2022 Player Outlook
Ashby is one of the more highly rated prospects that the Brewers have and he got a taste of the bigs in 2021. In 13 appearances (4 starts), he posted a 3-2 record with one save, a 4.55 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and a 39:12 K/BB ratio across 31.2 innings of work. His slider posted a 42 percent whiff rate last season, and he posted an excellent 63 percent ground ball rate. Ashby could make a couple of starts for the Brewers last year, but barring a few injuries to the rotation, the majority of his innings figure to come from a relief role. He's got the strikeout upside to his game, and considering that he's an extreme ground ball pitcher, he should be fine in the home run department. He likely isn't a guy that you have to prioritize in drafts this season, but in deeper formats or NL-only setups, he could be a sneaky good ratio booster.
