December 5, 2019
Ynoa signed a contract with the Tokyo Swallows on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Ynoa struggled to a 5.61 ERA with a 67:26 K:BB over 110.2 innings a season ago with the Orioles, so he'll aim to resurrect his career in Tokyo. If he manages to perform well, there's certainly the possibility that he could return to Major League Baseball.

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.
