Where are they now? Bullpen

This list was done in Season 13 and here is a "where are they now" update on the Top 5

1. Bernie Pena Burlington – IntlFASea12 – Proj: 87 – ETA: Season 14 –

Then
Late season IFA steal for the Coat Factory that should join one of the league’s best teams in the next season or so. Stamina should allow for spot starts, but the bullpen is the home for this late season IFA steal.

Now
Season 16 all star traded to Cincinnati in the offseason. Best long reliever in the game.

2. Randall Scott Anaheim – DraftSea13Rd1 – Proj: 82 – ETA: Season 17 –

Then
The first reliever taken in the Season 13 draft, the flamethrowing righty has a chance to win multiple Fireman awards and close for any team in the league. Hall of Fame potential .

Now
Two time minor league all star may never reach his full potential. Should join the ML team this season.

3. Tomas Mesa Los Angeles – DraftSea10Rd1 – Proj: 84 – ETA: Season 14 –

Then
NL AAA Fireman of the Year winner should make his mark next season for the ML squad. Good stamina for either long or short relief duties, but should excel as a closer for the Hollywoods.

Now
32 wins and 11 saves in three ML seasons. Career 3.26 ERA and a mainstay in the LA bullpen.

4. Adam Tucker Charleston – DraftSea10Rd1 – Proj: 79 – ETA: Season 14 –

Then
This ML ready talent should ease into the Closer role for the Chews next season. All-Star talent.

Now
77 for 87 career ML saves. Traded to San Juan in the offseason to anchor one of the best teams in the game.

5a. Rafael Telemaco New Britain – DraftSea11Rd1 – Proj: 83 – ETA: Season 14 –

Then
This former Tar Heel could make it to the bigs next season in a long or short relief role, although the Red Coats seem to be bringing him along slowly. His impressive career stats should translate well to the ML level, whenever he gets there.

Now
Has not produced as expected. A career 4.59 ERA, he could use a change of scenery (Durham maybe?).

5b. Bert Throneberry Pittsburgh DraftSea9Rd1 - Proj. 85 - ETA: Now -

Then
Made his debut in the Season 13 playoffs, and hopefully will be able to recover from the shelling he took at the hands of the Tropics. Outstanding temper, patience, and makeup to go along with average splits and a lack of a quality #2 pitch. Regardless, should have a long career closing for the Partymen.

Now
Season 14 all star with 15 wins and 85 saves. A mainstay at closer for the Partymen.
