Ynoa has made his last two appearances with the Orioles as a reliever, giving up two runs on two hits across two innings.
Ynoa matched his season high with six innings when he was summoned for spot start against the Yankees on Aug. 12, but aside from working deep into the contest, there weren't many positive takeaways from the outing. He allowed four home runs -- and seven runs in total -- during the start, which wasn't enough for him to stick in the rotation over Ty Blach. Both of the runs Ynoa has surrendered since returning to the bullpen have come via the long ball, which has been a consistent problem no matter how the Orioles have deployed him this season.
Ynoa (1-7) allowed seven runs on seven hits with one walk and three strikeouts across six innings while taking a loss in the first game of a doubleheader against the Yankees on Monday.
The right-hander came into Monday having allowed just three homers in his last 10 outings, but the Bronx Bombers got to him in the first game of a doubleheader. Ynoa had yielded just four runs in his last 14.2 innings before Monday, but with this performance, the 26-year-old's ERA shot up almost half a run. He owns a 5.93 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 50 strikeouts in 82 innings this season. Ynoa will look to rebound in his next start Sunday at the Red Sox.

Ynoa drew a start in his most recent appearance as well -- also against the Yankees -- and surrendered three earned runs across 4.2 innings while striking out two. Despite the way he's currently being utilized, Ynoa has made the majority of his appearances out of the bullpen this season, racking up a 5.57 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 47 strikeouts across 76 innings.
Ynoa allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits while striking out two over 4.2 innings Monday against the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.
Ynoa gave up a solo homer in the second inning, followed by three runs in the fifth, but he was able to hang around and help his club by hurling nearly five full frames. He's expected to return to a relief role following Monday night's outing.
Ynoa is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Yankees, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Though he'll be making his first start since June 30, Ynoa isn't expected to work deep into the outing with the Orioles treating the series opener as a bullpen game. Since being bumped from the rotation just over a month ago, Ynoa has posted a 3.92 ERA and 1.16 WHIP across eight relief appearances spanning 20.2 innings. He hasn't worked more than three innings or tossed more than 34 pitches since July 17.
