Brebbia, who fired a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in an extra-inning win over the Pirates on Monday, has a 2-0 record, one hold, a 2.00 ERA and a 17:2 K:BB across nine innings in July (seven appearances).
Following a disastrous month of June during which Brebbia was touched up for 12 runs (10 earned) over 10.1 innings in 11 appearances, the right-hander has turned things around significantly. Brebbia has had only one stumble since the calendar flipped, yielding two earned runs over two-thirds of an inning to the Diamondbacks on July 14. Otherwise, he's only allowed Monday's hit and a walk across the other 8.2 frames he's worked during the month.
Brebbia (2-3) picked up the win Wednesday against the Mariners after tossing 2.1 perfect innings with six strikeouts.
With the Cardinals trailing 2-0 in the sixth, Brebbia replaced reliever Tyler Webb to record the final out of the inning. Brebbia was then even more effective in his next two frames, posting a season-high six strikeouts in his longest appearance of the year. Through 37 games in relief, the 29-year-old owns a 3.21 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 52:15 K:BB.
Brebbia was activated from the paternity list Tuesday.
Despite losing a tick of velocity off his fastball, Brebbia has retained a good deal of effectiveness, posting a 27.5 percent strikeout rate and 3.81 FIP through 39.2 innings this season. He should slot back into a setup role in front of new primary closer Carlos Martinez. Brebbia currently ranks third on the team in holds with seven, behind Andrew Miller and John Gant (10 apiece).
Brebbia was placed on the paternity list Saturday.
Brebbia has struggled in June with 12 runs allowed (10 earned) in 11 outings and will now have a few days away from the team to attend the birth of his child. The 29-year-old was having a fantastic season prior to this month with a 1.53 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 35:10 K:BB across 29.1 innings.
Brebbia, who allowed three earned runs on two hits and a walk while recording a strikeout over an inning in a loss to the Marlins on Wednesday, now has a 15.75 ERA over the four innings covering his five appearances in June.
Heading into June, Brebbia was mostly cruising, as he sported a 1.53 ERA and seven holds across 29.1 innings. However, he's subsequently allowed multiple earned runs in three of his five outings during the current month, a stretch that's been in stark contrast to the caliber of effort he'd turned in the first two months-plus of the campaign. Brebbia's rising 3.24 ERA and 1.08 WHIP are both certainly solid numbers in a vacuum, but they lose some of their luster when compared to earlier in the season.
Brebbia fired a scoreless sixth inning in which he allowed no hits or walks and recorded two strikeouts in a loss to the Braves on Wednesday.
The right-handed reliever is enjoying a stellar season overall, although his most recent appearance prior to Wednesday represented his one blowup of the season. Brebbia allowed three earned runs on three hits and a walk over an inning to the Pirates last Sunday, but his clean inning against Atlanta brought his ERA down to 1.90. The 28-year-old also has seven holds and boasts an impressive 27 strikeouts over 23.2 innings.
Brebbia, who notched his seventh hold in a win over the Nationals on Monday with a scoreless eighth inning in which he allowed three walks and recorded a strikeout, now sports an 0.55 ERA and 0.86 WHIP across 16.1 innings.
The 28-year-old right-hander has been one of manager Mike Shildt's most trusted and versatile relief options, with six of his 14 appearances consisting of more than one inning. Brebbia also has an impressive 20 strikeouts across his 16.1 frames, and Shildt seems willing to afford him all the work he can handle if his early usage is any indication.
Brebbia (1-0) fired 1.1 scoreless innings in a win over the Dodgers on Tuesday, allowing no hits and a walk while recording three strikeouts.
Brebbia took over for starter Dakota Hudson with the young right-hander already at 100 pitches and just one out shy of qualifying for the win. Brebbia was able to finish that frame and notch another three outs in the sixth, all on a relatively efficient 24 pitches. The 28-year-old right-hander has yet to be scored upon through five appearances this season, allowing just two hits and three walks and generating a 10:3 K:BB across 7.2 innings.
Brebbia will open the season in the Cardinals' bullpen, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
This isn't all too surprising, as Brebbia owns a 3.00 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB through nine frames this spring. The 28-year-old posted a 3.20 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 10.7 K/9 in 50.2 innings out of the big-league bullpen in 2018.
The Cardinals recalled Brebbia from Triple-A Memphis on Monday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
After a brief absence due to a case of right forearm tightness, Brebbia was activated from the disabled list Aug. 19 and optioned to Triple-A. Brebbia demonstrated his health at Memphis by piling up 10 strikeouts in 5.2 innings over his last five appearances, earning him a return trip to the big club. He'll likely fill a low-leverage role in the St. Louis bullpen throughout September.
Brebbia (forearm) was activated from the disabled list Sunday and optioned to Triple-A Memphis.
Brebbia wound up spending slightly more than the minimum 10 days on the disabled list with a forearm issue. He logged one rehab appearance with the Redbirds on Saturday, allowing an earned run on a hit over one inning while recording two strikeouts in a loss to Round Rock. The 28-year-old will report to Memphis for now, though he figures to return to the big club when a fresh bullpen arm is needed or when rosters expand Sept. 1. He owns a 3.83 ERA and 45:13 K:BB across 40 major-league innings this season.
Brebbia (forearm) was "super pleased" with a Wednesday bullpen session and expects to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis over the weekend, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
The right-handed reliever was just placed on the disabled list last Friday with his forearm issue, but it appears he's headed for a quick recovery. Brebbia may only need one minor-league rehab appearance before being deemed ready for activation.
Brebbia was placed on the 10-day DL retroactive to Monday due to right forearm tightness, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Though the Cardinals announced that Brebbia was sent down to Triple-A Memphis earlier in the week, the club changed the transaction to put him on the shelf instead. St. Louis has yet to offer up a timetable for his return, but he will be eligible to come off the DL on Thursday.
Brebbia was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.
Brebbia will head back to the minors to clear a spot on the active roster for Tyson Ross, who was recently claimed off waivers by the Cardinals. The 28-year-old owns a respectable 3.83 ERA and 40:13 K:BB across 40 innings of relief with the big club this season, so he should be back in the majors when a fresh bullpen arm is needed.
Brebbia was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Saturday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Brebbia will be available out of the bullpen for both games of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs. Across 27 appearances with the Cardinals this year, he's logged a 4.13 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 36 strikeouts in 32.2 innings of relief.
Brebbia was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, Rob Rains of Stlsportspage.com reports.
Brebbia will journey down to the minors with the return of Luke Gregerson (shoulder, elbow, knee) and Tyler Lyons (elbow) from the disabled list. In addition, Luke Weaver was also optioned to Memphis for the time being. Across 27 appearances with the Cardinals this year, Brebbia has logged a 4.13 ERA and 1.22 WHIP.
Brebbia gave up a hit and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless 10th inning Friday to record his second save of the season in a 7-6 win over the Reds.
After Bud Norris blew the save in the ninth, the Cards immediately struck back for another run to set up Brebbia for his second career big-league save. The 28-year-old has been reasonably effective overall this season, posting a 3.66 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 20:5 K:BB in 19.2 innings, but all eight of the runs he's allowed came in a six-appearance stretch in mid-May, and that kind of volatility will likely keep him from a more prominent role in the bullpen.
Brebbia struck out one and allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk over one inning in a loss to the Pirates on Friday.
Brebbia has had a rough go of it lately, as Friday's appearance marked his fifth over the last six in which he's allowed at least one run. That's led to an unsightly 7.20 ERA for the 27-year-old over 10 May innings. Brebbia has also surrendered two home runs during that stretch as part of the 12 hits he's allowed, making it a stark departure from the three scoreless efforts he generated during his first big-league stint last month 2018 last month.
Brebbia was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday.
Brebbia continues to travel back and forth between St. Louis and Memphis, and will be back in the major-league bullpen for Wednesday's game against Minnesota. In six appearances with the Cardinals in 2018, he's logged a 2.70 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 10 innings of relief.
Brebbia was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Sunday.
Brebbia will shuttle back to Memphis to open up a roster spot for Adam Wainwright's (elbow) activation from the disabled list. Brebbia figures to bounce between Memphis and St. Louis for bullpen reinforcement as needed moving forward.
