Reliever Kevin Gregg has been mulling offers from a few clubs and will make a decision "this week, in the next couple of days", agent Danny Horwits told Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun. Baltimore offered the right-hander a two-year deal worth between $8-10MM in early December.
Since putting the two-year offer on the table, the O's have been in regular contact with Horwits. The agent won't disclose which teams are in the mix for his client but it appears that Baltimore is among the finalists.
“We’ve been going back and forth with the teams that are left in the mix for the last couple of weeks,” the agent said. “We’re received new counter offers, fine-tuned other offers. Now, we’re pretty much in the mode of Kevin is going to make a decision.”
Gregg turned in a 3.51 ERA last season with 8.8 K/9 and 4.6 BB/9 in 63 appearances for the Blue Jays. The 32-year-old will likely mark the last major acquisition for the O's this winter. Derrek Lee will likely mark their final offensive upgrade and even though they're in need of a starter and a left-handed reliever, those vacancies will be filled with small deals.
