Updating a previous report, the Tampa Bay Rays don't have a set closer, according to manager Joe Maddon. He will reach to game situations, meaning anyone, including deposed closer Grant Balfour, could be called upon.
Fantasy Tip: Balfour is expected to regain the job if he does well in the coming weeks. He should be retained in most leagues. For now, it's an annoying cluster likely led by Joel Peralta and Jake McGee.

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon changed his tune Monday, June 9, and said the team will now go with a closer-by-committee. RP Grant Balfour and the rest of the relievers will be involved.
Fantasy Tip: Joel Peralta and Jake McGee are the main candidates to receive opportunities to close out games now, but Brad Boxberger, Cesar Ramos and Juan Oviedo might see a chance or two, as well. Peralta should be your first target if you're still searching for saves, then McGee.
