Luke Gregerson had arthroscopic knee surgery to repair his meniscus on Monday and is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks.
Gregerson has been on the disabled list for nearly four weeks with a right shoulder impingement and now it appears the knee procedure will likely keep him out past the All-Star break. The veteran reliever also began the year on the DL with a strained hamstring and has posted an 8.64 ERA over 12 appearances when he has been healthy. In other words, he's had a rough year.

Cardinals placed RHP Luke Gregerson on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement.

Gregerson had registered a brutal 8.64 ERA in 12 appearances out of the St. Louis bullpen since returning April 16 from a left hamstring strain. It's unclear how long he might be sidelined this time. The veteran setup man is dealing with an elbow issue along with the shoulder impingement.

Cardinals activated RHP Luke Gregerson from the 10-day disabled list.

Gregerson got a late start on the season after suffering a left hamstring strain toward the end of spring training. The veteran reliever tossed four scoreless innings with six strikeouts during a rehab assignment with High-A Palm Beach. Gregerson was mentioned as a possible closer before the Cardinals signed Greg Holland, but he'll now pitch in a set-up capacity.
Apr 16 - 1:16 PM

Luke Gregerson (hamstring) made his fourth minor league rehab appearance with High-A Palm Beach on Friday.

It's notable because it's the first time that the right-hander has worked in back-to-back games. He could join the Cardinals' bullpen as early as Monday. It's unclear where he'll slot in upon his return, as Bud Norris is currently seeing save chances while Greg Holland rounds into form.
Apr 14 - 9:06 AM

Luke Gregerson (hamstring) will begin his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Palm Beach on Saturday.

He'll join teammate Greg Holland in the bullpen there. Gregerson is only expected to require a couple of rehab appearances before he's deemed ready to be activated from the disabled list.
Apr 7 - 3:08 PM

Luke Gregerson (hamstring) threw a successful bullpen session Thursday.

Assuming he recovers OK, Gregerson is expected to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Palm Beach. The veteran reliever should need only a couple rehab appearances before joining the Cardinals bullpen.
Apr 6 - 12:07 PM

Cardinals placed RHP Luke Gregerson on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26, with a left hamstring strain.

Gregerson suffered the injury last week and will probably be sidelined until mid-April. St. Louis is not going to name a closer leading into the 2018 regular season, but Dominic Leone and Tyler Lyons figure to handle most of the save opportunities early on.
Mar 28 - 4:06 PM

Cardinals' manager Mike Matheny announced Saturday that Luke Gregerson (hamstring) will begin the season on the 10-day disabled list.

Matheny also added that either Dominic Leone or Tyler Lyons would function as the team's closer in Gregerson's absence. Given Gregerson's already tenuous hold on the ninth-inning gig, there's a reasonable chance that Leone or Lyons could steal the job away for good if they perform well in his stead.
Mar 24 - 12:11 PM

Luke Gregerson is dealing with a "slight" hamstring issue that has kept him out of Cactus League games.

Gregerson has not pitched for the Cardinals since March 20 and did not make the road trip for Friday's game against the Mets. He's also dealt with a "mild" oblique strain this spring, and while these are all minor injuries -- apparently -- it does mean the right-hander hasn't gotten much work in the Grapefruit League. Don't expect Gregerson to start the year on the disabled list, but keep an eye on his injury situation going forward.
Mar 23 - 12:09 PM

Cardinals president John Mozeliak suggested Wednesday that the team will break camp without naming a closer.

"When you look at it right now, that eighth, ninth inning, we have three or four arms who can compete for [the closer job] or do that," Mozeliak said. "Once the season starts, I think we'll try to get into that ebb and flow where there is someone who has the ninth." Luke Gregerson, Dominic Leone, and Tyler Lyons could all get a shot at saves in the early going. Gregerson was the favorite coming into the spring but got slowed up by an oblique injury. Leone has looked the sharpest of the three. It promises to be a frustrating situation for fantasy owners.
Mar 22 - 9:05 AM

Luke Gregerson struck out two in a perfect inning against the Mets on Tuesday.

Gregerson, who missed a couple of weeks with a minor oblique injury, has yet to allow a hit in three innings this spring. Barring a setback, it looks like he'll be the Cardinals' closer to begin the year.
Mar 20 - 4:58 PM

Luke Gregerson worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning Sunday in the Cardinals' Grapefruit League win over the Nationals.

It was the first appearance in 15 days for Gregerson, who had been sidelined by an oblique injury. The veteran right-hander seems to be the favorite for saves in St. Louis, though Dominic Leone is making a strong case.
Mar 18 - 3:40 PM

Luke Gregerson (oblique) faced live hitters without issue on Friday and is nearing a return to the Cardinals' bullpen.

The plan is to get Gregerson back into Grapefruit League games as early as Sunday. He entered the spring as the favorite for save chances in the Cardinals' bullpen, though Dominic Leone has emerged as a possible contender for the job while Gregerson was sidelined.
Mar 17 - 1:06 PM

Luke Gregerson (oblique) will face live hitters on Friday.

If everything goes to plan, Gregerson should be able to pitch in a game shortly afterwards. There's still a chance that he opens the year as the closer -- and he might be the favorite if he pitches well at the end of the Grapefruit League session -- but Dominic Leone has emerged as a potential contender for the job. Gregerson won't offer much fantasy value if he isn't handling the ninth inning.
Mar 16 - 9:53 AM

Luke Gregerson (oblique) played catch Tuesday.

Gregerson was back in Cardinals camp on Tuesday after traveling to the White House with the World Series champion Astros. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny indicated that the next step could be a bullpen session, followed by a simulated game or a return to Grapefruit League action. Gregerson entered spring training as the favorite for the closer role, but his recent oblique issue might have changed things. The Cardinals have tested Dominic Leone in the late innings recently and he appears equal to the task. There should be more clarity on the situation soon.
