Adam Bernero

June 9, 2006

The Phillies just signed a 29-year-old minor leaguer to help fill out their AAA staff. Bernero could probably pitch in the Phillies pen. In 2005, he struck out 7.09 per nine innings, and had a 3.08:1 k/bb ratio and a 4.03 FIP. Not great numbers, but servicable. He's probably better than Ryan Franklin who this season has a 6.69 FIP and strikes out less than 5/9 innings with a 1.56 k/bb ratio. These are the type of signings the team should be making. Low-risk moves to strengthen weaknesses and provide depth.
