Luke Gregerson allowed three runs in the ninth inning, taking the loss as the Astros suffered a walk-off defeat to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Jose Bautista then reached on an infield single, and both he and Jose Reyes executed a double steal to put the tying run at third base and the winning run on second base for Chris Colabello. Colabello singled to center to bring in both runs. It's only the second blown save of the year for Gregerson, who is now 15-for-17 with a 4.50 ERA and a 27/6 K/BB ratio in 24 innings.

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.

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 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.

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.
