SHREVEPORT, La. – One day after the Milwaukee Brewers chose to sign former Pilot Trey Robledo to a free-agent contract, the organization inked another former LSUS hurler with the signing of right hander Brandon Texiera who is now awaiting his assignment for his new employer.


Tex's bad run of tough luck took a turn for the better when he got the call from Milwaukee after having not pitched in a live competition since May 17 of the 2016 season as he was deemed ineligible prior to the start of the 2017 season.

But the righty from Coral Springs, Florida, did not let that keep him from taking a step toward his dream as worked hard day in and day out and now he is getting a shot at climbing the ladder to obtain the ultimate goal of making it to "The Show."

"I am overwhelmed to think that after all I have been through that I would get the opportunity to play affiliated ball," said Texiera who missed the majority of the 2015 season due to an injury only to find out he would not be able to play his final season at LSUS. "I just want to thank the Brewers organization for giving me this chance and to thank all my family and friends for believing in me even when it looked like I had no chance," ended Tex.

"I am very happy with how Brandon handled adversity this year and he was able to put an unfavorable eligibility ruling behind him and has worked very hard to get this opportunity," said LSUS coach Brent Lavallee. "The odds were against him to get this chance but he handled his business and made it happen. He was a big contributor to the LSU Shreveport baseball program over his time here and we are excited to see what he does with this opportunity but equally as excited to see him come back and graduate after one more semester."
