DET traded Soto to minor contract with veteran bullpen Shreve

Detroit acquires Shreve.

Fanside’s Robert Murray said on January 10 (Korean time) that the Detroit Tigers have agreed to a contract with reliever Chason Shreve.

According to Murray, Shreve will sign a minor league contract with Detroit that includes an invitation to spring training. It is a split contract that can receive up to $2 million, including incentives, if you rise to the big league roster.

Lefty Shreve, born in 1990, is a 9-year veteran of the big leagues. He made his big league debut with the Atlanta Braves in 2014 and went on to play for the New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Mets, and Pittsburgh Pirates. 메이저사이트

He pitched 311.1 innings in 317 games in 9 seasons, and recorded 21 wins, 12 losses, 38 holds, 2 saves, and an ERA of 3.87. He made six career seasons with an earned run average below 3, but last year was sluggish with the Mets with 25 games, 26.1 innings, 1 win, 1 loss, 4 holds, and an ERA of 6.49. After being released by the Mets last July, he signed a minor league contract with the Yankees, but never made it to the big leagues and left the Yankees after the season.

Although his pitching is somewhat unstable, he is a pitcher with strikeout abilities above the league average. He’s a slow pitcher, averaging just over 90 mph, but he’s good at striking out with the splitter.

Detroit traded closer Gregory Soto to the Philadelphia Phillies the previous day, weakening its bullpen. If Shreve gets out of last year’s slump, he can be of great help to Detroit’s bullpen.
