2019 Fantasy Outlook
Acquired by the Marlins in the Christian Yelich trade, Yamamoto was limited by injuries to just 13 starts. He recorded excellent numbers in those starts, finishing with a 1.83 ERA, 32.4 K% and 5.3 BB%. While three of those starts did come in a rehab stint at the rookie-league level, he was similarly effective at High-A Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville. The 22-year-old's incredible numbers don't quite line up with his scouting reports, as his fastball sits in the high 80s, which may cap his ceiling as a back-end starter despite above-average command and a trio of interesting secondaries (curveball, slider and changeup). Those secondaries have fooled low-level hitters so far but may not be enough against more advanced hitters. Yamamoto has made just three starts at Double-A so far, but his addition to the 40-man roster in November could lead to his first callup at some point this season. Read Past Outlooks

Whiffs career high in no-decision
PMiami Marlins
August 18, 2019
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
