Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 45 | Overall: 40

Brigham missed his junior season at Washington in 2013 following Tommy John surgery but rebounded to pitch his way into a fourth-round selection by the Dodgers the next June. The Marlins acquired him and fellow right-handers Victor Araujo and Kevin Guzman as part of a three-team, 13-player trade in June 2015, with Miami sending Mat Latos and Mike Morse plus cash to Los Angeles and a supplemental first-round pick to Atlanta. Brigham overcame shoulder and oblique injuries that sidelined him for parts of 2017 and '18 to make his big league debut last September.

Brigham earned his promotion to Miami by showing a consistent 94-96 mph fastball throughout the Minor League season, though his velocity dipped to 90-92 once he made it to the Majors. His slider has improved in recent years and often provides him with a solid second offering. He'll need to improve his changeup and use it more often to last in a big league rotation.

The Marlins gave Brigham four starts in September, but his future may actually be in the bullpen. After displaying the best control of his career last summer, he lapsed into overthrowing in the Majors and struggled to find the zone. He might have more success and see an uptick in stuff if he just focuses on his fastball and slider in a relief role.
