Player Notes
Rays manager Kevin Cash admitted Sunday that Brad Boxberger is expected to be the Rays primary fill-in at closer while Jake McGee is sidelined.

Advice: Cash elaborated, "With some other guys, but for what Box did last year and the confidence we have in him, I would definitely anticipate him pitching in those leverage situations." While it's unclear if he has any chance of holding the job once McGee is up and running, Boxberger should have plenty of mixed league value for the first month-plus of the season.

Brad Boxberger got the start for the Rays against the Red Sox on Sunday and retired Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz in the order.

Advice: Boxberger was originally scheduled to work later in the game in what was a bullpen day for the Rays, but he requested the chance to face the top of the lineup. Boxberger has allowed two runs in 7 1/3 innings this spring. He'd seem to be the favorite for saves in the Tampa Bay pen while Jake McGee is out. However, it doesn't sound like the Rays will name a closer.
