|Born: May 21, 2000
Signed: Int’l Free Agent, 2018, Pittsburgh Pirates
How Acquired: International Free Agent
WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Umana was a top pitching prospect in Nicaragua when the Pirates signed him. He’s not a big guy and throws his fastball about 88-89 mph, but he has a good curve and change.
Umana made 13 starts in the DSL and was one of two pitchers to win more than seven games. He didn’t dominate, but opponents had only a .283 OBP against him.
Umana will probably need to add some velocity to get far as a prospect. The Pirates brought him to the US for 2021.
