Jake McGee (RP, TB) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues ANALYSIS: Jake McGee is the new Sean Doolittle, and by that I mean he’s the new “most dominant closer who also doesn’t walk anyone, ever, for real”.  Don’t believe me?  Consider this: since taking over the closer role for the Rays on June 27th, McGee has pitched 17 innings, during which […]

Rays reliever Jake McGee reflects on his first-half performance

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- He may not be part of the American League All-Star roster, but Tampa Bay Rays reliever Jake McGee has enjoyed a first half to remember.

Rays' McGee works on off-speed options

Rays LHP Jake McGee is working on an answer to the complaints that he can't be effective throwing only a fastball. Two answers, actually. McGee is throwing a curveball and a changeup this spring, with plans to incorporate both into what now could be an intriguing three-pitch arsenal. "Hitters will have more to think about," McGee said.
