Cubs' Brad Brach: Picks up first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brach (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the win in Monday's game against the Pirates. He allowed a hit and a walk, while striking out three.

Chicago starter Jon Lester left the game with a hamstring injury after facing one batter in the third inning, and Brach subsequently got through that frame as well as the next. It helped the righty's cause that the Cubs exploded for 10 runs, but he still offered valuable relief work on a day when the bullpen had to record 21 outs. Brach now has a solid 1.50 ERA through his first six innings of work this season, and with Brandon Morrow (elbow) on the shelf and Carl Edwards currently in the minors, he could pitch some important innings for Chicago moving forward.

Cubs' Brad Brach: Velocity down during spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brach's velocity has topped out in the upper 80s during his two Cactus League appearances heading into Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

For what it's worth, Brach said he isn't dealing with any physical issue and noted that he's noticed his radar readings during spring training have routinely been lower than normal each of the past four seasons. Per Brooks Baseball, Brach's four-seamer averaged no worse than 93.5 miles per hour in any month last season, so the right-hander has a fairly sizable deficit to make up if he's to maintain that level of velocity in 2019.

Cubs' Brad Brach: Restructures deal with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brach restructured his contract with the Cubs, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

A viral infection that Brach was dealing with apparently showed up during his physical, prompting the Cubs to drop his base salary from $3 million in 2019 to $1.65 million. The veteran right-hander downplayed the severity of the issue, chalking it up to "bad timing" while adding that he's "on time" for the start of the season. Brach figures to assume a setup role with the Cubs.

Cubs' Brad Brach: Signs with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brach signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Cubs on Thursday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports. The deal also includes a mutual option.

Brach spent time with the Orioles and Braves in 2018, posting a combined 3.59 ERA and 8.6 K/9 across 62.2 innings of relief. The right-hander should slide into a setup role with the Cubs, though he could be used as a righty specialist given Chicago's bullpen depth and Brach's splits last season (.692 OPS against righties, .838 OPS against lefties).

Braves' Brad Brach: Records save Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brach allowed one walk and struck out a batter to turn in a scoreless 10th inning and record the save Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Brach entered the game in the 10th inning after Jesse Biddle allowed the Diamondbacks to tie the game in the ninth. Both Dan Winkler and A.J. Minter were roughed up on Wednesday and presumably unavailable Thursday, allowing Brach to fill the void and record his first save as a Brave. Assuming Winkler and Minter bounce back, however, it doesn't appear that Brach will be in line for many more save chances before the season comes to a close.
