Only once in a blue moon will Brebbia pull out the change up. It has some wicked horizontal movement so I am surprised he does not use it more. It is only thrown around 10 times a season.

Brebbia mostly just throws a fastball and a slider. His fastball sits at 94 mph down a tick from his first two seasons. He’s kept a solid 13.4% swinging strike rate with a great 28.8% K rate, both great for a fastball.

Brebbia’s main off speed pitch is his slider with nearly the same results as the fastball. He is able swap between these two pitches but still gets plenty more swings outside the zone with the slider and far less swings inside the zone with it too.

Brebbia made nice strides with his heater last season, adding 2 mph to the pitch and throwing it less often in the zone. Hitters swung and missed more often and made less overall contact, hitting only .192. He also allowed only one home run after allowing five in 2017, posting a pVal over 4.0 for the second consecutive season.

Adding horizontal movement and losing some vertical movement hurt Brebbia’s slider last season, as opposing hitters hit .102 points higher on the pitch compared to 2017. Some bad BABIP luck could be the culprit, but despite trading grounders for fly balls he still allowed three home runs on the pitch. It was still a positive pitch, but Brebbia will need to reign in the long-ball issues.
