Pirates trade Jason Grilli

Pittsburgh Pirates Photo Day The Pittsburgh Pirates have acquired RHP Ernesto Frieri from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for Jason Grilli, the team announced minutes ago.
It’s a trade of two closers who have collapsed this season. Frieri who officially lost his closers role a few days ago, has a 6.39 ERA to go with 11 saves on the season.
Last season he had 37 saves and a 3.80 ERA.
Frieri, though, is 28 and has great strikeout ability. For a pitcher in Grilli who was eventually going to be DFA, a pretty good return for Huntington.
