Tampa Bay Rays RP Kevin Jepsen fell to 1-5 on the year with a loss to the Cleveland Indians Sunday, June 21. He allowed one run on two hits and walked one in two-thirds of an inning.
Fantasy Tip: Jepsen has seen some save chances during the year, but his worst stretch of the season has coincided with former closer Jake McGee looking dominant. McGee and Brad Boxberger look like the pitchers to own in Tampa Bay's bullpen.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Kevin Jepsen asked pitching coach Mike Butcher for another chance to close for the team after he blew a save opportunity Saturday, June 21. "I told Butch, 'Don't let that one outing change your decisions,' I want that opportunity," Jepsen said. "In that situation, I'm coming right after guys. I'm not going to walk a guy or shy away from contact."
Fantasy Tip: While it's nice that Jepsen isn't shying away from the pressure, it would be even nicer had he closed out the game Saturday. As it stands, Joe Smith will likely get another chance to show he can handle the ninth inning.
