If you were watching SNY when they were showing the backfields a few minutes ago and wondered who "Brantley" was, a quick Twitter search shows the Mets have signed pitcher Justin Brantley.

Michael's cousin, sort of interesting scouting report, and a short RHRP who had big success in A ball and then a bad partial AA season - and apparently released? 26 years old.

Brantley was absolutely awful in Indy ball last year but reportedly touched 94 in workouts pre-signing with the Indians and showed something of a decent slider. Why not?

He was solid 2014 and 2015. Undrafted out of college, but he's got a brother on the Indians, so that probably helped. 2016 he pitched 36.1 innings, gave up 34 walks and 46 hits. Ouch. (that's between AA and Indy-ball).

The articles say he's AA bullpen depth, that the mets are short there. (who knew?).

He's Michael (Brantley)'s cousin, not brother.

oops. Must have read the article wrong.

Still enough to help him get singed by the Indians though . . . I would think.

Jimmy Duff released At one point was quasi interesting (tall, local) but got bombed in St. Lucie, was demoted. I would guess there is a health component as well. We had him at #49 in the system pre-2016 season.

Duff was fun to read about. He apparently had a very odd delivery, bending over nearly to the ground while throwing, but he only got plus reviews his first year, after that - nada.

I looked but couldn't find a video of him pitching.

Found some photos. There's a crouch in there, not as pronounced as the article suggested.

I'd think a guy with his height (6'6") would pitch standing up and use his height.
