Brewer, undefeated in his prep career, joins Jason Jarvis and Cory Bannister (the youngest son of former big leaguer Floyd Bannister) in the Chaparral rotation and has helped the team win four straight Class 4-A Division I championships in Arizona. While Brewer was hitting .450 as a first baseman, he's seen as a pitcher by pro scouts and by UCLA, where he has committed to play in college. He has a lanky frame with wide shoulders and a prototypical pitcher's body, and he's shown the ability to keep his fastball down in the strike zone. Brewer's heater touches 90 mph, though he's not strong enough to maintain his velocity deep into games and pitches more at 87-88. He has good control and could have average or above-average command in the future. Brewer's curveball needs work (he's worked on the pitch under former big leaguer Steve Ontiveros' tutelage), and he's shown flashes of a good changeup, his best secondary pitch. He oozes projection and is considered signable as long as he's drafted early. Money is not expected to be a major consideration for Brewer, whose family lives in the same neighborhood as Yankees lefthander Randy Johnson, with whom he has thrown in the Big Unit's offseasons.
