Prior to the delay of the MLB season, Nick Anderson was in line to see a majority of the save opportunities in Tampa Bay.

 The Phillies and closer Hector Neris avoided arbitration by reaching an agreement on a one-year $4.6 million deal. The contract includes a $7 million option for 2021.

Notes 
 If Neris is the guy in Philly, he'll finish a lot higher than the 153rd player.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
We know that Anderson should be the locked-in closer for the Rays, but we also know how the Rays work. Proceed with caution.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Neris rebounded from a spotty 2018 to become an incredibly reliable reliever last year and tally 28 saves for the Phillies. His stuff isn't overpowering and his control is mediocre, but his split-finger is elite and he leaned into it more than ever. The resulting increase in ground balls helped stabilize Neris' numbers last year and should again make him a reliable, if unexciting, option in the bullpen in 2020.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Anderson was exceptional with the Rays, though Emilio Pagan got the vast majority of the save chances. With Pagan now out of the way, Anderson may have the chance to lead a committee of Diego Castillo and Jose Alvarado. Even if he doesn't get the majority of the save chances, if Anderson pitches like he did with the Rays last year (52.6% strikeout rate), he'll be worth owning no matter what.
