Kevin Gregg has been classified a Type A free agent.
Basically, that means if another team signs him the Cubs get a first-round compensation pick.
Are you kidding me, what a steal!
Think about this, a first-round pick for a guy with a losing record, seven blown seven saves and a 4.72 ERA. Eh?
Of course, considering Gregg was suppose to saves games for a team destined for the postseason, it’s not all that funny, but interesting nonetheless!
Rich Harden, on the other hand, is classified a Type B free agent.
