The Los Angeles Dodgers don't just give money away. Well, maybe they do. They just don't do it with everyone. The team released Kevin Gregg yesterday after he had been reassigned to the minors. Gregg was signed to a minor league contract with a chance to make the Major League roster out of spring, which he did not.
According to Ken Gurnick, the Dodgers made the move yesterday. They club had to make a decision on Gregg's future, and they chose release despite Gregg's impressive spring.

Gregg posted a 0.82 ERA over 11 appearances during Cactus League play. However, that was not enough for him to make the 25-man roster. This is less about Gregg and more about the overflow of talent the Dodgers have. They have too many starters at their disposal, and they have too many relievers at their disposal. So Gregg was let go.
Gregg is a 10-year veteran and will find work elsewhere. He pitched for the Baltimore Orioles last season and in 2011. In his career, he's pitched for five different teams during the regular season. In that time, Gregg has posted a 4.13 ERA.
