Physical Description: Tall right-hander with a large frame.
Maxed out physically.

Mechanics: 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.

Fastball: 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.

Curveball:
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. Is utilizing it more in 2019.

Changeup: Minimally-used changeup sits in the high 80s. Below-average pitch.


Career Notes: 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.

Summation: 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.
