Jake Brentz Promoted to Altoona

By Jason Shetler

The Pirates are promoting pitcher Jake Brentz to the Altoona Curve, this according to the Bradenton Marauders’ Twitter account. 

Brentz was acquired by the Pirates from the Seattle Mariners in September of last year as a player to be named in the Arquimedes Caminero deal. 

This season for Bradenton, Brentz had posted a 3.81 ERA, but was more dominant with things that were in his control, with a 1.81 Fielding Independent Pitching and a K/9 of 11.4 in 19 relief appearances. A few weeks ago, I did a post on how the Pirates return in the Caminero trade could be a potential steal for them, with the way Brentz has performed this year, as well as how good Pedro Vasquez has pitched in the Marauders rotation currently.
