Pirates | Jason Grilli returning to late innings
Fri, 13 Sep 2013 10:55:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said RP Jason Grilli will return to the late innings when the team has a lead, meaning Grilli is close to regaining the closer's role from RP Mark Melancon. Grilli will pitch the seventh and eighth innings when the team has a lead, with Melancon remaining in the ninth, for now. Grilli has given up a run in two of his three appearances since coming back from the disabled list, and he's struck out three and walked one in 2 1/3 innings. "I do like the way that Grilli's developing," Hurdle said. "I think he's getting closer." Melancon has a save in each of his last four outings.
