The latest Jake McGee MLB and fantasy baseball news

Rays | Closer committee likely for Tampa Bay

Fri, 15 May 2015 15:34:32 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RPs Jake McGee (elbow) and Brad Boxberger will be used based on matchups and will both likely receive save opportunities, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: This is obviously a little bit of a blow to Boxberger's fantasy stock, but it was expected that McGee would rejoin to the closer mix when he returned. Both relievers should be owned in all formats, as they can help fantasy owners without earning every save for the Rays.

Rays | Jake McGee won't pitch consecutive days

Fri, 15 May 2015 14:30:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) said he will be eased back into the bullpen mix, and he will not pitch in consecutive days initially. He also noted he is open to whatever role he settles in.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners who've patiently stashed McGee are hoping he'll settle back into the ninth-inning role. However, with Brad Boxberger dominating in McGee's absence, it appears a committee is the best-case scenario for McGee early on. Boxberger has 10 saves with a 1.29 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP and a 12.9 K/9, after all.

Rays | Jake McGee with no set role

Fri, 15 May 2015 07:22:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) doesn't have a set role when he returns from the disabled list, according to manager Kevin Cash. "I don't anticipate anybody assuming any role," Cash said.

Fantasy Tip: Brad Boxberger has been too good to remove from the role for someone that doesn't have a long run of excellence at closer. McGee should fill in once in a while, but it's hard to see Boxberger taking much of a hit.

Rays | Jake McGee expected back this weekend

Thu, 14 May 2015 14:27:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) is expected to return to the team this weekend, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Brad Boxberger has been lights out in the closer role, as he has 10 saves with a 1.29 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP and a 12.9 K/9. Plus, he has gone his last nine appearances without allowing a run. McGee figures to enter the closer mix, but he may not be handed the job upon his arrival with the Rays. Both Boxberger and McGee are worth owning in the majority of mixed leagues.

Rays | Jake McGee could return Friday

Thu, 14 May 2015 09:51:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) could come off the disabled list Friday, May 15, after his sixth rehab appearance Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: McGee will probably have to earn his way into the closer mix with Brad Boxberger pitching so well. He's worth watching in mixed leagues.

Rays | Jake McGee sharp in rehab

Mon, 11 May 2015 18:02:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) struck out two batters and walked one in an inning of work in a rehab appearance for Class AAA Durham (N.C.) Monday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: McGee is rounding the corner in his rehab, and he might be back in the next few days. Fantasy owners will want to be patient, as he will likely be eased back into save situations and won't be the full-time stopper just yet.

Rays | Jake McGee could return this weekend

Mon, 11 May 2015 13:37:20 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) will make a rehab appearance with Class AAA Durham (N.C.) Monday, May 11, and he might only need one more outing before rejoining the team this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: McGee's impending return could complicate the ninth-inning picture in Tampa. Brad Boxberger has been very adequate as the team's closer with McGee out, and he'll likely continue to see at least a share of the closing work as the Rays look to ease McGee back in. Both relievers are worth owning in all leagues until the situation becomes clearer.

Rays | Jake McGee likely needs three more

Fri, 08 May 2015 08:09:11 -0700

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) will likely make three more rehab appearances for Triple-A Durham before coming off the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: One of those will likely be back-to-back outings. So he could be back in the middle of next week. Brad Boxberger has been phenomenal in the closer role, and it would take some serious tanking for McGee to overtake him.

Rays | Jake McGee close to returning

Wed, 06 May 2015 14:42:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) will pitch again for Triple-A Durham Friday, May 8, and he'll likely have at least one more rehab appearance after that.

Fantasy Tip: McGee could easily be back early next week, but it's unknown if he'll immediately be inserted back into the closer's role. There's a good chance the club will ease him back in, and Brad Boxberger, who has done a great job in the ninth in McGee's absence, will deserve to remain on all fantasy rosters until the situation becomes more clear.

Rays | Jake McGee makes rehab appearance

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:06:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) struck out a hitter in an inning in his third rehab outing for Triple-A Durham Tuesday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: McGee is getting very close to rejoining the team in the back end of the bullpen. Brad Boxgerger has done a fantastic job in the closer's role in McGee's absence, and the ninth inning could be fluid once McGee returns. However, if McGee is healthy and performing well, he's expected to eventually take over the closer's role. Both relievers should be owned in all fantasy formats for now, though.
