Braves' Rex Brothers: Comes to terms with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brothers agreed to a one-year, $1.1 million deal with the Braves on Thursday.

Brothers will return to Atlanta for a second season after avoiding salary arbitration with Thursday's non-guaranteed contract. The veteran reliever appeared in 27 games for the Braves last season, posting a 7.23 ERA (3.66 FIP) over 23.2 innings of work. As has been the case throughout his professional career, Brothers flashed impressive strikeout upside (31.4 percent K-rate), but continued to struggle with his command (11.4 percent walk rate). Barring any major mechanical adjustments, he'll likely be no more than a low-leverage relief arm for the Braves in 2018.

Braves' Rex Brothers: Recalled from Gwinnett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brothers was called up by the Braves on Friday.

Brothers looks to provide more depth to Atlanta's bullpen as the club brings up a wave of September call-ups prior to Friday's game against the Cubs. During 17 relief appearances with the big-league team this season, Brothers has posted an ugly 7.63 ERA, including six earned runs over his last three innings of action. He figures to see time during low-leverage situations moving forward.

Braves' Rex Brothers: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brothers was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Brothers hasn't turned many heads since being summoned to the Braves at the end of June -- he's posted a weak 7.63 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 15.1 innings -- so he'll head back to the minors for some more seasoning before returning sometime after rosters expand in September. The move clears room for Dan Winkler (elbow), who was reinstated from the 60-day DL in a corresponding move.

Braves' Rex Brothers: Struggling since return to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brothers has allowed five runs and recorded eight strikeouts across 7.2 innings this season.

The 29-year-old has already allowed two home runs since being called up in late June, but also has a win and two holds in his eight appearances. Brothers has been used primarily in low-leverage thus far, and will need to earn the trust of manager Brian Snitker if he's going to see high-leverage work.

Braves' Rex Brothers: Unimpressive in Braves debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brothers gave up two hits and struck out one in an inning of relief during Thursday's loss to the Padres.

After Jaime Garcia walked the leadoff hitter in the seventh inning with the Braves already down 5-0, Brothers came in and allowed the inherited runner to score before fanning Cory Spangenberg to end the frame. Expect the former Rockie to continue working in low-leverage situations for now, but Brothers' career numbers against same-side pitching (.221/.335/.320 with a 28.9 percent K rate) could eventually allow him to supplant Ian Krol as the top lefty in Atlanta's bullpen if he proves himself.
