Cubs | Pedro Strop could close out games

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 10:03:10 -0700

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum said over the weekend that RP Pedro Strop could be thrust into the closer role if and when RP Kevin Gregg is traded this month. "He's obviously one of the higher candidates just because he's pitched in high-profile games already in the big leagues," said Sveum of Strop, who pitched well in two playoff games for the Baltimore Orioles last fall. Strop hasn't allowed a run in eight outings with the Cubs since being traded July 2.

Fantasy Tip: If you're in search of saves, it would be wise to pick up Strop or Blake Parker now. Strop will be the next in line if Gregg is traded, which is expected. But don't count out Parker making his way to the ninth inning if Strop struggles.

Cubs | Matt Guerrier, Pedro Strop won't be setup men

Fri, 05 Jul 2013 11:10:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum said RPs Matt Guerrier and Pedro Strop won't be handed the eighth-inning setup role in front of RP Kevin Gregg. "I think (Blake) Parker pretty much put himself in that role right now," Sveum said. "It's pretty much going to be Parker and Gregg in those last two innings."

Fantasy Tip: Blake Parker is the main handcuff to Kevin Gregg in case the incumbent closer is traded at this month's deadline. If that happened, Guerrier or Strop would likely move into a setup role. Own Parker in deep mixed leagues if you're searching for saves. Guerrier and Strop can be ignored, for now.
