Brad Boxberger was forced to miss the start of the season after undergoing abdominal muscle surgery in March 2016. Just 27 games and no saves later, he was 4-3, 4.81 with no saves and just 24 1/3 innings of work in the closer role.
In 2017, he was out for 30 games due to a right flexor strain. As of this writing, his record stands at 3-3 with a 3.38 era in 29 1/3 innings pitched.
It seemed obvious that Alex Colome would not be returning to his original position after posting back-to-back seasons of 37 and 47 saves. On November 30th, the Rays dealt him to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for minor league pitcher Curtis Taylor.
He was acquired by the Diamondbacks. As the closer in 2018, he was 3-7 with an ERA of 4.39 in 60 games, walking 32 batters in 53 1/3 innings, and recording 32 saves.
On February 6, 2019, he signed a one-year contract worth $2.2 million with the Kansas City Royals after the Arizona Diamondbacks failed to offer him a contract by the end of November.
In June, he was released by the Kansas City Royals after posting a 5.40 ERA with a 16/27 BB/K ratio. On August 4, the Washington Nationals dismissed him after giving him a chance due to an underwhelming bullpen.
He pitched well in Double A Harrisburg, but his 1.04 ERA in the minors was not enough to get him called up to the majors. On August 23, he was released from Louisville’s Triple-A affiliate after being signed by Cincinnati.
