Newly acquired reliever Kevin Gregg went up against the Marlins in arbitration on Monday, but lost. Not a bad way to start your career with your new employer – in court.
Gregg will now earn $575,000 this season instead of the $700,000 he was seeking in arbitration.
The Marlins acquired Gregg from the Angels for Chris Resop, and will look to land a spot in the bullpen. He could pitch in a set up role, long relief or even compete for the team’s vacant closer role.
Pitchers and catchers will report this Saturday, to Roger Dean Stadium to begin Spring Training.
