2023 Player Outlook

2023 Recap: Yamamoto has thrown at least 160 IP in three straight seasons, while putting forth 15+ wins and a sub-2.00 ERA in each of those seasons. He’s over a strikeout per inning for his career, and he has stuff that should translate well to the MLB. Yamamoto will have a great offense backing him, and he’s only 25 years old, not turning 26 until August of 2024. 

2024 Outlook: The right-hander has solid velocity on his fastball, with a splitter and curveball that will make batters look silly. He’ll need to adjust to the pitching schedule in the MLB, and his ADP has skyrocketed since signing with the Dodgers. He's being drafted routinely inside the top 20 starters, and while he certainly has the makings of a fantasy ace, but risk-averse drafters may be wary of banking their fantasy rotation on a 25-year-old who has yet to pitch in the MLB. There's some risk, sure, but the potential reward far outweighs that, and he could prove to be a difference maker in year 1.
