He seemed to be nursing his right elbow. Vin Mazzaro came on in relief, but Mark Melancon would likely serve as the team's primary closer if Grilli was forced to miss time.


yeah. didn't look good.

Rotoworld


Grilli will be re-evaluated on Tuesday before the Pirates determine how long he might be out. It certainly seems like it could be a long-term thing, though, as the closer left immediately after throwing a pitch and was hanging his head in the clubhouse after the game. Mark Melancon will close for the Pirates while Grilli is out. Jul 22 - 10:50 PM

To exactly nobody's surprise, rotoworld reports that Jason Grilli was placed on 15-day dl. Heading to Pittsburgh for more tests.

Pirates beat reporter for the Pitt Post-Gazette on Grilli, "Initial reports are positive, but tests are incomplete. Won't know anything certain for a couple days."

According to RW: "Jim Henderson will go back to a closer role in Milwaukee."

I'm not so sure.

Now they're back-pedaling and allowing for the possibility that Axford gets saves. Gotta love RW %-6
