The Arizona Diamondbacks have sold the rights of right handed pitcher Brad Bergesen to the Chunichi Dragons. The Dragons play in Japan’s Central League and will welcome the 27-year-old who has appeared in 102 games for the Diamondbacks and Baltimore Orioles.
Bergesen has a 4.61 ERA in the major leagues to go along with a 1.39 ERA and a 19-25 record.
Claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks, Bergesen appeared in relief for 19 games last season. He had a 3.64 ERA during his stay with the Diamondbacks.
His age makes a return to the major leagues possible.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Justin Upton might have been the most discussed Diamondback on the internet and in the winding Opryland hotel hallways as the winter meetings officially opened Monday, but he was not the most popular D-back in trade discussions, general manager Kevin Towers said.
Towers would notto go there. Trevor Bauer? Gerardo Parra? It is not fair to speculate, and...
I've been after a Trevor Bauer auto for quite some time, as he's one of the best prospects to ever come out of my Alma mater, UCLA. While I really wanted his signature, I wasn't after just any Bauer John Hancock. I've had one in mind since first seeing it and becoming aware of its existence, and after many months, I finally took the hard-signed plunge into the blue...
Before we start diving into each team we need to go over some ground rules. When you view each team’s table you will notice some players that are no longer with the team. In fact, some players were gone before last season even ended. The goal for this particular episode is to show the players that garnered the most innings at each position for each team. The idea is to look at...
Much of the offseason trade speculation involving the Arizona Diamondbacks has centered on right fielder Justin Upton.
But sources told FOXSports.com late Monday that the team has had at least as much trade dialogue in recent days about outfielder Jason Kubel.
Kubel spent his entire career in the American League until signing with the Diamondbacks before this season, and he would...
Aaron Hill re-broke out with his 2012 performance for the Arizona Diamondbacks. After two very disappointing seasons, he really put it together, establishing himself once again as a top second baseman. He only hails to Brandon Phillips in all of the NL; but at this point, he should be ranked ahead of the likes of Dan Uggla, Neil Walker and Chase Utley. He had an...
We have a new, crazy rumor in relation to Justin Upton. The Phillies and Diamondbacks are reportedly discussing a swap that would send Upton to the Phillies for oft-traded starting pitcher Cliff Lee (and likely, a giant pile of cash as well). The prevailing logic is that the Diamondbacks would then move Lee to another team in exchange for the shortstop they desire. Other sources...
Update, 4:59 pm: D’Backs beat reporter Nick Piecoro chimed in just after the initial wave and reports that the trade talks are “off base.”
According to a tweet Pedro Gomez of ESPN, the Phillies and Diamondbacks are discussing a Justin Upton for Cliff Lee swap. However, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports writes Arizona is not actively seeking this deal...
