Happy birthday, Jason Grilli

Happy birthday to Jason Grilli, who turns 34 today.

Grilli was the #4 overall pick of the San Francisco Giants in 1997, between Troy Glaus and Vernon Wells.  He bounced around for a while until sticking in the majors as a reliever a few years ago. 

Grilli was acquired by the Rangers from the Colorado Rockies in June, 2009, and did a decent job in a middle relief role for Texas. 

He missed all of 2010 after having surgery in the spring to repair a quadriceps tendon.
