Bromberg Is Apply League Pitcher of the Year

David Bromberg put a stamp on a breakout season on Friday, as the young right-hander was named Appalachian League Pitcher of the Year. Bromberg was a perfect 8-0 for the Elizabethton Twins in 12 appearances, and was the ace of the pitching staff.

David Bromberg was named Appalachian League Pitcher of the Year on Friday, putting an exclamation point on a breakout season for the young right-hander. Bromberg was dominant from the outset of the season, and carried that into being named to the highest honor of any pitcher in the Apply League. Next season, Bromberg will be asked to anchor a very good Beloit pitching staff.

Bromberg appeared in 12 games for the Elizabethton Twins this season, posting a perfect 8-0 record. He made 11 starts, racking up a league-high 77 strikeouts, and finished fifth in the league with a 2.72 earned run average at the time the honor was posted.

Bromberg also was able to rack up inning for the Elizabethton Twins, ranking seventh in the league with 56.1 innings of work.

This isn't the first time that Bromberg has raised eyes in the Twins Rookie League affiliates. Last season, Bromberg made ten starts for the Gulf Coast League Twins, posting a 2.66 earned run average. He finished first in the league with one shutout, and also was the league leader with two complete games. The right-hander also finished third in game started, and allowed only two home runs all season long. Recommended Stories
