Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Giles "will get a look" in the ninth inning with Luke Gregerson getting a "mental and physical break from the (closer) role," the Houston Chronicle reports.

Many expected Giles to open 2016 as the Astros' closer after the team traded away five players, including Vince Velasquez and Mark Appel, to acquire him in the offseason. The 25-year-old earned his first save with Houston on May 26, but Will Harris (0.34 ERA) got the call in the ninth inning Sunday and converted his first opportunity of the season. Only time will tell whether this plays out as a committee situation or one reliever takes the role and runs with it.
