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."

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.
