Minnesota Twins Prospect Passes Away in Car Accident


Minnesota Twins pitching prospect, and Venezuelan native,  Yorman Landa has tragically passed away in a car accident late last night.

Mike Bernardino of the Pioneer Press had the details of the accident:

“Landa was the only fatality among the four or perhaps five occupants in the car, according to his sources,” wrote Benardino. “It’s believed Landa was in the passenger seat of a car driven by his father. No other details of the accident have been made available, though it is noted the weather conditions were rainy.”

The Twins organization released a statement on the incident.

“The Minnesota Twins are deeply saddened by the heartbreaking loss of Yorman Landa early this morning in Venezuela,” said Twins Executive Derek Falvey. “On behalf of the entire baseball community, we send our sincerest condolences to the Landa family as well as Yorman’s many friends, coaches and teammates.”

Best wishes go out to Yorman’s family and teammates.
