by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Friday.

Grimm was released by the Brewers in September of 2020, but he'll now report to Triple-A Tacoma early in the minor-league season. The right-hander made four major-league appearances last year and posted a 17.36 ERA and 2.79 WHIP in 4.2 innings.

Justin Grimm: Released by Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm was released by the Brewers on Tuesday, Andersen Pickard of reports.

Grimm has given up nine runs in 4.2 innings of work this season. He had a similarly-poor 10.38 ERA in 17.1 innings in his previous big-league stint back in 2018, so he's unlikely to be a hot commodity on the open market.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a callous laceration on his right index finger.

Grimm suffered the injury during Wednesday's loss to the Twins and will miss at least 10 days as a result. Angel Perdomo was added to the roster in a corresponding move and should take Grimm's spot in the bullpen for the time being.

Brewers' Justin Grimm: Leaves with finger issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm was removed from Wednesday's game against the Twins with an apparent injury to his right index finger, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Grimm had an awful outing, giving up four runs on three hits and three walks while recording only two outs on 38 pitches before exiting the contest. The veteran right-hander will be unavailable for a couple days due to the pitch count, regardless of the severity of the injury.

Brewers' Justin Grimm: Officially added to roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm's contract was selected by the Brewers on Tuesday.

The move confirms reports from over the weekend that Grimm had made Milwaukee's Opening Day roster. He'll likely fill a low-leverage role, as his last big-league time came back in 2018, when he allowing 20 earned runs in 17.1 innings while walking more batters (14) than he struck out (11).

Brewers' Justin Grimm: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm has made the Brewers' 30-man roster, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

He has not yet been officially added to the 40-man roster, but the Brewers have multiple players on the COVID-19 injured list, which gives them a few open spots on the 40-man. Grimm is expected to pitch primarily in low-leverage situations.

Brewers' Justin Grimm: Invited to Brewers camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old will receive an invitation to big-league camp as part of the deal. He's not particularly likely to win a job this spring, as he didn't pitch in the big leagues last year and had a 10.38 ERA in 17.1 innings at the major-league level in 2018.

Reds' Justin Grimm: Acquired by Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds acquired Grimm from the Dodgers last week in exchange for cash considerations.

Grimm attended spring training with the Indians on a minor-league pact but was unable to win a spot on the Opening Day roster, prompting his release. He quickly latched on with the Dodgers on another minor-league deal and accrued a 5.66 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 41.1 innings with Triple-A Oklahoma City before the organization shipped him to Cincinnati. He'll continue to pitch out of the bullpen at the Triple-A level for the Reds' International League affiliate in Louisville.

Dodgers' Justin Grimm: Signs with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Sunday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Grimm quickly found a new home after opting out of his deal with the Indians last week. The veteran right-hander will join the Dodgers in Anaheim for the team's exhibition Freeway Series and is a candidate to break camp in a long relief role. He spent time with the Royals and Mariners in 2018, struggling to a 10.38 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 11:14 K:BB through 17.1 innings.

Justin Grimm: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm elected to opt out of his minor-league deal with the Indians on Wednesday, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The Indians informed Grimm earlier in the day he would not make the team's Opening Day roster, and he decided to utilize the opt out rather than head to the minors. The 29-year-old performed well this spring with a 1.04 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 9:4 K:BB over 8.2 innings. The veteran right-hander is now free to pursue opportunities elsewhere.

Indians' Justin Grimm: Won't make roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm was informed Wednesday that he will not be on Cleveland's Opening Day roster, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Grimm made it a difficult decision for the Indians, posting a 1.04 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 9:4 K:BB through 8.2 innings this spring. While Cleveland would prefer the right-hander to remain with the team on a minor-league deal, Grimm may want to exercise his opt-out in order to pursue other potential big-league opportunities.

Indians' Justin Grimm: Latches on with Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm signed a minor-league contract with the Indians on Thursday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

Grimm dealt with a shoulder impingement for a good chunk of the 2018 season and wound up posting an ugly 10.38 ERA and 1.94 WHIP across 17.1 innings with the Royals and Mariners. He should provide bullpen depth for the Indians in 2019.

Mariners' Justin Grimm: Outrighted to Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm was taken off the 40-man roster by being outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Grimm and fellow reliever Ryan Cook were each removed from the 40-man roster in order to clear up some space for younger prospects that need to be protected this offseason. Across 21 appearances between Seattle and Kansas City, Grimm logged a disastrous 10.38 ERA and 1.90 WHIP with an 11:14 K:BB in 17.1 innings.

Mariners' Justin Grimm: Makes way to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Justin Grimm: Inks deal with Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Justin Grimm: Released by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Royals' Justin Grimm: Back on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm was put on the 10-day DL due to right shoulder impingement syndrome prior to Wednesday's contest.

Grimm's placement was backdated to June 24, which means that he will be eligible to come off the shelf against the Indians on July 4. The reliever spent over six weeks on the disabled list due to lower-back stiffness before rejoining the Royals on June 12. After his activation, he appeared in six games, posting a 3.18 ERA across 4.2 innings.

Royals' Justin Grimm: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Royals' Justin Grimm: Close to rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm (back) threw a bullpen session Tuesday and is on the verge of going on a rehab assignment, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Grimm may wind up throwing a live batting practice session within the next couple days before heading out on a rehab assignment. The right-hander isn't expected to need a lengthy rehab stint, and could return to the fold sometime next week if all goes according to plan.
