I've been thinking about this. What does "just as he has all season" really mean? Identical numbers or...For S&G's let's say that Brennan continues to perform just as he has all season. The OF defense immediately becomes the best in baseball when Kwan, Straw and Brennan are out there. The offensive improvement is significant as well. Brennan could/would become your 2 hole hitter effectively moving Rosario and his low OBP down in the order.
Less power because of stadium dimensions/baseballs/better pitching
Less walks because pitchers throw him more strikes
More strikeouts because pitchers are better
Fangraphs projections have him at .261/.318/.361 which really just factors all this in. The good thing is that it's still a 95 wRC+ which if he is able to defensively handle his position will put him in good position to provide some solid value for his ball club as a starter in the bottom part of the order.
This is a team that was throwing out Mercado and Zimmer a year ago and don't get me started on Miller, so hell I'll take that triple slash.
