Patrick Charles Weigel (born July 8, 1994) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Career

Weigel attended St. Bonaventure High School in Ventura, California. He played college baseball at Pacific University for one year before transferring to Oxnard College. He was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 22nd round of the 2014 Major League Baseball Draft, but did not sign and transferred to the University of Houston.[1] After one year at Houston he was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the seventh round of the 2015 MLB draft.[2]

Weigel signed and made his professional debut with the Danville Braves.[3] In 14 starts for Danville, he went 0-3 with a 4.53 ERA. He started 2016 with the Rome Braves and was promoted to the Mississippi Braves in August.[4] He ended the 2016 season with an 11–6 record and a 2.47 ERA.[5] In 25 games (24 starts) between the two clubs, he pitched to an 11-6 record with a 2.47 ERA. Weigel started the 2017 season with Mississippi and was promoted to the Gwinnett Braves in May. The next month, he underwent Tommy John surgery and missed the remainder of the season.[6] He made four rehab starts in 2018. The Braves added him to their 40-man roster after the 2018 season.[7] Weigel split the 2019 season between Mississippi and the Gwinnett Stripers, going a combined 6–2 with a 2.73 ERA and 55 strikeouts over 63.1 innings. The Braves promoted Weigel to the major leagues on three separate occasions in 2019, but he did not appear in a game for them that season.[8][9]
