Rays | Jake McGee records save

Fri, 27 Jun 2014 14:28:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee struck out two in a perfect inning for his second save in the first game of a doubleheader Friday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Joel Peralta hasn't pitched in four days, and Juan Oviedo has had two days off. McGee started the inning facing a lefty, but this could mean he has traction in the closer committee.

Rays | Jake McGee dominating with one pitch

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 19:14:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee has thrown his fastball 94 percent of the time this year, and manager Joe Maddon recently referred to him as the team's "true All-Star."

Fantasy Tip: The formula seems to be working. After all, McGee is 3-0 this season with a 1.36 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 33 innings. Perhaps more importantly, Maddon is giving him plenty of praise, which could mean a few more save opportunities heading McGee's way in near the future.

Rays | Grant Balfour was at his best Thursday

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 14:19:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Grant Balfour pitched his best outing of the season Thursday, June 19, according to manager Joe Madden. Madden said Balfour could return to the closer role organically, but it will not be orchestrated.

Fantasy Tip: The Rays have a lot invested in Balfour, so his strong outing is encouraging for him getting more save opportunities. Jake McGee and Juan Oviedo have recorded the team's last two saves and are worth roster spots if you are chasing saves.

Rays | Juan Oviedo records save

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 07:16:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Juan Oviedo recorded his first save Monday, June 16. He allowed a home run in the outing but secured a 5-4 win.

Fantasy Tip: We like Jake McGee more in the closer role, but his left-handed status and youth may be holding Joe Maddon back. Pick up Oviedo if you need saves.

Rays | More on closer committee

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 14:01:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Tampa Bay Rays don't have a set closer, according to manager Joe Maddon. He will reach to game situations, meaning anyone, including deposed closer Grant Balfour, could be called upon.

Fantasy Tip: Balfour is expected to regain the job if he does well in the coming weeks. He should be retained in most leagues. For now, it's an annoying cluster likely led by Joel Peralta and Jake McGee.
