Rays' Cash changes course, plans to take closer-by-committee approach
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

A day after indicating Brad Boxberger would be the team's closer while Jake McGee is sidelined with an elbow injury, Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday he is not going to name a closer, per the Tampa Bay Times. Cash added they will use several relievers in save situations.

"There's going to be guys that we'll lean on to pitch in those leveraged situations," Cash said, per MLB.com. "But it just doesn't make sense to come out and name a closer when the game could be on the line in the seventh or eighth inning."

Cash added they will revisit the closer situation once McGee comes off the disabled list. McGee is expected to miss the first month of the season.

Along with Boxberger, Grant Balfour, Kevin Jepsen and Ernesto Frieri could all be used in save situations.

"We're comfortable with all of our bullpen options," Cash said. "I don't see us leaning toward anybody just waiting to pitch the ninth inning."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rays reliever Grant Balfour threw 38 pitches Friday in live batting practice Friday and is on track to make his spring debut Monday against the Pirates, according to The Tampa Tribune.

“Everything was very, very good. He felt great,” manager Kevin Cash said. “Didn’t even realize he threw that many pitches. I asked him how many, and he said 25. He missed by almost 15 pitches.”

Rays RP Grant Balfour will face live hitters on Friday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rays reliever Grant Balfour opted to face live hitters on Friday instead of Grapefruit League game on Saturday, according to the Tampa Tribune.

"That was his choice," manager Kevin Cash said. "Just basically wants to fine tune it a little more. That's fine. Not that concerned about how many outings he gets off the mound. He's done this for 10, 12 years."
