  • Giants' Jake McGee: Takes loss Wednesday

    McGee (1-2) was charged with the loss Wednesday versus Atlanta. He allowed three runs on three hits while recording only one out.

    With Camilo Doval unavailable after having pitched four of the five previous days, McGee was given a save opportunity. It got off to a bad start when Dansby Swanson took McGee deep for a solo shot, and Atlanta added a pair of singles after that. Tyler Rogers then allowed an inherited runner to score on an Adam Duvall single, with the decisive run on McGee's line. The veteran southpaw saw his 7.2-inning scoreless streak end in brutal fashion, and he now has a 4.96 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 10:5 K:BB with three saves, three blown saves and four holds through 18.1 innings overall.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Perfect inning for save

    McGee pitched a perfect inning to earn the save in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Dodgers.

    McGee hadn't logged a save or a hold since April 20, picking up two blown saves and a win in that span. He struggled before going on the injured list with lower-back tightness, but he's pitched six scoreless innings since his return May 31. The 35-year-old still has a 6.06 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 9:5 K:BB in 16.1 innings overall, but he's trending in the right direction after picking up his third save of the season. He got the save chance Sunday since Camilo Doval had pitched three of the four previous days, but McGee should still be considered a high-leverage option.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Extends scoreless streak

    McGee walked one in a scoreless inning during Friday's 7-2 win over the Dodgers.

    Since returning from a stint on the injured list with lower-back tightness, McGee has logged five scoreless innings, giving up just a hit and a walk with three strikeouts. That's a massive improvement given where his game was early in the season -- he's still got a 6.46 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 9:5 K:BB across 15.1 innings overall. He hasn't logged a save since April 20, with Camilo Doval the current favorite for closing duties among Giants relievers, though manager Gabe Kapler is no stranger to playing matchups rather than using defined roles.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Returns from injured list

    McGee (back) was activated off the injured list as expected Friday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

    McGee wound up missing just over the minimum 15 days with lower-back tightness. He'd pitched his way out of his share of the closing role prior to the injury, posting a 9.58 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in 10.1 innings of work while striking out just 11.8 percent of opposing batters, but he's good to go after striking out seven of the 10 batters he faced across a trio of rehab appearances. Mauricio Llovera was optioned to clear space on the active roster.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Should be back Friday

    The Giants are expected to activate McGee (back) from the 15-day injured list Friday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Though McGee gave up a run in the most recent of his three minor-league rehab outings with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, the Giants have been encouraged with how his velocity has ticked up as the minor-league assignment has progressed. McGee will likely throw in front of the Giants' coaching and training staff Thursday, and if he checks out fine, he should settle back into a setup role for the big club this weekend.

  • Giants' Jake McGee: Starts up rehab assignment

    McGee (back) made a rehab appearance for Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday, striking out the side in a perfect 13-pitch inning.

    McGee isn't eligible to return from the 15-day injured list until May 26, so he could make one or two more rehab appearances over the next week before being activated. Though he looked sharp Wednesday in his first appearance in more than a week, McGee will likely have to settle for a setup role upon his return to the Giants after a string of poor outings prior to landing on the IL. Meanwhile, Camilo Doval has seemingly gained more job security as the Giants' closer after posting a 0.61 ERA while converting all seven of his save chances in 14 appearances since getting lit up for three earned runs and blowing a save Opening Day.

  • 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.
