News: Nationals Sign Yuneski Maya

According to Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes, the Nationals have reached an agreement with Cuban RHP Yuneski Maya.

According to Rojas, Maya will undergo a physical for the Nationals next week.

Maya became a free agent last month and had spent time working out at the Mets baseball academy over the winter.

Last December, Jorge Arangure of ESPN.com quoted a scout who watched Maya as saying he threw in the 88–92 mph range, while sporting a fastball, two-seamer, a slider, curveball and a changeup.
