Oliver's main pitch, by the way, is deemed a splitter by Statcast. He's thrown 396 and the fact that he's thrown 396 pitches in the majors this year tells you how effective it is. In his last 15 games he's won three, lost once and collected a save, while allowing ten hits, four walks and an unlucky five earned runs in 18.2 IP. In his last seven games (8.2) IP, he's allowed one hit, walked one and struck out 10.

Tampa Bay Rays — Oliver Drake struck out the side for his second save of the season yesterday.  Emilio Pagan got the day off after pitching in two straight and four of the previous five games.  Nick Anderson ended up with the win after pitching the eighth inning of a tie game and that left Drake for the save after the Rays took the lead in the bottom of the eighth.

Updated hierarchy: Pagan | Anderson | Drake.

This guy pitched for *5* MLB teams last year! (BP sez "the first time such a feat has happened in MLB history")

The Jan 5th Rotowire comment below cracks me UP! "he's already onto his second organization of 2019 just four days into the year, on pace for 182.5 teams this year."

I did not notice him when he was on an NL roster ... only when I read this at BP

Oliver Drake (P) TB - Jan. 4

Drake was sent from Toronto to Tampa Bay in exchange for cash considerations Friday, Juan Toribio of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Drake spent time with six organizations last calendar year, pitching for the Brewers, Indians, Angels, Blue Jays and Twins before moving to Tampa and then back to Toronto already in the offseason. Now back with the Rays, he's already onto his second organization of 2019 just four days into the year, on pace for 182.5 teams this year. The fact that the Rays have already acquired him twice this offseason suggests that his nomadic lifestyle may be about to end, but even a 3.24 FIP last season didn't help him settle down, so it's too early to tell for sure.
