Beckett's was caused by his curve also. It happens most when pitchers switch balls (college to pro, minors to majors, Japan to US) I think Cuba still uses the horse hide ball so Maya's problem might simply be a case of adjusting to the slicker cow hide ball.

I was thinking about Beckett as well.  Your explanation certainly sounds plausible, I was unaware that they still used horse hide.
