WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES
Bromberg signed with the Twins as a draft-and-follow. He was highly regarded as a prospect as he moved up through their system, but he got derailed by injury in 2011, after he’d made their 40-man roster. Prior to the injury, he threw a four-seam fastball that reached the mid-90s, as well as a two-seamer that ranged from 86-92. His best pitch was a curve and he had a developing change. He’s a flyball pitcher but hasn’t had significant gopher ball problems. The Pirates signed him to a minor league deal for 2013, with an invitation to spring training.
R: 3-3-0, 2.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 50.2 IP, 3.2 BB/9, 5.5 K/9
Bromberg had a good debut in rookie ball, although he didn’t fan many hitters....
