Another young Dominican pitcher is hoping to have similar success in the Rangers system. Johan Yan had a breakthrough year last in AA. He pitched some as a closer and some as a starter. Yan is still developing as a pitcher, so the Rangers are not sure where he will land in the big leagues. But either as a starter or closure, the Rangers think he will be their next big time Dominican pitcher, to go along with Ogando and Neftali Feliz, just to name two.
Ogando and Yan are both from the famed city of San Pedro de Macoris. Feliz is from Azua, Dominican Republic.
