Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon said RP Fernando Rodney remains the team's closer, and there has been no thought to removing him from the role.
Fantasy Tip: Rodney has struggled this season, and he's already blown more saves than he did all of last season. Regardless, he's earned a ton of rope from Maddon, so it'll take more gaffes to cough up the closer's role to Joel Peralta or someone else.

Tampa Bay Rays RP Fernando Rodney is likely unavailable to pitch Friday, May 17, after tossing 35 pitches in his blown save Thursday, May 16. RP Joel Peralta is likely to close if a save situation arises.
Fantasy Tip: If you own Peralta in an AL league, make sure he's in your lineup tonight. Rodney shouldn't be on the hot seat for ninth-inning duties. We knew he was in line for some regression after a career year in 2012. It'll take a lot more for him to lose his job.
