The Margarita Braves reported this Saturday that they acquired the services of pitcher Endrys Briceño, from Tiburones de La Guaira.
The team made the announcement through their social networks and noted that they would later offer details about the player they will deliver to the sharks.
Endrys Briceño, who at one time was among the Detroit Tigers' best prospects, debuted in the LVBP in the 2013-2014 campaign and then had a second participation in the 2016-2017 season, both with Tiburones de La Guaira.
On both occasions he saw action in only three games and completed four and a third innings. And both finished with a large ERA, first 6.23 and then 12.46.
But a lot has changed since then. Endrys Briceño - who was away from baseball for two years - has three seasons in the Atlantic League with Southern Maryland and even saw action last year in Puerto Rico with the Mayaguez Indians.
In three years in the Atlantic League, in 108 games, he has a record of 11-4 with a 2.61 ERA, 174 strikeouts and just 55 walks. All this in 120 innings and two-thirds of work.
Likewise, with Mayagüez he participated in 16 games, completing 15 and a third innings, leaving a 1-0 record and even scoring a couple of saves. He finished with a 3.52 earned run average.
