Jason Grilli back in closers role

Jason Grilli (30 SV, 2.85 ERA) will return to the closers role starting tonight, manager Clint Hurdle said during his pregame media session. Mark Melancon will be in a setup role if the opportunity presents itself. Grilli is getting an opportunity to reclaim the closers role with eight games remaining. He’s been pitching mostly out of the 7th inning since coming off the DL in September. Grilli has a 7.20 ERA in September.
