Cubs | Kevin Gregg earns save
Chicago Cubs RP Kevin Gregg nailed down the save against the Cincinnati Reds in the 10th inning Tuesday, April 23, after RP Carlos Marmol blew the save in the ninth inning. Gregg is now an option to close out games, as manager Dale Sveum said he will continue to go with the matchups to determine who will pitch in the ninth. "I didn't say (Marmol) would not be the closer," Sveum said. "I said it would come down to matchups."
Fantasy Tip: Run to the waiver wire to pick up Gregg if you're desperate for saves. However, he doesn't receive a ringing endorsement; his save Tuesday was his first since 2011, and it came only because Marmol blew a chance and the offense responded by putting up two runs in the top of the 10th inning.
Marmol had looked good in non-save situations since being bumped from the closer role, but he immediately went back to his old ways Tuesday. Continue to consider him a shaky closer that will hurt you in other categories at the expense of saves.
