Draws praise for work ethic

April 4, 2020
Garcia spent the spring working on his hitting mechanics to use his lower half more and drive the ball, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports. "That's how we started it the first day," Nationals minor-league hitting coordinator Troy Gingrich said this week. "We went in there and compared him [to Juan Soto's swing], because he loves Juan obviously. So we threw him up there next to Juan and he could see the difference in how Juan uses his lower half compared to how [García] uses his lower half. He focused hard on this."

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

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."
