Jake Brentz is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Kansas City Royals of Major League Baseball (MLB). He was drafted in the 11th round of the 2013 Major League Baseball draft by the Toronto Blue Jays.
A year after posting a 3.66 ERA, a 49 percent grounder rate, and a 27.3% strikeout rate in 64 innings out of the Kansas City bullpen, Brentz was looking to expand on that success in his second Major League season.
Despite a 13.3 percent walk rate that was among the poorest in the league and only average hard-contact percentages, the team nonetheless managed to win the World Series.
Brentz was expected to play in a setup position or even make some saves this season, but he’ll likely be used in low-leverage situations when he returns from the IL and proves his worth.
Brentz’s 2022 season has already been a disaster, and this latest setback only adds to the woes.
This pitcher has surrendered multiple runs in four of his eight appearances and has surrendered 10 runs in the final 1 1/3 innings of his most recent performance.
Brentz pitched to six Yankees batters without recording an out in his most recent outing, and he was removed from the game after allowing five runs (four earned). Brentz has a terrible 23.63 ERA after just 5 1/3 innings.
