News 
 Robbie Ray gave up one earned run on three hits while striking out three in 4.0 innings while earning the win against the Rangers on Thursday.
Jon Mathisen
Fri, Mar 6th
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.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma

Notes 
 Wouldn't it be the most Robbie Ray thing in the world if he got pulled at 4.2 innings each start this year? Great strikeouts, bad command. We know who he is.
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
 While the overall numbers fluctuate, Ray is largely the same guy he's always been. He's going to amass a ton of strikeouts and he's going to hand out free passes like a doctor handing out lollipops. It is just impossible to rely on a starter who can't top 175 innings or keep his WHIP below 1.33. Ray is certainly rosterable but close your eyes when he's pitching.
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.
