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 
 Rogers seems to have the trust of the Twins, and with them being the favorites in the AL Central, expect a ton of save opportunities.
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
 Rogers didn't have the Twins' closer role at the outset of the season, but he proved himself as Minnesota's best reliever pretty quickly. He built on his strong gains in 2018, further upping his strikeout rate and lowering his walk rate. He likely won't see all of the save chances this year for the Twins, but he should lead the way in opportunities. That, along with his strong overall numbers, makes him a reliever to target in fantasy.
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.
