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.
