Blue Jays' Jason Grilli: Earns first hold of 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grilli allowed a hit and one walk, but struck out one Wednesday against the Red Sox en route to his first hold of the season.

The 40-year-old earned 23 holds last season, but he's well off that pace early in the 2017 campaign. The biggest cause for the slow start is the poor performance of his team. Toronto has just three wins so far, the lowest total in all of MLB. Grilli's 1.41 WHIP through six appearances isn't encouraging, yet his 3.18 ERA over 5.2 innings is decent.

Blue Jays' Jason Grilli: Picks up first save Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grilli logged his first save Thursday against the Rays by striking out both batters he faced.

After serving up a home run in his first outing, Grilli turned things around in a big way to close out Thursday's contest. The veteran reliever entered the game with men on second and third with one out, and he managed to limit the damage to one run (albeit due to a wild pitch thrown by him). Thursday's outing showed just how good Grilli can be when he's on, so hopefully this version shows up more frequently than the no-control version of himself while he fills in as the closer for Roberto Osuna (neck).

Blue Jays' Jason Grilli: Could be closer with Osuna out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grilli is likely to begin the season as Toronto's closer after Robert Osuna was placed on the 10-day DL, Canoe.com reports.

Osuna was able to pitch in spring training, so his placement on the DL is a surprise. Unless Osuna suffered a significant setback, Grilli may only be Toronto's closer for about 10 days. And it's not totally clear that Grilli would get all the save chances. Still, Grilli looks to be the player to grab for saves in the near term.

Blue Jays' Jason Grilli: Off to slow start in Grapefruit League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grilli has allowed three runs on six hits -- including two home runs -- through four Grapefruit League appearances.

The 41-year-old has been worked into the mix slowly this spring, but look for him to ramp up the intensity over the final days of camp. Grilli's exhibition numbers are nothing to fret about, as the veteran is simply working on locating his fastball and building up his stamina. The Jays' setup man can be counted on to rack up holds while contributing plenty of strikeouts in 2017.

Blue Jays' Jason Grilli: Will have innings monitored in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Grilli's usage will be closely monitored by manager John Gibbons this season to ensure that the veteran doesn't get overly fatigued, Steve Buffery of the National Post reports.

In regards to his physical ability to pitch deep into the 2017 season, Grilli has responded to the plethora of doubters with a playful smile. "Why does everybody keep asking me if I was tired [last season]?" said Grilli. But the truth is, the 40-year-old fully understands that he isn't a pup anymore, even though he said he still feels like one. The right-hander's average fastball in 2016 (92.4 mph) was more than a tick below his previous season with the Braves when he notched 24 saves while posting a 2.94 ERA. "I got great genes," the personable pitcher added. "I'm Italian, a lot of olive oil running through the veins. There's a lot of fight in me. Hey, if Bartolo Colon can still do it, I best keep up." Grilli, who was traded to Toronto from the Braves in May, will be the primary set-up man once again this season for the Jays. Owners can expect 20-plus holds and possibly a handful of saves from Grilli during the 2017 campaign.
