Luke Gregerson saves 13th for Astros


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Astros closer Luke Gregerson earned his 13th save of the year with a perfect ninth inning on Tuesday. 

Gregerson struck out two Baltimore batters and protected a three-run lead. 

"It's hard to score on us late when we can hand it to the bullpen," Houston manager A.J. Hinch said.

It's the third straight outing with a save and at least two strikeouts for Gregerson. 


Astros' closer Luke Gregerson picks up 12th save


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) 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
(5/23/2015) 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
(5/22/2015) 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
(5/20/2015) 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
(5/20/2015) 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."


Astros closer Luke Gregerson earns 10th save of the season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Astros closer Luke Gregerson worked out of some trouble in the ninth inning in Houston's 4-2 win over the Blue Jays on Sunday, earning his 10th save of the season.

After getting the first out, Gregerson allowed back-to-back singles to put runners on first and second. He worked out of the jam, however, striking out Steve Tolleson and getting Ezequiel Carrera to foul out to end the game.

Gregerson lowered his ERA to 3.18 in 17 innings of work.

Gregerson surrendered two home runs in a save situation May 1, but still earned the save.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros closer Luke Gregerson may return Tuesday


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/10/2015) Astros closer Luke Gregerson, who is on the team's bereavement list, may return Tuesday, according to the Houston Chronicle

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that he has been texting with his closer, but isn't quite sure when Gregerson will be available.

"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."

“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.”
