    • Rockies' Jake McGee: Returns to Colorado
      By RotoWire Staff

      McGee will remain with the Rockies after signing a three-year deal Wednesday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Pending a physical, McGee will be back in the Colorado bullpen for the third straight year, and could potentially be the club's closer for the 2018 season. That obviously depends on whether the Rockies are able to sign other relievers before the start of next season, but McGee is a solid candidate to take over that role following a good season in 2017. During this past year, he posted a 3.61 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over 57.1 innings, while accumulating three saves and 20 holds. His 58:16 K:BB was more in line with his remarkable final two seasons in Tampa Bay than his rough debut with the Rockies in 2016, and the left-hander should be able to put together another quality year in whichever role he winds up being deployed in.

    • Rockies' Jake McGee: Bounces back in 2017
      By RotoWire Staff

      McGee finished the regular season with a 3.61 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 9.1 K/9 in 57.1 innings pitched. After a disastrous debut in Colorado, the southpaw bounced back with a solid season. It's certainly not the elite stat line he produced during his time with Tampa Bay, but it was enough to grab many of the high-leverage innings for the Rockies. He'll be blocked for saves if Greg Holland comes back on his player option, but McGee is valuable in leagues that count holds after he put up 20 holds, his highest mark in the category since 2013.

    • Rockies' Jake McGee: Earns save Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      McGee earned his third save of the season in Sunday's victory over the Braves. Thomas Harding of MLB.com reported that Greg Holland, Colorado's usual closer, wouldn't be used in Sunday's game so that he could throw a bullpen session. As a result, McGee picked up a save for the second consecutive day. Holland has struggled recently, as he's allowed eight runs over his last four appearances (2.2 innings). However, the team has yet to remove Holland from his duties as closer, so it's unlikely that McGee will consistently see save opportunities moving forward. He's still worth a speculative fantasy pickup, though, for the possibility the Rockies make a change.

    • Rockies' Jake McGee: Earns rare save Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      McGee retired two hitters to earn his second save Saturday against the Braves. McGee came on in the ninth inning after the Braves had scored two runs to pull within a single run of the Rockies, but he was able to close out the contest on just three pitches. This was a rare save opportunity for a reliever who's collected 16 holds on the year.

    • Rockies' Jake McGee: Back in action Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      McGee (back) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. The southpaw got back to throwing late last week, and it seems like everything is back in working order even with the increase in activity. McGee should slot back into a setup role in the Rockies bullpen now that he's healthy again. Shane Carle was sent back to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
