Cubs Reliever Rumors Heating Up Again

According to a report from Jerry Crasnick on, the Cubs continue monitoring Jason Frasor of the Toronto Blue Jays. The Cubs have inquired, once again, about Frasor’s availability after losing Angel Guzman over the weekend.

According to a radio report from Bruce Levine on Monday, the Cubs are continuing to look at Jason Frasor and Luke Gregerson. Levine said the Cubs are pushing hard for both Frasor and Gregerson in hopes of landing one for the backend of the pen.

Bruce Levine said James Russell and Casey Coleman could be in the mix for the bullpen. The Cubs are looking to add a veteran to pitch in the late innings.

The Cubs have had rumored interest in Jason Frasor and Luke Gregerson for some time … dating back several months.

Crasnick thinks the Cubs might step up their efforts to land Jason Frasor after losing Angel Guzman.

Levine reported the Blue Jays are looking at the Cubs’ system to see if there is a fit. Levine went onto explain the Blue Jays are not sure if they want to deal Jason Frasor … and it could go into Opening Day before the Cubs are able to make a deal.

According to a report from Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs are scouting both Spring Training leagues for a setup man. Also, the Cubs could look at John Smoltz and Pedro Martinez “down the line” according to his sources.
