Pirates | Jason Grilli won't close immediately

Pittsburgh Pirates RP Jason Grilli (forearm) said he doesn't expect to immediately return to the closer's role after being activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 3. Manager Clint Hurdle said Grilli will make a couple relief appearances in non-save situations before returning to the ninth inning. "Our eyes will tell us what to do with him after that, I believe ... his eyes and our eyes," Hurdle said. "We eventually plan on transitioning him back to the closer role."

Fantasy Tip: Mark Melancon has a little bit more time to accrue saves in the meantime. Hang onto him if you are riding him for saves.
