|Blake Parker could close if Cubs trade Kevin Gregg |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/30/13) Cubs reliever Blake Parker, who earned his first save of the season in Saturday's extra-innings win, is an option to close if the team trades reliever Kevin Gregg.
"It'd be tough to replace," Cubs manager Dale Sveum told MLB.com regarding Gregg. "He's done a great job. I guess maybe you could look at [Blake] Parker because he's done it in Triple-A, if those things come to light. You've got to use somebody. It'll be a wait-and-see situation."
Parker has a 2.19 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 15:5 K:BB ratio in 12 1/3 innings since making his 2013 debut on June 1. He has 66 career minor-league saves.
