According to Globedia.com the Mets and White Sox are the front-runners to sign 27–year-old Cuban RHP Yuniesky Maya. We don’t know much about these foreign imports and, just like with Ryota Igarashi, information is hard to come by.

Matt Cerrone of Metsblog described Maya as “major-league ready, mature, and has a low-90s fastball with a decent change-up and slurve… he is known for being a bit of a bulldog, pitching inside, challenging hitters.”

According to the Baseball Reference Bullpen Maya Cuba’s top right-handed hurler in 2008-2009. If you read closely it appears Maya would be better suited out of the bullpen.

  1. Maya was a top notch pitcher in Cuba…better than Chapman…..so is Yadel Marti….
    those two and Leslie Anderson should land jobs at MLB very very soon, if not during the season or in Sept….Maya is an awesome reliever, but can also start..he won 13 games in 2009 back in the Cuban series….13 games, this is in a 90 games season….
