The Tampa Bay closer set a major league record for earned run average by a relief pitcher in 2012, when he rebounded from a disappointing pair of seasons with the Los Angeles Angels to convert 48 of 50 save opportunities and finish with a sparkling 0.60 ERA in his first year with the Rays.
Besides ranking second in the majors in saves behind Jim Johnson's 51 for Baltimore, the 35-year-old was a first-time All-Star, topped the big leagues in save percentage, and set career highs for appearances and strikeouts.
