Rays | Grant Balfour could see more chances

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon said he expects RP Grant Balfour to see more save chances later this season. Balfour is 0-2 with a 6.46 ERA in 24 games this year, and he has nine saves in 11 chances. He has walked 20 in 23 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Balfour probably shouldn't be outright dropped in deep mixed leagues and AL-only leagues just yet. Maddon will allow for bullpen competition in case an option sticks out for the ninth in the near future. Based on Maddon's statements, it looks like he'll consider handing the role back to Balfour eventually.
