Prospect of the Day:  RHP Eric Arnett

Coming into the 2012 season, I had talked to a source who informed me that the Brewers’ player development staff had big expectations for right-hander Eric Arnett this season. The organization continues to tweak his delivery, but his recent work sparked explicit excitement.

Fast forward to the middle of the season, and the results have been rather mediocre. The 24-year-old has been working primarily from the bullpen and possesses a middling 3.24 ERA in a very pitcher-friendly Florida State League. He has fanned 45 batters in only 41.2 innings — though that has been paired with 23 walks.

Arnett’s biggest issue has been consistently retiring left-handed batters. His fastball-slider combination naturally lends itself to a severe platoon split, and we have certainly seen it this season:

vs. RHH:  .212 AVG
vs. LHH:  .288 AVG

His fastball is once again 91-93 MPH with some life, and he can spot his slider for strikes. If he cannot improve his changeup to the point in which it can be a consistent weapon for him against lefties, he has no chance of ever returning to the starting rotation. It seems the current plan is for him to remain in the bullpen. The club’s insistence on working him multiple innings, however, could keep his arm stretched out enough for a return to the rotation in 2013, if the Brewers have seen enough to warrant such a move.

    All I can ever think about when I see Eric Arnett’s name now is “if Teixeira had just signed with the flipping Orioles, we would have gotten Mike Trout”.

    Thanks a lot, Elias Sports Bureau!
