Pirates activate Jason Grilli from the disabled list

Pirates closer Jason Grilli is off the disabled list after missing the past month with a strained oblique muscle.

Grilli saved 33 games last season and another four games this year before going on the disabled list, but it’s possible the Pirates will ease him back into the bullpen mix in a low-leverage role because of how well Mark Melancon has fared filling in at closer.

Melancon has eight saves with a 2.05 ERA and 15/5 K/BB ratio in 22 innings this season after making the All-Star team last year on the way to posting a 1.39 ERA in 71 innings.

    Nice job. Got Morton his first win after leading the team in ERA and WHIP.

    Apky, noticed you didn’t panic with our slow start. as the national media and fan base were quick to label us a one hit wonder. The worse part was that half of our fan based followed.
