D-Backs Sell Bergesen To Chunichi Dragons

The Diamondbacks have sold Brad Bergesen to Japan's Chunichi Dragons, the team announced today in a press release. It was previously reported that the D-Backs released Bergesen to allow him to pursue the opportunity overseas.

Bergesen, 27, pitched 29 2/3 innings for the Diamondbacks this past season, posting a 3.64 ERA with 5.5 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9. He would have been arbitration eligible for the second time, but had been a non-tender candidate with a projected salary of $1MM.
