Luke Gregerson was removed before finishing Tuesday's game, allowing two runs while recording just two outs against the Athletics.
Gregerson walked a batter, allowed a double and an RBI single before recording an out. He got two on a run-scoring double play, walking another batter before being yanked. Pat Neshek came in to record the final out for the save. It's the second rough outing Gregerson has had in the past week, but until manager A.J. Hinch says otherwise it's assumed he'll hold onto his job. May 20 - 12:25 AM

Luke Gregerson locked in his 10th save of the season against the Blue Jays on Sunday, despite allowing two hits in the ninth inning.

Trailing 4-2, the Blue Jays put runners on first and second with one out in the ninth inning, but Gregerson slithered out of the jam. He struck out one in his inning of work while securing his 10th save. This season, Gregerson's been far from perfect, but he's mostly been able to get the job done. He's 10-for-11 in save opportunities and holds a 3.18 ERA and 14/3 K/BB ratio over 17 innings.
May 17 - 4:48 PM

Luke Gregerson is expected to rejoin the Astros on Friday.

Gregerson returned from the family medical emergency list to close out Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, but he had to leave again today, opening the door for Chad Qualls to pick up a save. Gregerson should be available to close tomorrow.
May 14 - 11:16 PM

Astros activated RHP Luke Gregerson from the family medical emergency list.

Gregerson has been away from the team since last Friday. The 30-year-old has been solid as Houston's closer so far this season, posting a 2.57 ERA over 14 appearances while going 7-for-8 in save chances.
May 12 - 2:23 PM

Astros placed RHP Luke Gregerson on the family medical emergency list.

The Astros didn't say how long Gregorson would be away, but it would seem unlikely that he returns this weekend. Chad Qualls would figure to be the favorite for saves while Gregerson is away.
May 8 - 5:58 PM

Luke Gregerson earned his sixth save on Sunday, walking one and striking out one Mariner in a scoreless ninth.

After walking Rickie Weeks, Gregerson induced a double-play grounder from Brad Miller to end the game. It's been a sketchy few days for Gregerson, who allowed two home runs on Friday. He picked up the save in that one, too. While he's now 6-for-7 in save chances, he'll have to pitch more tightly if he expects to keep up the good percentage. For the season, he holds a 2.77 and 10/2 K/BB ratio over 13 innings.
May 3 - 5:30 PM

Luke Gregerson allowed two home runs in the ninth inning Friday against the Mariners, but managed to hold on for his fifth save of the season.

Gregerson was handed a three-run lead, but gave up a leadoff homer to Nelson Cruz and a one-out blast to Logan Morrison. However, he was able to get Brad Miller to ground out and struck out Rickie Weeks swinging for the final out of the ballgame. He's 5-for-6 in save chances and has a 3.00 ERA with a 9/1 K/BB ratio over 12 innings. The Astros have won eight straight games and are tied with the Royals for the AL's best record at 16-7.
May 2 - 12:04 AM

Luke Gregerson pitched a clean ninth inning against the A's on Sunday, notching his fourth save of the season.

The Astros scored two runs in the top of the ninth inning on an Evan Gattis double and Gregerson made sure that his teammates' comeback efforts were not in vain, nailing down the save to secure a 7-6 win. It was a nice rebound, as it comes just two days after Gregerson blew a 10th inning opportunity. He's now 4-for-5 in save opportunities and sports an even 2.00 ERA and 8/1 K/BB ratio over nine innings.
Apr 26 - 7:55 PM

Luke Gregerson blew his first save Friday after giving up two runs in the 10th against the A's.

Gregerson came in after the Astros scored twice in the top of the inning, but he faltered for the first time this year. Part of the blame goes to Jose Altuve, who should have had Stephen Vogt at first for the final out of the game, except he made a high underhand toss of the wet ball, giving Vogt time to race down the line and beat it out. The two runs Gregerson allowed were the first he's given up this season.
Apr 25 - 2:02 AM

Luke Gregerson picked up his third save of the season, closing out the Astros' 7-5 win over the Mariners on Monday.

Gregerson brought the tying run to the plate after issuing a two-out walk to Kyle Seager, but he got Seth Smith to strike out swinging to end the ballgame. Gregerson remains unscored upon while converting all three save opportunities with a 7/1 K/BB ratio in seven innings.
Apr 21 - 1:46 AM

Luke Gregerson nailed down the save for the Astros in an Opening Day victory over the Indians.

Gregerson, making his Astros debut after signing a three-year, $18.5 million deal in December, set down Michael Brantley, Carlos Santana, and Yan Gomes on two ground outs and a strikeout. Though he's never been a full-time closer until now, Gregerson has been consistently elite throughout his career and should have no problem closing out games in Houston.
Apr 6 - 9:44 PM

Luke Gregerson has been named the Astros' closer.

It was a predictable decision. Gregerson posted a 2.12 ERA and 59/15 K/BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings last season for the A's and should carry considerable fantasy value this year on a quickly-improving Astros team.
Mar 31 - 4:12 PM

Astros signed RHP Luke Gregerson to a three-year, $18.5 million contract.

There are also incentives in the deal that could take the total value of the contract to $21 million. Gregerson has been one of baseball's better setup men for years now, boasting a career 2.75 career ERA, including a 2.12 mark this past season for the A's. He's likely the favorite to close for the Astros.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Astros have signed reliever Luke Gregerson to a three-year, $18.5 million contract.

The Astros fell short in their bids for Andrew Miller and David Robertson, but Gregerson is a pretty good Plan B at this price. The 30-year-old owns a 2.75 career ERA, including a 2.12 ERA and 59/15 K/BB ratio over 72 1/3 innings this past season. He has mostly served as a set-up man in his career, but he could be in the mix for the closer role with Houston in 2015.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Luke Gregerson is "likely to get a three-year deal, at minimum."

Cotillo says there's been a "ton" of interest in the reliever to the point that he might even get a fourth year. It's hard to blame Gregerson for asking for four years after Andrew Miller got it. The setup man boasts a 2.75 career ERA, including a 2.12 mark this past season for the A's.
