Grant Balfour got the seven out save Wednesday pitching a 2.1 scoreless innings striking out a one in the Rays 6-3 win over the Cardinals.

It's unclear whether or not this means that Balfour has reclaimed his closer role, or simply in the mix for saves with the rest of the "committee." Joe Maddon is the most progressive-saber-friendly manager in baseball, so if anyone could see the utility in playing match-ups, it's him. For now, Balfour is still your best bet for saves in Tampa.
