RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Adam Bernero.
Bernero's stuff caught the eye of Bobby Cox in spring training, and after a hot start with the Braves (2.08 ERA in April) there was even talk about him taking over the closer role. However, Bernero's inability to keep the ball in the park and his walking too many batters led to his release in September. He'll try to win a job in the Kansas City bullpen, but there's not much upside considering Leo Mazzone couldn't work miracles with his live arm.
Bernero was acquired by the Rockies for Ben Petrick in mid-July last season. That trade symbolized just how fed-up with Petrick the Rockies had truly become. Pitchers with career ERAs of 5.00+ and WHIPs in the 1.45+ range don't generally fare all that well in Coors (or anywhere else for that matter), especially undrafted, right-handed ones. Bernero is exactly the type of 'extra arm' the Rockies need for those 15-14 shootouts at Coors; a cheap, innings-eating hurler who's expendable.
Before you totally write him off based on last year's final numbers, keep in mind that he was pretty good in five of his first six starts before the league caught up with him. He needs to change speeds and be precise with his location to be effective, and his stuff is below average, but we're not going to totally dismiss him just yet. That established, we're not going to bid on him, either -- watch his progress from afar, and then make a move if you see improvement.
