Kameron Loe signed a minor-league deal with Atlanta five weeks ago, but after a dozen terrible appearances at Triple-A the Braves have released the 6-foot-8 right-hander.
Loe struggled as a starter early in his career, but had a nice run as a reliever from 2008-2012 with a 3.61 ERA in 229 innings. Last season he was awful for the Braves and Cubs, and now at age 32 it looks like he might be nearing the end of the line.
He’s now been released by Atlanta and Kansas City this year while posting a combined 6.99 ERA and 20/10 K/BB ratio in 28 innings at Triple-A.
