Karson Milbrandt, RHP

The Miami Marlins 3rd round pick in the 2022 draft was high school pitcher Karson Milbrandt out of Liberty Senior High School in Missouri. After being drafted, Milbrandt only had one appearance last year with low A Jupiter. He started and pitched 2.0 innings and gave up 2 hits and allowed 2 runs.

This year he has started 11 games and over 47.1 innings he is posting a 5.89 ERA and 1.521 WHIP. Milbrandt has only allowed 4 home runs this year and has a high average of 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings but conversely, he has a high walk rate per 9 innings at 4.8 and has given up 47 hits in 47 innings. He has room to grow but he is only 19, so hopefully he can develop more control which will hopefully result in fewer hits and walks allowed.
