Bio: The Tri-Cities has served up some wicked heat this summer, but Brazoban, now in his second professional season, has been dealing it for quite a while from the mound. Known for a fastball that has recently been clocked at 101 mph, the Dominican native appeared in 18 games in his first professional season in the Dominican Summer League. He sorted out some control issues there — walking 15 batters in 17 innings — but showed some promise, too, with 15 strikeouts. In his first year playing in the U.S., Brazoban has pitched well for the Dust Devils at home, going 0-1 with a 1.93 ERA with six strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings, and allowing just one earned run at Gesa Stadium.
