Remember when there was talk that Jason Grilli couldn’t be a closer? Today he was named MLB’s Delivery Man of the Month for the month of April. The award recognizes the best reliever each month. Grilli had an 0.82 ERA and 17 strikeouts in 11 innings of work in April, and went 10-for-10 in save opportunities. He’s currently tied with Mariano Rivera and Sergio Romo for the most saves in the majors, and has more strikeouts and a lower ERA than either pitcher. I guess now we can call Grilli a “proven closer”.
