2015 All-Eastern Kansas League - 1st Team

10/5/14 - Brennan improved 60-yard dash time to 6.84 at workout at Johnson County CC.

6/18/14 - Brennan is a 5-foot-11, 165-pound left-hander pitcher.  He showed a simple, balanced delivery built to repeat and throws with clean, quick three-quarters arm action.  His fastball worked in the 80-84 mph range with arm side sinking/glove side cutting action.  Brennan also showed a 64-65 11/5 breaking ball, that, at times, was late breaking and effective.  He sells his 73-74 change-up well and it dies away from right-handers bats.  In the game he attacked the zone initiating early contact and rolled through nine batters in just 19 pitches with the only blemish being a first pitch home run on a rolling breaking ball.  We first saw Brennan last October when he topped out at 79 mph with his fastball, now touching 84 - he’s trending in the right direction.

6/18/14 - Brennan is a 5-foot-11, 165-pound left-hand hitting outfielder.  During outfield evaluations he showed quick feet, clean exchanges and a quick arm throwing from a high three-quarters slot.  He threw as high as 85 mph.  At the plate, he has a balanced set-up and slightly open stance.  He uses a fluid hand load and controlled, inline stride.  Brennan has an easy, simple swing with balance throughout and an overall middle-oppo approach.  His top exit velocity mark was 88 mph.  He ran a 4.17 home-to-1B from the left side.  He’s improved in all areas since attending our winter underclass event.  In the games, Brennan with 1-for-3.

4/1/14 - Working three and one-third innings of relief for the Tigers so far this season Brennan has allowed only two hits.  He replaced Ryan Cyr for Blue Valley with two outs and the bases loaded in the sixth inning.  On three pitches - a 79 and 80 mph fastball that tailed away from the right-handed hitter causing a swing and a miss then finished off the hitter with a 72 mph change-up working out of the jam. In the seventh Brennan pounded the strike zone with an 81-82 mph fastball and showed good command and feel for a 63 mph breaking ball and 72 mph change-up fanning four of the five hitters he faced while surrendering one hit.

2/17/14 - The 5-foot-11, 165-pound lefty really stood out on the mound this fall at our Underclass Prospect Games event throwing a very high percentage of strikes and showing advanced feel for his off-speed pitches.  On Monday, he wasn’t nearly as sharp, however he did make a velocity jump throwing all ten fastballs in his bullpen at 82 mph, up from the fall when he topped out at 79.  He has an athletic delivery with good balance and rhythm.  His arm action is simple and clean and he throws from a ¾ slot.  As a Class of 2016 product, he was the youngest Kansas high school pitcher at the event.

2/17/14 - Brennan is an athletic 5-foot-11, 165-pound left-hand hitting outfielder.  As a Class of 2016 prospect, he was the youngest of the Kansas HS outfield group.  During the outfield defense part of camp he showed quick feet and exchanges and a very accurate arm with a top throw clocked at 85 mph using clean arm action from a ¾ slot.  During batting practice he showed a tall, balanced set-up with a slightly open stance, takes a controllable inline stride while using a simple hand load.  He has a level bat path, good balance throughout and a mostly middle-oppo line drive approach.  His exit velocity registered as high as 86 mph and he ran a 4.34 home to 1B left-handed.  Brennan’s camp velocities and times are trending in the right direction, making improvements in all areas since the October Underclass Games.

10/19/13 - Brennan was the top 2-way prospect in the camp.  The 5-foot-10, 155-pound athlete does everything easy and has advanced feel for the game as both a left-handed pitcher and left-handed hitting centerfielder.  On the mound, he has a simple, efficient delivery and loose arm.  Brennan made quick work of his one inning on Saturday.  Showing no fear, he attacked the strike zone against an older, very physical portion of the Black Team line-up. After surrendering a lead-off hit he flashed some athleticism in turning a 1-6-3 double play and ended the inning with a strikeout. His fastball registered 78-79 mph with good feel for a mid-60 mph breaking ball.

10/19/13 - The 5-foot-11, 155-pound Brennan was the standout 2-way player at the event.  As mentioned in the class of 2016 pitching recap from the event Brennan makes playing baseball look easy as both a left-handed pitcher and left-hand hitting centerfielder.  At the plate he has loose hands and a simple swing built to produce line drives in the middle of the field.  He showed excellent balance throughout his swing.  Forecasting a future role as a lead-off batter at the next level, he hit first in game 1 for the Red team and reached base 3 times going 2-for-3 with a walk and stolen base.  His exit velocity was clocked at 79 mph and ran a 4.52 home to 1B time.  In the pre-game defensive evaluations he used quick fee, clean exchanges and a long, clean, over-the-top arm action to make one accurate throw after another.  His throwing velocity was clocked at 84 mph.  He has the tools and skill set of a good all-around baseball player right now with the chance to emerge as one of the best in the 2016 class.

8-15-2018:Strong bodied outfielder with plus speed as best tool. Ironically, runs loud for being a plus runner. Ran a 4.17, 4.22 and a 4.26 down the line. Good base stealing instincts. Good hands with a natural feel to hit. Puts ball in play with a flat swing. Struck out just 17 times in 154 plate appearances (11%) this summer. Well below average power production due contact-oriented approach less than average bat speed. Sound defender with left field type of arm strength. (Seifert)
