Rockies | Jake McGee shelled, blows save

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 18:17:18 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee blew his first save of the season, allowing five runs on five hits and a walk while recording just two outs against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: McGee converted his first four save chances, and every pitcher has a rough outing in Coors Field from time to time. His status as the closer shouldn?t be impacted by one bad performance.

Rockies | Jake McGee to close for Colorado

Sat, 02 Apr 2016 19:24:34 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee will open the season as the team's closer, manager Walt Weiss said Saturday, April 2.

Fantasy Tip: Colorado isn't an ideal pitching environment, but McGee's power stuff should play well in any park. Pick him up if he happens to be available in your league. He could end up finishing the year as a quality No. 2 fantasy closer because of his strikeout potential.

Rockies | Colorado closing candidates

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 11:30:10 -0700

With Colorado Rockies RP Jason Motte (shoulder) likely to start the year on the disabled list, RPs Jake McGee and Chad Qualls could be in play to handle the ninth inning, and RP Miguel Castro is another candidate.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Walt Weiss has been coy about naming a specific closer heading into the season, although most folks automatically assumed it would mainly be McGee, who Colorado traded for in the offseason. That's likely to be the case, but the Rockies could mix and match based on matchups. McGee is the closer to own in fantasy leagues, but because of the uncertainty he's more of an RP3.

Rockies | Closer-by-committee approach for Rockies?

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 15:10:07 -0800

Colorado Rockies RPs Jake McGee, Jason Motte, Chad Qualls and Adam Ottavino (elbow) are all candidates to pitch in the ninth inning, according to bullpen coach Darren Holmes. Holmes noted the bullpen will focus on retiring hitters at critical times and not predetermined roles.

Fantasy Tip: Bullpen by committees are a hassle for fantasy owners, and given the home venue in this discussion, the fantasy value is low for all four arms in the majority of leagues. However, it is also Friday, Feb. 5, so a lot can change before the season starts, and a full-time closer could emerge at some point. For the time being, though, proceed with caution when approaching this bullpen. Ottavino has the lowest value because he'll be for the majority of the first half of the season following Tommy John surgery last year.

Rockies | Jake McGee could be flipped

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 13:00:23 -0800

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee will make $4.8 million in 2016 with one year of arbitration left before he's eligible for free agency, so the Rockies could elect to trade him this summer or next offseason.

Fantasy Tip: McGee's fantasy value is boosted big time, as he's now expected to close for Colorado. Despite pitching in one of the best hitting environments now in Coors Field and for a team not expected to contend, McGee has the tools to become a top-15 fantasy closer in 2016.

Rockies | Colorado trades for closer

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 12:45:54 -0800

The Colorado Rockies traded OF Corey Dickerson to the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, Jan. 28, in exchange for RP Jake McGee and unknown minor leaguers.

Fantasy Tip: McGee has always had closer stuff, and now he should be expected to serve as the Rockies No. 1 fireman in the ninth inning. Before this, the Rockies were expected to use Jason Motte and/or Chad Qualls, so McGee is certainly an upgrade. Don't worry so much about the hitter's paradise of Coors Field. McGee has the tools to succeed in this role and can be a top-15 fantasy closer now.

Rays | Jake McGee inks one-year pact

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 11:39:50 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee avoided arbitration by signing a one-year, $4.8 million deal Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: McGee will have to stave off Brad Boxberger for the closer role and prove he can remain healthy for a full season, but he's a third reliever with some upside.

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 08:40:00 -0800

Rays | Brad Boxberger, Jake McGee drawing interest

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 11:09:44 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays RPs Brad Boxberger and Jake McGee are drawing interest from the Los Angeles Dodgers, Washington Nationals and Arizona Diamondbacks, among other teams.

Fantasy Tip: The Detroit Tigers and Houston Astros are also believed to be interested. Boxberger surprisingly led the American League with 41 saves this year. He's expected to remain as their closer if he isn't traded, but a trade could negatively affect both relievers' fantasy value depending on where they land. Stay tuned.

Rays | Jake McGee, Brad Boxberger on trade block

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 14:40:26 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays RPs Jake McGee and Brad Boxberger are receiving plenty of trade interest from other teams, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Both relievers have had peaks and valleys over the past two seasons, including injuries. At this point, they're only viable fantasy options in the majority of formats if receiving ninth-inning duty, so until their roles are solidified with Tampa Bay or another team, view them as cavernous mixed and only-league options.
