Name: Tim Brennan
Born: Dec 18, 1996 in Philadelphia, PA
High School: St. Joseph's
College: St. Joseph's
Ht.: 6'4" / Wt.: 200 lbs

Drafted in the 7th round (209th overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2018 (signed for $206,800)
A three-year starter with St. Joseph's, Brennan is a 6-foot-4, 185-pound righty who has posted a sub-3.00 ERA each season in the Atlantic 10 Conference. This spring, Brennan has lowered his WHIP below 1.00 for the first time in his collegiate career, and while he's not a prolific strikeout arm, he managed a ridiculous 84-to-5 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 88.2 innings of work. That gave him the best walk-per-nine rate of any division one arm in the country, as well as the highest strikeout-to-walk ratio at 16.8. Where Brennan's performance is among the best in the 2018 class, his stuff is more fringe-average across the board, with a sinking fastball that sits in the 88-91 mph range and is up to 93, as well as a slider and changeup. Brennan will have to get by at higher levels by spotting his pitches precisely and to both sides of the plate--which he's capable of--but a 38.2 inning stretch in the Cape Cod League last summer showed what could happen against better hitters. Brennan posted a 3.96 ERA over seven starts with Yarmouth-Dennis and allowed more than a hit per inning, though he still had an impressive 31-to-8 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
