No one is selecting him in the R5 draft...if they do, shrug, they can have him. He isn't that good. If he was where was he in September?

As the original post said, he was injured during the final series of the year at the beginning of September.

Pulling this thread up... one has to wonder if QTC had not needed Tommy John - do the Brewers still deal for Claudio?

Based on his 2018 performance... I think he would have made the team.

Probably. The Brewers were seeking a proven matchup lefty, and Claudio fit the bill. Torres-Costa will likely get an opportunity at some point this season, but he hasn't proven anything outside of one year of albeit very good minor league numbers. He's a guy to keep an eye on to see if he can replicate those results in AAA this year.

From 2016-18 Claudio posted a 3.19 ERA in 197 IP against MLB batters with a 1.73 BB/9 (7th lowest), 0.41 HR/9 (8th lowest) & 63.7% ground ball rate (5th highest). He was a top 20-30 reliever by all of fWAR, rWAR & Win Probability Added.

As nice as QTC's 2018 was he went from 12.8 K/9 vs 3.8 BB/9 in AA to 7.9 K/9 vs 4.5 BB/9 in AAA. Guys with that type of performance dip following a promotion aren't typically promoted again, especially to a contending MLB club.
