2015

2014

Blazek joined the Brewers late in the 2013 season, after being acquired in a deal for former closer John Axford. For the first time in his career, Blazek pitched exclusively as a reliever, a transition that seemed to fit him well, as he posted a 1.97 ERA and struck out 52 batters in 45.2 minor league innings. His control could use some work, but he throws three other pitches besides a 95-mph fastball, so he could be a factor at some point in what figures to be an inexperienced bullpen.
