2019 Fantasy Outlook
Despite coming off a solid season and a strong spring, Brebbia began 2018 with Triple-A Memphis. It didn't take long before he made the first of his six trips to the majors as the Cardinals shuttled Brebbia back and forth often. In between stints on the farm, Brebbia pitched well, mostly in low-leverage scenarios though he did record five holds and two saves, one of the three-inning variety. Of the 18 runs Brebbia surrendered, eight came in a two-week stretch when he allowed at least one tally in five of six outings. With 60 whiffs in 51.2 innings, Brebbia could handle a consistent late-inning role but since he still has an option left, he could also make the trip back and forth from Memphis again. Brebbia isn't someone to consider on draft day, but monitor his early-season usage as he could emerge as a candidate in leagues scoring holds. Read Past Outlooks

Notches first win
PSt. Louis Cardinals
April 10, 2019
Brebbia (1-0) fired 1.1 scoreless innings in a win over the Dodgers on Tuesday, allowing no hits and a walk while recording three strikeouts.
Brebbia took over for starter Dakota Hudson with the young right-hander already at 100 pitches and just one out shy of qualifying for the win. Brebbia was able to finish that frame and notch another three outs in the sixth, all on a relatively efficient 24 pitches. The 28-year-old right-hander has yet to be scored upon through five appearances this season, allowing just two hits and three walks and generating a 10:3 K:BB across 7.2 innings.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Brebbia appeared in 50 games last season, but threw just 51.2 innings of work in mostly low-leverage situations. He pitches with a very heavy flyball tilt, and paid the price for that with a high home run rate, but limited his damage by being stingy with the walks. The 2.44 ERA had a lot of help from a suppressed .216 BABIP and an inflated 91 percent left-on-base rate -- two fortunes that are unlikely to continue in 2018. He also did all of this without recording a single decision or a save, which (min. 50 innings) is something that has only been done two other times in baseball history. One was by Peter Moylan last year and the other was by Sam Freeman in 2015.
