Hiram Burgos (born August 4, 1987) is a Puerto Rican professional baseball pitcher in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. He attended the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy and High School and Bethune-Cookman College. In 2013, he made his Major League Baseball debut with the Brewers.

Professional career[edit]

Burgos was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 6th round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft. The Brewers added him to their 40-man roster after the 2012 season.

The Brewers promoted Burgos to the major leagues on April 19, 2013[1] and subsequently made his major league debut on April 20, 2013. His first career start came the same day at home against the Chicago Cubs. On May 11, Burgos had an ineffective start against the Cincinnati Reds, allowing 12 runs (10 earned) in just 3 innings pitched. A day after his sixth start of the season on May 21, Burgos was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement. [2]

Burgos was released by the Brewers on September 2, 2014, and signed a minor league contract with them on January 30, 2015.[3]
