlooks

Two-way hero in Tuesday's win
PAtlanta Braves
May 4, 2021
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.
ANALYSIS
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.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Signed as a 16-year-old out of the Dominican Republic for $800,000, Ynoa sparkled in the Gulf Coast rookie league. Ynoa, the younger brother of Michael Ynoa, had a 3.18 ERA and 9.0 K/9 with good control (2.1 BB/9). He has a low-90s fastball that should improve as he grows and is seen as having strong secondary pitches. He's a prospect who could improve rapidly in 2017.
