The Mets said in a release Wednesday that Gee could have further surgery to prevent a possible recurrence of the clot in the same location of his arm. Gee has been put on the disabled list and left-hander Josh Edgin will be called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday before the Mets start a three-game series in Atlanta. Gee complained of numb fingers on his right hand Sunday, a day after he pitched. Tests on Monday revealed the shoulder clot. Doctors at New York-Presbyterian Hospital used a catheter to break up the clot. The 26-year-old was scheduled to start New York's first game after the All-Star break against the Braves. He is 6-7 on the season with a 4.10 ERA and has been one of the Mets' most effective pitchers recently, with a 3.34 ERA over the last month. The Mets had already juggled their rotation for after ...

Creative (Albeit Poor) Internal Solution to Dillon Gee

The Mets will be faced with an upcoming roster move soon as Gee is about to go on the DL till at least September. You can read about that story everywhere, it’s not the focus here. What are the Mets supposed to do? Do they trade for another pitcher? Do they rely on Batista? Do they rush Harvey? Harvey says he’s ready, and his last several starts have shown improvement but Mets...

Mets lose Dillon Gee for the season: is it time for Matt Harvey?

Few Mets fans have been riding the Dillon Gee bandwagon for as long as I have. To me, and some of my closest Mets fan friends, he’s the second-coming of Rick Reed, down to sharing the number the veteran righty wore in his time in New York. Over the All-Star break, Gee was revealed to have a blood clot in an artery located in his right shoulder, which will require...

When the Disabled List is the Best Case Scenario

As a human, Dillon Gee is recovering from a blood clot in his throwing shoulder. I'm pleased that the Mets medical staff caught this quickly and that Dillon can recover from this because blood clots are as scary as it gets. I'm not a doctor, but this is as close to a relevant case that I could find on the internet (granted, I haven't looked too long.) As a pitcher, Dillon...
