Rays signed reliever Michael Kohn to a one-year major-league deal.
Kohn made 25 appearances for the Angels in 2014 and posted a respectable 3.04 ERA. He was DFA'd by Los Angeles in early September and elected to become a free agent. He will work out of the Rays bullpen next year. Analyst: David Kerr View Profile
Sean Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the Rays loss to the Indians on Sunday.
Rodriguez's .211 average isn't pretty, but the 12 home runs and 41 RBIs in 96 games isn't terrible. He is a utility man for the Rays and doesn't have a large role cut out in the offense until someone gets hurt. While an average 2014 for Rodriguez, stay away from drafting him in 2015, but pay attention to him on the waiver wire in case a Rays infielder gets injured. Analyst: Colby Conway View Profile
Alex Cobb dropped to 10-9 after giving up four runs on 10 hits and no walks with five strikeouts over six innings in the Rays loss to the Indians on Sunday.
While his 10-9 record may not be all that pretty, he was still a great fantasy starting pitcher option. He accrued 149 strikeouts in 166.1 innings, and had a terrific 2.87 ERA. Cobb's record next year will be more indicative of his performance next year, and he should be trusted as a high-end #2 or solid #3 starting pitcher. Analyst: Colby Conway View Profile
Evan Longoria will become the third player in club history to play in every regular season game.
This will be the first time in his career in which he will be able to play every game for the Rays, which is an incredible feat in this era. However,, he is slashing .253/.321/.404 so maybe a day off here and there could have helped out his production in 2014. Analyst: Matthew Beck View Profile
Wil Myers went 2-for-4 with one RBI and a stolen base against the Indians on Saturday.
It's taken Myers a little more than a month to get back into the swing of things after missing so much time with a wrist injury, but he seems to be coming around lately. He's hit safely in four straight and while he has just one home run since his return, he's got five extra-base hits in September. he should continue to work in the offseason and be in full-force for 20156 spring training.

Jake McGee struck out the side for a perfect ninth inning and his 19th save as the Rays beat the Indians 2-0 on Saturday.
While he wasn't made the closer until the second half of the season, McGee put together an outstanding year as both a set-up man and a closer. The 19 saves were a fantastic bonus, but his 1.89 ERA and 11.36 K/9 were really where fantasy owners reaped the benefits. He should enter 2015 as the Rays ninth inning man.

Alex Colome tossed 6.1 scoreless innings and allowed just four hits and a walk with six strikeouts as the Rays beat the Indians 2-0 on Saturday.
The Rays really like Colome but many in the organization don't feel that he is ready for a full-time spot in their rotation. He pitched well on September 15, tossing 6.2 scoreless innings, but in his next outing, he was shelled for four runs in just one inning of work. There's solid strikeout potential to be had,. but there are times where his command just goes out the window. He'll get another opportunity to compete for a rotation spot next season.
