 The 2019 season will mark Gercken's 5th season in professional baseball, 1st with the X's.

Gercken was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 17th round of the 2015 MLB Draft following a stellar career at the Academy of Art University (San Francisco, CA), where he set single season records during his senior year for ERA (2.90), strikeouts (79), opponent batting average (.206), shutouts (2), and innings pitched (96.1).

Gercken has enjoyed his best professional seasons pitching for the New Jersey Jackals of the Can-Am League in 2017 and 2018. Gercken led the team in appearances (43) in 2017, which included a stretch of 16 consecutive appearances without yielding a run. He finished the season with a 2-2 record and a 2.70 ERA. Last season, Gercken was just as impressive, posting a 2.08 ERA and a 2-2 record in 30 appearances.
