Rockies | Jake McGee knocked around again

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 17:28:54 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee recorded just one out against the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday, July 10, allowing two runs on one hit and a walk, and he has allowed five runs in 3 1/3 innings since returning from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't hurt to stash McGee in deeper leagues if you have the roster space, but the way he is pitching, he may never reclaim the closer's role.

Rockies | Jake McGee blows lead

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 22:38:53 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee allowed two runs on two hits in 2/3 of an inning against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, July 8. It was McGee's fourth blown save and third loss of the season.

Fantasy Tip: McGee entered with two on and up 2-0. Two batters later, the Phils were ahead 4-2 after pinch-hitter Tommy Joseph cracked a three-run blast. McGee, who began the season as the closer, was activated from the DL last week and has surrendered four runs -- three earned -- in three innings since returning. He'll need to pick it up if he wants to retake the job from Carlos Estevez. Keep McGee stashed in NL-only leagues. Elsewhere, he's not worth a spot.

Rockies | Carlos Estevez to keep closer job

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 14:27:35 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Carlos Estevez will continue to be the team's closer for now, according to manager Walt Weiss. RP Jake McGee will be used in the seventh and eighth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Estevez has allowed four earned runs in his last four appearances, so it is not known how long he will keep the closer job. Estevez should still be a fantasy option as long as he receives save opportunities. Owners should hold onto McGee because he probably will regain the job if a change is made.

Rockies | Jake McGee activated from DL

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 09:15:24 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee (knee) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, July 2. RP Yohan Flande was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Carlos Estevez had been filling in for McGee in the closer's role with mixed results. Don't drop Estevez yet. He's expected to keep the job with McGee being eased back in in less stressful situations. That doesn't mean McGee won't eventually earn the job back, though, so Colorado's ninth-inning situation could become fluid.

Rockies | Jake McGee could be activated Saturday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 22:47:07 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee (knee) could be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Saturday, July 2, according to manager Walt Weiss. He last pitched on June 10.

Fantasy Tip: McGee was 14-for-17 in save situations prior to getting hurt, and that included a respectable 3.43 ERA before he got lit up in his final pre-DL outing. Carlos Estevez did a solid job initially but has stumbled of late, so expect McGee to move back into the ninth inning. If someone dropped McGee, go ahead and scoop him up.

Rockies | Jake McGee to make rehab outing

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 16:32:42 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee (knee) will make a rehab outing for Class A Modesto Tuesday, June 28, and he'll likely return from the disabled list Saturday, July 2. McGee said his arm "feels fresh" after throwing a 25-pitch side session Monday, June 27. McGee will pitch again for Modesto Thursday, June 30. The Rockies will wait to decide if McGee will return to the closer role. RP Carlos Estevez has filled in with McGee injured and has gone 4-for-6 in save opportunities.

Fantasy Tip: McGee was 14-for-17 in save chances for the Rockies this year, and he blew a save against the Padres when suffered his knee injury. He's probably Colorado's best option, but the Rockies could go with a committee in the ninth when McGee returns. Regardless, McGee should've been stashed in all fantasy leagues while he's been on the DL. Stay tuned.

Rockies | Jake McGee spins bullpen session

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:40:42 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee (knee) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Friday, June 24, and will throw another one Sunday, June 26, before going on a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: McGee is worth stashing in all seasonal leagues because he should return to the closer role once healthy. It wasn't pretty (4.98 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 6.2 K/9), but McGee did grab 15 saves before the injury.

Rockies | Carlos Estevez closes it out

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 19:41:01 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Carlos Estevez pitched a perfect ninth inning against the San Diego Padres to pick up his first save of the season Saturday, June 11, and he is expected to serve as the closer with RP Jake McGee (knee) on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: While he may not keep the job once McGee returns, Estevez is a must-add if you are looking for saves.

Rockies | Jake McGee placed on DL

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 12:31:35 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday, June 11, with left knee inflammation. RP Tyler Anderson was activated off the disabled list in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: McGee was tagged for four runs in two-thirds on an inning en route to suffering his third blown save, then underwent an MRI on Saturday, and the exam yielded less-than-favorable results. Manager Walt Weiss has yet to announce who will close in McGee's absence, but Jason Motte and Carlos Estevez are the two most likely candidates. Motte has closing experience, but Estevez has pitched the eighth inning more often for the Rockies and probably should be considered the slight favorite to pick up saves in the short term. He's worth a speculative short-term add in most leagues.

Rockies | Jake McGee blows third save

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 21:57:51 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee allowed four runs on four hits in 2/3 of an inning in a 7-5 loss to the San Diego Padres on Friday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: All the damage against McGee came with two outs, capped by a three-run blast from Wil Myers. It was his third blown save of the season and first since May 7, but it left his ratios at an unsightly 4.98 ERA and 1.57 WHIP. While that looks bad, nine of the 12 runs McGee has allowed this year came in two outings so he has actually done a good job most of the time. Don't let one bad performance sour you on McGee. He should keep closing out games for the Rockies.
