Gaston flip-flops on Jays’ closer; Gregg replaces Frasor

Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston has named Kevin Gregg his new closer, in place of Jason Frasor.

Frasor is 3-for-5 in save opportunities this season, while is Gregg 3-for-3, including a 1-2-3 inning Tuesday night against the White Sox.

"Just had a talk with them, just going to reverse the roles a little bit until Frasor can get back to where we think he should be," said Gaston before Wednesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox. "You can blow a save, you just don’t want to lose a game. That’s a short rope."

Frasor inherits Gregg’s former eighth-inning setup role.
