Bust out the sunscreen, Luke Gregerson, you’re going to sunny San Diego. And just in time for Spring Break, too!
As part of their trade for shortstop Khalil Greene, St. Louis sent the right-handed pitcher to the Padres on Monday. Gregerson was selected as the player-to-be-named in the December 4, 2008 deal, which initally sent right-handed pitcher Mark Worrell to San Diego. The Cardinals 2006 draft pick posted a 7-6 record with 10 saves and 3.35 ERA in 57 relief appearances for Double-A Springfield in 2008.
