Cubs agree to $4.2M deal with closer Kevin Gregg
The Cubs acquired the 30-year-old right-hander from the Florida Marlins last November for right-hander Jose Ceda, then said the following day that they wouldn't attempt to re-sign Kerry Wood, who then agreed to a $20.5 million, two-year deal with Cleveland.
Gregg was 7-8 with 29 saves and a 3.41 ERA in 72 appearances last season for the Florida Marlins. He made a team-high $2.5 million.
