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.

2019
DSL:  9-1-0, 2.39 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 64.0 IP, 1.1 BB/9, 8.3 K/9

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.
