That will likely soon change after the Bayamon, Puerto Rico native suits up for the White Team at the upcoming New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series Main Event, set for September 29-October 1.
Brisueño was first seen at an FSS event at the Puerto Rico Regional Combine back in April, where the young corner outfielder showed enough to earn an invite to the National Combine in Nashville. The scouting staff at both events sees power potential in his bat moving forward, and an overall “alert, aggressive and engaging player.”
“My (FSS) experience so far has been good; I like the dynamics of the events, like the structures of the events like Tennessee, the organization, and the great group of coaches and the management staff, it not going to be a surprise if this event is even better,” he said.
With the extensive and experienced FSS development staff at his disposal at Shelby Park in July, the six-foot-two, 190-pounder seems to have gained plenty of valuable knowledge that he’ll be able show this coming weekend.
“I have been working on everything that I can (to) get better since last time in Tennessee,” Brisueño said. “I have been working on my strength, working on repetition and maintenance of the 60-yard dash. In batting, working on the angle at which the ball comes out and repetition of the swing. In addition, in fielding, work with the angle at which the ball comes out and the throw to the bases. The observations and instructions that I got from the staff at the Tennessee event helped me identify more areas to develop and make it better, and to think a little bit different and be more aggressive on the field.”
The next field he’ll get to show that development in his game on, of course, is unlike any other he’s been on before.
“The most exciting part is only the fact that I have the chance to play in those fields, is unbelievable, I only think that I am going to play in a park where so many legends play is getting me crazy,” he said. “I just cannot wait.”
With big-league teams potentially unfamiliar with him as well, Brisueño knows this is a big opportunity to make a big impression and get on their radar moving forward.
“I am looking to show who really I am and show that I have the ability to play at a big level,” he said.
