Andrew Brackman signed

It is official, Andrew Brackman has signed with Cincinnati Reds. Here is what I found earlier today. “The Reds today signed Moeller High School graduate RHP Andrew Brackman to a 1-year contract through the 2012 season.” [Source] “The Reds made official Wednesday the signing of RHP Andrew Brackman. It is a one-year Major League contract.” [Source] “We’re going to try to refine his delivery to improve his command and control,” Jocketty said. “If he can do that, he can be successful. We have good pitching coaches that should help him quite a bit.” [Source] Jamie Ramsey also included the Cincinnati Reds Hot Stove Notebook in his Better Off Red post.

Although Andrew Brackman only played in 3 games for New York Yankees in 2011 I thought we would talk about his pitches and how well he did in that short period of time.

His at-bat results were a little off but with such a small sample size it is hard to be to judgemental of his ability. 23% flyout, 23% walk, 15.38% field error and 15.38 groundout.
