Werner was an undrafted free agent who got his start in professional baseball by spending two years in the independent Frontier League. He signed with San Diego as a 24-year-old in 2011 and put up a 3.23 ERA in 136.1 innings split between Low-A and High-A. He has spent most of 2012 in Double-A, receiving a promotion to Triple-A in late July. He has continued having success in the upper levels, with a 3.70 ERA in 126.1 innings. Werner is making his major league debut, so there is no PITCHf/x data available for him. From what I was able to find, he throws in the upper 80′s and mostly survives on strong command.
