Brewers' Drew Rasmussen: Picks up first career win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen (1-0) allowed a hit and a walk in a scoreless inning and struck out two to earn the win Friday versus the Royals.

Rasmussen worked the fifth inning right after the Brewers took a 6-4 lead in the bottom of the fourth. The solid performance gave Rasmussen his first career major-league win. He has a 2.13 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 14 strikeouts in 12.2 innings across nine appearances in a low-leverage role.

Brewers' Drew Rasmussen: Comes through in key spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen threw two scoreless innings of relief in the Brewers' loss to the Cardinals in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader.

The Brewers used their top relievers in the first game of Monday's twin bill, which gave Rasmussen the chance to pitch in a key spot in the nightcap. He got the job done, keeping the Cardinals off the scoreboard despite entering the game with runners on first and third and no outs. Rasmussen allowed just one runner to cross home plate over his last 8.1 innings, and on the heels of Tuesday's performance he could find himself working in higher-stress situations more often.

Brewers' Drew Rasmussen: Bounces back in third appeaerance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen threw two scoreless innings and finished Friday's 9-1 victory over the Pirates. He did not allow a hit, struck out two and walked one.

Rasmussen was tagged for two earned runs over 1.1 innings in an Aug. 22 loss to the Pirates, but he has sandwiched scoreless two-inning outings around that since earning his first trip to the big leagues. The Brewers have used Rasmussen only in mop-up duty thus far, but he is finding his footing in the bullpen and bringing the heat, averaging 97.9 mph on his fastball -- a mark that ranks in the top 10 in the league.

Brewers' Drew Rasmussen: Electric in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen made his big-league debut Wednesday against the Twins and struck out three batters over two innings of relief.

Rasmussen's fastball is his calling card, and he wasted no time showing it off, striking out the first batter he faced -- Miguel Sano -- on a 99-mph heater and averaging over 98 mph with his four-seamer over his two frames. Rasmussen started in the minors last year but has undergone Tommy John surgery twice, so he figures to work solely in relief in 2020, and could remain there next year and beyond. Even if he does, though, he has the arm talent to be a factor in fantasy leagues at some point.

Brewers' Drew Rasmussen: Joins major-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen's contract was selected by the Brewers on Thursday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Rasmussen made a strong case to make the major-league roster during spring training and summer camp. He was left off the Opening Day roster, but he'll get ready to make his major-league debut as part of the Brewers' pitching staff. The right-hander posted a 3.15 ERA and 96:31 K:BB over 74.1 innings in the minors last season. Despite his solid results in the minor leagues, Rasmussen has never pitched above Double-A and could experience some growing pains against higher-level competition. Rasmussen served mainly as a starter in the minors and could take Eric Lauer's place in the rotation after he was optioned to the alternate training site Thursday.

Brewers' Drew Rasmussen: To open at alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen is expected to begin the season at the Brewers' alternate training site, but he could still make his MLB debut this season, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

As Haudricourt notes, the hard-throwing righty still needs development. He has never pitched above Double-A and had an 11.4 percent walk rate at that level last year. Rasmussen's upper-90s fastball could earn him low-leverage chances as the Brewers cycle in fresh relievers this season.

Brewers' Drew Rasmussen: Included on initial roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen will attend summer camp with the Brewers.

The Brewers optioned Rasmussen to the minors in early March, but he will get another shot to make the cut. Rasmussen's season will likely begin at the Brewers' alternate training site, but his inclusion among the team's initial 45-man roster suggests he could make his major-league debut in 2020 even if he does not break camp with the big club.

Brewers' Drew Rasmussen: Reassigned to minor leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday.

Rasmussen spent a few weeks with the big club this spring, but that was mainly to get him some opportunities against top competition, and he was destined to begin the season in the minors anyway. It remains to be seen which level he will open at and whether he will work as a starter or reliever, but he has the stuff to pitch in the big leagues in some capacity, and he'll boost his chances of doing so sooner than later with a quality campaign.

Brewers' Drew Rasmussen: First camp with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen is pitching with the big-league club for the first time this spring and has thrown two scoreless innings thus far.

Rasmussen is one of the Brewers' more intriguing prospects, given that he was a first-round selection in 2017 -- he ultimately did not sign that year -- and throws a 99-mph fastball. He started in the minors last year, but he was limited to no more than 4.1 innings in a game coming off two Tommy John surgeries, so it remains to be seen if he will stick in that role. Should he end up in relief, though, his heater should be enough to get him a shot at the top level at some point.
