Biographical Information[edit]

Arturo Barradas has pitched over 500 games his first eleven seasons as a pro.

He debuted with the GCL Marlins in 2006 (he had been signed by Florida Marlins scout Marc DelPiano), going 3-2 with a 3.42 ERA, walking only 7 in 47 1/3 IP. With the Tomateros de Culiacan that winter, he allowed a hit to the lone batter he faced. He went 1-4 with a 5.40 ERA for the 2007 Tigres de Quintana Roo. The next summer, he pitched well in limited time for the Tigres (0 R in 7 2/3 IP). With Quintana Roo in '09, he posted a 6-1, 2.44 record. Had he qualified for the league lead in ERA (he was within 10 IP), he would have ranked third behind Francisco Campos and Juan Pablo Oramas. He was 3-2 with a 3.62 ERA that winter for the Tomateros.

In 2010, Barradas was 8-5 with a 5.46 ERA for Quintana Roo. He struggled in the winter with a 8.53 ERA and 2.13 WHIP in 21 contests for Culiacan. In '11, his woes continued with the Tigres (0-1, 6.75 in 19 G) but he rebounded in the winter (0-1, 3.46). He was an extreme LOOGY, with 13 IP in 34 games pitched (he faced 53 batters). He allowed one run in 2 1/3 IP over 7 games for Quintana Roo in 2012 then was 1-0 with a 4.72 ERA in the winter. He went 1-1 with a 4.96 ERA for the 2013 Tigres and 0-2 with a 5.79 ERA in 28 outings for the 2013-2014 Tomateros.

The Veracruz native was 5-2 with a 3.22 ERA in 57 games (50 1/3 IP) for Quintana Roo in 2014. He tied for fifth in the Mexican League in games pitched. He pitched for the Mexican national team in the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games, working in one game and throwing one inning (1 H, 2 BB, 0 R). He had a 3.63 ERA in 23 games that winter for the Tomateros. In '15, he was 1-0 with two saves and a 2.18 ERA in 57 relief outings for the Tigres, working 33 innings. The southpaw specialist tied for fifth in the LMB in games pitched. Traded by the Tomateros to the Venados de Mazatlán (for Manuel Orozco), he was 0-1 with a 2.42 ERA in 37 games for his new team. He led the Mexican Pacific League in games pitched, two ahead of Carlos Bustamante.

Back with Team Mexico for the 2016 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers, he relieved Javier Solano in the top of the 7th of the finale, with a 12-0 lead over Nicaragua. He allowed a double to Dwight Britton, got Sandor Guido on a grounder, allowed a double to Elmer Reyes (just the second run allowed by Mexico in three games) and got Darrel Campbell on a fly. Oliver Pérez relieved to close out the win as Mexico advanced to the 2017 World Baseball Classic. He was shipped to the Rojos del Águila as the player to be named later for Greg Golson. He struggled with his new club (3-2, Sv, 5.63 in 24 G) and was loaned to the Pericos de Puebla, for whom he was 1-0 with a 4.32 ERA in 13 games. He was 2-2 with a 4.86 ERA in 30 games in the winter for the Venados.
