Astros' Gregerson earns first win after suffering first blown save
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) Astros closer Luke Gregerson earned his first relief win of the season Friday against the A's.
The right-hander entered the game in the bottom of the 10th inning, with Houston ahead 2-0. Unfortunately, he could not hold the lead, as he allowed Oakland to tie the game on a two-out, two-RBI double by Josh Reddick.
He was charged with two runs on three hits and no walks, while striking out one in one inning of work. He suffered his first blown save Friday.
Gregerson (1-0) picked up the win as Houston won the game, 5-4, in the 11th inning. Friday was the first time all season Gregerson allowed a run. He had opened the season with seven scoreless innings.
Astros closer Luke Gregerson nearly perfect to begin the year
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Astros closer Luke Gregerson has been as effective as can be to begin his first season in Houston. Gregerson has thrown seven scoreless innings with seven strikeouts and one walk.
"Any time you go out there and get guys out, no matter what the situation, is always a positive thing," Gregerson said to the Houston Chronicle. "That's what we’re here to do. I’m very happy right now with the way the ball’s coming out of my hand, the effectiveness of the pitches.
"When you're out there (closing compared to other relief roles), it doesn’t feel much different. You know that's the end. You know you have to finish it out and make sure we walk away with that victory, and so far, so good."
Astros RP Luke Gregerson earns save Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Astros pitcher Luke Gregerson picked up his third save of the season during Monday's 7-5 win over the Mariners.
Gregerson entered in the ninth inning with a two-run lead and only allowed one base runner before recording the save. In addition to walking one batter, Gregerson also struck out a batter.
Gregerson has yet to surrender a run in seven innings of work this season and is a perfect 3 for 3 in save opportunities.
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.
|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.
