Matt Brash

24-Year-Old PitcherSP
Seattle Mariners AAA
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. Read Past Outlooks

Gets hold in Rainiers debut
PSeattle Mariners  AAA
May 9, 2022
Brash was credited with his first hold in Triple-A Tacoma's win over Salt Lake on Sunday, allowing an earned run on a solo home run, an additional hit and two walks over two innings. He struck out three.
ANALYSIS
Just demoted from the big-league club Thursday, Brash was solid in his first minor-league appearance of 2022, albeit while displaying a hint of the control issues that led to him being cast off the Mariners roster for the moment. Brash is slated to remain in a bullpen role with the Rainiers for the time being as he acclimates to the Triple-A level and Pacific Coast League specifically -- the 23-year-old jumped to the majors directly from Double-A when he made the Opening Day roster coming out of spring training.
