A report out of Venezuela says that a member of the Milwaukee Brewers farm system has been shot.
Javier Betancourt, an infielder from the Biloxi Shuckers, is coming to Milwaukee for surgery after being shot in the left arm, according to WTMJ Brewers 360 contributor Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel.
The incident allegedly involved an argument.
Betancourt came to the Brewers system in 2015 after a trade involving closer Francisco Rodriguez to Detroit in 2015.
According to Haudricourt, GM David Stearns says Betancourt's injuries are "not life threatening and he is resting comfortably."
Haudricourt cites this report from a Venezuelan journalist:
