2015 Short-Season A Pitcher of the Year

2014 Winner: Trey Cochran-Gill (Harrisonburg 2012)

2015 Winner: Brody Greer (Rockbridge 2012)

Brody Greer Hillsboro 2015Our 2015 short-season pitcher of the year wasn’t even drafted, but he outperformed more touted prospects. Brody Greer was signed as a non-drafted free agent out of South Carolina Upstate in August of 2013, and two years later, he put up the best numbers in the Northwest League out of the bullpen for the Hillsboro Hops (the Hops?!?).

Brody finished the season 1-1, 0.83, with 5 saves, in 24 games and 32 2/3 innings pitched. He allowed only 14 hits and 14 walks in those almost-33 innings, so his WHIP was 0.86, and his BB/9 ended at 3.9, but with 51 strikeouts, his K/9 was a very high 14.0.

I’m very curious to see if Brody will be assigned to a full-season minor league team in 2016. Congrats!
