Profile:  Signed by the Brewers just prior to the start of the 2017 Dominican Summer League season, Batista debuted in his native Dominican, working out of the bullpen for the DSL Brewers.  AN imposing figure at six-foot-five, Batista allowed a lot of base runners in his pro debut, struggling to throw strikes at times.

2017:  Milwaukee assigned Batista to their Dominican Summer League team after signing him in 2017 and he saw action in nine games out of the bullpen.  He went 1-1 with a 5.63 earned run average but finished with a WHIP of 1.69, allowing 18 hits in 16 innings to go along with nine walks.
