Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Brandon Eisert of the Buffalo Bisons.

 

The 24-yr-old lefty out of Portland, OR., has provided the Bisons bullpen with a somewhat reliable arm in the 2022. Pick in the 18th round of the 2019 Draft, Brandon started his professional career in 2021 as a member of the Dunedin Blue Jays. After just two appearances, Eisert moved up to Advanced-A Vancouver where he made 20 appearances with a 5 and 1 record and 4.05ERA. That was good enough for another move up to Double-A New Hampshire where he finished with a 1 and 0 record and 2.63ERA. In 63.1 innings, across three levels, Brandon finished with 19 walks, 82 strikeouts, and a 1.34WHIP.

 

Baseball America had this to say about Brandon Eisert in his Draft year:

 

Eisert has a solid four-pitch mix, enough that he could get a chance to start at the next level considering how he’s done this spring, but he might work best in a relief role where his fringe-average fastball, which touches 93, could play up. Eisert has a solid slider and changeup, and also throws a curveball that he can locate, but does more with control and command than by overwhelming hitters. Eisert’s collapses his lower half with drop-and-drive mechanics that includes a crossfire landing, though he hides the ball well which also allows his stuff to play up.

 

In 2022, Brandon Eisert has spent the entire season in Triple-A, making 24 relief appearances and 2 starts/openers. The lefty entered the game in the 3rd inning after Derek Holland was tagged for a two-run home run in the 2nd inning. Brandon cruised through the 3rd, strikeout, fly out, and groundout, throwing 14 pitches. In the 4th, Eisert sandwiched a flyout between a pair of strikeouts, finishing his outing with 3K.

 

Brandon has struggled a little of late, allowing 4 runs over 4.1 innings over 3 outings, pushing his ERA from 3.72ERA at the end of June to 4.28. In June, Eisert finished with a 3.38ERA and 1.22WHIP while holding batters to a .162BA and posting a 7/15 BB/K.

 

In 26 appearances this season, Brandon owns a record of 3-1 with a 4.04ERA, 47K in 35.2IP, and 1.18WHIP.

 

The Groshans and Martinez Show

Jordan Groshans

The 22-yr-old infielder manned SS, batting 2nd. He went 0-for-4 with a walk and two strikeouts. Over the past two weeks (11GP), Groshans has gone 12-for-41 for a .293BA with 3 doubles, 6BB, 6K, and 4RBI. In 56 games, Jordan is batting .270 with 8 doubles, a home run, 21RBI, and a .709OPS.

 

Orelvis Martinez

The 20-yr-old infield prospect played short, batting 3rd. Martinez went 0-for-4 with 4 strikeouts. They really need to send him to the FCL. Let him work on some stuff because clearly whatever he is doing isn’t working. The league is playing off his aggressive nature and making him look foolish. Over the past two weeks (10GP), Martinez batted .154 with 4 runs scored, 2HR, and 3RBI with 1 walk and 14 strikeouts. In 72 games, O is batting .210 with 19HR, 11 doubles, 48RBI, 6SB, and a .743OPS.
