Rays | Final rotation spot to be settled Wednesday

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon said the No. 5 rotation spot will be decided Wednesday, March 27, after SP Jeff Niemann makes his final spring appearance.

Fantasy Tip: Niemann is competing with Roberto Hernandez for the gig, and if Niemann has another rough outing, Hernandez could win the spot. Niemann's velocity has been down this spring as he works on his cut fastball. Both pitchers are better off being owned in AL-only leagues.
