5/10/19:Broad shoulders with an athletic frame at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds. Simple delivery with an average leg kick to the low-chest, landing on-line and square. Average extension. Fastball ranged 87-91, holding his velocity through 5 innings of work. Velocity was consistent in the stretch as well. Straight, works to halves with average feel for location. Does have the ability to finish hitters in with the fastball. Lacked any type of movement. Slider allows fastball to play up. Hitters have to respect and expect the slider to have a chance. Everything works off the slider, thrown with a unique grip. Slider is hard and late, looking like a fastball until it explodes across the zone or down, with depth, through the zone. Slider ranged 81-85, sitting 82-83. Has the ability to create the movement he wants based on the hitter. Swings and misses on the slider in the zone and out of the zone. Leans on the slider to finish hitters and when runners are in scoring position. Change-up comes out of the hand with some stiffness at 79-82. Some deception in the hand speed. Change has fade and created some swing and miss out of the zone to left handed hitters only. Good feel for the game, controlling the short game and run game in the start. 1.25 to home on fastballs with runners on 1B. Profiles as a bullpen arm with an out pitch in the slider. Fastball may play better out of the bullpen, but Brnovich advances as far as the slider takes him. (B Hall)

6/29/18: A 2018 semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award, Brnovich did not disappoint against Chinese Taipei. He was the winning pitcher, striking out four during his two inning appearance. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound righty dominated opposing hitters with a hard, big breaking 82-85 mph slurve. His ability to manipulate, repeat and command the pitch allowed it to play up to a plus, swing/miss offering. Worked mainly 90-92 with his fastball, occasionally driving it downhill into the bottom of the zone. The third pitch was an average to above-average changeup thrown at 83-85 mph with FB arm speed. It too, generated swing/miss. His arm action and the effort in his head jerk delivery profile him to the bullpen, yet he has three-pitch starter stuff and control. Scouts don’t care for how he does it, but they certainly like breaking ball and the analytics love the strikeout rate; during the 2018 spring season, he averaged 12.6 SO/9 IP. Brnovich looks to be a potential early round selection in the 2019 draft. (Seifert)
