Brebbia recorded two strikeouts and allowed a hit over a scoreless inning in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Pirates.
The right-handed reliever fired 10 of 13 pitches for strikes while putting together his sixth straight scoreless effort. The 27-year-old right-hander has been one of the season's pleasant surprises for the Cardinals, as he's now boasting a 2.25 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 47 strikeouts along with five holds over 48 innings. He's finishing the season strong, as he has a 2.00 ERA and 15:4 K:BB in nine innings across his last 10 appearances.
Brebbia notched his fifth hold in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Reds, firing a scoreless eighth inning in which he allowed a hit and recorded two strikeouts.
Brebbia needed just 14 pitches, 10 of which he threw for strikes, to get through his one frame. The 27-year-old right-hander had given up an earned run apiece in each of his last two outings, so his scoreless effort was a welcome sight. Although he hasn't seen many hold opportunities, Brebbia's 2.45 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 42 strikeouts over 44 innings have kept him on the fantasy radar in deep NL-only and mixed formats.
Brebbia fired a scoreless eighth inning in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Pirates, recording a strikeout.
Brebbia fired 12 of his 17 pitches for strikes on his way to his fourth straight scoreless outing. The 27-year-old right-hander has allowed just one hit and notched four strikeouts over the 3.1 innings encompassing that stretch, and the 10 appearances he's logged overall in August are a testament to the trust he's apparently earned from manager Mike Matheny. Factoring in Sunday's outing, Brebbia boasts an impressive 2.04 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 29:5 K:BB over 35.1 innings.
Brebbia recorded his second hold in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Brewers despite giving up two earned runs on two hits over two-thirds of an inning. He also recorded a strikeout.
The young reliever gave up some hard contact, allowing a double to Ryan Braun to open the eighth before getting touched up by Jesus Aguilar for a two-run blast that closed the Brewers' deficit to one run. Brebbia hadn't surrendered an earned run since June 17, so Wednesday's stumble could certainly be labeled as more or less of an outlier. His impressive 2.00 ERA and 0.81 WHIP certainly give him some value in NL-only and deep formats, but he doesn't offer much strikeout upside and hasn't seen many hold opportunities to date.
Brebbia fired a scoreless seventh inning in Wednesday's 10-5 win over the Rockies in which he recorded a strikeout.
Brebbia's streak of not allowing an earned run is now at 11 appearances, a stretch that's allowed him to lower his ERA from 3.38 to 1.54. The rookie right-hander has been one of the bullpen's pleasant surprises since debuting May 28, and given his ability to work multiple frames when necessary, he figures to continue seeing plenty of work for the balance of the campaign.
