Rays manager Joe Maddon said he will likely go with a closer by committee next season, the Tampa Tribune reports. "I kind of like the closer-less bullpen, where you really can match up," Maddon said. "We've done it where the eighth innings requires the skill set and the ninth may require this skill set, and you have several guys who don't mind the pressure of those last three outs. For me, it looks like it would be best off to stay the way we are."
McGee picked up his 18th save of the season, giving up two walks, a hit, and a run while striking out one in the ninth inning Saturday against the White Sox.
McGee blew the save against the Yankees on Thursday, allowing three runs and two hits while retiring just one batter.
McGee picked up his 16th save of the season Friday night, as he struck out the side in order to finish off a 3-0 win over the Orioles.
