Astros' closer Luke Gregerson picks up 12th save
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/24/15) Astros closer Luke Gregerson got a scare thanks to a ninth-inning homer from the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera, but held on to pick up his 12th save of the season Sunday in Houston's 10-8 victory.
Gregerson hasn't been dominant -- he's given up runs in four of his last 10 outings and homers in three of his last 10 -- but he's only blown one save this season for Houston.
Astros' Luke Gregerson earns eleventh save
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Astros closer Luke Gregerson bounced back from a rocky outing in his last appearance to earn his eleventh save of the season in Saturday's win over Detroit.
Four days earlier, Gregerson gave up two runs in 2/3 of an inning and had to be relieved by Pat Neshek, he closed out the game. That outing snapped a string of saves in six straight appearances for Gregerson.
Gregerson got back on the horse on Saturday. He struck out two in a one-two-three ninth inning to protect a one-run lead. He lowered his ERA to 3.86 in the process.
Astros relievers Gregerson, Neshek giving team solid relief in '15
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) In 2014, the Astros had the highest bullpen ERA in baseball with a 4.80 mark. So, in the offseason, the team addressed that issue by bringing in a couple of solid right-handed relievers in Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek.
A competing general manager called Houston "real smart" for being able to sign both men and making a strength out of a weakness, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
So far, the two have been stellar out of the bullpen for manager A.J. Hinch. Though Gregerson's 4.08 ERA is a bit high, he is 10-for-11 in save chances and has a 14:5 K:BB ratio.
Neshek, meanwhile, is in the midst of 11 straight scoreless outings, and has not walked a batter this season.
Astros closer Luke Gregerson (rest) not available on Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/20/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch confirmed that closer Luke Gregerson will not be available to pitch on Wednesday against the A's. Gregerson nearly cost the team a win on Tuesday when he gave up two runs in the ninth inning. He was pulled in favor of Pat Neshek who closed out the game and got the save.
Gregerson has appeared in three of the last four games for the Astros and has given up two runs in two of those performances.
Hinch indicated that Neshek, Chad Qualls, Tony Sipp and Josh Fields are all options to close if a save is needed on Wednesday, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Astros' Luke Gregerson can't finish ninth Tuesday, out for Wednesday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/20/15) Astros closer Luke Gregerson could not get the job done in the ninth inning Tuesday, allowing two runs on two hits in two-thirds of an inning before being pulled against the A's.
Astros manager A.J. Hinch said afterwards that Gregerson would not be available for Wednesday's series finale, per MLB.com.
"[Gregerson] obviously hasn't gotten ahead of hitters the way he normally does," Hinch said. "He'll likely be down [Wednesday], just given the volume of the last four days, and get him back fresh for the next series."
|2014 summary: Luke Gregerson has been a closer-in-waiting for some time, and in his first season with the Athletics, he had an opportunity to close early on. As part of a committee chosen to replace Jim Johnson in the early weeks of the season, Gregerson received six save opportunities within the A's first 20 games, but he blew three of them. Once Sean Doolittle seized the ninth-inning role, Gregerson settled back into his familiar status as a setup man. He went 5-5 with a 2.12 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 22 holds. At this offseason's Winter Meetings, Gregerson signed a three-year deal with the Astros.|
Playing time status: Gregerson is now part of a mix of potential closers in Houston, along with Pat Neshek and Chad Qualls.
2015 outlook: Perhaps Gregerson will finally get an extended look as a closer, but he's not going unopposed in his quest to fill the role for the Astros. Even if he wins the role, his moderate strikeout rates give him the profile of a No. 2 reliever in standard mixed leagues.
