Jason Grilli picks up a win Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Angels reliever Jason Grilli managed to snag a win Wednesday against the Blue Jays. 

Grilli wound up being a victim of circumstance. After tossing a scoreless inning in the seventh, Albert Pujols put the team on top in the bottom of the inning. The Angels were able to hang on, giving Grilli the win. He's now 1-1 on the year.

Who's next in line to close?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The funny thing about the closer role is that while innumerable relievers are capable of filling it, only 30 can at any one time, giving those 30 disproportionate value in Fantasy. And while in shallower leagues, 30 is more than enough to go around, in standard 12-team formats, it's a shortage. As a result, anticipating the next to enter the role is well worth your while.

Among all middle relievers, I believe Jake McGee, Jeurys Familia, Sergio Romo, Joaquin Benoit, Neil Ramirez, Brad Ziegler, Jason Grilli and Rex Brothers have the best chance of stepping into the closer role by the end of the month. To read up on them and their chances, check out my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog.

Jason Grilli takes first loss with new team Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels pitcher Jason Grilli was stuck with his first loss with his new team Sunday, giving up an unearned run on one hit and striking out one in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Royals.

Grilli (0-3) struck out the first batter he faced, but after hitting the next batter, he saw the lead runner reach third on a botched fielder's choice. The decisive run would come home on a single by the following batter. Grilli owns a 4.57 ERA and 23:11 K:BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings between his two teams.

Angels swap out one shaky closer for another
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The more manager Mike Scioscia insisted he didn't want Joe Smith confined to closing, the more apparent it became the Angels had to make a trade. So they finally did Friday, swapping out perpetual headache Ernesto Frieri for Jason Grilli.

The problem is Grilli hasn't been so reliable himself. He may have been an All-Star in the role last year and was nothing short of lights-out before hurting his forearm midseason. But since then, in 31 appearances between this year and last, he has a 4.82 ERA and 1.68 WHIP.

In fact, the Pirates recently removed him from the closer role, replacing him with Mark Melancon.

Now, maybe the Angels thought that move was premature. Maybe they believe they can resuscitate Grilli somehow. He still has good stuff, so I wouldn't put it past them. But while Frieri is obviously a non-factor in mixed leagues now, I wouldn't be so quick to drop Smith in leagues where saves are scarce.

Angels, Pirates swap Ernesto Frieri for Jason Grilli
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Angels and Pirates swapped deposed closers Friday, with Ernesto Frieri heading to Pittsburgh in exchange for Jason Grilli.

Both pitchers began the season as their team's respective closers, but were replaced due to struggles. Frieri has a 6.39 ERA in 31 innings, with 11 saves in 14 chances, while Grillie has a 4.87 ERA in 20 1/3 innings, with 11 saves in 15 tries. At this point, neither pitcher's role for his new team has been defined.
