The Chicago Cubs say president of baseball operations Theo Epstein has accepted Kevin Gregg's apology for a tirade to the media and the team will not release him.

Before Saturday's game against Atlanta, Gregg says he's put the issue behind him and believes "it's over" as far as Epstein is concerned, too.

Gregg unloaded to reporters on Friday about his dissatisfaction over apparently losing his closer's job to reliever Pedro Strop. His outburst came after allowing four runs in the ninth during Friday's 9-5 loss.

After learning of Gregg's comments, Epstein said he would consider releasing Gregg. He called Gregg on Friday night and accepted the pitcher's apology.

Manager Dale Sveum says the Cubs will look at Strop in the closer's role, but Gregg hasn't lost his job.
