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.

Blue Jays' Jason Grilli: Rejoining Jays for 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jays exercised the team option on Grilli's contract for the 2017 season, Greg Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

Toronto will pay Grilli $3 million next season after it declined to use the $250,000 buyout on his deal. The move previously had been announced by the club in October, but it did not become official until after the World Series. The right-hander joined the Jays at the end of May in a trade with the Braves. He went on to post a 3.64 ERA in 42 innings while filling a key setup role to closer Roberto Osuna. Grilli, a 14-year veteran, has a career 4.09 ERA with 646 strikeouts over 644.2 innings.

Blue Jays' Jason Grilli: Contributes to disappointing loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Although he earned his 22nd hold of the season, Grilli contributed to the Orioles' comeback win by allowing two hits, including a solo homer, over 0.2 innings Wednesday.

Grilli is just one of the Jays' relievers that has struggled in recent weeks. The righty has allowed five runs over his last inning of work (he recorded just one out while surrendering four runs in his last appearance), and after starting September with a 3.08 ERA, that mark has ballooned to 4.01.

Blue Jays' Jason Grilli: Notches win Monday versus Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grilli (6-5) pitched a clean eighth inning to pick up the win Monday versus the Rays.

Monday marked Grilli's third clean outing in his four September appearances. The only imperfect outing came Sep. 6 against the Yankees when he allowed four runs while recording just two outs. That game was the veteran's first blown save as a member of the Jays. He's been reenergized since being traded from Atlanta, amassing a 2.72 ERA, four saves and 18 holds while striking out 51 batters over 36.1 innings in a Jays uniform.

Blue Jays' Jason Grilli: Loses scoreless streak, game Tuesday against O's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grilli took the loss after issuing a walk and a two-run homer Tuesday against Baltimore.

Grilli lost his 13-inning scoreless streak when he gave up a tie-breaking longball to Orioles' catcher Matt Wieters. The 39-year-old setup man was tied for the fourth-longest active scoreless streak in the majors before disaster struck in the eighth inning Tuesday. Grilli has been rock solid since joining the team June 1, and this rare slip up shouldn't change his fantasy value moving forward.
