BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Not the Grammy-nominated bluegrass musician, David Bromberg is a pitchability guy who led the Appy, Midwest, and Florida State Leagues in strikeouts, but whose performance has leveled off at upper levels. A line drive broke his ulna, requiring surgery and costing him three months of 2011.
2011 David Bromberg has gained a reputation as a battler on the mound, which isn't surprising for someone who earned a spot on the 40-man last year despite having lingered on the draft board until the 32nd round in 2005.
2010 Over the last three years, Bromberg has led the Appalachian, Midwest, and Florida State Leagues in strikeouts. On the surface, that makes him sound like some kind of overpowering monster, but in reality, he's a pitchability guy, just like most of the Twins' arms. His fastball is average to a tick above, but his delivery has a lot of arms and legs in it to help create deception, and he's willing to use his solid breaking ball and changeup at any point in the count. His big body is built to eat up innings, so put out an extra helping or two when he comes to dinner, but don't expect a flamethrower.
2009 Despite a ton of strikeouts in the Midwest League, David Bromberg isn't terrifically stuff-y, and doesn't figure to be despite his youth. He has the durability to start but needs to develop more pitches to stay out of the pen.
2008 In a system filled with precise control artists, Bromberg, a raw power arm, is the exception. A 32nd-round pick in 2005, Bromberg has yet to pitch in a full-season league, but he took a major step forward in 2007, winning Appalachian League Pitcher of the Year honors. His best pitch is a low-90s sinker, and his height makes the pitch even more difficult to hit because of the added downward angle. He's still got a long way to go when it comes to command and secondary stuff, but scouts are intrigued by him.
