  • Dodgers' Yoshinobu Yamamoto: Punches out six in no-decision

    Yamamoto did not factor into the decision Friday against San Diego, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk over five innings. He struck out six.

    Yamamoto looked to be in for another rough outing against the Padres after allowing a 390-foot home run to Manny Machado in the first inning. However, the Dodgers starter settled in over his next four innings, striking out four and yielding another run on a solo shot by Ha-Seong Kim. The two homers allowed Friday night were the first of Yamamoto's rookie campaign as he sports a 4.50 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 21:4 K:BB over 16 innings. His next start is scheduled to come against the Nationals at home.

  • Dodgers' Yoshinobu Yamamoto: Dominant after first inning

    Yamamoto (1-1) pitched five scoreless innings in a win against the Cubs on Saturday, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out eight.

    Yamamoto got into trouble right off the bat, surrendering two hits and a walk to the first three batters he faced. However, the right-hander then proceeded to strike out the side to work his way out of the hole before allowing just one more hit in the contest. Yamamoto has now hurled 10 scoreless innings over his last two starts after getting knocked around in his first outing. He's given up just five hits over that stretch to go along with a 13:2 K:BB.

  • Dodgers' Yoshinobu Yamamoto: Bounces back in second start

    Yamamoto pitched five scoreless frames in a no-decision in Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to St. Louis, allowing two hits and no walks while striking out five batters.

    Yamamoto faltered in his MLB regular-season debut against the Padres in South Korea on March 21, allowing five earned runs and lasting just one inning. His second outing went in the complete opposite direction, as the Japanese hurler struck out the side in a perfect first frame and gave up just two baserunners over five standout innings. Yamamoto may have gone deeper if not for a rare Dodger Stadium rain delay, though he did return to the contest following the 35-minute interruption. Fantasy managers who invested in Yamamoto in fantasy drafts should feel much better after this performance, and given how good he looked Saturday, it's quite possible that the right-hander's worst start of the year is already behind him.

  • Dodgers' Yoshinobu Yamamoto: Pitching third in first home series

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Yamamoto will start the third game of the team's initial home series against St. Louis, which begins Thursday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Yamamoto got the start in the second game of the Dodgers' season-opening two-game set in South Korea against the Padres, following Tyler Glasnow in the rotation. While Glasnow will again take the mound for the team's home opener Thursday, he'll be followed by Bobby Miller in the second game of the series before Yamamoto gets the ball Saturday in Game 3. Yamamoto struggled in his MLB debut, lasting just one inning and giving up five earned runs, though it's not clear if that had anything to do with him moving behind Miller for Los Angeles' first home set.

  • Dodgers' Yoshinobu Yamamoto: Struggles in MLB debut

    Yamamoto (0-1) took the loss to the Padres on Thursday in the second game of the Seoul Series. He allowed five runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two over one inning.

    The right-hander also hit a batter and uncorked a wild pitch in a forgettable big-league debut. He threw 43 pitches and only 23 of them found the strike zone. Signed in the offseason to the longest and most lucrative contract for a pitcher in MLB history, Yamamoto will face immense pressure to perform right away in his first season stateside. There will be better days ahead, but Thursday offered a harsh reminder that he's facing a different level of competition and the transition to Major League Baseball is often difficult.
