4. Robert Gasser, LHP
The left-handed pitcher had an ETA of 2023 but remained in the Minors as he continued to work on his craft. Robert Gasser arrived in Milwaukee as part of the Josh Hader trade in 2022, having been selected in the second-round of the 2021 draft by the San Diego Padres.
In 2023, he started 25 games for Triple-A Nashville and finished the season with a 9-1 record and a 3.79 ERA. He struckout 166 batters and had an average of .236 and WHIP of 1.28. Lefty starters are hard to come by and the Brewers have Wade Miley returning and Aaron Ashby still on his way back to full health. This may allow Gasser the step up and may see one of the three used in a reliever role.
His four-seamer has progressed to be in the low-90s along with his sinker, while his low-80s slider is his highest-rated pitch as it causes batters problems with it's horizontal movement. He also has a cutter and changeup in his arsenal that have decent movement over the plate.
Gasser is so close to becoming a starting option in the Majors and so it may not be long after the Spring Breakout that he is called up. Given the Crew's need for pitching depth, this breakout could help further his case for even an Opening Day roster spot.
