|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.
|Kevin Gregg among Cubs' free agents |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/6/13) Cubs catcher Dioner Navarro, relief pitcher Kevin Gregg, starting pitcher Scott Baker and relief pitcher Matt Guerrier have filed before free agency. Gregg played the biggest role of the three in 2013, recording 33 saves, but ceded the closer role to Pedro Strop at the end of the season.

|Cubs could release Kevin Gregg after tirade |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/20/13) Cubs pitcher Kevin Gregg ripped the team after giving up four runs and taking the loss Friday, complaining about the team's plan to give Pedro Strop a look at closer. President of baseball operations Theo Epstein met with Gregg Friday and is upset with the tirade, enough to consider releasing Gregg, ESPN Chicago reports.
Gregg has saved 32 games for the Cubs while posting a 3.45 ERA in 60 innings.
|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.
