News 
  Prior to the delay of the MLB season, Nick Anderson was in line to see a majority of the save opportunities in Tampa Bay.
Blaine Blontz
Mon, Mar 23rd
  Nick Anderson tossed a scoreless inning on Wednesday against Boston, striking out two while allowing one hit and two walks.

Notes 
 Peripherals hate what Minor did in 2019, but there gets a point in the draft where you're OK taking him for the volume he'll provide.
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
 The Rangers pushed Minor to reach 200 strikeouts and, although his 3.59 ERA shows he surpassed expectations, there was really fairly little to get excited about. Minor's FIP and xFIP were substantially higher than his ERA, his WHIP was mediocre, and his strikeout rate hardly impressed. He's a pitcher you draft to solidify the back end of your rotation, but nothing more.
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.
