7/10/20:T here are some really good changeups in college baseball and Bierman has one of them. My first look at his cambio was in the spring of 2019 at Michigan when he was a freshman reliever for the Hooisers. Bierman closed the Friday night game and earned a save by pitching three perfect innings, striking out the final eight batters he faced. At that time, he featured a plus-plus 81-83 mph sinking changeup and an 88-90 mph fastball. Fast forward to the present with a 91-93 mph fastball and a continued impact changeup, he has also added a 77-81 mph breaking ball with a low-2400s spin rate to his mix. It’s a pitch that will flash above average on occasion, yet is still the third best pitch of his arsenal. His changeup spins in the 1600-1750 rpm range and has late, explosive action to his armside and good bottom when thrown to the middle of the plate. In the first inning he was flying open with his delivery, trying too hard to make the ball move, instead of just releasing properly and letting the pitch do its thing. He sells the pitch with very good arm speed and a similar release point to that of his fastball. His two-seam fastball showed arm side life and some sink at 90-91 mph, spinning in the low-2000s, while he elevated his four-seamer for some swing/miss. Overall, Bierman has the delivery, arm action, stuff and pitchability to be considered during the middle of Day Two next June. He currently checks in with ten strikeouts and a 0.00 ERA in 6.2 IP this summer.

9/15/19:�Additional impressive arms for Indiana included sophomore 6-foot-2, 180 pound righty�Gabe Bierman�who pitched with an easy 90-92 fastball, showing some natural cut and above average command. He didn’t throw his bread-n-butter plus-plus changeup too often as he did during�College Crosscheck Week 13, instead preferring to develop his third pitch slider, showing solid feel for the pitch at 82-83 mph. (Seifert)

5/11/19:�Closing out Friday's 10-4 victory was freshman righthander Gabe Bierman, who earned the save by pitching three perfect innings and striking out the final eight batters he faced. Bierman featured a plus-plus 81-83 mph sinking changeup and an 88-90 mph fastball. (Seifert)

3/30/18 Spring Scout Blog: Indiana commit went 3 innings in his first start of the season, sitting 86-87 with the fastball, commanded both sides of the plate, easy effort in delivery with clean, loose arm action. Pitched with good tempo, controlled delivery down the mound, lands slightly closed with closed front foot. Mixed in breaking pitch at 74-75, tight spin and break to miss bats. Changeup was arm side at 80, down. Finished with 2 ER, 4 Hs, 3 BBs, and 4 strikeouts.

7/11/17: Indiana commit. Currently ranked No. 14 in the Indiana Class of 2018 and No. 256 in the PBR Overall Ranks. 6-foot-2, 170-pound right-handed pitcher with an athletic frame. Works from a high ¾ arm angle with a loose, quick arm action. Full over head delivery with smooth tempo. Tall and fall delivery with a closed toe landing. Fastball sat 86-87 topping out at 89 mph for strikes. Struck out two in his inning of work. Showed good feel on the mound and filled up the strike zone.

4/19/17:  
SCOUT BLOG - The 6-foot-2, 175 pound right-hander, currently ranked No. 11 in 2018 class, sat 86-87 in the first two innings, settling in at 83-87 throughout the outing.  Fastball has slight run with command to both sides of the plate.  Slider has tight 10/4 shape with some depth.  Ability to throw it for a strike as well as a swing and miss pitch.  Change-up has some cut action with late depth at 80-82.  Calm demeanor on the mound with good feel for his delivery.  Arm swing is compact, loose, quick.  Firm front side with consistently good front leg bracing.  Finishes athletically.  Movement patterns predict a steady velocity increase as his gets stronger.  Indiana commit.

7/24/16: 
Indiana commit. 6-1, 160, another point-guard type athlete. Free and easy thrower, arm works, repeats. FB 80-85, lots of 84’s. Breaking ball 71-73, automatic strike pitch, repeatedly back-doored LHH with it, threw it for strikes more than his fastball, controllable pitch not swing and miss stuff. 76-78 sinking change-up, also effective vs LHH. More velo to come when he fills out his skinny frame.

6/5/16:
 The Indiana recruit was up to 85-86 early, settling in at 83-84.  Breaking ball was 71-75. Pitches from a high 3/4 slot with arm speed.  

October 2015: 2018 Indiana commit RHP Gabe Bierman of Jeffersonville HS 82-86, 72 CB

5/27/15 GAME NOTESA freshman right-handed pitcher, he showed good projectability on the mound.  He possesses a slender frame with plenty of room to fill out.  He pitches from a 3/4 slot with good arm speed.  The fastball was consistently 85-86 throughout most of his 6 innings of work. He wasn't afraid to throw his breaking ball, which sat 70-73, though it was inconsistent at times.  When it was around the 73 mark, it was more of a slurvey pitch, showing tighter spin with more of a sharp break.  At other times it had more of a true curve ball shape with some depth.  The breaking ball still needs refined overall, tendency to get on the side of it, but showed promise of being a good pitch.  Bierman is a high follow in the 2018 class.
