Biographical Information[edit]

Eric Farris was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 4th round of the 2007 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Corey Rodriguez and made his pro debut that summer.

Farris was first called up to the major leagues by the Milwaukee Brewers when starting 2B Rickie Weeks went on the disabled list with a twisted ankle in late July, 2011. Farris made his debut as a pinch-hitter on July 28th, making an out in a game against the Chicago Cubs. That was his only major league action of the season.

He was the best player for the Philippines national team in the 2017 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers played in Australia in February, 2016. He went 5 for 7 in the Philippines' two losses, scoring his team's lone run in its opening loss to Australia and then hitting a pair of doubles against New Zealand the next day. He led the Sydney qualifying pool in average (.025 over Keegan Swanepoel), was second in OBP (.007 behind Anthony Phillips), slugging (.125 behind Trent Oeltjen) and OPS (behind Oeltjen) and tied for 4th in hits (one behind James Beresford, Anthony Phillips and Swanepoel, all of whom played more games).

In 2018, he was named hitting coach of the Everett AquaSox.
