T-Bones Sign Veteran Lefty Regas

April 18, 2014 - American Association (AA) Kansas City T-Bones

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - The Kansas City T-Bones announced they have signed left-handed pitcher Kris Regas to a contract for the 2014 season.

Regas, 34 (11-15-79), a native of Bourbonnais, Ill., who is 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds, spent the majority of the past three seasons with Lancaster and York of the independent Atlantic League. In 2013, splitting time between York and Lancaster, he went 1-2 with a 5.50 ERA in 23 appearances. In 354 career appearances during an 11-year career, Regas is 28-28 with 54 saves and a 3.80 ERA. He's struck out 507 and walked 163.

"Regas is a veteran lefty strike-thrower, who'll anchor the back of our bullpen," said manager John Massarelli.

After playing his first two professional seasons, 2002-03, in the independent Frontier League, the New York Mets signed Regas as an undrafted free agent. He pitched part of the 2004 season with New York's single-A team in Brooklyn. Regas then played for independent teams during 2005-08, before signing with Detroit in 2009. He reached triple-A Toledo that season, where he went 0-1 in seven appearances (8.0 innings), with eight strikeouts and one walk.

The T-Bones open the 2014 regular season at home on May 15 against Lincoln. For additional information or interview requests, members of the media may contact the T-Bones media relations department at 913-328-5639.
