Jake McGee

Jake McGee has been quite an inconsistent relief pitcher in his career. One year he’d have a good season, the next year he wouldn’t and it would continue into a pattern where a good season would follow a bad season every other year.

Last season was a good year. After getting released by the Rockies prior to the start of the 2020 season, he signed with the Dodgers where he posted a 2.66 ERA over 24 games with 33 strikeouts compared to 14 hits given up for an opponent average of .187 while allowing only two free passes and the same amount of home runs across 20.1 innings pitched.

He really benefited from his release as not only did he have a good season but also got a World Series ring.

McGee may be overlooked by some because of his tenure with the Rockies which is where pitchers careers go to waste due to the fact that they play half their games at the high altitude of Coors Field.

In four years with the Rockies, he went 4-11 and recorded a 4.78 ERA over 225 games with more hits given up (209) than strikeouts (178). He also gave up more home runs in four years with Colorado (34) than in six years with Tampa Bay (21).

In McGee’s career, he currently holds a 3.59 ERA with 530 strikeouts over 415 hits across 475.2 inning pitched. He also has 132 career holds and 45 saves.

The Blue Jays could bring in McGee as a left-handed option in their bullpen, which they are in need of.
