Brody Brecht - Prospect Profile

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - March 18th: "Brechtís 19.1% career walk rate would represent a new high-water mark for college pitchers in the first round. Scouts believe his arm talent is enough to stomach it."

Joe Doyle - Future Star Series - March 18th: "He's been up to 101, sitting 97-99 in starts. It's a metric-monster and is only reinforced by the elite whiff rates he generates off the pitch. He'll mix in an absolutely disgusting slider with immense depth, inducing gaudy swing-and-miss numbers."

MLB.com - March 8th: "Brecht's fastball and slider are comparable to those of Skenes. He sits at 96-99 mph and touches 101 with his heater, which has explosive running action and superior shape to Skenes' fastball, though Brecht doesn't locate his nearly as well. All that said, his best pitch is a slider that parks at 87-89 mph and peaks at 91 with plenty of horizontal and vertical action."

Keith Law - The Athletic - March 7th: "Heís very athletic and he doesnít have huge effort in his delivery despite the velocity. Heís also far less advanced as a pitcher than the guys ahead of him, both in terms of the arsenal and in his feel for pitching, so itís like taking a high school arm in a college pitcherís body."

Kiley McDaniel - ESPN - February 23rd: "Brecht is in the conversation for the best raw stuff in the history of college baseball and has elite athleticism as a 6-foot-4 former Big 10 wide receiver, but his walk rates are just too high right now. His positive traits are so elite that he won't fall out of the top 20-25 picks regardless of that walk rate, but he'll easily go in the top 10 if he shows some progress with control."

Aram Leighton - Just Baseball - February 15th: "Brecht runs his fastball into the triple digits consistently along with one of the best sliders in the nation. Heíll need to prove that he can throw enough strikes to be a starter, and thereís hope that individually focusing on baseball for the first time in his career could result in more strikes and/or development of his changeup."
