Discussion: Kevin Gregg

Although he is admittedly not one of the sexier names on the free agent market, Cubs reliever Kevin Gregg should garner a fair amount of attention this offseason.  The 31-year-old recorded a 9.3 K/9 and a healthy K/BB ratio of 2.37.  Gregg's ERA of 4.72 was a career worst, but his xFIP was a respectable 4.20 – his best since his first full season in 2004.

After losing the role of closer mid-season, it doesn't sound as though re-signing Gregg is a priority of Jim Hendry's.  However, less than a year ago, the Cubs avoided arbitration with Gregg by inking him to a one year pact worth $4.2MM. 

Now that he appears likely to be changing uniforms, what teams should look to acquire his services?  How much is he worth in a marketplace chock full of viable relief options?  Let's hear your thoughts in the comments.
