Cubs Avoid Arbitration and Ink Kevin Gregg

The Chicago Cubs avoided arbitration, but maybe not controversy, by signing reliever/closer Kevin Gregg in a one year, $4.2 million deal. Gregg, who was acquired from the Marlins, had 29 saves last year with a 3.41 ERA. Gregg is expected to compete with nasty slider throwing Carlos Marmol for the closing job (Marmol had a 2.68 ERA with 114 strikeouts in 87 innings pitched).
