29-year old lefty Jake McGee is taking advantage of his first shot as a full time closer with the Colorado Rockies. McGee has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-1 with 13 saves, a 3.78 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. He has given up 18 hits and 5 walks while whiffing 11 batters in his first 16 2/3 innings for the Rockies. In his last 7 games, McGee is 0-0 with 6 saves, a 1.29 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. The only sore spot so far for McGee is that he hasn’t pitched near as well at Coors Field (which is understandable). He has pitched in 9 games at home so far this year and he is 0-1 with 6 saves, a 5.19 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. McGee will likely smash his prior career high of 19 saves in a season!
