Williams also announced that Gray, who would have been eligible for free agency following the 2019 season, has agreed to terms on a 3-year contract extension through the 2022 season, with a club option for 2023.

Gray, 29, will be reunited with new Reds pitching coach Derek Johnson, who worked on the Vanderbilt University coaching staff when Gray pitched there from 2009-2011. Gray finished his career ranked second all-time at the school in wins (27) and fourth in team history in strikeouts (317). In 2011, he helped lead the Commodores to their first NCAA College World Series berth after finishing 12-4 with a 2.43 ERA.

In 2015, when he went 14-7 with a 2.73 ERA in 31 starts for the Oakland Athletics, Gray was an American League All-Star and finished third in the Baseball Writers' Association of America's Cy Young Award voting. He did not pitch in the AL's 6-3 win in the All-Star Game at Great American Ball Park.

A first-round draft pick of the Athletics in the June 2011 first-year player draft (18th overall), Gray is 59-52 with a 3.66 ERA in 146 career starts and 9 relief appearances and won at least 10 games in 4 of his 5 full Major League seasons. Last season he ranked third on the Yankees' staff with 11 wins, and he has posted a sterling 2.95 ERA in 4 career Postseason appearances, all starts (21.1ip, 14h, 12bb, 18k, 2hr).

Sanmartin, 22, in July 2015 was signed by the Texas Rangers as a non-drafted free agent. In his minor league career, he is 19-11 with a 2.68 ERA in 33 starts and 12 relief appearances with 177 strikeouts and just 28 walks in 205.0 innings pitched.

Long, 23, was selected by the Reds in the 12th round of the June 2013 first-year player draft. In his 6 minor league seasons he hit .272 in 457 games. In 2018, his first full season above Class A, he hit .261 in 126 appearances at Pensacola in the Southern League.

Reds, Raisel Iglesias Agree On 3-Year Deal

Righthander Signs Through 2021 To Avoid Arbitration

The Cincinnati Reds and RHP Raisel Iglesias have agreed to terms on a 3-year contract through the 2021 season.

 

The Cincinnati Reds and RHP Raisel Iglesias have agreed to terms on a 3-year contract through the 2021 season.

 

In June 2014, Iglesias was signed by the Reds to a 7-year contract through the 2020 season. That contract included provisions that allowed him to opt into arbitration following the 2017, 2018 and 2019 seasons.

 

"Raisel has been extremely reliable in our bullpen. He has also proven to be a very versatile pitcher, which we value highly," said Reds President of Baseball Operations Dick Williams. "This contract provides both sides with cost certainty and will allow David and Derek to focus on how Raisel can be utilized to provide the most value to the team."

 

Iglesias said, "This is a great opportunity. I thank the Reds for trusting me and believing in me. Cincinnati is my second home, and I wanted to take this step."

 

Iglesias, 28, has posted a 2.97 ERA in 184 career appearances with 64 saves in 72 chances (89%). Following the 2017 season, he received the Johnny Vander Meer Award as the Reds' Most Outstanding Pitcher in voting of the Cincinnati chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. He is 1 of only 6 Reds pitchers to record at least 28 saves in more than 1 season, and over the last 3 seasons Iglesias' 24 saves of more than 1.0 inning are the most by any reliever in the Major Leagues.

 

In 2018, Iglesias over 66 appearances produced a 2.38 ERA and a career-high 30 saves in 34 chances. He was 1 of only 11 pitchers in the Major Leagues with at least 30 saves and among the National League pitching leaders ranked fifth in both saves and games finished (57). The Reds went 42-24 in games in which he pitched, the staff's best winning percentage (.636).

 

Also last season, Iglesias pitched 18 times on consecutive days, tying Jared Hughes for the most on the staff, and a team-high 5 times pitched on 3 consecutive days.
