Rays RHP Kevin Jepsen sees 'friendly competition' for closer role


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Rays right-hander Kevin Jepsen told reporters that it'll be a "friendly competition" between his bullpen-mates for the closer role. With Jake McGee not set to return from elbow surgery at least until May, Jepsen could be in competition with last year's closer, Grant Balfour.

"I think it's a friendly competition," Jepsen said. "I think it's always a good thing when you have competition amongst players going into the season. [It] keeps everybody hungry. A lot of times during Spring Training, you're just getting your work in. But anytime there's a chance to move up or be in a different role than you're used to, it brings out some good competition and only makes you better."

The 28-year-old posted a 1.89 ERA over 71 1/3 innings last year.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Joe Maddon planning on closer-by-committee approach in 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) The emergence of left-hander Jake McGee, who nailed down 18 saves after taking over the closer job in mid-June, has not convinced Joe Maddon to plan on sticking with him solely in that role for the Rays next year. Maddon is looking at a closer-by-committee approach in 2015.

"I kind of like the closer-less bullpen, where you really can match up," Maddon told the Tampa Tribune. "We've done where the eighth inning requires this skill set and the ninth inning may require this skill set, and you have several guys who don't mind the pressure of those last three outs. For me, it looks like it would be best to stay the way we are."

McGee and early-season Grant Balfour have 30 of the team's 36 saves this year.
