Gregg gave up a two-run homer while recording just two outs in Tuesday's win over the Cubs.

Once again tasked to pitch the eighth inning, Gregg faltered again. He gave up a walk before allowing the two-run homer. Literally anyone else in the Reds bullpen would be a better option to pitch the eighth than Gregg right now.

Reds manager Bryan Price was non-committal when asked about Gregg pitching in the eighth inning again: "He may be. He may not be. It just depends on who I have healthy and who is down there. He's a guy who is experienced as a closer, a setup man and a starter. He's a guy who has been a lot tighter situations than that over the course of his career. As I've told you, the bullpen will be ever evolving. These guys will cut out their roles based on how they perform."

Gregg blew a lead on Monday by giving up a two-run homer to Andrew McCutchen. All four batters against him hit hard shots, but two were caught for outs.

Gregg gave up a two-run homer to Andrew McCutchen to blow a 2-0 lead in the eighth inning on Monday.

It was infuriating enough that Gregg made the roster over Sam LeCure based on his spring, but then to put him in a high-leverage situation boggles the mind. He won't likely get the next hold situation.

Gregg had his contract selected by the Reds on Sunday.

Gregg has officially earned a spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster with the move, likely indicating either Sean Marshall or Trevor Bell, or both, will begin the season on the disabled list. A decision will have to be made once the duo are set to return, and Gregg's pitching over the initial stretch could go a long way in determining what happens.

The Reds have to decide Wednesday whether Gregg will make their Opening Day roster, and there's a good chance he will, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Gregg is one of five non-roster players still in camp for the Reds. He and Jason Marquis are the two most likely of that group to make the team.

Gregg has signed a minor-league deal with the Reds and an invite to spring training, the team announced.

The 36-year-old Kevin Gregg is likely at the end of his career, after a disastrous 2014 in which he gave up 10 earned runs in nine innings, then was shut down to have bone chips removed from his elbow. It's going to require a lot to convince the Reds he's worth a roster spot in the coming months.

Gregg says he is feeling great after having bone chips removed from his elbow last August, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Gregg has not signed with a team after electing free agency last October, but he is hoping to do so after throwing in front of representatives for several squads Tuesday. He recorded 33 saves just two seasons ago, but allowed 10 earned runs over nine innings in 12 appearances out of the Marlins' bullpen last season.

Gregg was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday.

Gregg was moved to the 60-day DL to open up a roster spot for Carter Capps, who was activated from teh 60-day DL on Monday, on the 40-man roster. Gregg's season is over with the Marlins, and he will be a free agent in the offseason.

Gregg will undergo season-ending surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Gregg was forced out of action last month with what was labeled elbow inflammation, but it's been determined that he needs arthroscopic surgery, and he'll miss the rest of the 2014 campaign as a result. The 36-year-old gave up 10 runs on 11 hits in just nine innings with the Marlins, and he'll almost certainly have to settle for another minor league deal in the offseason.
