Jake McGee was roughed up for four earned runs in relief and took the loss Friday against the Rangers.
The Dodgers tied the game up 2-2 in the top of the seventh, only to see the Rangers score four runs in the bottom of the frame. McGee gave up four hits to the five batters he faced before he was relieved, and each of those hitters came around to score. McGee had been a solid reliever thus far, pitching to a 0.79 ERA in 11.1 innings prior to Friday's outing.
The Dodgers signed LHP Jake McGee to a one-year deal.
The Dodgers continue adding to their ridiculous depth. McGee was released by the Rockies last week but LA wants to see if a change in scenery helps turn things around.
The Rockies released pitchers Jake McGee and Bryan Shaw.
Both relievers have struggled mightily since joining the Rockies. McGee put up a 4.35 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP in 2019. He'll look to sign on somewhere else as bullpen depth.
Jake McGee was in for the eighth inning on Friday during the Rockies 11-5 victory over the Braves on Friday. He relinquished two walks and struck out one.
McGee walked Freddie Freeman and Tyler Flowers through his one inning appearance. Freeman acquired 2nd base through a defensive indifference play and eventually made it to third, but didn't get across the plate. He sat down the last batter with three straight fastballs ranging from 94-96 MPH.
Jake McGee was on the mound for 1/3 of an inning an allowed two hits, three earned runs, one wal, while striking out one as the Rockies lost to the Cardinals 6-3.
McGee didn't last long in this one and if the Rockies were in the lead it probably would of stung more, but they were already behind and the loss was charged to Kyle Freeland. Though he's moving along at strikeout per inning, his ratios are brutal, sitting at a 6.81 ERA and 1.54 WHIP. Find middle relief help elsewhere.
