Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 70 95-96 97 Explosive pitch, late life with some sink, mild run, plays straighter when elevated, swing-and-miss potential in and above zone; commands it to glove side, will wander up in the zone, control ahead of fine command, double-plus potential with modest command refinement
SL 60 89-90 91 Hard vertical action, lacks much of a second plane, inconsistent late bite; chase pitch, starts it at or below bottom of the zone; maintains arm speed, tunnels off fastball, 50 movement, 70 velocity

Signed as an IFA for $75,000 in 2011, Brasoban is a physically maxed right-handed flamethrower with the potential to move fast and graduate into a high-leverage role. His fastball is a live one that finishes with some late sink, leading to ample swing-and-miss and ground ball contact. The slider doesn't have a ton of bite, but he generates solid vertical action with it and it shows occasional two-plane action. The pitch plays up by virtue of not being his fastball and still cracking 90 mph, and batters have a hard time staying off it. The delivery has some effort to it, though his arm is loose and he repeats reasonably well, to where solid-average command is in play. If he gets the command there he can develop into a second-division closer, with a more likely role setting up.
