Jimmy Herget
26-Year-Old PitcherRP
Texas Rangers AAA
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Herget got his first taste of the big leagues in 2019, logging 6.1 innings with Cincinnati and allowing three earned runs. A closer during his first three seasons in the minors, Herget later transitioned to a setup role despite posting promising numbers at the Triple-A level. The right-hander registered a 3.17 ERA with Louisville from 2017-2019 while employing various arm angles and a funky delivery to average over a strikeout per inning. His best pitch is a sinker that sits in the low-mid 90s and is complemented by an above-average slider. Herget does struggle somewhat in the command department -- he posted a 5.57 BB/9 in Triple-A last season -- but he doesn't give up a lot of home runs and can handle the pressure of pitching with men on base. Herget was DFA'd by both the Reds and Rangers in the offseason but could still challenge for a bullpen spot wherever he ends up in 2020. Read Past Outlooks
