Rays snap a five-game losing streak, three of them to the Orioles (no lie), as Nick gets his first save.

Red Sox go down again.

Well said by Kevin Cash.

Nick Anderson (P) TB - Jul. 09

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=742833

The Rays are specifically not naming Anderson (or anyone else) the closer, John Romano of The Tampa Bay Times reports. "We've tried to stay away from naming specific roles because we think it's a benefit to our club to be able to be versatile and prioritize matchups," manager Kevin Cash said. "But there's no way you can doubt the value of how challenging getting the last three outs of the game is."

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The Rays had 11 pitchers record saves last year, but Anderson wasn't one of them. Yet following the Emilio Pagan trade, he's the favorite to inherit at least the majority part of the role, but given the Rays' approach to the role, perhaps a little caution is advised, despite his excellent skills.

Despite baggies' wishful thinking on Feb. 9, the experts went with Eugene.

CBS $16

LABR $13

Tout Wars $15

If they're right, AP4 is too low.

When spring training came to a crashing halt: 5 games, 5 IP, 2 H, 3 BB, 6 SO, no runs.

The new saver for Tampa after they traded Pagan to San Diego.

Eh.  It may happen, but I doubt it.  I'm trying to cheap out the bullpen lately, and I have toppers on other relievers.  Yeah, he was great last year -- and TB won't hesitate to go elsewhere, which is smart, but bad for fantasy owners.

I know the Rays don't always use the same reliver to close games, but Pagan had 16 saves in the 2h last year. And he was worth $30 in 4x4. I would keep him at $15 in 4x4. Or at least try to trade him. 

As for Anderson, he's a fine middle reliever, but $5 seems a bit pricey for a guy with 1 career save.

I am lucky. I have him for $5 in two leagues. It's often better to be lucky than good!

I can keep Pagan in an AL-only 4x4 12-team league for $15, and I really doubt I will.  Tampa does a lot of different stuff with their bullpen.

A Drooker Pick in the Guide: "The Rays bullpen is totally unpredictable but he had 110 K's in 65 IP."
