Kam Loe Signs with Mariners

 

Tuesday brings a report that former Brewers reliever Kameron Loe has signed a minor-league deal with the Seattle Mariners, and there are indications that he’s already in camp with the team.  Loe was plucked out of semi-obscurity by Brewers GM Doug Melvin back in 2010 and posted decent, if inconsistent, innings for the Brewers.  The right-hander intimidated on the mound with his huge six-feet, eight-inch frame and power sinker.  When he was on, he seemed to mow through batters without a problem.  That’s the way I’ll choose to remember Loe.  He was a guy that proved to be a convenient scapegoat, but his .363 average ERA over three seasons with the Brewers and ability to be a rubber arm out of the bullpen eating up innings were valuable.  Perhaps if he’d been used better, or performed a little more consistently, he’d still be in Brew City.  Good luck in Seattle, Mr. Loe.
