Jeriome Robertson Dead at 33 Killed in Motorcyle Accident

Jeriome Robertson Dead at 33

VISALIA, CA — We are sad to report that Jeriome Robertson, former major league pitcher for the Astros and Indians, whose 15 wins led all rookies in 2003, has died. He was 33.

The California Highway Patrol said Robertson was killed Saturday when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed.

Astros star Lance Berkman recalled Robertson’s success.

“When you play with someone a year, you remember them. It’s certainly a tragedy and what more can you say? It’s a bad deal,” Berkman said before Tuesday night’s game against Washington.

“He won 15 games for us. That’s what I remember about him that year. He was solid every time out. He made a big step forward in his development. Then we traded him and really he kind of dropped off the face of the earth,” he said.

Robertson pitched in only eight more games in the majors after getting dealt to Cleveland. He finished with a career record of 16-12 with a 5.71 ERA.
