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.

Rockies | Jake McGee earns 13th save

Wed, 18 May 2016 01:03:25 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee earned his 13th save Tuesday, May 17, in a 3-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. It was his fifth save in the past six days.

Fantasy Tip: McGee continues to impress skeptics who cannot believe he is getting the job done partially at Coors Field. Not only that, McGee is on a hot streak at the moment with five saves in the last week. He should be owned in all formats.

Rockies | Jake McGee notches 11th save

Sun, 15 May 2016 06:14:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee allowed one hit and struck out one batter during a scoreless ninth inning to record his 11th save of the season during the Rockies' 7-4 win over the New York Mets Saturday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: It is tough to complain about McGee's start, even with his 4.30 ERA. He was a late-round grab in most drafts and is tied for fourth in the league in saves. Still, the volatile home park, his lack of strikeouts (5.5 K/9) and a potential relocation to another team where he may be a set-up man are all reasons to try and flip McGee while his value is high.

Rockies | Jake McGee earns 10th save

Sat, 14 May 2016 07:04:00 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the New York Mets Friday, May 13, to pick up his 10th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: McGee has picked up a save in six of his last seven appearances and has allowed only one run in his last eight outings. McGee does have a high ERA but should still be a decent fantasy option since he is closing for the Rockies.

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.
