Tall right-hander with a large frame. Maxed out physically.
Smooth mechanics, does not overly exert himself on delivery. High
three-quarters arm slot. Remains balanced. Fringe-average
control. Has shown the ability to miss bats in the high minors
while generating ground balls.
Throws a hard cutter that sits 93-94 mph, which is one of the
hardest thrown cutters in MLB. Relies on the pitch approximately
60% of the time. Also occasionally mixes in a 96 mph four-seam
fastball with minimal movement.
Best secondary offering is a MLB-average 83-84 mph power curveball
with an excellent spin rate.
Slider: 87-89 mph. Pitch comes and goes from his
arsenal. Began utilizing it more in 2019.
Minimally-used changeup sits in the high 80s. Below-average pitch.
Spent the 2014 season on the restricted list for unknown reasons.
Was a minor league Rule 5 pick of the Yankees in December 2016.
Red Sox reportedly tried to sign Brewer as a minor league free
agent after the 2017 season, then tried to trade for him before
the 2018 trade deadline before finally landing him in November
2018. Opened 2021 season at the Alternate Training Site.
Outrighted to Worcester in June 2021.
Profiles as an up-and-down bullpen arm. Could develop into a
reliable middle reliever or even an occasional setup man if he
hones his control and gets the right mix of his cutter,
curveball, and slider.
