2023 Fantasy Outlook
Brash opened the year in the Mariners' starting rotation, but issued 17 walks and had a 2.05 WHIP through five starts and was subsequently demoted to the minors. After two months in Triple-A, he returned to Seattle as a reliever. The right-hander fared much better in this role, recording a 2.35 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 43:16 K:BB over his final 30.2 innings. He still had one of the league's worst walk rates at 14.9%, but issued "only" 4.7 BB/9 in relief versus 7.7 BB/9 as a starter. Brash didn't find success with his 97 mph fastball (.379 BA), but his slider and curve were excellent. It's clear he has the stuff to be a shutdown reliever for the M's, but he'll need to improve his control to earn more high-leverage opportunities. Read Past Outlooks

Gets fourth win Friday
PSeattle Mariners
October 1, 2022
Brash (4-4) got the win over the Athletics on Friday, firing a scoreless ninth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.
ANALYSIS
Brash was exceedingly sharp while getting seven of his eight pitches in for strikes, and he was rewarded with his fourth win of the season when Cal Raleigh slugged a pinch hit home run that sent the Mariners home with a win and an AL wild-card berth. Except for one stumble against the Royals on Sept. 25, Brash has been nearly flawless since mid-August, turning in scoreless efforts in 18 of his 19 trips to the mound during that span.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Brash had thrown just 5.1 pro innings prior to last season, which ended up being a breakout campaign. He relied primarily on a 96-mph four-seam fastball that touched 100 mph and a low-to-mid-80s slider with elite spin and movement. Brash's slider is one of the best sliders currently in pro ball. He also throws a changeup and curveball, but those lag behind as distant third and fourth offerings, respectively. It's his command and control that he really needs to improve upon to reach his potential, however, as his changeup just needs to be passable for him to have success as a starter, and he may not even need a viable third pitch given how good his top two pitches are. The 6-foot-1 righty logged an 11.9 BB% in 97.1 innings at High-A and Double-A, and he can have trouble repeating his delivery. Already on the 40-man roster, Brash will begin the regular season in the major-league rotation, ahead of guys like George Kirby and Emerson Hancock. His fastball/slider combination is enough for him to have a fallback option as a shutdown reliever if starting doesn't work out.
