Kevin Gregg has a 5.79 ERA in 14 innings this month and interest in him has cooled. So the Cubs are apparently pulling him back from the trade block.

ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that the Cubs “could wait until August” to deal the 35-year-old righty, who has 22 saves in 26 chances this season and a cool 3.05 overall ERA. The deadline for traditional trades is Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET but some players can still be moved through waivers up until August 31.

The Braves were said to have some interest in Gregg back in late June. The veteran reliever is scheduled to hit the free agent market this winter.

    Meh. Gregg stinks in any role but closer (which doesn’t make any sense, but is true). Anyone who acquires him and plugs him in middle relief or set up will be disappointed.

    Boy I really hope the Braves don’t make a play for Gregg. James Russell is the piece of the Cubs bullpen teams should be looking at but after acquiring Scott Downs the Braves don’t need another lefty.
