11:18 AM ET 07.23 | With all due respect (not much) to Ryan Braun, the biggest news out of the NL Central on Monday wasn't that the Brewers will be without their former MVP. The biggest news was that the Pittsburgh Pirates might be without closer Jason Grilli for an extended period of time. The injury is being described as right forearm discomfort and Grilli is expected to undergo an MRI today. The immediacy of Grilli's departure from the game and the reports that Grilli was hanging his head in the clubhouse afterward suggest that this is a potentially catastrophic injury to the all-star closer.

They could use Melancon. He did some closing for the Astros a few years ago.
