The Tampa Bay Rays acquired RP Heath Bell from the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, Dec. 3, in exchange for RP Justin Choate, $500,000 and a player to be named. The Miami Marlins are still on the hook for $3.5 million of the $9 million owed to Bell. The Rays will pay Bell $5.5 million.

Fantasy Tip: Based on Bell's experience, we'd guess he's got a decent chance of competing for and winning the closer gig in Tampa. His main competitors will be Jake McGee and Joel Peralta. Amid inconsistencies with the Snakes he flashed signs of hope that he can bounce back to form, although his volatile ways will be scary in the AL East.
