Drafted in the 4th round (109th overall) by the Baltimore Orioles in 2004 (signed for $310,000)
Bergesen jumped a level on most draft boards this spring by throwing his fastball consistently in the 90-93 mph range, while touching 95. He's similar to San Jose State righthander Matt Durkin because he can dominate a game with just his fastball, though that will prove more challenging at a higher level. He maintained his velocity deep into games. He dabbled with a sinker and slider but didn't show consistent command of either pitch as he went 9-0, 0.47 with 93 walks in 60 innings. At 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, he's a workhorse with a fierce competitive side. Some teams have the University of San Diego signee in the first five rounds, but most see him in the sixth- through 10th-round range.
