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
Angels manager Joe Maddon told reporters that it's a "safe bet" to expect Hansel Robles to be the team's closer to start the 2020 season.
Blaine Blontz
Mon, Feb 24th
 Nick Anderson tossed a scoreless inning on Wednesday against Boston, striking out two while allowing one hit and two walks.

Notes 
 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
Robles seems like the guy in Anaheim, but he's not in the tier of relievers where you feel super comfortable about it.
Michael Waterloo - 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.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
The regression never came for Robles last year, as he somehow managed to avoid walks despite struggling with them his entire career. He'll enter the year as the Angels' closer but it's a big gamble to think lightning will strike twice with such a mercurial pitcher. The safer bet is that Robles' walk and home run rates will return to his career levels, making him a closer unlikely to hold his job all year.
