Jason Grilli had a terrible outing on Thursday afternoon, allowing two walks and two hits, including the game-winning three-run double, in a 4-1 loss.
Grilli is far too explosive to have on any roster right now. While closer Roberto Osuna has been far from perfect, Grilli has not been good in high-leverage situations this season.
Jason Grilli was brought in to squelch a rally in the ninth inning of Thursday's 5-2 win over the Rays. Grilli threw a run-scoring wild pitch but recorded two strikeouts.
Grilli is closing in place of the injured Roberto Osuna. His value will drop significantly when Osuna returns next week.
Jason Grilli pitched a scoreless eighth inning on Saturday, earning his first win as a Blue Jay and striking out two Clevelanders. Roberto Osuna saved the game in the ninth.
Grilli has been quietly excellent since his trade from Atlanta to Toronto. In 11 2/3 innings he's allowed only three runs and struck out 21 while walking only five.
Jason Grilli came on to pitch the ninth of a 10-8 ballgame to earn his first save in a Jays uniform. Grilli ran into a little trouble, as he allowed a hit and two walks in the inning, however he was able to escape with only one run. Overall, Grilli allowed a run on one hit, two walks, and two strikeouts.
Grilli has become the Jays primary setup man since being acquired from the Atlanta Braves. A former All-Star closer, Grilli has become the handcuff to Roberto Osuna thanks to Drew Storen's early season struggles.
Jason Grilli continues to impress as a Blue Jay, as he entered the ninth inning with the Jays up 11-6 and proceeded to strike out the side while allowing a lone hit.
Grilli has now gone five straight games as a Blue Jay without allowing a run, and ten straight games split between the Braves and Jays without allowing a run. Grilli is quickly putting himself in position as Roberto Osuna's closer handcuff, should Osuna struggle or hit the DL at any point.
