Right-handed reliever Kevin Gregg has agreed to terms on a minor-league contract with the Miami Marlins, pending a physical.

Gregg, who turns 36 this month, pitched last year for the Chicago Cubs and had 33 saves with a 3.48 earned-run average.

He has 177 career saves, including 61 in two seasons with the Marlins.

With the agreement Monday, the Marlins acquired their second reliever in as many days.

On Sunday, they traded the 39th overall pick in this week's draft to the Pittsburgh Pirates for right-hander Bryan Morris.
