Rays' Drew Smyly: Wins arbitration case for $3.75 million
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew Smyly won his arbitration case and will receive a $3.75 million salary in 2016, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports.

Coming off a sterling finish to his injury-shortened 2015 season, Smyly won MLB's first arbitration hearing in 2016. He'll likely slot in as Tampa's third or fourth starter, with durability the biggest question mark.

Rays' Xavier Cedeno: Could see eighth inning as bullpen's new top lefty
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cedeno is likely to see some action in the eighth inning as the bullpen's new top lefty following the Jake McGee trade, according to Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

On almost any other team, Cedeno would have been his team's top lefty last year, at least going by performance. After five forgettable appearances in Washington, Cedeno was traded to the Rays and promptly started dominating, registering a 2.09 ERA in 43.0 innings while striking out a batter per inning. Alex Colome is still best positioned to be Kevin Cash's formal set-up man, but Tampa Bay's liberal usage of its bullpen means Cedeno should see quite a few opportunities.

Rays' Alex Colome: Likely to assume set-up role after McGee trade
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Colome is likely to take over the eighth inning following the Jake McGee trade, according to Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Colome was stellar as a reliever last year, pitching a 44-to-7 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 40.2 innings while never allowing a home run. With a career as a starter seemingly in the rear-view mirror, the 27-year-old should be free to unleash mid-90s heat late in the game. However, the Rays have always been creative in their pitcher usage, so there's a good chance it wouldn't be a traditional set-up role, as time could be split with Xavier Cedeno, the bullpen's new top lefty.
