Biographical Information[edit]

Felipe Sales has pitched for the Brazilian national team.

Sales played for Brazil in the 2005 World Youth Championship. He later played for Yamaha in Japan's industrial leagues. In the 2017 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers, he was one of two Brazilian team members active with Yamaha; the other was Reinaldo Sato. Sales was the only Brazilian to pitch in multiple games in the qualifiers (Brazil lasted three games) though his 3.38 ERA was the team's highest. Against Israel, he relieved Murilo Gouvea with a 1-0 deficit. He walked Mike Meyers, struck out Zach Borenstein, walked Ryan Lavarnway, fanned Nate Freiman, then was relieved by Hugo Kanabushi. In the semifinals against Great Britain, he relieved Andre Rienzo in the 6th with a 3-2 deficit. He allowed two hits, two walks and one run in two innings (the run coming when Kyle Simmons singled in Albert Cartwright) before Thyago Vieira relieved with the score now 4-3; neither team would score again.
