Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger is now Tampa's sole closer after they traded RP Jake McGee to the Colorado Rockies Thursday, Jan. 28. RPs Xavier Cedeno and Enny Romero are the only left-handers in the bullpen now, alongside right-handed RPs Alex Colome, Steven Geltz, Danny Farquhar and Andrew Bellatti.
Fantasy Tip: Boxberger struggled in the second half last year, but now he has much more leeway and rope as Tampa's ninth-inning closer. The right-hander had a 3.71 ERA last year and a career-high 41 saves.

Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash said he will play the matchups with both RPs Brad Boxberger and Jake McGee (knee) out Thursday, Aug. 20. RPs Alex Colome, Steven Geltz, Xavier Cedeno or Brandon Gomes could all pitch either the eighth or ninth innings.
Fantasy Tip: McGee is having surgery and is likely done for the rest of this year, which gives Boxberger more rope as the team's closer. Boxberger has struggled of late. If you're speculating, Geltz may be your best bet in deeper leagues in case Tampa goes in another direction.

Tampa Bay Rays RP Steven Geltz has been encouraged by high-leverage moments since his recall from Triple-A Durham Monday, Sept. 1. He also has received an early lesson in the value of a short-term memory in the majors. He surrendered a game-deciding home run Thursday, Sept 4, against the Toronto Blue Jays. "As pitcher and especially a reliever, you've got to learn to have a short-term memory," Geltz said. "You can't dwell on that stuff. It's going to happen. You throw strikes, you get hit. I made a bad pitch, he hit it."
