Mariners Claim Jeff Gray

The Mariners claimed Jeff Gray off of waivers from the White Sox, according to Larry Stone of the Seattle Times (on Twitter). The White Sox designated the right-hander for assignment earlier in the week. Seattle has yet to announce a corresponding move.

Gray, 29, had pitched 13 1/3 innings for the White Sox this year, with 4.7 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9. He has a 4.36 ERA with 5.7 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9 in 53 2/3 career innings with the Athletics, Cubs and White Sox.

Can he hit?

Always the lame jokes when minor players change places about “World Series here we come!” or whatever. So old. 

Anyways, the White Sox are probably wishing they just DFA’d Tony Pena instead. I think they chose Gray under the belief he’d make it through waivers.

 More arms, never a terrible thing, does depend on the corresponding move however

His k to bb ratio is terrible but it was good when he was in Oakland which suggests that he should thrive in Seattle.  He’s not terrible but he’s not great, typical average joe reliever.

Disappointed that Cortes went down instead of Wilhelmsen.
