Huascar Ynoa appeared in a game yesterday for the first time since he broke his hand in Milwaukee after punching the dugout on May 16th. Unfortunately, it didn’t go exactly as planned. Ynoa gave up six earned runs for High-A Rome yesterday on eight hits over two innings.
In his first rehab start Sunday at High-A Rome, #Braves' Huascar Ynoa allowed eight hits and six runs (all earned) in two innings, with one walk and two strikeouts. 51 pitches/35 strikes.

The six earned runs are tied with the most runs he’s given up all season, when he allowed six to cross the plate in Chicago against the Cubs, thanks to three home runs. However, there is good news. There were no reports of any setbacks, which is oftentimes all that you’re really hoping for, especially in a player’s first game back. If that continues to be the case, we should see Ynoa back in Atlanta in a couple of weeks.
