Player Profile: Greg Billo

I have one card of Greg Billo, from 2012 Bowman Prospects.

Playing career: Greg Billo was the 28th round pick of the Royals in 2008. He is still in their system though in his first six seasons he did not progress above A ball – in fact it took him four seasons to get out of rookie league ball. In those six seasons he pitched in 89 games, going 23-25 with a 3.20 ERA.

Where he is now: This year he was promoted to AA Northwest Arkansas but is struggling, so far 0-2 with a 6.91 ERA in five games.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is seventh when you type Greg Bil, between Greg Bilsland, a video game producer, and Gregg Billman, an artist. There do not appear to be any other prominent Greg Billos.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Doug Bird.
