Berg hopes to follow in the footsteps of such past college closers from low arm slots as Chad Bradford, Pat Neshek and Darren O'Day in becoming a future big leaguer from a low slot. However, college baseball history is littered with many more submariners who have not lasted long in pro ball. Berg as among the most accomplished relievers in college baseball history, setting the single-season (24 in 2013) saves record while racking up 48 career saves entering regional play. He also is the all-time appearances leader for a pitcher. Just 6 feet, 194 pounds, Berg attacks hitters with impeccable command of an 83-85 mph fastball with all kinds of sinking, running life. He also throws a slider with Frisbee lateral action and locates it as well. He's a cerebral pitcher but lacks then velocity of pitchers such as Neshek and O'Day. His track record and being a senior likely will get him drafted, perhaps in the first 10 rounds.
