Gabriel Ynoa, 21 years old, is a RHP who has been in the Mets system since 2010. Since that time his stock has bounced around, mainly because the Mets system in terms of pitchers has changed a lot since 2010.
Anyway, he has pitched 5 seasons with the Mets and last year he spent considerable time at AA, so he is getting closer. Over those 5 years he has posted a 38-16 record with a 3.00 ERA while pitching 488.2 innings with a 1.097 WHIP, 6.2 K/9, 5.37 K/BB. Statistically speaking, 2012 and 2013 were his best seasons as he pitched a 2.23 and a 2.72 ERA respectively with a low level WHIP.
The following year, last year, when he moved up to St. Lucie and Binghamton he posted a 4.07 ERA over 148.0 innings with a 1.311 WHIP, 6.4 K/9 and a 4.24 K/BB. So the good news is kept up a positive K/BB ratio. He is demonstrating that he is not a top of a line starter, but that’s not really what was expected seriously Ynoa. He is now looking like an intriguing back of the rotation, long man option. In a system stocked with arms, there isn’t the need for Ynoa to be a frontline starter (although that would be nice). This year he was given a C+ ranking at Minor League Ball, and is considered to be the Mets 19th best prospect.
