Rays RP Jake McGee nails down save No. 3 on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/13/15) Rays reliever Jake McGee worked out of trouble to record his third save of the year in Saturday's 5-4 victory over the White Sox. McGee allowed the potential tying and go-ahead runs to reach base with one out, but was able to retire the next two batters to close out the game.
The left-hander posted his eight-straight scoreless outing, as he lowered his ERA to 2.45. He's 3-for-4 in save chances this season.

Boroski: Rays RP Jake McGee's comfort level on the rise
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/12/15) After missing roughly the first six weeks of the season coming off elbow surgery, the Rays were careful to ease reliever Jake McGee back into high-leverage situations. However, their concerns seem to be gone after McGee locked down his first save Wednesday against the Angels.
“As far as the life on his fastball, everything is back to where it was,” bullpen coach Stan Boroski said, per The Tampa Tribune. “The few curveballs he’s thrown are better than they were pre-injury. Everything’s come together nice.”
Boroski did mention that McGee's velocity does appear to be a little off on his first few pitches. He starts throwing his fastball in the low-to-mid-90s before dialing it up to the high 90s as the inning progresses.
“From first pitch to last pitch, the trend has been the velocity increases as the outing goes along,” Boroski said. “What’s causing that, I’m not sure because last year it was 97 right off the bat. I don’t know if he’s tentative or not. But as far as the life (on his pitches) goes, it’s looking more and more comfortable.”
Rays RP Jake McGee strikes out two, earns first save of the year
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/10/15) Rays relief pitcher Jake McGee needed just 13 pitches to close out his team's 4-2 win over the Angels on Wednesday.
McGee, who blew a save earlier this season, struck out two batters in what was a dominant performance which earned him his first save of the year.
McGee has a 3.00 ERA with 14 strikeouts in nine innings this season.
Rays' Jake McGee allows first runs of season in blown save
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Rays reliever Jake McGee allowed his first runs of the season in Tuesday's loss to Seattle.
McGee entered in the eighth inning, trying to protect a one-run lead. He allowed the first three runners to reach base, then served up a grand slam to Kyle Seager.
"I was just trying to get ahead right there," McGee said, per MLB.com. "Especially with no outs and the bases loaded. I don't want to fall behind him. You know, he got a decent pitch. It leaked back over the plate, and he hit it out."
McGee suffered his first blown save of the year, allowing four runs, three earned, on three hits in 1/3 of an inning.

Ryan hurts calf in Yankees' 3-0 loss to Rays
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) In the first season following Derek Jeter's retirement, the Yankees have concerns about shortstop less than a week before opening day.
|2014 summary: Jake McGee emerged quickly as an option to close for the Rays once Grant Balfour was removed from the role in early June, and within a month, he had claimed the job all for himself. The lefty was solid in the role, despite blowing four saves in 23 attempts. From the time he notched his first save on June 15, McGee compiled a 2.16 ERA with 56 strikeouts and nine walks in 41 2/3 innings.|
Playing time status: McGee had surgery to remove a loose body in his elbow in December, and he will need to begin the season on the disabled list. He is aiming to return in late April or early May and is expected to take up closing duties at that point.
2015 outlook: The biggest threat to McGee's Fantasy value is the performance of the other relievers in the Rays' bullpen. McGee has proven that he is up to the task of closing out games, but while he is out to begin the season, Kevin Jepsen and Brad Boxberger head up a strong contingent of relievers who could fill in more than ably. McGee could wind up performing like a top 10 reliever, but between the lost time and the potential competition he could face, he is a more appropriate target as a No. 2 reliever in standard mixed leagues.
