The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs announced the signing of right-hander pitcher Greyfer Eregua on Thursday afternoon.
The Venezuela native spent the first seven seasons of his professional career in affiliated ball, including five seasons in the Chicago Cubs organization. In his first six seasons of professional baseball he combined for a 3.01 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP, but would top out at the Advanced A level before breaking into the independent scene.
2019 was Eregua’s first non-affiliated stint, playing in both the Frontier League and the American Association, combining for a 5.49 ERA in over 62 innings as a swingman, appearing mostly as a starter.
“I’m happy to be part of this team and family. I’m so grateful for Stan and Courtney’s belief in me. My mission this year is to bring the championship to the Blue Crabs and give everything to help the team to win”, said Eregua.
