Giants add RP Jake McGee on two-year deal

On today’s Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick talks about the San Francisco Giants signing left-handed reliever Jake McGee to a two-year, $7M contract. The deal has not been announced by the club, but has been reported by multiple reputable sources. McGee was cut loose by the Rockies prior to the start of the 2020 season, but quickly signed on with the Dodgers, where he went on to have a huge rebound season for the eventual World Series champions. McGee’s fastball regained its old dominant form, and he threw the pitch a whopping 97% of the time, the most frequently any pitcher threw any pitch in 2020. Third on that list was Matt Wisler with his slider, and the Giants signed Wisler to a one-year deal earlier this offseason. With the addition of McGee, the Giants continue to build quality depth throughout their 40-man and major league roster.
