Bakersfield native and Centennial High School graduate Corbin Burnes got the call to the major leagues on Sunday.

Burnes, a pitcher in the Milwaukee Brewers organization, was called up to the Brewers as Ryan Braun and Manny Pina were placed on the disabled list.

Despite some early season struggles at AAA in 2018, Burnes sported an ERA of 1.67 last year and is highly touted within the organization.
