McGee marks return, limited to 20 pitches

Pitcher Jake McGee pitched in a Gulf Coast League game today, his first action since Tommy John surgery last summer while he was with the Biscuits.

McGee faced three batters without recording an out. He left the game because he hit his 20-pitch limit, he said.

"I just wasn't feeling right with my mechanics," McGee said. "My body and my arm felt good."

The left-hander said he's supposed to pitch two innings in a start Tuesday and three innings in a start July 6. After that, he'll throw out of the bullpen three times before moving up to high-Class A Charlotte.
