Diamondbacks Claim Brad Bergesen

The Diamondbacks have claimed Brad Bergesen, Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus tweets. The Orioles called Bergesen up earlier this week, but designated him for assignment without having him pitch in a game.

Bergesen, 26, had posted a 4.03 ERA with 4.6 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 in 80 1/3 innings at Triple-A before getting promoted. He posted a 5.70 ERA with 5.4 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 101 innings a year ago, when the Orioles used him in a hybrid role as a starter and reliever. The Diamondbacks had an empty 40-man roster spot going into the day.

Should replace Shaw

Which means now he’ll pull a David Hernandez and be awesome.

I’m going to miss Brad.
I was hoping he would get one more spot start when called up.

Wish they could have pulled of a trade for Bergy. Would have gotten at least something in return.
