Position: Pitcher

DOB: June 4, 1996

Height: 6’1″ / Weight: 180

Bats: Right / Throws: Right

40-man roster: No

How acquired: Drafted (21st round, 2017)

Profile: Selected by the Brewers in the 21st round of the 2017 Draft following his junior season at Dixie State College of Utah, File signed with the Brewers and was sent to Helena in the Pioneer League to begin his professional career.  Working as both a starter and a reliever at Helena, File is a strike thrower with a fastball that sits in the low-to-mid-90’s.  He can get himself into trouble when he leaves the ball up in the zone, and the home run ball was a problem for him in his first season, but he has good poise and a mature mound presence and isn’t afraid to challenge hitters.

2017:  File opted to pass up his senior year of college to sign with Milwaukee and the Brewers sent him to Helena to make his pro debut.  He saw action in 12 games there, starting seven of them, and went 1-2 with a 4.02 earned run average.  File struck out 37 while walking just 13 and finished the year with a WHIP of 1.36.
