Right-handed pitcher Colton Brewer (31) is expected to head to the Japanese Professional Baseball (NPB).
Japan’s Nikkan Sports said on the 토토사이트 10th that the Hanshin Tigers are moving to recruit Brewers. Brewer was released from the Yankees club on the 8th and his future was marked with a question mark. Hanshin is ranked first in the Central League with 43 wins and 32 losses (0.573) and one game ahead of the Yokohama DeNA BayStars (42 wins and 33 losses). However, Atsuki Yuasa, a key bullpen, has left due to an elbow injury and needs to reinforce the bullpen. Nikkan Sports said, “It is urgent to strengthen the bullpen, where Yuasa left.” If the emergency reinforcement is successful, the bullpen will become thicker.’
Brewer’s five-year MLB career record is 2 wins, 5 losses, and 7 holds with a 4.98 ERA. He pitched in three games this season with a 4.32 ERA without losing or losing. In the minor leagues, he is a professional bullpen. His career (10 years) minor league performance was 22 wins, 29 losses, 21 saves, and a 3.99 ERA. This season, he was stable with a 1.35 ERA in 15 games (two starts) in Triple-A under the Yankees. Mix sliders and curves with fast balls that exceed 150 kilometers per hour.
Nikkan Sports said, “The club investigated extensively, including foreign pitchers in the independent league.” Among them, Brewer seems to have emerged as a strong candidate,’ he said.
