Ranked just outside the top-100 in Wisconsin’s 2021 class, Brinkman has consistently shoved all summer, and now it’s carried over into the fall. The 6-foot, 170-pound southpaw fills up the strike zone with low-80s stuff that is difficult to square up, seemingly, as he dodges barrels with every look. He pairs the fastball with a tight slider that he has advanced feel for. The spin rates here on both pitches support his ability to miss bats, and his strike-throwing traits could offer some upside at the next level, as he’s still uncommitted.

6-foot, 170 pounds; lanky levers. Short, loose arm action from a high ¾ slot. Owns the tempo, working at his own pace. Fastball sits 79-82 mph, touched 83 early, featuring some solid horizontal action, some late. Slider sits 73-74, short 1/7 action, 2,200 rpm.
