San Diego Padres RP Luke Gregerson
Safe as interim

In the bottom of the eighth inning on Thursday night, Dale Thayer made the San Diego Padres' two-run lead versus the Colorado Rockies vanish with a wave of Wilin Rosario's bat. That outing should add a little cement to Luke Gregerson's standing as top steed in Huston Street's stead.

Incidentally, in what could be considered a possible gaze into the Friars' crystal ball, righty Brad Boxberger picked up the closure in the 12th inning by protecting a one-run advantage. He struck out Nolan Arenado, coaxed a ground-out from Carlos Gonzalez, walked Troy Tulowitzki and then retired Michael Cuddyer on a grounder to third.

For whatever they're worth:

Both hurlers have regained some authority, perhaps more so in the fantasy community than from their respective managers, who seemed to be steadfast in their support.

The Miami Marlins have reportedly told other organizations that relievers Steve Cishek and Mike Dunn aren't available in trades prior to the July 31 non-waiver deadline. They, along with Chad Qualls, may continue to jockey for save opportunities for what will seem like an eternity but should take a little less than four months.

In a related story, the club has placed both trapped hurlers on suicide watch. They're already on the endangered-species list: Fish who are actually not trade bait.
