Rays' Brad Boxberger closes out Braves with save No. 11
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) After using Jake McGee in the eighth inning, Rays manager opted to roll with Brad Boxberger in the ninth inning for his 11th save of the season Tuesday night in Atlanta.
Boxberger struck out one and needed only 15 pitches (11 strikes) to retire the side in order and secure a 5-3 victory. He has converted all 11 of his save chances, with a 1.20 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP over 15 innings pitched this season.
Brad Boxberger wants to stay Rays' closer despite Jake McGee's return
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/18/15) Reliever Jake McGee's stint on the disabled list for the season's first six weeks allowed Brad Boxberger to step in and assume the Rays' closer role, which he's excelled in with a 10-for-10 save record thus far, reports the Tampa Tribune.|
“Boxer will be closing for a long time,” Rays reliever Kevin Jepsen said. “It fits him. That’s what he is. He’s a closer.”
With McGee's recent return from the DL, Boxberger said he wants to remain as the team's fireman.
“Absolutely,” Boxberger said. “I’m comfortable there right now. I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job there in that role, but with McGee coming back and everything he’s done, it will be interesting to see what they’re going to do.”
McGee led the Rays last year with 19 saves.
Rays pitcher Jake McGee strikes out two in scoreless inning
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Rays pitcher Jake McGee was able to make his return to the mound on Sunday in Tampa Bay's 11-3 win over the Twins.
McGee worked one scoreless inning with two strikeouts, something manager Kevin Cash hopes will continue, according to MLB.com.
"That was exciting," Cash said. "Ideally, that's the kind of game we'd like to get him in in his first appearance back. So it worked out well."
McGee threw 14 pitches, nine for strikes, against the three hitters he faced.
"I figured I wanted to mix in a few of them," McGee said. "My location was pretty good today so even if I missed with a curveball I could come back with a fastball at the right location. My biggest thing is [to] get ahead of guys and throw strikes, and good things will happen more than likely."
Cash on Mcgee's return: I don't see 'anybody assuming any role'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/15/15) The Rays activated pitcher Jake McGee (elbow) from the disabled list on Friday and optioned Matt Andriese to Triple-A Durham, per the team's official website. McGee is coming off elbow surgery. He collected 19 saves and registered a 1.89 ERA last season for the Rays.
When asked about McGee's role following Thursday's game against the Yankees, manager Kevin Cash gave a noncommittal response, per the Tampa Bay Times.
"I don't anticipate anybody assuming any role," Cash said.
Brad Boxberger has converted all 10 of his save chances while McGee was sidelined. Cash will monitor McGee's outings before determining who pitches at the back of the bullpen moving forward.
Report: Rays' Jake McGee to return Friday, Matt Andriese to minors
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Rays pitcher Jake McGee will be activated from the disabled list on Friday, according to a report by TBO.com.
McGee has been on a minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A after an elbow injury landed him on the disabled list. McGee allowed two hits and two walks in four innings at Durham.
To make room for McGee on the roster, the Rays will option pitcher Matt Andriese to Triple-A. Andriese is 0-1 with two saves and 4.79 ERA this season.

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.
