One of the best to ever come through Biloxi, closing Pitcher Nate Griep is now a part of the Colorado Rockies organization.
Today, the all-time saves leader of the Shuckers was taken in the Rule 5 Draft, closing the books on his record setting career on the Gulf Coast.
The Grim Grieper posted 56 saves during his time in AA Biloxi, 22 of those coming in his 2019 All-Star season.
Overall, the right-handed Griep closed out 109 games in four years with the Milwaukee Brewers organization, but never made his way to the Big League club.
Griep was originally an eighth round selection out of Kansas State in the 2015 MLB first player draft.
Other Shuckers players lost to the Rule 5 Draft are right-handed Pitchers Jordan Brink and Michael Peterson, as well as Catcher Bryan Torres.
