(5/18/2015) Reliever Jake McGee's stint on the disabled list for the season's first six weeks allowed Brad Boxberger to step in and assume the Rays' closer role, which he's excelled in with a 10-for-10 save record thus far, reports the Tampa Tribune.

“Absolutely,” Boxberger said. “I’m comfortable there right now. I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job there in that role, but with McGee coming back and everything he’s done, it will be interesting to see what they’re going to do.”
