BRAZOBAN REACHES BIG LEAGUES

BRAZOBAN REACHES BIG LEAGUES

2018 ‘Stormers Makes Debut with Marlins

At the age of 32, Huascar Brazoban has finally reached the pinnacle.

The member of the 2018 Lancaster Barnstormers bullpen made his debut with the Miami Marlins on Sunday, pitching a scoreless inning in Pittsburgh against the Pirates.  He was awarded a hold.

Brazoban becomes the 14th one-time Barnstormer to advance to the big leagues following his time in Lancaster and the seventh to make it for the first time.  The most recent, prior to Brazoban, was right-hander Connor Overton who debuted with Toronto late in 2021.

The hard throwing right-hander signed with Colorado in 2012 and got as high as Class AA Hartford in 2017.  The following season, he came to Lancaster and was 2-4 with four saves and a 1.99 ERA.  Brazoban allowed 39 hits and struck out 41 batters in 40.2 innings.

He was expected to return to Lancaster in 2019, but his visa did not clear until the season was nearly over.  Prior to the 2021 season, the Barnstormers traded his rights, along with those of infielder Michael Martinez, to High Point.  He appeared in 16 games with the Rockers last season, posting a 1-1 record and 2.81 ERA.

This winter, he joined the Marlins and opened the season with Class AAA Jacksonville.  In 27 appearances with the Jumbo Shrimp, he had allowed 32 hits and 16 walks in 45.1 innings while striking out 59.  His ERA was 3.18.
