Pirates | Jason Grilli intends to return

Pittsburgh Pirates RP Jason Grilli (forearm) intends to return and pitch again this year, saying he's "going to be ready before the season's out, you can mark my word on that." He will rest for at least another week before starting a throwing program, and there is no timetable for his return. The typical healing period for his injury is one to two months.

Fantasy Tip: With Grilli out, Mark Melancon will fill in as the team's closer. However, there's a chance that Pittsburgh trades for another bullpen arm before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Stay tuned.
