So far in 2014, the 37 year old Grilli already has twice as many blown saves as he did a year ago. In 15 chances, Grilli has blown 4 games for the Pirates. In 18.2 innings pitched, Grilli has a 4.34 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. Grilli already has given up 4 home runs. He only gave up 4 last season. After walking 13 batters in 50 innings last year, Grilli has walked 10 in just 18.2 innings this year.
Over his last 6.2 innings, Grilli has given up 8 hits, 5 walks and 5 runs. Big reason why Hurdle made the move.
Melancon takes over as the closer and he is having himself a great season, with a 1.89 ERA. Melancon has given up only 20 hits and 6 walks in 33.1 innings pitched. That's a WHIP of 0.78.
If Melancon is available in your fantasy leagues, he's obviously a must add.
