Rays | Xavier Cedeno pitches in ninth

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:47:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Xavier Cedeno pitched a clean ninth inning in a non-save situation against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, June 29, with a 4-0 lead.

Fantasy Tip: Cedeno gave up a leadoff hit and struck out one to drop his ERA on the year to 3.76. The Rays will likely play the matchups in the ninth with Alex Colome on the DL, and Erasmo Ramirez and Matt Andriese could factor in in the short term, as well. Don't invest heavily, but after Wednesday's game, Cedeno may be the favorite for closing opportunities.

Rays | Tampa to play matchups in ninth

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 14:41:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash said the team will "play matchup game, piecing it together" in the ninth inning with RP Alex Colome (biceps) injured. RPs Erasmo Ramirez, Matt Andriese and Xavier Cedeno are all likely to figure in.

Fantasy Tip: Colome's injury isn't serious and he could be back as soon as July 4, so don't invest heavily in Tampa's ninth-inning picture without him in the short term. Ramirez is likely your best bet if you're desperate for saves in the meantime, but temper your expectations.

Rays | Alex Colome unlikely to be available

Mon, 09 May 2016 16:22:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Alex Colome is unlikely to be available in a save situation after working three straight days and four of the last five days. RPs Erasmo Ramirez and Xavier Cedeno could be options in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Colome has been excellent in the ninth-inning role with Brad Boxberger injured to begin the season. Colome has a 2.08 ERA, 11.1 K/9 and nine saves, and he has made a case to remain in the role even when Boxberger is healthy. That'd considerably raise his standing as a closer, but it's uncertain how the Rays will treat the situation. Keep Boxberger stashed everywhere until we know more.

Rays | Brad Boxberger the sole closer

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 16:26:28 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger is now Tampa's sole closer after they traded RP Jake McGee to the Colorado Rockies Thursday, Jan. 28. RPs Xavier Cedeno and Enny Romero are the only left-handers in the bullpen now, alongside right-handed RPs Alex Colome, Steven Geltz, Danny Farquhar and Andrew Bellatti.

Fantasy Tip: Boxberger struggled in the second half last year, but now he has much more leeway and rope as Tampa's ninth-inning closer. The right-hander had a 3.71 ERA last year and a career-high 41 saves.

Rays | Tampa to go with matchups in ninth

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 15:37:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash said he will play the matchups with both RPs Brad Boxberger and Jake McGee (knee) out Thursday, Aug. 20. RPs Alex Colome, Steven Geltz, Xavier Cedeno or Brandon Gomes could all pitch either the eighth or ninth innings.

Fantasy Tip: McGee is having surgery and is likely done for the rest of this year, which gives Boxberger more rope as the team's closer. Boxberger has struggled of late. If you're speculating, Geltz may be your best bet in deeper leagues in case Tampa goes in another direction.

Nationals | Rafael Soriano hopes to make playoff roster

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 16:15:32 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Rafael Soriano will have his playoff fate decided in the next 10 days after RP Drew Storen has locked down the closer's role. Soriano is feeling more comfortable with his setup role and said he'd be ready for the playoffs after a few more games. Soriano preserved a four-run lead with a perfect ninth inning Thursday, Sept. 18. The team's final relief spot for the postseason will likely come down to Soriano and RPs Jerry Blevins, Xavier Cedeno and Blake Treinen. Manager Matt Williams still believes in Soriano.
