Jake Faria was one of the pitchers who joined the San Antonio Missions after the July 31 MLB trade deadline.
Faria appeared for the Missions at Wolff Stadium on Aug. 3. He pitched one inning and retired the three batters he faced.
Two days later, Faria was called up by the Milwaukee Brewers. Tuesday night he made his first appearance for the Brewers, pitching two scoreless innings in a road game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He allowed two hits and struck out one batter with no walks.
Before the trade, he was in the Tampa Bay Rays organization. He appeared in seven games for the Rays this season, all in relief, and had a 2.70 ERA. He also pitched in 23 games for Triple-A Durham and had a 4.07 ERA.
Faria is a 26-year-old, 6-foot-4 right-hander.
