Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 50 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 45 | Overall: 50

Ynoa signed with the Twins for $800,000 back in July 2014 and enjoyed some early success at the rookie levels, pitching well in that system in the Dominican Summer League in 2015 and then the Gulf Coast League in the United States the following summer. His move up to the Appalachian League was a bit more uneven, and he was traded to the Braves in July 2017 in the Jaime Garcia deal. Ynoa fared well across two levels of full-season Class A ball in his organizational debut, earning a spot on the 40-man roster.

Ynoa has shown an ability to make adjustments to his delivery that has him pointing in the right direction. He's more on line and direct and is finishing consistently downhill now, rather than yanking to the glove side as he does when he gets out of sync. That's led to better command of his 93-95 mph fastball, with some feeling he'll eventually get to average overall command and control. His breaking ball gets caught in between the curve and slider, with a true slider perhaps fitting better with his profile. He has good feel for his average changeup.

Big and strong, Ynoa took a nice step in the right direction during his full-season and Braves organization debut. He could make another leap if he can continue to streamline his delivery and refine his command.
