Organization Prospect Rankings
During a season-long bullpen breakdown in Chicago, many relievers were called but few stuck around. Wasserman might have been the least likely of those who did. An undrafted college player who was signed out of a tryout camp, he earned his way to the big leagues by succeeding at every level in the minors. He's a strike thrower who gets deception from a sidearm delivery, using his fearlessness to overcome a lack of velocity. Wasserman relies on a high-80s sinker and a curveball that ties up righthanders. He held righties to a .174 average in his 33 big league outings but had trouble getting lefties out. Still, he managed not to allow a homer all season, getting batters to beat the ball into the ground. Pitching coach Don Cooper will spend spring training trying to better equip Wasserman to face lefties. Regardless, he's good enough against righties to earn a spot in the White Sox bullpen.
