Reds designate for assignment Kevin Gregg

It’s unclear why the Reds used 37-year-old Kevin Gregg in late-inning, high-leverage situations for most of the season, but they’ve come to their senses and designated him for assignment.

Better late than never, but before being dropped Gregg went 0-2 with a 10.13 ERA in 11 appearances, allowing 12 runs in 10.2 innings spent mostly as a setup man for Aroldis Chapman.

Gregg also had a 10.00 ERA in 12 appearances for the Marlins last season, so this could be the end of the line for the right-hander after 13 seasons, 177 saves, and a 4.24 ERA for six different teams.
