Gregerson, Thayer may share closer role
PITTSBURGH -- Right-hander Luke Gregerson could share the Padres' closer job with right-hander Dale Thayer while Huston Street is on the disabled list. Street strained his left calf on Friday.
"We are going to talk about it -- it's fluid," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I think a combination of Thayer or Gregerson, I think is the way it looks.
"Thayer did a nice job when Street went down before, with five saves in five opportunities. You could see a combination of those two guys depending on usage and rest and a number of other factors."
