With presumably some of Milwaukee’s young pitchers headed to the rotation (i.e. Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff), manager Craig Counsell could use a little help in the bullpen. Brach qualifies in Counsell’s role of an “out-getter” and has numerous experience pitching from the fifth inning on and has even closed out some games (33 career saves). Brach was excellent with Baltimore from 2014-17, posting a 2.74 ERA, 1.113 WHIP and 9.5 K/9 over 246 games. However, he slumped with the Orioles in 2018 (4.85 EA, 1.769 WHP) and was dealt to Atlanta, where he finished on a better note (1.52 ERA, 1.310 WHIP). The right-hander could be another strong arm in an already solid Brewers pen.
