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.
