Jimmy Herget

29-Year-Old PitcherRP
Los Angeles Angels
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Herget tallied half of the Angels 16 saves after Los Angeles traded Raisel Iglesias to Atlanta last year. The 29-year-old was spectacular all season, but really shined after the trade with a 1.10 ERA and 0.83 WHIP over 32.2 innings. He finished second on the team with nine saves while adding seven holds across a career-high 69 innings (49 appearances). The right-hander was effective with three of his four pitches, particularly his curveball and slider, but his 91 mph sinker was crushed (.397 BA, .603 SLG) and he threw it far less often as the season progressed. Herget figures to be in the Angels' mix for saves again in 2023, but manager Phil Nevin returns this season and often called his number during high leverage spots earlier in games. Double-digit saves are possible, but don't count on Herget as your primary saves source, as Los Angeles could still add to this bullpen. Read Past Outlooks

Notches another save Friday
PLos Angeles Angels
October 1, 2022
Herget picked up a save against Texas on Friday, striking out two batters in a scoreless inning of work.
ANALYSIS
Herget tossed nine of 12 pitches for strikes in the outing and fanned a pair for his ninth save. The right-hander has recorded three saves in the past four days and four since Sept. 20. Ryan Tepera has registered two saves in that span, but Herget looks to have a solid grip on the closer position for the remainder of this season and possibly into next.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Herget got his first taste of the big leagues in 2019, logging 6.1 innings with Cincinnati and allowing three earned runs. A closer during his first three seasons in the minors, Herget later transitioned to a setup role despite posting promising numbers at the Triple-A level. The right-hander registered a 3.17 ERA with Louisville from 2017-2019 while employing various arm angles and a funky delivery to average over a strikeout per inning. His best pitch is a sinker that sits in the low-mid 90s and is complemented by an above-average slider. Herget does struggle somewhat in the command department -- he posted a 5.57 BB/9 in Triple-A last season -- but he doesn't give up a lot of home runs and can handle the pressure of pitching with men on base. Herget was DFA'd by both the Reds and Rangers in the offseason but could still challenge for a bullpen spot wherever he ends up in 2020.
