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.

Rays | Jake McGee makes rehab outing

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 11:26:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow, back) tossed a scoreless inning with high-A Charlotte Tuesday, April 28, allowing no hits and striking out none.

Fantasy Tip: McGee is nearing a return to the Rays' bullpen, and he'll do his best to wrestle the ninth-inning duties away from Brad Boxberger, who is a perfect 5-for-5 in save chances and also has two wins. Both relievers should continue to be owned in all formats once McGee returns, as the situation in the ninth could be fluid as they work him back into action.

Rays | Jake McGee will pitch in minors Tuesday

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 12:16:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow, back) will make his first minor league rehab appearance with Single-A Charlotte Tuesday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: McGee is expected to return to the closer role for the Rays when he rejoins the team. There are no guarantees he'll step right back in immediately or keep the job, though. Brad Boxberger has pitched well in his absence (two wins, five saves, 2.16 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 14.0 K/9), after all. Continue to check back for updates on McGee's recovery and his return timeline.

Rays | Jake McGee has back stiffness

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:34:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow, back) is dealing with some stiffness in his back, but manager Kevin Cash said it shouldn't be more than a few days until he's throwing again.

Fantasy Tip: McGee is expected to be back with the Rays early next month. However, he may not get a chance to jump immediately back into the closer's role with Brad Boxberger handling ninth-inning duties just fine to begin the year. Nevertheless, McGee deserves a roster spot in all fantasy baseball leagues.
