They are brothers. So i assume they were taught to pitch by the same people.


Yep, sure are. I don't know too many more Cuban pitchers besides Contreras who isn't really like that but I'd be curious if it were common in Cuban baseball to pitch like that or if they're an exception there just as much as they are here.

Great thanks.

I was worried when his fastball was all of 80 mph. Again, I'd never seen him pitch before, and if that is normal, then great. He did look loose and comfortable, that's for sure.

Here's hoping for a great season!

He's one of the loosest, most comfortable looking pitchers you'll see!

Remember when he was an electric youngster striking out all those Braves in 1997?

...What the heck happened?

But he became more of a pitcher now. Much more effective this way.
