2019 Most Valuable Brewer #5: Josh Hader

The 2019 season was a bit of a mixed bag for Josh Hader. He entered as the Brewers' most dominant reliever, and was expected to keep that title throughout the season. While he did prove that he is still the most dominant reliever for the team, it didn’t come without some bumps throughout the season.

Hader’s season started off strong. In his first six games, he pitched nine innings, recording five saves. He allowed a total of three hits and two walks, along with no runs. He also struck out 15 of the 32 batters he faced. Whether it was a single inning or multiple inning appearance, he was nearly unhittable.
