Brown has racked up a ton of strikeouts this spring with Middle Tennessee State and finished the year with one of the best strikeout-to-walk ratios in the country. A 6-foot-4, 220-pound righthander, Brown posted a 3.99 ERA over 14 starts and 85.2 innings of work, while striking out 113 batters (11.9 K/9) compared to just 15 walks (1.6 BB/9). Among Division I arms with at least 50 innings pitched, his 7.53 strikeout-to-walk ratio was good for 10th best in the country. Some scouts had interest in Brown a year ago thanks to that pitching ability, and there’s no-doubt his numbers will intrigue teams again this year. Brown is a fastball/changeup pitcher who sits around 90 mph but has been up to 95 and throws his changeup in the 78-82 mph range. Both pitches have gotten a ton of whiffs for him this spring, but scouts are more skeptical about his ability to spin the ball. He’s thrown a slider and a curve, but both need work.
