Mariners sign Reds castoff Kevin Gregg


Released by the Reds last week, veteran reliever Kevin Gregg has signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners.

Gregg was horrible for the Reds and also horrible for the Marlins last season, allowing 22 runs in 19.2 innings since the beginning of 2014.

He’s also 37 years old and wasn’t particularly great to begin with, but teams have always seemed to like Gregg more than his mediocre performance would suggest.  That’s how he’s racked up 177 career saves despite a 4.24 ERA and why he keeps getting chances despite posting a sub-4.25 ERA just twice since 2009.
