Profile: With a mid-90s fastball that he relied on almost exclusively, Jake McGee seemed like a rare pitcher who might be able to overcome the challenges of Coors Field.  Instead, McGee dealt with recurrent knee issues that perhaps led to his declining fastball velocity and freefalling strikeout rate.  After striking out more than 11 batters per nine in three of his four previous seasons, McGee struck out just 7.5 batters per nine last season.  Those struggles resulted in a 4.73 ERA and cost McGee the closer job.  Entering 2017, Adam Ottavino is the presumed favorite for the job.  Because McGee’s declining performance might well have been injury-related, he is a strong bounce back candidate, and Ottavino’s own checkered injury history means that McGee could have a shot at regaining the ninth-inning duties.  Still, Ottavino has been tremendously effective when he’s been healthy enough to pitch, so McGee will need several breaks before he has any fantasy value, and even if those breaks come, there is always the concern that is Coors Field.  (Scott Spratt)

The Quick Opinion: Jake McGee saw his fastball velocity decline and his strikeout rate plummet in his first season in Colorado in 2016.  Perhaps a knee injury led to those struggles, but even if he bounces back, he’ll start the 2017 season behind Adam Ottavino in the Rockies’ bullpen.
