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

June 7, 2021
Atlanta doesn't anticipate Ynoa (hand) to return from the 60-day injured list until the second half of August, MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
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.

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.
