Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson blew his second straight save chance Tuesday, May 17, and it was his third blown save in 11 chances. RP Tony Sipp picked up the save in extra innings.
Fantasy Tip: When you consider that the team essentially handed Ken Giles the job when they traded for him in the offseason, it doesn't look like Gregerson has much rope. Gregerson's 4.08 ERA is high, but he has a solid 1.08 WHIP and hasn't allowed a home run. Things could turn around, and they'll have to if he wants to remain the closer. Giles hasn't been good this year, but he has pitched four consecutive scoreless innings with five K's. He's probably still ahead of Sipp and his 4.11 ERA in the pecking order because at 32, you kind of know that Sipp is what he is. Giles has wipeout stuff and may be worth picking up.
