Rays | Brad Boxberger to pitch Thursday

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:29:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger (oblique) did well in his rehab outing Monday, July 18, and will pitch again Thursday, July 21, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Boxberger surprisingly was one of the best fantasy closers in 2015 with a league-leading 41 saves despite a 3.71 ERA, but he's thrown just two-thirds of an inning this year due to injuries, and his chance at save opportunities when he returns are likely out the window with Alex Colome dominating in the ninth in his absence. Stash Boxberger in deeper leagues but don't hold your breath for save opportunities when he's back.

Rays | Brad Boxberger to begin rehab

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 09:27:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Class A Charlotte Monday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Although Boxberger led the majors in saves in 2015, he might not regain the closer's role in Tampa Bay once he returns from the disabled list because Alex Colome has done an excellent job in his absence. Owners in deep mixed leagues looking for a speculative stash for saves should hang on to him.

Rays | Brad Boxberger throws batting practice

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 16:10:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger (oblique) did well in pitching a live batting practice session Wednesday, July 6. He will throw a bullpen on Saturday, July 9, before working another live batting practice session in Port Charlotte on Tuesday, July 12.

Fantasy Tip: This was his first time facing live hitters since he was placed back on the disabled list more than a month ago, so this is certainly a step in the right direction. However, with Alex Colome doing a wonderful job serving as the closer, even making the All-Star team, it's far from a certainty that Boxberger is able to regain his job. As a result, he's only worth stashing in the deepest leagues in case he gets an opportunity to close again down the line.

Rays | Two Tampa relievers throw Monday

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 11:59:34 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RPs Alex Colome (biceps) played catch, and Brad Boxberger (oblique) threw a light bullpen session Monday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Colome projects to return soon and pick up where he left off in the ninth inning (19 saves with a 1.76 ERA and 11.2 K/9). He should be owned in all fantasy leagues and started confidently once he is back. Boxberger, on the other hand, is more of a speculative stash for saves starved teams in deep mixed leagues.

Rays | Brad Boxberger has bullpen session

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 20:57:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger (oblique) threw 15 fastballs in a bullpen session Thursday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Boxberger can be stashed in deeper leagues, but even when healthy, he could have a tough time unseating Alex Colome.

Rays | Brad Boxberger to play catch

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 19:24:25 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger (oblique) will resume playing catch Monday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: Boxberger is expected to miss two to six more weeks because of a strained left oblique. He continues to be worthy of stashing if you can afford the roster space, although Alex Colome has done a phenomenal job in his absence, with 19 saves and 38 strikeouts over 30 innings entering play Friday. Colome's emergence means Boxberger might not return to the closer's role on a full-time basis once he is healthy enough to resume playing.

Rays | Brad Boxberger out 4-8 weeks

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 16:00:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger (oblique) is dealing with a left oblique strain and is expected to miss four to eight weeks. The Rays will have a better sense of his timeline after the first week.

Fantasy Tip: Boxberger returned from the DL for one outing before going right back to the infirmary. At least his injury isn't season-ending, but it's a serious blow to his fantasy value, as he's probably not worth stashing at this point in shallow leagues if you don't have the room. Alex Colome has been fantastic and is perfect in 12 save chances. Hopefully you didn't cut bait with Colome too soon.

Rays | Brad Boxberger could be out a month

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 15:27:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger (oblique) is being checked by team doctors, and they think he's dealing with an oblique strain, which would mean he'd be out at least a month.

Fantasy Tip: After leading baseball in saves last season, Boxberger just hasn't been able to get healthy. Oblique injuries are tough to come back from, especially for pitchers. He's still worth stashing, as he could see save chances when he returns. However, Alex Colome is perfect in 12 save chances this year and should at least have a share of the role later this year.
