Bergesen on the bullpen
Brad Bergesen found out yesterday that he’s being moved to the bullpen, an assignment that looks to be temporary until the Orioles need a fifth starter on April 10.
Bergesen, who threw two innings at the team’s complex yesterday, said physically he feels good but he’s going to take advantage of his new assignment to get ready for the season.
“I’m taking it very positively and treating it like I have 10 more days to try and fine tune some things hopefully,” said Bergesen, who was removed from Friday’s start after being struck in the right forearm with a leadoff liner.
“But compared to last year, it’s just much more confidence in my arm strength. There was a lot of question marks going on in my head when I was out on the mound during the games and that’s not a good place to be, and that obviously showed last year. So that part is much more comforting. Everything feels good.”
