Jimmy Herget
27-Year-Old PitcherRP
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
Picks up first win
PTexas Rangers
September 27, 2020
Herget (1-0) allowed one run on one hit while striking out a batter through an inning of work Saturday as he earned the win against the Astros.
ANALYSIS
Herget replaced Kyle Gibson in the seventh and quickly gave up a double to Aledmys Diaz to begin the inning. The Astros were able to plate him on two sacrifices before Herget struck out Myles Straw to end the inning. The right-hander has a solid 3.20 ERA, but his 17:14 K:BB across 19.2 innings is a bit concerning as he appears to have some trouble locating his pitches.
