Brad Bergesen headed to Japan to play for Chunichi Dragons

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.
