Grimm was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Grimm joined the Mariners on a minor-league deal in late July after being released by the Royals. The 29-year-old allowed 19 runs over 12.2 innings with Kansas City and will likely serve as a long reliever out of the Mariners bullpen.
Grimm (shoulder) was placed on the minor-league disabled list after signing a contract with the Mariners on Wednesday. Grimm was recovering from right shoulder impingement syndrome prior to his release by the Royals in early July. The right-hander was added to the roster at Triple-A Tacoma upon his signing. Across 16 appearances with Kansas City in 2018, he logged an ERA of 13.50 and 2.45 WHIP with an 8:14 K:BB in 12.2 innings of relief.
Grimm (shoulder) was released by the Royals on Saturday, Maria Torres of The Kansas City Star reports. Grimm missed time with both shoulder and back issues this season, and he allowed 19 runs over the 12.2 innings he was able to pitch. His career ERA sits at 5.02 after 351.1 innings, so he's unlikely to generate a ton of interest as a free agent.
Grimm (back) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday. Grimm is finally back with the Royals after spending more than a month on the shelf with lower-back stiffness. He made nine rehab appearances with Triple-A Omaha before being cleared to rejoin the big club, posting an 8.68 ERA but striking out 13 batters across 9.1 innings of work. Grimm, who compiled a brutal 21.86 ERA prior to landing on the DL, should slot back into a middle-relief role now that he's healthy. Trevor Oaks was sent to the minors in a corresponding roster move.
Grimm was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with lower-back stiffness. It's unclear when Grimm picked up the injury, but it could help explain his recent struggles. Over his last five outings, Grimm has allowed 16 runs over just 2.2 innings of work, walking eight batters while striking out just two. He'll get some time off to recover, though it's unclear when exactly he'll be ready to return at this point. In the meantime, Eric Stout was recalled from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move and will take Grimm's spot in the bullpen.
