  • Giants' Jake McGee: Placed on injured list

    McGee was placed on the 15-day injured list with lower-back tightness Wednesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    McGee has struggled since the start of May, as he allowed 10 runs (nine earned) while striking out three in 3.2 innings over his last four appearances. McGee hadn't picked up a save since April 20, but the southpaw's placement on the IL should lead to more ninth-inning opportunities for Camilo Doval.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Shaky in non-save situation

    McGee allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out two in one inning during Monday's win over the Rockies.

    McGee was fortunate to enter the game with a six-run cushion, as he was ineffective in his inning of work. The southpaw's last save came nearly three weeks ago -- April 20 versus the Mets. Since then, he's surrendered 10 runs (nine earned) in 4.2 innings. His struggles lately have bloated his ratios to a 9.64 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 9.1 innings overall. Camilo Doval seems likely to continue getting most of the save opportunities.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Blows save, earns win

    McGee (1-1) allowed one run on one hit in one inning, taking a blown save but earning the win Monday versus the Brewers.

    McGee allowed the game-tying solo home run to Willy Adames in the eighth inning. He then ended up in line for the win after Luis Gonzalez restored the Giants' lead with a two-run blast in the ninth. This was McGee's first homer surrendered this season, and he's allowed only two runs on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 5.2 innings. The veteran southpaw has added two saves and one hold as he continues to see high-leverage work as part of the Giants' closer committee. Camilo Doval pitched a perfect ninth inning to lock down his fourth save of the season.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Notches second save

    McGee earned a save against the Mets on Wednesday, walking one and striking out one over a scoreless inning.

    McGee entered in the ninth inning with the Giants staked to a three-run lead and inauspiciously walked the first batter he faced. However, he recovered from there, retiring the next three hitters to close out the contest. This was his second save in the past five days after Camilo Doval racked up a pair of saves last week. For the time being, it looks like both relievers will be given opportunities to close.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Picks up first save of season

    McGee earned the save Saturday against the Guardians after tossing a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out one.

    McGee pitched in the ninth inning for the first time this season and while he got the job done, it wasn't easy. Needing to protect a two-run lead, McGee gave up a single to Josh Naylor and walked Owen Miller before finding himself with runners on the corners and just one out. However, he struck out Oscar Mercado and retired Myles Straw on a groundout to record his first save of the campaign. While McGee was originally expected to be the leading alternative for saves, a live-armed Camilo Doval, who was likely unavailable Saturday after being used heavily this week, seems to be ahead of the veteran McGee in the pecking order in the early going.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Handed loss Saturday

    McGee (0-1) allowed a run on two hits in two-thirds of an innings, taking the loss Saturday versus the Marlins.

    McGee entered the game in the seventh inning of a low-scoring game. He allowed a go-ahead RBI single to Jesus Sanchez, and McGee didn't finish the inning, with Camilo Doval escaping trouble instead. Through two appearances, McGee has logged a hold and a loss -- he's yet to pitch in the ninth inning despite being designated as the head of the Giants' closer committee. Manager Gabe Kapler is likely to continue mixing and matching relievers to specific matchups rather than utilizing defined roles, so McGee is more of a late-inning option than a true closer.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Tabbed as head of committee

    McGee will enter the year as the Giants' closer, according to manager Gabe Kapler in an interview on KNBR. "Right now, if we were starting on Opening Day, Jake McGee would be our closer," Kapler said on the Tolbert & Copes Show last Friday.

    Kapler went on to say that the Giants don't need to identify firm bullpen roles, mentioning Tyler Rogers and Camilo Doval as other candidates for saves this season. It sounds like this will be a committee, with McGee leading the way in projected opportunities, although the situation is obviously fluid.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Activated by Giants

    McGee (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

    Manager Gabe Kapler has been optimistic that McGee would be back in action for the final series of the regular season, and indeed McGee will rejoin the Giants' bullpen Saturday. Camilo Doval has seen ninth-inning work recently, but McGee will likely reclaim at least a partial share of the closer duties.
