Bruenning pitched for Grayson County Community College in 2008 and 2009.

Here’s Brett Bruening’s scouting report from MLBBB:

Bruening is a newcomer to Texas Tech this year, having transferred in from Grayson County CC for his junior year. A big, hulking arm, Bruening has found the transition to Division I ball to be pretty difficult, as he’s worked primarily in a swing role for the Red Raiders. The best way to describe Bruening is wild. He can hit 97 on the radar gun, but when he starts, he can’t throw strikes when he throws any harder than 90-92. His curveball can be wicked when he finds his release point, but it’s more common that it dives out of the strike zone well before it reaches the plate. However, the raw stuff is undeniable, and he has shown real flashes of dominance, and some scouts feel he’s getting closer to figuring it out. He was a 35th round pick of the Yankees a year ago, and he could easily go in the single digits this year if scouts are sure he’ll sign for below the cap in those rounds. He does have an injury history, having had Tommy John surgery in high school, but he seems to be durable now, and he’s a few years removed from the operation. Projected Draft Range: 7th-12th Round

RHP Pat Schatz (49th round):

Year era w-l app-gs cg sho sv ip h r er bb so 2b 3b hr ab b/avg wp hbp bk sfa sha

2009 4.96 1-2 20-0 0 0/0 1 45.1 46 40 25 33 29 5 0 3 179 .257 10 8 0 5 3

CSN:

Schatz was the primary righty out of the Iowa bullpen for three seasons. His 6.68 ERA was second among all Iowa relievers this season. He held left-handed hitters to a .214 average. He came to Iowa as a walk-on after Tommy John surgery.
