Mariners' Bergman to start opener at Nationals

WASHINGTON -- It is amazing what leaving Denver can do for pitchers and their confidence, not to mention their ERAs.

That appears to be the case for Christian Bergman, who is slated to start on the mound for the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday at Washington in the first of a three-game interleague series against the first-place Nationals.

Bergman posted ERAs of 5.93, 4.74 and 8.39 from 2014-16 in his first three seasons in the majors with the Colorado Rockies. Last year he appeared in 15 games, including one start.
