Overall

Note: Brewer missed the entire 2014 season

Brewer has a big FB but the mechanics and secondary pitches need refinement before he hits his ceiling. There is enough ability for a potential backend arm, but the inconsistencies in his mechanics and the lack of an average secondary offering leave his role likely in the bullpen as a middle relief option.

Round Drafted: 4th round, 2011
Why: big framed pitcher; power FB; potential to be a workhorse SP.
