Maya to pitch Friday in GCL game

Nats pitcher Yunesky Maya is scheduled to pitch two to three innings Friday for the GCL Nationals, according to pitching coordinator Spin Williams.

Maya, who pitched for Cuba in the 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classics, threw 30 pitches in two innings earlier and Williams says Maya "has done everything pretty good. His velocity is 88 to 90 MPH and he has two breaking balls and a straight change."

If everything goes well on Friday, Maya will have one more game before getting a shot in Hagerstown or Woodbridge (Potomac).
