The Twins drafted David Bromberg in the 32nd round of the 2005 draft. He started last season giving up around 3.9 BB/9 but after the All-Star Break, he gave up only 2.7 BB/9, which was a considerable improvement. Unfortunately, while cutting down on his walks, he became very hittable. At this point, he reminds me a lot of a young Daniel Cabrera who had erratic control but good strikeout numbers (not so much the case with Cabrera anymore, at least the strikeout numbers). Bromberg lead all of the minor leagues with 177 strikeouts last season, even though he was nowhere nearly as dominant as he was in 2007, that is outstanding for any level and a big reason for optimism. I like Bromberg a lot, I look forward to seeing him in Ft. Myers this season. He should fair well in the Florida State League.

He's still young but after having an overall successful season in Single-A Beloit, I expect him to be in High-A Ft. Myers this season.
