KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Dillon Gee stayed positive despite his tough spring for the New York Mets.
The type of outing he had Monday against the Atlanta Braves should make him feel even better.
Gee pitched six scoreless innings and struck out seven as the Mets topped the Braves 7-4. Gee had allowed 11 earned runs in his previous two starts and missed the second half of last season with a blood clot in his right shoulder.
"I've never gotten caught up in spring training," Gee said. "I am just trying to be aggressive. To do well in a big lineup like I did today makes me feel good."
Even though Gee allowed five earned runs in four innings in his last outing against the Houston Astros, Mets manager Terry Collins felt the right-hander turned a corner during that rocky outing.
"He got hit in that last inning, but he finished strong," Collins said. "He came back to the dugout after it was over and said, I'm back.' He showed that today."

According to Jorge Castillo of The Star Ledger, Jenrry Mejia, who has not pitched since March 11 due to what the Mets first labeled forearm tendinitis, has been shutdown for at least six weeks due to inflammation in his elbow.
“I feel a little pain, not much,” Mejia said in Spanish. “But sometimes a little pain turns into a lot so you don’t want to force anything. It’s...
New York Mets right-hander Shaun Marcum could miss the start of the regular season because of a neck injury.
Marcum, who signed a $4 million, one-year contract during the offseason, experienced discomfort during a bullpen session Monday. He was being examined in Port St. Lucie on Tuesday and was all but certain to miss his final exhibition start, slated for Thursday.
After he played in a minor league game today, the Mets softened their position on whether David Wright could be ready for Opening Day.
When Wright was pulled from the World Baseball Classic last week, manager Terry Collins was thinking a month. Not any longer.
“I would not be surprised if David Wright is there Opening Day,’’ Collins told reporters today. “There will be a...
Mets manager Terry Collins says Shaun Marcum is coming to New York to have his pitching shoulder and neck examined by team doctors and that Aaron Laffey would likely make a spot start in place of the right-hander Sunday.
Collins says that Marcum will see the team's doctors Thursday.
Marcum was unable to pitch a simulated game Tuesday at the Mets' spring training complex...
