Eddy Yean
Opening eyes
PWashington Nationals  R
April 1, 2020
Yean has impressed Nationals minor-league pitching coordinator Brian Holman with his instincts and approach on the mound, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports. "Eddy Yean is like a three-quarter slot pitcher," Holman said this week. "So far to this point, he has made it look pretty easy. He's got an incredible arm. He can spin a breaking ball. He's got good instincts. A good example was last year he figured out that he could throw a two-seamer and it would move. So he started kind of relying on that a lot."

Making progress with consistency
PWashington Nationals  R
April 1, 2020
Lara has made a good impression on Nationals minor-league pitching coordinator Brad Holman, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports. "His fastball is mid-90s mph and just once and a while he will like overthrow it a tick and catch a little misfire and yank it left," Holman said this week. "He's just learning how to make adjustments and how to get back on track when he's off. But he makes a lot of really good pitches, too. It's (all about) just becoming more consistent for him and, of course, he is just a baby. He just turned 17."
