News: McGee earned his 12th save of the season Monday against the Brewers as he recorded two strikeouts in one perfect inning. Impact: McGee continues to pitch well and is now accumulating saves quickly with Tampa Bay's recent run of success.

News: McGee notched his eighth save Saturday night, retiring both batters he faced to preserve a 5-1 lead against the Twins. Impact: Though there has still been no official announcement, it seems safe to say that manager Joe Maddon is becoming more and more comfortable with McGee as his go-to guy in save situations. Dating back to June 27, the hard-throwing lefty has successfully converted all seven of his save chances while posting a 1.80 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and impeccable 16:0 K:BB ratio across 10 innings. McGee has picked up the last five saves out of the Rays' bullpen and should receive plenty of opportunities going forward.(RotoWire, )
