SHREVEPORT, La. – Former LSU Shreveport left hander Trey Robledo inked a free-agent contract with Milwaukee Brewers yesterday to begin his professional career. Robledo will report to the Arizona League Brewers – the Rookie affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. The team participates in the Central Division in Phoenix, Arizona.

"I can't thank Coach Brent Lavallee enough for helping me get the exposure and I can't give enough thanks to the big man up above and the Brewers organization for allowing me to have this opportunity," said Robledo who was told by the local Brewers scout Mark Muzzi to keep his phone by him during the draft.

Unfortunately for Robledo and Muzzi the Brewers never made a call to him during the Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft earlier this week but the Fredereicksburg, Texas native finally got the call from the Brewers offering him a free agent contract.

"It's wonderful to see that Trey is going to get the chance to pitch professionally," said Lavallee. "He is very unique on the mound and I think there could be a good chance that he climbs the minor league ladder quickly. Personally, Trey has been one of the most consistent student-athletes that we have had come through this program. When he got to LSUS he made a commitment to his schoolwork, his body, and his arm which allowed him to improve in all areas. He is the ultimate teammate and we are all so very proud of him. We look forward to tracking his progress and we will all be following his path."

Robledo becomes the 5th LSUS player to sign a free-agent contract with a Major League club and adds to the streak of three straight seasons where a former Pilot inked a pro deal to play affiliated ball. Jared West was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in 2015, Kevin Williams singed with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2016 and now Robledo begins his journey with the Brewers.
