RIGHT-HANDED PITCHER JASON GRILLI DESIGNATED FOR ASSIGNMENT; OUTFIELDER MATT MURTON OPTIONED TO TRIPLE-A COLORADO SPRINGS
RHP Matt Daley reinstated from 15-day disabled list; Rockies recall outfielder Carlos Gonzalez

ST. LOUIS -- The Colorado Rockies announced the following roster moves prior to tonight's game: Right-handed pitcher Jason Grilli was designated for assignment and outfielder Matt Murton was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Additionally, the club has reinstated right-handed pitcher Matt Daley from the 15-day disabled list and recalled outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. Daley and Gonzalez (No. 5) will both be in uniform for tonight's game in St. Louis.

Grilli, 32, is 0-1 with one save and a 6.05 ERA (19.1 ip, 13 er) in 22 appearances as a reliever this season. He pitched 1.0 inning last night at Houston, allowing one run on 2 hits and a walk. He has allowed runs in each of his last 5 appearances, including 7 of his last 9 outings. The right-hander finished April with a 1.08 ERA (8.1 ip, 1 er), but logged a 9.90 ERA (10.0 ip, 11 er) in the month of May. Grilli was acquired by the Rockies from Detroit in exchange for minor league right-hander Zach Simons on April 30, 2008. He has pitched in 73 games since his Rockies debut last season.

Rangers acquire Grilli, outright Benson
Righty makes trek to Texas from Rox, adds veteran depth

By T.R. Sullivan / MLB.com

06/09/09 6:40 PM ET

ARLINGTON -- The Rangers acquired right-handed pitcher Jason Grilli from the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday and made room for him on the 25-man roster by outrighting pitcher Kris Benson to Triple-A Oklahoma.

The Rangers also placed pitcher Brandon McCarthy on the 15-day disabled list because of a stress fracture in his right shoulder blade and promoted pitcher Guillermo Moscoso from Oklahoma City to serve as the long man in the bullpen.

Benson has accepted the assignment to Oklahoma City rather than refusing it and becoming a free agent. The Rangers want him to start there, and he is tentatively scheduled to pitch Sunday.

But Benson is still experiencing some irritation in his right elbow from scar tissue that has grown back in a spot where he had Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery eight years ago. Benson will have the elbow checked before Sunday to see if he needs the scar tissue removed or if he can continue to pitch through it. He has had two cortisone shots that have not helped.

"I'm not concerned about going to Triple-A and starting," Benson said. "My only concern is I want to make sure I don't go out there and pitch four, five, six innings and feel the irritation like I did [early in the season]."

Benson started the season in the Rangers' rotation and was 1-1 with a 9.00 ERA in two starts before the elbow started bothering him. He was placed on the disabled list April 22 and then was put in the bullpen after he was activated May 6. He has a 7.94 ERA in six relief appearances and was falling into disuse.

The Rangers are hoping he can pitch effectively at Oklahoma City as a starter and be an option in case of injury. The Rangers have concerns about their depth with both McCarthy and Matt Harrison currently on the DL.

"Right now, he'll get an opportunity to be in a rotation," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "With the way our injuries are going, it's another piece for us, and he's a veteran."

Benson had never been a reliever before this season. Grilli, 32, is a veteran reliever who was 0-1 with a 6.05 ERA in 22 appearances for the Rockies this season, but he has a career ERA of 4.14 in 192 relief appearances over all or part of eight Major League seasons. He was a member of the Tigers' bullpen in 2006, when they went to the World Series, and he was scoreless in five relief appearances in the postseason.

"He throws strikes and keeps the ball on the ground," Washington said. "He's healthy and he pitched well in winning situations in Detroit. We're just looking for him to go out and be Jason Grilli. He doesn't need to try and impress us. He needs to impress himself. If he does that, we'll all be impressed."

Grilli has an above-average fastball and a slider. His biggest concern is control, as he has averaged 4.01 walks per nine innings over his career. The Rangers will use him in middle relief, but he has the ability to pitch multiple innings.

The Rangers acquired him for cash considerations after he was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week.

"I'm pretty excited," Grilli said. "The team is in first place and I'm glad to be here. We were last in our division and now I'm in first. I don't feel like I've done anything to deserve that. I'm not going to make excuses. I'll hold myself accountable. I've got a fresh start and I'm ready for it."

This is Moscoso's second time in the Major Leagues. He was up for a week earlier this month and pitched one scoreless inning on the last homestand against the Athletics before being sent to Oklahoma. He is 4-1 with a 4.10 ERA in 10 games, including eight starts, at Oklahoma City and Double-A Frisco this season.

He could have a short stay, but the Rangers are still undecided if Harrison is ready to come off the disabled list and pitch Thursday against the Blue Jays. He could get another start on a medical-rehabilitation assignment in the Minor Leagues while Derek Holland pitches against the Blue Jays.

If Harrison returns Thursday, Holland would go to the bullpen and Moscoso would most likely go back to the Minors.

Grilli, Richardson taken off 40-man roster
Postcards from Elysian Fields
Beat writer T.R. Sullivan
Posted on October 21, 2009 at 3:24 PM

Pitcher Jason Grilli has cleared outright waivers and refused assignment to the Minor Leagues. Grilli instead told the Rangers he is taking his free agency.

Grilli was 2-2 with a 4.78 ERA in 30 games with the Rangers after being acquired from the Rockies in June. He had a 2.00 ERA in June and July but it ballooned to 13.50 in August and 9.64 in September after he missed three weeks with inflammation in his elbow.

The Rangers also took catcher Kevin Richardson off the 40-man roster but are trying to resign him to a Minor League contract. He was 3-for-6 in limited time with the Rangers in August and September.

The Rangers now have 38 players in their 40-man roster

Tigers fans trash talk former Detroit pitcher Jason Grilli
By James Schmehl | MLive.com
October 22, 2009, 3:06PM




It’s been nearly two years since Jason Grilli was traded from Detroit and traded barbs with his former manager Jim Leyland.

Apparently, people haven’t forgotten.

Grilli, who was taken off Texas’ 40-man roster Wednesday, cleared outright waivers and refused assignment to the minors.

Despite the not-so-good news for the Royal Oak native, Grilli said via Twitter that he received feedback that wasn’t exactly sympathetic from Detroit fans.

GrillCheese49, Oct. 22: I am laughing so hard too cause I got some of the good 'OL Tiger fans on here talking some good ol junk. They Still love me!

Grilli is notorious amongst Tigers fans for his negative comments about the chemistry in the Tigers’ clubhouse following his trade to Colorado in 2008.

Grilli told Texas he will become a free agent this offseason, but it’s likely the Rangers will offer him a minor league deal with a spring training invite.

Grilli was 2-2 with a 4.78 ERA in 30 games with the Rangers after being acquired from the Rockies in June. He was 0-1 with a 3.29 ERA in 13 2/3 innings with the Tigers in 2008.

The Tigers will likely look to bulk their bullpen with the possible departures of Brandon Lyon and Fernando Rodney. Is it possible Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski consider the right-handed veteran?

According to Leyland back in May, 2008, Grilli isn’t in Detroit because “Jason Grilli didn't pitch good under pressure situations.”

So, my guess is no.

Grilli among four Tribe spring invites
Experienced reliever hopes to earn spot on young staff

By Jason Beck / MLB.com

12/02/09 7:15 PM EST

Jason Grilli is heading back to the American League Central. In the process, he's hoping he has a chance to stick around a while.

After bouncing around for the past two seasons, the veteran reliever has signed a Minor League contract with the Indians, who officially announced the deal Wednesday. Cleveland also announced Minor League deals with Spring Training invites for left-hander Mike Gosling and infielders Brian Buscher and Luis Rodriguez.

Grilli will compete for a job in Spring Training with a chance to provide another experienced arm to a Cleveland bullpen that could use some experience. He would get an $800,000 base salary if he spends the year in Cleveland, the same number he had this past season, plus incentives based on workload.

"I just like the fit," Grilli said by phone Wednesday afternoon. "I love the stadium. The division is something I'm very familiar with as far as travel and the players. There were just more positives than negatives."

Grilli had hinted at a deal on his Twitter account last week, saying he was moving on to his seventh Major League stop but not naming the team. Once news leaked Wednesday, he admitted he was heading back to Cleveland to play for his third team in the division.

Indians fans would best remember Grilli from Detroit, where he became a key long and middle man during the Tigers' run to the World Series in 2006. He pitched in a variety of situations in '07 and into '08 before he was traded to Colorado.

From there, it has been a stretch on the move. Grilli settled into setup duty with the Rockies in 2008, going 3-2 with a 2.93 ERA in 51 appearances before a slow start in '09 prompted Colorado to designate him for assignment. The Rangers put him into their bullpen, where he went 2-2 with a 4.78 ERA in 30 games, covering 26 1/3 innings and flashing good life on his fastball.

Once Texas removed him from the 40-man roster rather than deal with a potential arbitration case, he was on the move again, this time as a free agent. Between changing teams and heading to Spring Training, he counts eight times in which he and his family have packed up and moved over the past two years. Originally a first-round pick of the Giants, he also has pitched with the Marlins and White Sox.

He's hoping his latest destination gives him a shot to settle back into a regular role.

"People are seeing what I'm doing," Grilli said. "I've had just under five years of service time [in the Majors]. I've been consistent in the role that I've been given the past four seasons. I just want to continue to grow.

"Every year I call a pivotal year. This is the most pivotal year of my career. I'm tired of moving around. This might be the greatest fit, because [the Indians] need help in the bullpen."

They certainly could benefit from experience. Other than closer Kerry Wood, the only Tribe pitcher on the 40-man roster who will be 30 years old on Opening Day is starter Jake Westbrook. Grilli, who turned 33 years old last month, has 238 Major League appearances on his resume over the course of eight seasons.

Gosling will turn 30 next September. He made 15 appearances out of the Indians' bullpen this past season, allowing 14 earned runs on 30 hits over 25 innings.

Like Grilli, Buscher and Rodriguez are well aware of the AL Central, having both spent time with Minnesota. Buscher spent three years there, splitting this past season as a corner infielder between the Twins and Triple-A Rochester. He batted .235 with two homers and 12 RBIs in 136 at-bats in Minnesota.

Rodriguez, a Twins utility infielder from 2005-07, spent the past two seasons in San Diego. He hit .202 in San Diego in 2009, with two homers and 16 RBIs in 208 at-bats over 93 games.

Grilli had other opportunities, including interest from seven other teams and an opportunity with the Washington Nationals. He went with the Indians because of the opportunity and the location. Beyond knowing the team and the division, he also knows the drive up Interstate 90 to his hometown of Syracuse, N.Y.

"This is team No. 7," Grilli reflected. "All things being considered, I like Cleveland, the organization and the history, where they stand. I know they're in kind of a rebuilding phase. But just looking at the defense as a pitcher and the organization [helped]. Being that they've seen me pitch quite a bit when I was with the Tigers, they had the best chance to see me at my best, and they said they needed a veteran arm in the bullpen."

There's still a chance Grilli could change teams again. With a Minor League contract and no spot on the 40-man roster, he's eligible for next week's Rule 5 Draft. A team wanting to add an arm could draft him for $50,000 and bring him to Spring Training. If he didn't make the big league club, he would have to be offered back for $25,000.

"I'm very indifferent and immune to being jostled around," Grilli said. "If you see the landscape of my transaction sheet, it's pretty extensive. I fear nothing when I take the mound. I like the challenge. That's why I'm still here, and I'll be here until I decide to hang it up."

Brown, Grilli to undergo surgery
Injuries to outfielder, right-hander will hurt Indians' depth

By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com

03/06/10 3:28 PM EST

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The first cuts of Indians camp have come earlier than expected.

And these cuts will be all too literal for outfielder Jordan Brown and right-hander Jason Grilli.


Brown, the reigning International League batting champ, tore a meniscus in his right knee during outfield drills Friday and will have arthroscopic surgery early next week in Cleveland, head athletic trainer Lonnie Soloff announced. The surgery will cost Brown four to eight weeks of action, so he can officially be counted out of the competition in the Tribe's outfield.

Grilli, a non-roster invitee to camp, appears headed for potential season-ending surgery, because he has a tear in his right quadriceps, just above the knee. Soloff said there is a "high likelihood of surgical intervention" on the injury, but Grilli, at the Indians' urging, will receive a second opinion on the matter in the next few days. So count the veteran Grilli out of the competition in the Tribe's bullpen.

While these aren't considered major losses, where the Indians' 2010 plans are concerned, they are nonetheless a blow to the club's depth.

"It's unfortunate," manager Manny Acta said. "Those are two guys who were in the mix."

Brown's chances of landing an Opening Day spot seemed slim, in the wake of the signing of first baseman Russell Branyan, who will likely push Matt LaPorta back to left field. But Brown is an intriguing prospect for the Tribe, because he's done nothing but hit, when healthy, in the Minors.

Minor controversy erupted last year when Brown, on the heels of hitting .336 with a .913 OPS at Triple-A Columbus, was not given a September promotion to the bigs. He was hoping to use this camp to impress a new coaching staff and silence doubts about his defense and power, and he was off to a good start, having hit two homers in two intrasquad games.

"Hopefully this is a tiny little setback," Brown said. "If anybody is used to tiny little setbacks, it's this guy."

Brown, 26, was in the midst of outfield drills when he felt a pop in his knee.

"It's a step I've taken a million times," he said. "The doctor said the knee is a funny thing. You can do something to it with just an ordinary move."

Grilli, 33, was also injured on a rather routine drill. He was running sprints on the agility field and injured his quadriceps while rounding a cone.

Soloff called the injury significant and somewhat rare for a baseball player.


"You see it in football players," Soloff said.

Grilli went 2-3 with a 5.32 ERA in 52 appearances for the Rockies and Rangers last year.

Pirates bring back Grilli on one-year contract
By Jenifer Langosch / MLB.com | 12/12/11 10:14 PM EST

PITTSBURGH -- Jason Grilli will be back in the Pirates' bullpen next season, having secured his spot on the club by agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with Pittsburgh. According to mlbtraderumors.com, the contract will pay Grilli $1.1 million in 2012.

After beginning the 2011 season in the Phillies' Minor League system, Grilli was granted his release on July 19 so that he could sign with Pittsburgh two days later. He went on to make 28 appearances and post a 2.48 ERA with the Pirates. Grilli, 35, struck out 37 and walked 15 in those 32 2/3 innings.

The right-hander quickly worked his way into a setup role and was scored upon just twice in his final 19 appearances.

Grilli is likely to be considered for a setup role again in 2012, particularly with Jose Veras now gone and the Pirates unsure of whether Evan Meek will bounce back to his 2010 form. This next year will be Grilli's 10th in the big leagues. He has pitched for six different teams.

This was to be Grilli's last year of arbitration eligibility, though this agreement eliminates the possibility of Grilli taking the Pirates to an arbitration hearing. Grilli is slated to become a free agent after the 2012 season.
