Gee will throw his first major league pitch since undergoing surgery at last year’s All-Star break. He had many of his fears quelled because he was able to throw last September. “I didn’t want to spend the off-season wondering if I could throw again,” Gee said. “It took a lot off my mind.” The feeling retur

He’s attentive to your questions, and thoughtful and respectful with his answers. Harvey has a big time future, but doesn’t come across as a big timer. The tip-off is he carries his...
