Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 40 | Control: 45 | Overall: 40

An effective three-year college starting pitcher at South Florida taken in the fifth round of the 2015 Draft, Herget found his home in the Reds system as a reliever and racked up 64 saves in his first three years. But in 2018 at Triple-A Louisville, he was employed mainly in a set-up role, pitching well enough to earn a spot on the 40-man roster.

Herget has an often deceptive three-quarters delivery that enables him to hide the ball well. Able to throw up to 97 mph, he can also keep hitters guessing by changing arm angles and tempo or shortening his stride. Unless he develops his below-average and seldom-used changeup, he could have time managing left-handed hitters in the big leagues. He could temper that with by burying a backdoor slider in on lefties.

While he certainly has the mentality to be a big-league closer with a delivery not unlike Steve Cishek or Kent Tekulve, his stuff projects as a likely better fit as a middle reliever or right-handed matchup specialist. Herget doesn't walk a lot of batters nor he is victimized much by the long ball, and he is capable of racking up strikeouts.
