Maya and Suarez could sign in January
As mentioned in last week's Esquina, Cuban pitchers Deinys Suarez and Yuniesky Maya threw for several scouts in the Dominican Republic last week. Since then, more details have emerged about the workout.
One scout said Maya, 28, threw in the 88-92 mph range, much like he did in the World Baseball Classic this year when he had a 1.23 ERA in 7 1/3 innings.
"That's what he normally pitches," said Maya's agent Bart Hernandez. "His command was great. He has three plus quality pitches and he throws them for strikes."
