Padres reliever Luke Gregerson has drawn quite a bit of interest over the past few weeks. But he will apparently finish out the season in San Diego.

As first reported by Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM and then confirmed by MLB.com’s Peter Gammons, the Friars have decided to hang on to Gregerson and are probably done trading altogether.

Gregerson owns a 2.91 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 39/9 K/BB ratio in 43 1/3 innings this year and he’s held right-handed batters to a .189/.241/.293 in five total major league seasons. The 29-year-old will be arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter.

The Pirates and Red Sox were said to be “sniffing on” the right-hander when this day began.

    It appears that NBC will not be trading Craig Calcaterra. There were rumors that ESPN was sniffing around him, but the rumor has been shot down by Jon Heyman.

      I’ve tried for three days to comment on that, but Heyman has blocked me on Twitter.
