Kevin Gregg: Officially Named Closer Staff

Update: While Gregg has served as the acting closer of late, manager Dale Sveum officially handed him that role Wednesday, the Sun-Times reports.

Recommendation: The Cubs have sought a stable closer all season, and though Kyuji Fujikawa (forearm) is set to return this weekend, Gregg will hold onto the job for the time being after converting his first five chances of the season. Gregg could cede the closer's job to Fujikawa at some point, but it will be his job to lose.
