Player Profile: Tyler Bremer

Taken in the 27th round of the 2012 Major League Baseball draft out of Baylor University, Tyler Bremer has bounced around throughout the first three years of his professional baseball career.

Bremer, a right-handed pitcher, stands six-foot-two, filling out at around 210 pounds.

Tyler was taken by the Chicago Cubs with the 824th pick in that 2012 draft. He pitched Baylor to victory in the elimination game over Oral Roberts his senior season. Tyler followed that up with his longest career outing in the deciding game of the Super Regionals—nine scoreless against Arkansas, who would beat Baylor 1-0 in 10—for a chance to travel to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska.

His final college game put an exclamation point on a fine senior season, finishing the year 7-1 with a 2.61 ERA in 15 games. Bremer started nine, pitched 58 2/3 innings, and struck out 50 while walking 14. He only threw 30 innings as a junior.

Upon entering the professional ranks, Bremer debuted in the Arizona Fall League before his subsequent promotion to the Boise Hawks of the Northwest League, playing alongside familiar name Kris Bryant. He gave up runs in both leagues initially before finding his groove. Bremer would get the ball in bigger situations, including working three innings and getting the victory in come-from-behind fashion over the Yakima Bears in the semi-finals of the Northwest League playoffs.

The current Miami Marlins’ product has only had a brief stay with each team he’s been with professionally, a stop with each team for no more than 43 games in a season between 2012 and 2015. He was traded to the Marlins in 2014 to fill their need of pitching depth, and figures to make it as a reliever, particularly middle relief.

Though his career to this point is that of a minor leaguer, he has slowly but surely ascended the ranks. From starting out with Boise and Daytona in 2012, to the Double-A Southern League where he pitched for the Jacksonville Suns and finally the Pacific Coast League of Triple-A where he pitched for the New Orleans Zephyrs in 2015, Bremer looks to stand out against stiffer competition.

He saw limited 2015 action pitching across three leagues in the Marlins system, but pitched effectively, accruing a 1-3 record with a 1.95 ERA between the Jupiter Hammerheads of the Class-A Advanced League and Jacksonville and New Orleans in Double-A and Triple-A ball respectively.

Tyler has been evaluated by scouts as aggressive. He has the ability to strike out batters based off average velocity and deception, and he features a great curve. His fastball hits 87-91 on the gun.

Heading into 2016, Bremer will look to capitalize on his 2015 promotion to Triple-A, and perhaps his time in the Major Leagues isn’t too far off in the future.
