Teams looking for priority senior signs to stretch their budget could pop Brasher, a former member of Samford's rotation who shifted to the bullpen as a senior after repeated control issues. Brasher walked 147 in 176 career innings, including 30 in 33.2 innings this season, but his stuff also took a leap forward this year. He's reached 98 mph, at times sitting 93-96, and he's flashed a hard slider in the mid-80s consistently, at times up to 88 mph. Area scouts have seen Brasher, a physical 6-foot-1, 200-pounder, struggle to throw strikes for years, but his undeniable arm strength needs pro instruction to see if it can be harnessed.
