Jason Grilli Placed on the Disabled List

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed right-handed pitcher Jason Grilli on the 15-day disabled list, retro to April 21st, with a left oblique strain. Jared Hughes has been recalled from Indianapolis to replace Grilli on the roster.

With Grilli on the disabled list, Mark Melancon should take over as the team’s closer. Grilli blew two saves over the weekend, and hasn’t pitched since the second blown save.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.

Somebody not on the ball upstairs. Hughes was ineligible to be recalled.

Not when there is a injury.

Grilli’s injury was backdated to to 4/21. Hughes was already on the ML roster for part of that time. Thus he was ineligible to be added and they’ll have to bring up somebody else for today, or push Grilli’s date forward to whatever date it was that Hughes rejoined Indy earlier this week.

Its too early yet for me to say “I told you so”. 🙂

Any thoughts as to whether the last 2 poor outings were tied to the oblique strain ? I don’t think so, as both mistakes seemed more due to location , and Grilli didn’t show any signs of being hurt.
