Ynoa, the child of two accomplished ballplayers, is a towering, flame throwing teenager who already had a mid-90s fastball and an advanced changeup when he was scooped up by the Athletics for a $4.25M during 2008's IFA season.

He's hit more than his fair share of obstacles since then, and has spent as much time in operating rooms as he has on the mound. Already a veteran of Tommy John surgery before his twentieth birthday, Ynoa should finally be back on the mound in 2012 trying to work his way back to that once well-deserved phenom-hood. Expect some rehab in the Dominican and/or extended spring training, followed by a hopefully full season on assignment with the A's A-level team in Vermont. Unless he puts in more than a full season or two without improvement, it's impossible to give up on Ynoa: his potential really is (was?) that high.

News and Notes

Michael Ynoa's comeback is progressing as well as the A's hoped. He was just named to the Futures Game roster on the strength of a powerful showing at A-level Beloit, where he posted a 2.76 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 16 starts (most of them short ones.) His command is still developing, but his body seems back on track, at least, and he shouldn't be forgotten about.
