Brad Bach (undisclosed) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Bach has yet to report to summer camp was placed on the injured list Wednesday. The reason Bach has been absent from camp is undisclosed, but it's possible that it could be COVID-19 related. Bach is will look to bounce back after a disastrous 2019 campaign. The 34-year old owned a 5.47 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 60:31 K:BB across 54 1/3 innings.
Brad Brach has not yet reported to camp.
Brach is not in line to close games, even with the Mets saying they are considering a closer-by-committee approach to open the season. His 5.47 ERA and 1.62 WHIP from 2019 shows that he probably won't sniff a fantasy roster this year.
The New York Mets have signed Brad Brach
Brach was released by the Cubs and will attempt to help solve the Mets’ bullpen woes. The surging Mets have won 13 of 14 and began Thursday only half a game back in the NL Wild Card hunt. The longtime Oriole had struggled for the Cubs in 2019, posting a 6.13 ERA and a WHIP of 1.765 across 39 2/3 innings pitched.
Brad Brach allowed three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two through 1.1 innings in Monday's loss to the Pirates.
Brach had been very solid in relief for the Cubs over the past week, posting a 0.82 WHIP over his past six appearances. He can fall back on the fact that every Cubs pitcher who took the mound Monday was pounded, as the Pirates racked up 23 hits.
Brad Brach and the Chicago Cubs agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal Thursday.
After splitting last season between the Orioles and Braves, Brach lands in Chicago where he may take on the closing role to start the season with Brandon Morrow out for at least the first month of the season. Brach closed out the 2018 season going 2-4 with a 3.59 ERA, 1.596 WHIP, 60 strikeouts, and 12 saves. We will see how the Cubs choose to utilize Brach as the season approaches.
