Closer Luke Gregerson nabs second save of season for Astros
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/19/15) Closer Luke Gregerson continued his solid start to the season, notching his second save of the year in the Astros' 4-3 win over the Angels on Sunday.
Gregorson still hasn't allowed an earned run this season and only needed nine pitches to retire the side in order in the bottom of the ninth.
Astros' Hinch couldn't wait for save chance to use Gregerson on Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Instead of saving his closer for a potential save situation in extra innings Sunday against the Rangers, Astros manager A.J. Hinch went to closer Luke Gregerson in the 11th inning with the heart of the Texas lineup due up.
“You get a feel for when these guys need to go into the game,” Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. “At least for me, I felt like that inning with (Elvis) Andrus and (Adrian) Beltre and (Prince) Fielder coming up, I wanted Luke on the mound. It’s not something I’ll do every time, but I had Luke up a couple of different times from the ninth inning on, where he was going to come in. There was just a lot going into that inning where we wanted to get through that part of the order with our closer.”
Gregerson has allowed one hit and no runs in three innings in his first three appearances. He is also 1 for 1 in save opportunities.
Astros pitcher Luke Gregerson earns first save as closer
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/6/15) Astros pitcher Luke Gregerson was named the closer early last week and he did not disappoint in his first appearance Monday. Gregerson struck out one and did not allow a hit in the ninth inning, earning his first save of the year and 20th in his career.
"It was great," he said to the Houston Chronicle. "I know I've had a few saves in my career already. I have kept those (like the one from) my first save in the major leagues.
"I think it's a little more special when you are named as that, as the closer, to go out there and hold it down at the end of the game. So the first one I get here is a little more special to me, I think."
Report: Astros name P Luke Gregerson closer
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) The Astros have named pitcher Luke Gregerson the closer for the club, according to MLB.com.
Gregerson was battling it out with Pat Neshek and Chad Qualls for the role as the team's closer. The 31-year-old right-hander appeared in six games this spring, posting an ERA of 1.59 with four strikeouts and one walk.
Astros manager A.J. Hinch getting closer to assigning bullpen roles
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday is getting closer to announcing bullpen roles, according to the Houston Chronicle.
“Once we get through that (back-to-back appearance) cycle of the work, we'll address roles," he said.
Hinch was referring to three candidates -- Luke Gregerson, Pat Neshek and Chad Qualls -- who are up for the closer's role. Gregerson pitched on consecutive days Monday and Tuesday, Neshek is pitching Tuesday and Wednesday, and Qualls will also pitch on back-to-back days this week.
|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.
