Brua assigned to Vancouver Canadians of the Northwest League

Avon High School and Oberlin College graduate Phil Brua, who accepted a free agent contract from the Toronto Blue Jays, has been assigned to the Vancouver Canadians, a Class A affiliate that plays in the Northwest League.

The Canadians have their home opener this Friday against the Yakima Bears.

Brua left Oberlin as the all-time leader in saves (11) and appearances (65) and is second all-time in wins (15). The sidearm specialist held opposing hitters to just a .213 batting average while averaging over six strikeouts per nine innings during his senior season.Brua’s chances of signing a professional contract came to light last summer while playing in the Prospect League for the Lorain County Ironmen.

In four years at Oberlin College, Brua posted a record of 15-15 in 65 total appearances, while making 17 starts. He threw 187 2/3 innings and struck out 143 batters. He leaves as the all-time saves leader with 11.
