Luke Gregerson Undergoes Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

Posted On: Jun 12, 2018   |   Posted By: MLB Trade Rumors

Cardinals reliever Luke Gregerson is already on the disabled list due to an impingement in his right shoulder, but MLB.com's Joe Trezza tweets that Gregerson also had arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn right meniscus yesterday. He'll be out for at least an additional four to six weeks following that procedure.
Signed to a two-year, $11MM contract this offseason, Gregerson has been limited to just 8 1/3 innings so far in 2018. He's been hit hard in that time, yielding eight runs on eight hits and three walks with eight strikeouts.
While he's never been a flamethrower, Gregerson's average fastball was sitting at just 87.8 mph in his limited 2018 sample - a decrease of nearly two miles per hour from last season's average of 89.5 mph. To his credit, Gregerson's 16.7 percent swinging-strike rate was actually the second-best mark of his career, and his 60.9 percent ground-ball rate remained considerably ahead of the league average for relievers .
