Pirates | Jason Grilli returning to late innings

Fri, 13 Sep 2013 10:55:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said RP Jason Grilli will return to the late innings when the team has a lead, meaning Grilli is close to regaining the closer's role from RP Mark Melancon. Grilli will pitch the seventh and eighth innings when the team has a lead, with Melancon remaining in the ninth, for now. Grilli has given up a run in two of his three appearances since coming back from the disabled list, and he's struck out three and walked one in 2 1/3 innings. "I do like the way that Grilli's developing," Hurdle said. "I think he's getting closer." Melancon has a save in each of his last four outings.

Fantasy Tip: Melancon has done a fantastic job filling in in the ninth with Grilli injured, but that time is coming where the Pirates are comfortable giving the closer job back to Grilli. Continue to ride Melancon if you own him.

Pirates | Jason Grilli won't close immediately

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 16:59:30 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates RP Jason Grilli (forearm) said he doesn't expect to immediately return to the closer's role after being activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 3. Manager Clint Hurdle said Grilli will make a couple relief appearances in non-save situations before returning to the ninth inning. "Our eyes will tell us what to do with him after that, I believe ... his eyes and our eyes," Hurdle said. "We eventually plan on transitioning him back to the closer role."

Fantasy Tip: Mark Melancon has a little bit more time to accrue saves in the meantime. Hang onto him if you are riding him for saves.

Pirates | Jason Grilli activated

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 13:23:08 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates activated RP Jason Grilli (forearm) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Grilli will immediately return to closing duties, moving Mark Melancon back into a setup role. Melancon could see a few save chances if the Pirates elect to be conservative with Grilli, though.
