Bernard ended the season 3-2 with 2 saves and a 3.83 ERA over 35 appearances this season. He logged 44.2 innings pitched for the Lumberjacks, striking out 65 guys compared to 17 walks. He and closer Vincente Venalde were the only two pitchers to average more strikeouts than innings pitched this season for the Lumberjacks. He and Orlando Pena were the only two guys on the entire staff to post a winning record this season, and Pena missed most of the season with an injury, only appearing in 6 games back in April.
Bernard will be a reliever the Lumberjacks will hope to take another step forward in 2043. His blazing fastball mixed with good stuff and ok control make him a pitcher that is prone to ups and downs. His low movement did allow him to give up 10 homeruns over those 44.2 innings pitched, which prevented him from possibly posting a better WAR this season and seeing more innings. At worst, Bernard will find himself a spot in the BBA for a decade as a Loogy man if need be.
