Marlins transferred RHP Kevin Gregg from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It was a procedural move to clear room for one of the Marlins' September callups. Gregg underwent season-ending surgery in early August to remove bone chips from his right elbow. He'll be a free agent this winter.

Kevin Gregg will undergo surgery Thursday to have bone chips removed from his right elbow.

Gregg is done for the remainder of 2014. The 36-year-old pitched just nine innings for Miami this season, allowing 10 earned runs on 11 hits and five walks. He will likely have to settle for a minor league contract this winter if he wants to continue his career.

Kevin Gregg (elbow) has yet to resume throwing.

Gregg is eligible to return early next week but isn't expected to be ready at that time. The veteran reliever was placed on the disabled list shortly after the All-Star break with soreness in his pitching elbow.

Marlins placed RHP Kevin Gregg on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 14, with right elbow inflammation.

Gregg evidently must have felt something during his final relief appearance before the All-Star break. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined.

Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Kevin Gregg from Triple-A New Orleans.

Gregg signed a minor league contract with the Fish on June 3 and is now going to get a shot in the major league bullpen. The 35-year-old right-hander had a decent 3.48 ERA in 62 innings last season with the Cubs.

Marlins signed RHP Kevin Gregg to a minor league contract.

The agreement was reported on Monday and now it's official. Gregg is expected to join the Marlins in about a week or so and will receive a prorated portion of $2.1 million, which works out to about $1.4 million, per CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. The 35-year-old is coming of a 3.48 ERA and 56/32 K/BB ratio over 62 innings last season with the Cubs and will provide Miami with another late-inning arm.
Jun 3 - 2:44 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Marlins have signed reliever Kevin Gregg.

The plan calls for him to get some work in the minors before joining the big club in about a week and a half. Per Rosenthal, part of the motivation for trading the 39th pick (and the corresponding draft pool money) to the Pirates for Bryan Morris was to clear some budget space for a reliever. Gregg, 35, had a 3.48 ERA, 33 saves, and a 56/32 K/BB ratio over 62 innings last season with the Cubs. He previously pitched with the Marlins from 2007-2008.
Jun 2 - 4:51 PM

Kevin Gregg said Thursday that he's been pitching to college hitters near his home in Oregon to stay in shape and is "ready to go" once he gets an offer he likes.

Gregg said he's been in contact with several teams since last fall but has yet to get an offer that entices him. The reliever wants a guaranteed deal and is willing to work as a setup guy with games-finished incentives in his contract. While he might not be able to land a guaranteed late-inning role right away, a lot of teams could probably do worse than Gregg as a middle relief option. He saved 33 games while holding a 3.48 ERA with 56 strikeouts over 62 innings for the Cubs last season.
Apr 25 - 8:54 AM

The Mets are meeting with the agent for John Axford and Kevin Gregg on Wednesday, according to MLB Network Radio's Jim Duquette.

Both players would be late-inning options for the Mets, Duquette says. The Mets are in the market for high-leverage relievers in the event their incumbent closer, Bobby Parnell, isn't ready for Opening Day. The 35-year-old Gregg hasn't drawn much interest this offseason but should land a gig somewhere after saving 33 games for the Cubs this past season.

Back in the closer's role for some reason, Kevin Gregg gave up an unearned run but still picked up his 33rd save Wednesday against the Pirates.

Pedro Strop, who was announced last week as the Cubs' new closer, pitched a scoreless eighth for the hold. Gregg got the ninth in a three-run game for his first save since Sept. 13. He took losses in his previous two appearances.

Kevin Gregg took his sixth loss after giving up a ninth-inning homer in a tie game Monday against the Pirates.

Gregg was doing just fine as a closer, but now that he's out of the role, he's entering tie games and taking losses. He should no longer be on fantasy rosters anyway.

The Cubs have decided against releasing Kevin Gregg, with Theo Epstein noting that his apology has been accepted.

Chalk this one up as a big misunderstanding and an overreaction on Gregg's part. The 35-year-old hurler is still unlikely to see any save opportunities for the remainder of the season as the team wants to get a look at Pedro Strop in high-leverage situations in the ninth inning.

Kevin Gregg apologized to Theo Epstein, Dale Sveum, the Cubs organization and to the members of the media in the press box on Friday, for voicing his displeasure on Friday.

Apparently, it was one big misunderstanding. Gregg though that he was being replaced as the team's closer, which irked the veteran right-hander after how well he's pitched this season. What they are actually doing, is using the last few games to get a look at Pedro Strop in the ninth inning to see how he responds, not simply booting Gregg out of the role. Gregg also noted that Epstein is a "smart man" and wouldn't have a knee-jerk reaction like Gregg did. We'll see how it plays out on Saturday, but it sounds like he may avoid the guillotine.

The Cubs are considering releasing Kevin Gregg after he voiced his displeasure to the media following Friday's loss to the Braves.

Gregg complained to the media after the Cubs decided that they would give Pedro Strop some save chances down the stretch. Cubs president Theo Epstein said that he would sleep on the decision, but there's a chance that Gregg has thrown his last pitch in a Cubs uniform.
