How acquired: Free Agent (June 21, 2017)

Profile:  Signed by the Brewers as a free agent after going undrafted out of Missouri Baptist, Nunn was sent to Maryvale for his first season in Milwaukee’s system, working out of the bullpen for the AZL Brewers.    With a fastball that sits in the low-to-mid-90’s, Nunn struggled to throw strikes at times during his collegiate career, but appeared to have many of those issues ironed out in his pro debut, walking just four batters over 28.1 innings of work.  At six-foot-four, Nunn has good size and as long as he can continue to command his stuff, should continue to get looks as a late-inning option.

2017:  Another of Milwaukee’s undrafted free agent signings in 2017, Nunn joined Maryvale in the AZL and turned into a reliable reliever there, going 3-0 with a 3.18 earned run average in 12 bullpen outings.  He struck out 31 batters in 28.1 innings and issued just four free passes.
