Gregerson, 32, was the Astros' 2015 and the 2016 opening day closer. But Gregerson lost the job in June after a stretch of four blown saves in eight chances. But Gregerson has been effective in his last 30 games, he is 3-0 with a 2.79 ERA with seven saves in his last 29 innings.
Giles and his wife are expecting the family's first child -- Giles will have as many as three days away from the team on the paternity list.
Giles, 25, is the Astros current closer. He is currently 1-0 with 0.59 ERA over his last 15 games with 30 strikeouts over 15 1/3 innings.
