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)

PITCHf/x Pitcher Profile

A Collaboration between BrooksBaseball.net and Baseball Prospectus - Pitch classifications provided by Pitch Info LLC


Although he has not thrown an MLB pitch in 2014, Jason Bergmann threw 3,583 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2007 and 2010, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2010, he relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (92mph) and Curve (79mph), also mixing in a Cutter (85mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (93mph).
