Thirteen fewer walks in 79 innings is kinda a big difference.

Oh, I'm very aware. I'm noting that it's literally the only difference between 2015 and 2016 for Brach. His BB/9 was the best of his career, but his other ratios were all the same. Too often, I feel, the Brach detractors here make it sound like last year came out of nowhere and that they need to flip him before he flops. But the guy has been fairly consistent on all other levels.

Seriously. I can't believe anyone is blowing this off like it's no big deal. It translates roughly to a 0.3 - 0.5 jump in expected ERA.

Good post sir.

I'll note that, even with all that said, I'm not against trading Brach in the right deal. I just don't feel there's any pressure to move him, for fear of him falling off the face of the planet. He's a very strong 7th inning arm (given that, with a healthy O'Day, the 7th is where we'll most often see Brach) that brings no shortage of value to the club. I'm personally a big fan of having a loaded bullpen. Especially given the state of the O's starting rotation.

So even if he regressed and walked at the same right, his ERA would jump to 2.52? Not exactly chopped liver.

Also, as an FYI, his BB/9 went up for ~2.7BB/9 in the first half to ~3BB/9 in the second last year. In 2015, it was 4.31.

Good points all the way around, but Jason Garcia has the same issue. People can develop pitches. Brach is not all that amazing. He had a REALLY dominate half a season. I think you (and MLB) are overestimating him. The time for trading him is now..but that is another point.

I'm not that high on Jason Garcia, or Tanner Scott for that matter.    As to Brach, I was careful not to call him elite, though he certainly was elite for half a season last year.    Without burdening him with labels, in three years with the Orioles Brach has a 2.61 ERA and carries a 9.6 K/9.    I don't feel Wright could "easily" replace that.  Yes he may improve, and make it to Brach's level if he's lucky, but it won't be easy.
