Jordan Yamamoto
23-Year-Old PitcherSP
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

Yields first MLB runs in win
PMiami Marlins
June 23, 2019
Yamamoto (3-0) allowed two runs on two hits with four walks and seven strikeouts across five innings to earn the victory against the Phillies on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The 23-year-old is off to an incredible start in his major-league career. This was the first time he allowed any runs through three starts. He's also yielded three hits or fewer in all three outings. Yamamoto is 3-0 with a 0.95 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, .115 batting average against and 19 strikeouts in 19 innings this season. He will look to keep this incredible start to his career going, as he faces the Phillies again at home Saturday.
