Cubs | Kevin Gregg could be released

Sat, 21 Sep 2013 11:09:33 -0700

Chicago Cubs vice president of baseball operations Theo Epstein is considering releasing RP Kevin Gregg following his postgame comments Friday, Sept. 20. "I expected to be treated better than this," Gregg said, showing his frustration with the team planning to give RP Pedro Strop a few save opportunities as the season draws to a close. Shortly after making the comments, Gregg was called into a meeting with Epstein and manager Dale Sveum. "I told him how disappointed I was with him given the way we treated him this year - bringing him back after the first stint didn't go well," Epstein said. "He ran to the media. That was his decision. I told him, as a man, I didn't respect that ... after a couple minutes he understood that he was wrong and apologized profusely."

Cubs | Pedro Strop to close

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 09:51:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Pedro Strop will be used as the team's closer for the rest of the season as they look forward to next year. Strop is 0-for-3 in save situations this year but has 15 holds. RP Kevin Gregg was 32-for-37 in save situations this year, but he'll be a free agent in the offseason and Strop will be entering his first arbitration year.

Fantasy Tip: Run to your league's waiver wire and grab Strop immediately if you're in title contention and are lacking in saves. This could put you over the top in the final week of the season.

Cubs | Pedro Strop could close in 2014

Sun, 11 Aug 2013 13:14:07 -0700

The Chicago Cubs may consider using RP Pedro Strop as their closer next season. Entering play Sunday, Aug. 11, he had not been scored upon in 17 of his 18 appearances since joining the team. "He seems to be able to handle the eighth inning just fine," manager Dale Sveum said. "You just never know. That's a long way away. Hopefully, you have seven closers out there." Strop is currently serving as the set-up man and is unlikely to see any save opportunities during the rest of this season unless CL Kevin Gregg is unavailable.

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.
