McGee, Rockies agree to a three-year deal

MLB free agent rumors Rockies follow Bryan Shaw deal by adding Jake Mc Gee to bullpen too

While rumors still swirl around the Rockies and their pursuit of closers Wade Davis, Brandon Kintzler, Alex Colome and even the potential return of Greg Holland, the pair dig deep into the Rockies' staff and find a number of intriguing possibilities for a young rotation and a veteran bullpen.

Holland, 32, has looked to cash in on his 2017 season in which he led the NL with 41 saves.

Pitching 57.1 innings, he posted a 3.61 ERA and recorded three saves. When he joined the BSN Rockies Podcast last May, he talked to us about his early career, conversion to the bullpen, his relationship with Black, how his health impacted a rough 2016 campaign and while these types of things can always be a bit ambiguous, McGee seemed like a guy who was very happy where he is.

The Colorado Rockies have struck a deal with free agent reliever Bryan Shaw, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

McGee's deal is a three-year deal worth around $27 million which carries a fourt-year option.

He turned in his best season three years ago, when he went 5-2 with a 1.89 ERA and 19 saves in 73 appearances for Tampa Bay.

The 31-year old lefty is 23-16 with a 3.15 ERA and 44 saves over his eight year Major League Baseball career. The 31-year old quickly became a security blanket for Bud Black and with the team desperately needing not only late-inning relievers but also lefties, Jake was a flawless fit. That the Rockies are still trying to sign Holland after re-signing McGee and adding Shaw is a clear sign towards their thoughts on 2018.

UPDATE: Others are disputing Heyman's report and insist the two sides are just talking.
