Luke Gregerson was credited with his first save after retiring all four Mariners he faced on Tuesday.
Gregerson entered with the tying run on deck in the eighth, putting him in line for the save even though it was a 6-2 game. He's recovered pretty well lately from a disappointing first month. Since May 9, he's allowed just five runs and struck out 34 in 25 2/3 innings. Jul 18 - 11:35 PM

Luke Gregerson gave up three runs in an inning Thursday, taking his ERA to 8.49 this season.

Gregerson has gone scoreless in 11 of his 14 appearances, but the problem is that he's given up 11 runs in those other three outings, including five in his last two. Will Harris might get more looks in the eighth until Gregerson gets his ERA down.
May 4 - 6:15 PM

Luke Gregerson was shelled for six runs while retiring only one batter in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.

He came on to start the eighth inning in relief of Dallas Keuchel, who was masterful through seven. The only out Gregerson recorded came on a sacrifice bunt. He walked the first man he faced and then proceeded to give up five hits -- including homers by Eric Hosmer and Sal Perez. This game will elicit groans from any fantasy owners unlucky enough to have Gregerson in their lineup today. It will take the veteran reliever a long time to dilute his 16.20 ERA back down to a respectable level after this beatdown.
Apr 8 - 10:03 PM

Luke Gregerson is expected to pitch for Team USA in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

Gregerson also pitched in the last WBC in 2013. The 32-year-old posted a 3.28 ERA and 67/18 K/BB ratio over 57 2/3 innings this past season and projects to open 2017 in a set-up role with Houston.

Luke Gregerson (ankle) is expected to be available to pitch in this week's series against the Athletics.

Gregerson hasn't pitched since August 18 due to a left ankle injury. He has thrown off the mound in recent days and was scheduled to do so again on Monday, which should determine when he'll be ready to return.

Luke Gregerson (oblique) is scheduled to throw an "aggressive" bullpen session on Wednesday.

If it goes well, he could be activated off the disabled list Friday without a minor league rehab assignment. Gregerson has been sidelined since July 28 because of a left oblique strain. Ken Giles recently took over at closer for the Astros with Will Harris shifting into more of a low-leverage role.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that Luke Gregerson (oblique) throw off the mound Monday.

Gregerson hit the disabled list in late July with a left oblique strain, but he's said to be progressing well. It's unclear if he'll require a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Astros.

Astros placed RHP Luke Gregerson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28, with a left oblique strain.

Gregerson hadn't appeared in a game for Houston since last Wednesday, and now we know why. The setup man will aim to return when first eligible, or shortly thereafter.

Luke Gregerson notched his 14th save of the season, but his first since May 31st on Wednesday despite allowing four baserunners and giving up a run.

Gregerson got the save opportunity only because current Astros' closer Will Harris was unavailable after pitching each of the last three days. Gregerson walked three batters and gave up a run-scoring double to bring the Mariners to within one run before striking out Dae-Ho Lee to end the game. The save was Gregerson's 14th but he is unlikely to get another opportunity anytime soon.

Gregerson is allowed to be away from the team for 3-7 days. Danny Worth will take his spot on the active roster.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Monday that he's prepared to use a committee approach in the closer role.

Luke Gregerson blew his fifth save of the season Saturday, so Hinch turned to Will Harris to lock down Sunday's game. But the situation remains murky. "Right now I think our bullpen is deep and good enough to absorb somewhat of a committee approach," said Hinch. "Now that being said, Will Harris and Ken Giles and Luke Gregerson are still going to get predominantly the most innings that are these leverage innings at the end of games. Michael Feliz is starting to inch his way back toward the back of the bullpen. He becomes an option, too." Harris and Giles need to be stashed in mixed leagues while Feliz is a darkhorse. It's not an ideal situation for fantasy owners, but obviously the Astros don't care about that.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Sunday that the club will "ease off" Luke Gregerson for a bit in the closer's role.

It's not an official announcement that Gregerson has lost the job, but the right-hander blew his fifth save of the season on Saturday against the Athletics and has a 6.78 ERA in 16 appearances over the last month. Will Harris, who has been outstanding for the past year and a half, worked a perfect ninth inning on Sunday against the A's to earn his first save of 2016. Ken Giles is also a worthy stash.
Sun, Jun 5, 2016 05:37:00 PM

Luke Gregerson blew another save Saturday in Astros' extra-innings defeat of the A's.

Gregerson gave up a game-tying solo shot to Jed Lowrie with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and was immediately pulled from the game. He's blown five saves since May 11 and owns a rough 4.56 ERA for the year. You have to figure a change might be coming. Ken Giles has been better lately, but Will Harris is probably the best reliever in the Houston 'pen.
