      Rockies' Jake McGee: Traded to Rockies

      McGee was traded to the Rockies on Thursday in exchange for Corey Dickerson, the New York Post's Joel Sherman reports. This is bittersweet, as McGee now has an easier path to saves, but he will have to pitch half his games in Colorado. That said, investing in an elite closer in Colorado is more palatable than using a Rockies starting pitcher, and McGee has the stuff to succeed anywhere. Jason Motte and Chad Qualls were the Rockies' top two options for the ninth inning prior to this deal, but McGee should now be considered the favorite to open the year as the closer, even given his left-handedness. McGee's 32.7% K-rate was 12th best among relievers with 30-plus innings last season, and only five of the names ahead of him are locked into closer jobs this season. He is not a top-10 option at the position, just given team context, but he can be viewed as a solid mid-tier closer in mixed leagues.

      Rays' Jake McGee: Agrees to $4.8 million deal with Rays

      McGee agreed to a one-year, $4.8 million deal with the Rays on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. McGee missed the early part of last season to recover from arthroscopic elbow surgery, allowing Brad Boxberger to to lock down the closing role in Tampa Bay. After returning to the mound, McGee suffered a knee injury that shelved him for over a month late in the season. Boxberger will likely start the year as the team's closer, but McGee will be a viable candidate to take over if Boxberger fails to repeat his 2015 form.

      Rays RP Jake McGee activated from the disabled list on Saturday

      Rays reliever Jake McGee (knee) was activated from the 15-day DL prior to Saturday's game. As expected, the Rays activated McGee, but the lefty did not end up appearing in Saturday's game, as a poor outing from Chris Archer took the bullpen off the hook for any high-leverage work. Handed a 6-to-8 week timetable after suffering the knee injury, McGee ended up beating the front end of that estimate. He's turned in a 2.57 ERA and 0.91 WHIP with six saves, 17 holds and four blown saves in 36 appearances so far this season.

      Rays RP Jake McGee targeting return this week

      The Sunday bullpen session for Rays left-handed reliever Jake McGee (knee) went well and he is optimistic he could return later this week, per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Considering how effective McGee is and that he's under team control for two more years, the Rays aren't likely to risk his health for 2016 on the last two weeks of a season in which they are out of contention. He should come back soon, but don't expect him to be used often.
