Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that reliever Kevin Gregg is throwing a showcase in Tempe, Arizona for about 15 teams in an attempt to garner a contract. It is believed that if all goes well, Gregg is expected to sign shortly thereafter.
Gregg, 36, had bone chips in his elbow removed in August and reportedly feels great. The right-hander allowed 10 runs in nine innings, between June 19 and July 13, for the Marlins last season. The 12-year veteran was effective the year prior, however, as he finished with a 3.48 ERA in 62 innings for the Cubs.
Starter Kyle Freeland has been placed on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to April 19) due to a blister on his left middle finger, the Rockies announced. Tyler Anderson was activated from the 10-day injured list and will start Monday night against the Nationals.
Freeland, 25, posted a 4.23 ERA with a 30/10 K/BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings across five starts to open the 2019 season. In his most recent start, the lefty tossed six shutout innings against the Phillies but wasn’t able to go out for the seventh inning due to the blister.
Anderson, 29, made two starts before left knee inflammation sidelined him. He has thus far yielded 11 runs on 18 hits and three walks with five strikeouts in nine innings.
