FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWS: RAYS TO SIGN CLOSER GRANT BALFOUR

                                                              

The Tampa Bar Rays will sign free agent closer Grant Balfour to a contract according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.  This comes a month after Balfour had his contract with the Baltimore Orioles nixed due to issues that showed up in his physical.  With Balfour coming back to town, he will push Heath Bell into a setup gig.

Analysis:  Nice landing spot for Balfour who has been a terrific and underrated closer the last two seasons.  This is the kind of closer yours truly will invest in as Balfour always comes cheaper than his numbers show and the issue with his physical will score some more people away as well.  Draft him with confidence.
