|Marlins add Kevin Gregg to bullpen |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/18/14) The Marlins recalled reliever Kevin Gregg from Triple-A New Orleans following Wednesday's game against the Cubs. Gregg was 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA and three strikeouts in six innings for New Orleans.
|Marlins see Kevin Gregg as a set-up reliever |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/3/14) Recently signed reliever Kevin Gregg figures to feature prominently in the Marlins' bullpen plans moving forward, as manager Mike Redmond told the Palm Beach Post Tuesday.
Redmond foresees using Gregg in an eighth-inning setup role, given his experience pitching at the end of games. Gregg served as the Marlins' closer in 2007 and 2008, saving 61 of 74 chances over those two seasons.
"You look at what he’s done in his career," Redmond said. "He's closed games, he's done a lot of different roles. He definitely fits that bill."
Gregg posted 3.48 ERA in 62 innings for the Cubs a year ago, recording 33 saves, but is unlikely to see much time as a closer in Miami. Steve Cishek has blown just three saves over the last two seasons.
|Marlins sign Kevin Gregg |

(6/2/14) The Marlins signed free-agent reliever Kevin Gregg, reports Fox Sports. He went 2-6 with a 3.48 ERA and 33 saves in 62 innings with the Cubs last year.
|Kevin Gregg waiting for teams to call |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/25/14) Free-agent reliever Kevin Gregg is staying ready, and waiting for teams to call, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
Gregg is seeking a major-league contract, but hasn't been contacted about a job yet. He's been throwing to local college hitters in order to stay in shape. Gregg expressed confidence in his ability to get the job done once he's signed. "I know I can pitch in the big leagues," he said. "I know I can get outs in the big leagues. I know I can still close; I did it last year."
Gregg posted a 3.48 ERA in 62 innings with the Cubs last season. He saved 33 games.
|Report: Mets still in market to sign closer-type reliever |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/3/14) The Mets are still in the market to sign a closer-type reliever, a source unaffiliated with the club told ESPN. The source believes Fernando Rodney is the team's top target, but the team would likely consider Kevin Gregg, Ryan Madson and Joel Hanrahan as well.
Closer Bobby Parnell has expressed confidence in bouncing back from neck surgery, but the Mets don't have much of a safety net.
|Perhaps thinking it would give him some trade value later in the year, the Cubs made Kevin Gregg their closer in 2013. They weren't the first to do so. Prior to 2012, when he pitched strictly in middle relief, he recorded at least 22 saves in five straight seasons. But just because he adequately filled that role for a Marlins team short on options back in 2007 doesn't mean it's his identity forevermore. An erratic pitcher lacking in swing-and-miss stuff, Gregg is a better fit to mop up and close, which might explain why the Cubs never found a taker for him last season. They finally gave up in September and began transitioning Pedro Strop to the role. Like any closer, Gregg mattered in Fantasy in 2013, recording 33 saves for a bad Cubs team. But apart from the saves, he has nothing to offer, which might explain why he still hasn't found a job yet. With more and more teams turning to their best relievers in the ninth inning instead of just the pitchers with the most experience, you probably won't have reason to draft Gregg in 2014.
