BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Nothing could convince the Nats to bring Jason Bergmann back after he pitched his way off the team in April, so he'll be in Boston's camp as a non-roster invitee.
2010 Having been unsuccessful in a variety of roles over the last several seasons, Bergmann is likely on his last legs with the Nationals organization. He is a poor starter, having compiled the second-lowest SNWP of any pitcher to make 20 or more starts over 2008-09, and despite average rates in the controllable skills group (walks, strikeouts, and the like), he is not a world-beater in the bullpen either; his relief-only FRA in the same span is an uninspiring 4.29. He isn't awful if used sparingly from the back of a roster as a swingman, but Bergmann represents the type of pitcher that should be kept around while under team control and dismissed when arbitration makes for raises beyond his value. There just isn't enough here to merit a guaranteed roster spot, let alone a well-defined role on a pitching staff.
2009 Bergmann made the squad out of spring training, but after giving up 12 runs in his first two starts they handed him a quick ticket back to Ohio. He returned a month later after Chico came up lame, but was finally dropped from the rotation for good in September. Attrition was the only reason he stuck in the rotation even that long, and if you see him starting in 2009 that will probably be the reason once again.
2008 Bergmann's move to the rotation worked in that he delivered 11 quality starts (one blown) in his 21 tries despite losing time to injuries to his pitching elbow and hamstring. Still, his struggles with lefties make you wonder if the Grim Reaper and Max von Sydow are standing over his shoulder, watching to see which pitch comes to a messy end. Then again, maybe we're in an age in which big platoon splits are survivable in the rotation. Bergmann struggled in the second half, but it wasn't because people were loading up on spot starts for bench lefties; those guys mostly don't exist any more, their roster spots having been taken by the extra men in the bullpen. As a fairly extreme fly-ball pitcher, Bergmann is going to have an especially hard time with the team's move to a park with shallower power alleys.
2007 Bergmann`s projection depends on how much you`re willing to overlook to see the promise of a big guy with three quality pitches. In a mop-up relief role, Bergmann got thoroughly crisped, allowing 64 baserunners in 34 innings (not including five free passes). Tried out as a starter, he got belted around five times and posted a quality start in the second game of a double-header. The Nats need players who can do anything, but the problem here might be one of having a guy who could do anything, but needs to be asked to do something, which is a wee bit more specific. He throws in the low-90s, and both his slider and curve fool people; given some direction, he could settle into a useful career.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given Manny Acta's limited options, is he going to stick with Joel Hanrahan at closer after his awful start, or is he going to give a guy like Jason Bergmann a shot (a failed started with good stuff and health issues)?
(Peeig13 from The Second City)
This is my darkhorse for the Nationals' closer: Kip Wells. His results have never matched his stuff as a closer and a lot of times many pitchers who fit that profile wind up being good closers for a time. Eric Gagne is a prime example. (John Perrotto)
