Right-hander reliever Brad Brach has been DFA’d by the New York Mets. While this isn’t a move that will kill the bullpen, it comes as a surprise. Especially with Jacob Barnes being without any MiLB options.
This move was made to free room up on the 40-man roster for the recently acquired Jonathan Villar.
In August of 2019, the Chicago Cubs released Brach and the Mets swooped in to sign him. In 16 games with the Mets that season, Brach pitched to a 3.68 ERA while striking out 15 in 14.2 innings.
He posted a 5.84 in the shortened 2020 campaign and struck out 14 batters in 12.1 innings pitched.
