MLB News: The Chicago Cubs purchased the contract of relief pitcher Kevin Gregg from Triple-A Iowa, just two days after signing him to a minor league deal. He will attempt to strengthen a battered, talent-lacking bullpen.
Fantasy Ramifications: Let’s be honest here. On almost any other team Gregg would be used as a mop-up reliever. On the Cubs he very well could get his shot at picking up some saves in no-time flat. That bullpen of theirs is in shambles and they are in need of someone to close out games. Don’t expect a miracle here, but if he can win the closers job this season, he will have low-end closer value. But that is a lot of if’s.
