Braves Bring Back Kameron Loe On Minor League Deal

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo is reporting that  the Braves have signed Kameron Loe to a minor league deal. This was after Loe was released by the Royals organization 2 days ago and after he failed to make the Giants roster out of Spring Training.

Loe didn't make an appearance for the Royals on the major league level this season, but he did have an ERA of 4.09 and a FIP of 6.01 in 7 appearances with the Omaha Storm Chasers. Last season, Loe in 21 appearances (including 1 start), Loe's ERA was 7.09, his FIP was 8.41, and his xFIP was 8.41. 9 of those appearances (including that 1 start) were with the Braves, and he had an ERA of 6.17, FIP of 5.19, and xFIP of 4.48, which was good for -0.1 fWAR.

Loe will be reporting to AAA Gwinnett as soon as possible. The bullpen on the major league level is already pretty deep at this point, so the minor league deal for Loe appears to be just that: A move for minor league depth. If it gets to a point where he has to make a spot start again like he did last year in September, then someone goofed.
