Rays reliever Jake McGee undergoes season-ending knee surgery

2 Comments

Rays setup man/closer Jake McGee, who made his way back from elbow surgery to re-establish himself as one of the league’s elite left-handed relievers, will now miss the remainder of the season following knee surgery.

McGee suffered a torn mensicus while blowing a save Tuesday against the Astros, which is a shame because he was as dominant as ever with a 2.57 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 35 innings while holding opponents to a .195 batting average and .538 OPS.

McGee is making $3.55 million this season at age 29 and is under team control via arbitration for 2016 and 2017.
