McGee was exceptional during his one inning of work. He entered the game with a three-run lead, and struck out the side. McGee did not allow a hit or a walk during the appearance. His ERA now sits at 1.40.

Joe Maddon shows preference for Jake McGee
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rays manager Joe Maddon may not have used Jake McGee, who had recorded each of the team's previous five save opportunities, in a save situation Sunday at Minnesota, but he still showed his preference for the left-hander by having him pitch the eighth inning of a two-run game.

As I mentioned in the Fantasy Baseball Today blog (after Al Melchior pointed it out to me on Monday's show), the heart of the Twins lineup was up in the eighth. From Maddon's perspective, it was the higher-leverage situation.

Now, that doesn't mean Maddon was able to rest easy in the ninth. Grant Balfour put two runners on, forcing him to make a pitching change. But it shows he knows McGee is his best reliever. He just needs to be convinced the ninth inning is the best time to use his best reliever.

Sabermetricians have long argued for managers to use their bullpens this way, and Maddon has always been the forward-thinking type. Whether or not it lasts depends on his blood pressure. Sunday's ninth inning no doubt raised it.

My take is it doesn't really matter. Given McGee's usage over the last couple weeks, Maddon typically considers the ninth inning to be the highest-leverage situation. With his perpherals, McGee will get enough save chances to serve as a No. 2 reliever in mixed leagues.

Jake McGee earns eighth save Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Jake McGee picked up his eighth save Saturday, recording the final two outs of his team's 5-1 win over the Twins.

McGee was brought on up four with two guys on base and one run already home in the ninth inning. He was able to record a flyout before striking out the final batter of the night. McGee owns a 1.47 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 54:9 K:BB ratio in 43 innings.

Time to call Jake McGee the closer?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Judging by his 47 percent ownership rate, which is higher than Chad Qualls' and Hector Rondon's but lower than LaTroy Hawkins' and Santiago Casilla's, we're all at about the same place with Jake McGee. We so desperately want him to close for the Rays and think he's on the verge of it, but we can't fully commit until manager Joe Maddon does.

The latest indicator: He recorded a save with a perfect ninth inning Sunday against the Blue Jays, the last day before the All-Star break, in which he faced two right-handed hitters, including Jose Bautista. He has now gotten each of the Rays' last four save opportunities.

He had a stretch in late June when he looked like he had locked up the role as well only to have Maddon turn to Joel Peralta, Grant Balfour and Brad Boxberger for consecutive save opportunities. This is his longest interrupted streak so far, though, and he's certainly been the most reliable of that group.

Given that the Rays won't be buyers at the trade deadline, McGee's ascension to the closer role appears inevitable. And knowing how high would rank among closers with his 1.52 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 10.9 strikeouts per nine innings, you'll want to buy into him before it becomes official.
