Ynoa (1-6) picked up the win in Wednesday's 9-2 victory over the Nationals, giving up one run on two hits over 4.1 innings of relief. He struck out two.
ANALYSIS
Aaron Brooks got the start, but he lasted only 2.2 innings and 56 pitches as he continues to get stretched out. That left Ynoa to handle a bulk reliever role and get rewarded when the O's offense caught fire late in the game. The right-hander's 6.31 ERA and 38:18 K:BB through 61.1 innings make him a fantasy afterthought regardless of how he gets deployed, however.

Stat Review
How does Gabriel Ynoa compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against this season's data (min 20 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2015
Ynoa was shipped to Baltimore from the Mets shortly before the start of spring training last year to add some organizational pitching depth with Chris Tillman's status for the start of the season in question. However, he ultimately did not make the Opening Day roster and struggled at the outset of the season at Triple-A Norfolk, notching a 6.65 ERA through his first five outings at that level. The bulk of his season was spent shuttling between the Norfolk rotation and the O's bullpen and he ended the year with a 4.15 ERA along with a 1.36 WHIP at the big-league level. There are a few openings in the rotation, and Ynoa showed enough over his limited sample last season to where he'll have a shot this spring to lock down a No. 4 or No. 5 role. However, expectations should be tempered from a fantasy standpoint considering his shaky home-run rate (1.3 HR/9) and low strikeout rate (6.8 K/9).
Ynoa got his first taste of the upper levels of the minors when he made his Triple-A debut to kick off the 2016 season. His time there mostly mirrored his experience at the lower levels -- nothing overpowering with relatively few strikeouts and walks, but effective enough to keep the ball in the yard and to keep his ERA at a respectable 3.97. When he got his chance in the majors later in the season, the 23-year-old uncharacteristically lost control as he yielded 3.4 BB/9, but he was also done in by bad luck to the point that his FIP (2.60) was nearly four runs lower than his ERA (6.38). Though he looked much more comfortable as a starter, he was used mostly out of the bullpen in the big leagues (10 appearances, three starts). The righty would be much more valuable to owners out of the rotation, but he'll have to compete for a spot at the back end in spring training even after being dealt to the Orioles in February.
When Ynoa is on the mound, one thing is for certain; he's going to attack the strike zone. He's averaged a mere 1.2 BB/9 in his five professional seasons. The formula proved successful at the Low-A level in 2013, earning him a promotion to High-A St. Lucie to begin the 2014 campaign. Eventually, Ynoa made the jump to the Double-A level as a 21-year-old, and while the results weren't great (4.21 ERA, 1.29 WHIP), he maintained a low walk rate (1.6 BB/9) and was very good away from Binghamton's home park (2.72 ERA road ERA). His strikeout rate dropped signficantly with the move up (from 7.0 K/9 to just 5.7 K/9), and his flyball tendencies caught up with him a bit (nine homers in 66.1 innings with Binghamton), but he showed enough to convince the Mets he warranted protection from the Rule 5 draft. Ynoa may struggle upon his promotion to the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League in 2015, though the Mets could always have him bypass the Triple-A level and just give him a long-relief role with the big club.
