Brummett Commanding Attention in Venezuela

Righty hurler Tyson Brummett, who pitched with the Double-A Reading Phillies and Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs in 2011, has been a star on the mound for the Tiburones de La Guaira in the Venezuelan Winter League down the stretch. Recently, the UCLA product locked down a win that clinched a trip to the league championship series. In the outing, Brummett struck out nine batter while allowing just 1 run on 5 hits in 6 innings. The Tiburones will face off with the Tigres de Aragua in the best-of-seven title series.

Among Brummett’s K victims was former Philadelphia outfielder Endy Chavez, who struck out twice against the Phils’ 7th round draft pick from 2007.

In three regular season starts for the Tiburones, the 27-year-old Brummett posted a 1-0 record with a 1.59 ERA and a .195 batting average against.

The 6-foot 185-pounder was the starting pitcher for Reading's finale in the Eastern League playoffs when they fell in the deciding game to the eventual champion New Hampshire Fisher Cats. In five professional seasons, Brummett has posted a 21-41 record with a 4.74 ERA and 5 saves in 150 games (75 starts).

Brummett’s teammates in Venezuela include Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez, who has not allowed a run this winter in Venezuelan League play. Lefty pitcher Les Walrond, who posted a combined 1.80 ERA in 33 total games with Reading and Lehigh Valley in 2011 is also on the Tiburones roster.

The Venezuelan League finals begin Monday night in Maracay, Aragua.

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right.
