by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2015) Although Braves pitcher Jason Grilli will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles, he vowed to be back next season, reports MLB.com.

"I'll be back out there next year, mark my words," Grilli said. "This [injury] will be easier to come back from than the last one. I push myself. You lay yourself on the line every day. That's the only way I know how to do it and that's the only way to do it."

Grilli suffered the injury during Saturday's contest. He had 24 saves with a 2.94 ERA in 33 2/3 innings.

Braves RP Jason Grilli exits with apparent leg injury on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/11/2015) Braves closer Jason Grilli was forced to exit Saturday's game against the Rockies with an apparent left leg injury.

After being tended to by the training staff, Grilli was carted off the field, unable to put any pressure on his left leg. The Braves have not announced the nature of the injury, but it certainly did not look promising. 

Grilli currently ranks fifth in the National League with 24 saves.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Grilli, who is 3-3 with a 2.67 ERA and 24 saves in 35 appearances, is under contract through 2016. He is slated to make $3.5 million next season and has a $3 million team option ($250,000 buyout) for 2017.
