Prospect Countdown: #37 Brandon Sisk

#37 Brandon Sisk
Position: LHP Age: 26 Height: 6-1 Weight: 210 B/T: L/L Acquired: Signed as a NDFA on 7/8/08 From: Palestine, TX
In 273 career innings Sisk has posted a 2.60 ERA. He's averaged 10 K/9 while allowing 3.4 BB/9. Of course neither of these rates are his most impressive. His most impressive ability, is the ability to keep the baseball in the ballpark. Sisk doesn't have a huge groundball rate, but it is strong. Sisk also induces an above average amount of infield pop ups. This season in Omaha, Sisk only allowed 0.28 HR/9 which compares extremely favorably to the 1.05 league average HR/9.

Sisk, pitched extremely well for Omaha and Northwest Arkansas in 2011. He should have an outside shot at winning a big league bullpen spot as a lefty specialist in 2012, although the odds are likely stacked against him. Instead he will likely pitch most of the year in Omaha providing the Royals quality bullpen depth in AAA.
