Debut Details
August 13, in a 3-2 11-inning win against the San Diego Padres. The last of six pitchers on the night, Ynoa got the win with one perfect inning in which he struck out one. Of 13 pitches, nine were for strikes. Coming on to start the top of the 11th in relief of Erik Goeddel, he got the first batter he faced, Christian Betancourt, to pop out to second base. Nick Noonan then flew out to left field before pinch-hitter Adam Rosales struck out swinging. When the Mets’ Neil Walker scored with one out in the bottom of the 11th on a fielder’s choice by Wilmer Flores, Ynoa was the late-night pitcher of record for the W.

Player Notes
Signed as a free agent by the Mets just two days after his 17th birthday, Ynoa is a control artist who has consistently had one of the lowest walks-to-innings-pitched ratio in the system. Partly as a result of that constantly being over the plate, his hits-to-innings-pitched is not quite as flashy but he gets the job done. In 2015 at Binghamton (Double-A), he was 9-9 with a 4.14 ERA in 25 games, striking out 82 while walking just 31 in 152.1 IP, allowing 157 hits, after combining to go 11-4 with a 4.07 ERA in 25 starts between Binghamton and St. Lucie (High A) in 2014, striking out 106 while walking just 25 in 148 innings, but allowing 169 hits. His best season came in his first full summer at Savannah (Class A) in 2013 when he went 15-4 with a 2.72 ERA in 22 starts, striking out 106 and walking just 16 in 135.2 IP, and giving up just 123 hits. He throws a fastball in the low 90s, a changeup and a slider.
