Not a lot of people might not know who John Brebbia is as he has bounced around the St. Louis Cardinals system before finally being non-tendered by the Cardinals in 2020. He’s really only had one good season that helped put him on the map in terms of relievers as he had a 2.44 ERA in 51.2 innings and held opponents to a .193 batting average while striking out 51.
He missed the 2020 season due to recovering from Tommy John surgery which he had the season prior which is another reason many probably don’t know his name. This might be why the Cardinals didn’t want to stick around with him and try to work with him after recovering from his surgery which the Angels could capitalize on if there are no other suitors for him.
While there isn’t much to go off of from him as he only pitched 3 season in the Major Leagues, he did post up some numbers in 2019 before his Tommy John surgery. He had an ERA of 3.59 in 72.2 innings pitched while holding hitters to a .212 average and getting 87 strikeouts.
