Brad Brach picked up by surging Mets

The New York Mets have signed Brad Brach

Fantasy Impact

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 lit up by Pirates on Monday

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.

Fantasy Impact

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 agrees to deal with the Cubs

Brad Brach and the Chicago Cubs agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Brad Brach blows save against Colorado

Brad Brach allowed three runs, none of which were earned over 2/3 of an inning in a loss to the Rockies on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

With interim closer A.J. Minter getting the night off, Brach had a chance to close the game for his new club. But the veteran reliever did not take advantage of the opportunity. Brach is still worth owning though but only in leagues that count holds.

Brad Brach gets traded to the Braves

The Baltimore Orioles have traded reliever Brad Brach to the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact

It’s not yet known what the return is, but with Baltimore out of contention they had no reason to hold onto the impending free agent. Brach won’t close in Atlanta, so the biggest fantasy impact from this deal is that Mychael Givens is now the presumed closer in Baltimore. Of course, he could get traded himself soon, but for now is an obvious pick up for fantasy teams needing saves.
