Drafted in the 11th round (329th overall) by the Minnesota Twins in 2019 (signed for $200,000)
Brubaker won the California junior college pitcher of the year award in 2018 at Saddleback (Calif.) JC and was drafted by the Rays in the 28th round. He transferred to UC Irvine rather than sign and put up a strong season as the Anteaters’ No. 2 starter this spring. Brubaker experienced a slight velocity bump and his fastball now sits 89-91 mph with the ability to ramp up to 94-95 mph. His looping curveball and changeup don’t excite evaluators, but they are competitive offerings that get the job done. Brubaker is strong and durable in his 6-foot-5, 220 pound frame, lasting deep into his starts and throwing strikes from start to finish. Brubaker lacks explosive stuff, but his physicality and track record have a select group of teams interested.
