2017 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: JOSE DE LEON COMING UP AS A RELIEVER FOR RAYS

There was initial excitement Monday when it was announced that the Tampa Bay Rays would promote top minor league power arm Jose De Leon from the minor leagues for Monday's game versus the Texas Rangers but that initial dose of optimism faded quickly when it was learned he would at least initially be used as a reliever.  De Leon has rocked some major strikeouts rates in the minors leagues first with the Los Angeles Dodgers and the with the Rays after coming over in the Logan Forsythe deal.  On the one hand, maybe the Rays are grooming De Leon to take over the closer role since they are expected to move ninth inning man Alex Colome sometime this summer but also perhaps they are keeping his innings down a bit early on so that a move to the rotation later can last toward the end of 2017.  Either way De Leon should be added in almost all fantasy baseball leagues on his potential alone as a power arm and a move to the rotation eventually would make him even that much more a person of interest.
