Rays | Jake McGee tosses an inning

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:43:35 -0700

Rays | Jake McGee cleared to pitch

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 07:42:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) has been cleared to begin appearing in games Thursday, April 16, at extended spring training.

Fantasy Tip: McGee could be back in a couple weeks, but the team will likely ease him in. Brad Boxberger has been lights out with three saves and seven K's in 4 1/3 innings. McGee isn't guaranteed to be the closer, but he could figure in the mix in the near future.

Rays | Jake McGee throws Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:21:31 -0700

Rays | Jake McGee facing hitters Thursday

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 13:34:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) will throw his first live batting practice session Thursday, April 9.

Fantasy Tip: McGee continues to work his way back from elbow surgery and projects to miss the first month of the season. Currently, Brad Boxberger is serving as the closer, but McGee is expected to return to the role when healthy. Still, there are no guarantees in the closer racket, so while worth stashing, McGee might not return to the ninth inning if Boxberger thrives.

Rays | Brad Boxberger to fill in at closer

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 06:28:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Brad Boxberger will likely see the biggest share of the closer role the first month of the season while RP Jake McGee (elbow) recovers from elbow surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Boxberger had a dominant season with 104 K's in 64 2/3 innings, a 2.37 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 2014. He will retain value even if he relinquishes the closer role when McGee returns.

Rays | Jake McGee pleased with bullpen

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 09:44:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) was pleased with his third bullpen of the spring Tuesday, March 24, and he said he'll throw five more bullpens before facing hitters. He'll throw another 30-pitch session Friday, March 27. McGee continues to throw at 70 or 80% and just started throwing curve balls again off flat ground Monday, March 23.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that McGee is expected to miss all of April, he's still worth drafting and stashing in mixed leagues for saves down the road. Brad Boxberger is the popular candidate to see most of the ninth-inning duties until McGee returns, and he'll be a late-round speculation for saves.

Rays | Jake McGee set to throw Tuesday

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 13:52:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) is expected to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, March 24.

Fantasy Tip: McGee is expected to miss the first month of the season. In his absence, Brad Boxberger will likely receive the first look at ninth-inning duty. Both relievers warrant late-round attention for those who wait on closers in drafts. It is a volatile position, though, and there is potential for Boxberger to take the job and run with it all season or lose it in the first week of the season. It would be ill-advised to over invest in the Rays' bullpen.

Rays | Jake McGee making strides

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 11:25:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) threw a successful bullpen session Tuesday, March 17, and manager Kevin Cash said McGee felt really good.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that McGee will likely miss at least the first month of the season, he's still worth drafting in the later rounds of mixed leagues for saves speculators. Brad Boxberger is the popular name to see most of the save chances in McGee's absence, but the late-inning situation in Tampa could be wide open. Kevin Jepsen is worth considering in AL-only leagues as you're scrounging for cheap saves avenues.
