Disabled List Updates: Brandon Lyon and Luke Gregerson

The DL on the DL

Updates from around Major League Baseball on players who are "freshly back" from the disabled list or "newly gone" to the DL.

Freshly Back:
  • Houston Astros RHP Brandon Lyon: Lyon was on the DL for a total of 35 days after being placed there on May 5th with biceps tendinitis and a partial rotator cuff tear. Lyon started the season as the Astros closer, but was not doing very well in the role, with four blown saves and two losses, while sporting an ERA over seven. Despite this, he will gradually work his way back into the closers role, according to Alyson Footer. Mark Melancon had been the closer while Lyon was gone, accumulating six saves, two blown saves and a loss with a 1.78 ERA. Jose Valdez was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Newly Gone:
  • San Diego Padres RHP Luke Gregerson - 15-Day DL, Strained left oblique: Gregerson has been a major part of the Padres bullpen throughout his career, appearing in 152 games the past two seasons. He tied the major-league record of 40 holds last year. This is only his second DL stint in his career, the previous one being for right shoulder inflammation in 2009. RHP Evan Scribner will replace him in the bullpen.
