Lance Berkman helps Astros' Gregerson on approach vs. LH batters
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros pitching coach Brent Strom had reliever Luke Gregerson meet with retired MLB slugger Lance Berkman to get a better idea on how left-handed batters view Gregerson's sinker, per MLB.com.

"Everything's always helpful when you get to talk to someone who has such success as a hitter," Gregerson said. "From a pitcher's standpoint, it's interesting to hear what gets in your head and what messes with them as a hitter and what keeps them off balance. Hopefully, it's something that I can transition to the mound against other guys down the road."

Berkman, who spent three days in Astros' camp as a guest instructor, liked hitting against sinkerball pitchers during his career, so he had a lot of wisdom to share with Gregerson, who is competing for the closer's role.

"You always hear lefties are low-ball hitters and most lefties don't want balls in on their hands or anything on the inside part of the plate," Berkman said. "Generally with sinkerballers, that's where they're trying to throw it, is down and out over the plate.

"Those are fun conversations to have, because then there's back and forth. It's a cat-and-mouse game all over again. That's the part of the game I really enjoyed."

Astros manager A.J. Hinch on naming a closer: 'It'll take a while'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch told reporters Saturday that he has somewhat of an idea who his closer will be this season, but declined to reveal any names, per the Houston Chronicle. Hinch noted that it "will take a while" before he names his closer.

"I think you got to let it play out," Hinch said. "I don't want to get too far in trying to make that happen in your own mind. But I do have an idea of how I think it's going to play out, but I'm not rushing to judgment, or, I'm not against changing my mind about half a dozen to 10 times between now and April. It's very, very premature.

"There's less need to sort of try out. Competing for it is sort of a hard way to describe it when you've got guys that have some credentials. So I'll stop calling it a competition, but it's more of an alignment of how we're going to use them."

Luke Gregerson signed a three-year, $18.5 million contract with the Astros, and is the highest-paid reliever on the roster. Chad Qualls was the ninth-inning man last season, and Pat Neshek, Tony Sipp and Josh Fields are all viable candidates for the gig.
