Brackman’s struggle with command continues


AzFL Peoria (5-4 loss to Pheonix)
Kevin Russo: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K – played left field for what I believe is the first time in his career … he threw a runner out at second, so I’m sure he’ll be seeing a little more action out there

HWB Waikiki (14-5 loss to North Shore)
Damon Sublett: 1 for 4, 2 R, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 3 K - 15 strikeouts in only 38 at-bats … yikes
Andrew Brackman: 4 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 4 K, 2 WP, 1 HB, 4-4 GB/FB – only 45 of 84 pitches were strikes (53.6%) … the wheels kinda came off in the 3rd, when he allowed 3 runs (walk, homer, walk, steal, wild pitch, single) on 31 pitches … he’d thrown just 16 pitches in the first & 15 in the second

    As long as Brackman’s pure stuff is back, no one should pay any attention to the control issues.

  2. Reggie C. says:

    Is Damon Sublett a prospect ? Dont recall reading anything about him last season.

  3. A.D. says:

    Only way Miranda didn’t get a double was to keep him on the bench

  4. A.D. says:

    At least Brack had a far better outing than the guy that replaced him

  5. J.R. says:

    Brackman has pitched three times after taking a year and a half rehab for surgery. Clearly he will have some control problems starting out.

  6. Steve says:

    When they called him a right handed Randy Johnson, they weren’t kidding.

    Randy had no idea where the ball was going until he turned 25.
