News: Grimm gave up a pair of two-run homers in his brief appearance against the Reds on Monday, falling to 2-4 in the process.
Impact: Grimm was spectacular in August -- until the month's last day. For the year he has a 2.09 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 53:15 K:BB in 38.2 innings.

News: Grimm pitched 1.2 scoreless innings against the White Sox on Friday and earned his 11th hold of the season.
Impact: The Cubs' bullpen is rounding into shape, and Grimm has been a very important piece. He's only given up six runs all season, and in his last 11 appearances - covering nine innings - he has a 0.00 ERA, 0.33 WHIP, and 10:0 K:BB. Oh, and he has six holds, two saves, and a win in that span too.

News: Grimm recorded the final out of Saturday's 8-6 win over the Giants to pick up his third save of the season.
Impact: James Russell and Jason Motte did their best to cough up a five-run lead in the ninth, but Grimm managed to put out the fire. Don't expect him to join in the competition for the Cubs' closer gig based on this result, but Motte likely put himself further away from regaining the role.
