Astros | Tyler White demoted to Fresno

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 13:55:42 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Tyler White was optioned to Class AAA Fresno Friday, June 17. In a corresponding move, RP Luke Gregerson was reinstated from the family medical emergency list.

Fantasy Tip: White could resurface at some point, but after posting a .178/.282/.289 slash line since Sunday, May 1, there isn't any reason to stash him. Gregerson has pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings through three outings since being removed as the closer, but his fantasy value is extremely limited at this point. One final note, with White demoted, it is likely A.J. Reed or Alex Bergman could find their way to Houston in the near future and both are viable stashes in deep leagues.

Astros | Luke Gregerson on medical leave

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 12:23:02 -0700

Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson was placed on the family medical emergency list Tuesday, June 14. INF Danny Worth was selected to the major league roster in a corresponding roster move.

Fantasy Tip: Gregerson should be back in a few days, and in the meantime Ken Giles and Will Harris should be among those getting save opportunities. The situation in Houston is still very much fluid regarding the closers. Harris has been getting save chances and so have Giles and Gregerson, and Harris is in the lead at the moment. Worth will provide backup support for Carlos Correa while up with the parent club, but his stay should be brief.

Astros | Will Harris picks up save

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 17:00:28 -0700

Houston Astros RP Will Harris threw a perfect ninth inning against the Oakland Athletics to pick up his first save of the season Sunday, June 5, and manager A.J. Hinch said Harris will have his chance to pitch the ninth inning as RP Luke Gregerson is eased out of the closer's role.

Fantasy Tip: Harris owns a miniscule 0.34 ERA this year, and while Ken Giles and Michael Feliz could also factor in the ninth inning, Harris' impressive numbers make him a must-add player if you need saves.

Astros | Luke Gregerson out as closer

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 16:56:40 -0700

Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson will be eased out of the closer's role for the time being, manager A.J. Hinch said Sunday, June 5, and RP Will Harris, RP Ken Giles and RP Michael Feliz will all have a chance in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Giles has some history on his side, but Harris has the best numbers this year and picked up a save Sunday. If you are desperate for saves, both players are worth grabbing, but the committee approach will likely result in a messy situation for fantasy owners.

Astros | Luke Gregerson blows fifth save

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 19:21:18 -0700

Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson blew his fifth save of the season, allowing a game-tying home run to Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie Saturday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gregerson's hold on the closer's gig has to be tenuous after back-to-back blown saves. Ken Giles is the likely candidate to take over the role, but Will Harris and his 0.35 ERA could be a sleeper candidate.

Astros | Luke Gregerson blows three-run lead

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 22:54:49 -0700

Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson allowed three runs, including a game-tying two-run home run, in 1/3 of an inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday, June 1. He was replaced by RP Pat Neshek.

Fantasy Tip: What a difference a day makes. The meltdown against the D-Backs comes after Gregerson had successfully converted five straight save opportunities, and it was his fourth blown save since May 11. Six saves in 10 chances isn't going to cut it, and you have to wonder if/when the club will try Will Harris (0.36 ERA, 0.73 WHIP in 24 2/3 IP this year) or Ken Giles (15 saves with the Phillies in '15) in the ninth inning. It'd be a good time to stash Harris and/or Giles if you have the room.

Astros | Luke Gregerson records 13th save

Tue, 31 May 2016 21:34:29 -0700

Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson struck out the side in the ninth inning on Tuesday, May 31, to preserve an 8-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks and record his 13th save. It was his fifth straight successful conversion.

Fantasy Tip: After blowing three saves in four opportunities, Gregerson's grip on the job looked to be slipping. He has righted the ship, however, going 5-for-5 since then on save opportunities and allowing one run in seven innings of work while striking out 12. The presence of Ken Giles, who pitched better in May after a brutal April, means Gregerson's hold on the job will always be somewhat tenuous, but he seems to be on solid ground for the moment.

Astros | Luke Gregerson picks up save

Wed, 18 May 2016 21:39:23 -0700

Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 18, to pick up his ninth save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Gregerson had blown two straight save opportunities before earning the save Wednesday. He likely will keep the closer job for the time being but is a risky option for owners because he could lose the job if he has another tough outing.

Astros | Luke Gregerson blows another save

Tue, 17 May 2016 23:47:26 -0700

Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson blew his second straight save chance Tuesday, May 17, and it was his third blown save in 11 chances. RP Tony Sipp picked up the save in extra innings.

Fantasy Tip: When you consider that the team essentially handed Ken Giles the job when they traded for him in the offseason, it doesn't look like Gregerson has much rope. Gregerson's 4.08 ERA is high, but he has a solid 1.08 WHIP and hasn't allowed a home run. Things could turn around, and they'll have to if he wants to remain the closer. Giles hasn't been good this year, but he has pitched four consecutive scoreless innings with five K's. He's probably still ahead of Sipp and his 4.11 ERA in the pecking order because at 32, you kind of know that Sipp is what he is. Giles has wipeout stuff and may be worth picking up.

Astros | Luke Gregerson picks up save

Sat, 14 May 2016 05:35:43 -0700

Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Boston Red Sox Friday, May 13, to pick up his eighth save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Gregerson has allowed four runs over his last five appearances but appears to still be the team's closer for the time being. He is a fine fantasy option as long as he continues to close games but would lose some value if he is replaced at some point.
