Kevin Gregg has officially filed for free agency. The Chicago Cubs are not expected to re-sign him, or even offer him arbitration despite his Type A designation. Carlos Marmol is expected to take over as the closer next year.

    I’ll never understand how they decide who is a Type A and who is a Type B free agent. Sometimes it seems completely arbitrary.
