Brassfield is a 6-foot-4, 190-pound lefthander with a great pitcher’s frame who showed loud stuff throughout the 2023 showcase circuit. He mostly pitches in the 89-92 mph range, but he has gotten his fastball up to 94. The pitch has solid life with carry and a tick of run to his arm side. His control with the pitch is a bit erratic. Brassfield does have a bit of violence in his delivery with a head whack and a fall off to the third base side, but he also provides impressive arm speed from a high three-quarters slot. His best secondary is a low-to-mid 80s slider that has short biting action and spin rates in the 2,400-2,500 rpm range. It is especially effective against lefthanded hitters. Brassfield threw a pair of changeups in his Area Code Games outing, both at 84 mph, and they looked like fine pitches, though it was tough to get a great read of how good the cambio truly is. He looks like the sort of pitcher who will throw harder in the future and already has a solid breaking ball to his name. Brassfield is committed to TCU.
