Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 50 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 40

As a sophomore in 2014, Bergen earned two victories in four days to make Kennesaw State the first NCAA Division I team in 21 years to win a regional tournament in its playoff debut. A seventh-round pick by the Blue Jays the following June, he didn't allow a run in his first seven pro appearances before succumbing to Tommy John surgery that cost him most of his first two full pro seasons. He came back in 2018 to log a 0.95 ERA with 74 strikeouts in 56 2/3 innings, but Toronto chose not to protect him on its 40-man roster and the Giants grabbed him in the Rule 5 Draft in December.

Bergen lacks overpowering stuff but hitters from both sides of the plate rarely manage to barrel his pitches. His low-90s fastball plays much better than its velocity because his crossfire delivery gives it run, sink and deception. His slider/cutter acts as a solid second pitch at times, and he also has a changeup to keep hitters off balance.

Drafted by the Jays as a potential back-of-the-rotation starter, Bergen made up for losing two years to elbow reconstruction by developing quickly as a reliever. He's more than just a lefty specialist and San Francisco values his ability to miss bats. Rule 5 dictates that he spend all season on the Giants' active roster, or else they have to place him on waivers and offer him back to Toronto for half of his $100,000 Draft cost.
