Dillon Gee was charged with three runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.
Gee hung zeroes on the scoreboard until the 6th inning when all three runs scored. After getting the first batter out he allowed four consecutive singles to bring in two runs. He was then relieved by Peter Moylan, who gave up a sacrifice fly to let in the third run charged to Gee. The one bad inning spoiled what was shaping up to be an impressive outing. He now has a 5-7 record and 4.55 ERA with 80 strikeouts and 30 walks in 99 innings. Aug 24 - 10:19 PM

Dillon Gee pitched well over seven innings Thursday, holding the Twins to one run on five hits while striking out seven in a win.

Gee has been all over the map this season, but one of the few places he hasn't been is the dominant territory he lived in for much of the night Thursday. Gee induced ground balls on 61 percent of the balls in play, and even the Twins' run came on a mistake that Brian Dozier punished for a solo homer. The rest of the Twins hits were singles. Gee is now 5-6 with a 4.52 ERA in 93 2/3 innings of work, and he'll look to keep the magic going -- although we're skeptical, to say the least -- Wednesday against the Marlins.
Aug 19 - 12:32 AM

Dillon Gee allowed 11 hits and five runs over 5 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

Gee served up three homers on the evening, accounting for four of the five runs allowed. The loss dropped Gee to 4-6 with a 4.78 ERA and 1.57 WHIP through 86 2/3 innings this year. He'll get a shot at revenge Thursday when the Royals take on the Twins in Kansas City.
Aug 13 - 9:58 PM

Dillon Gee will start on Saturday against the Twins.

Gee made a two-inning relief appearance in Wednesday's extra-innings game, but that won't keep him from taking his regular turn Saturday. He's not an advisable fantasy option.
Aug 12 - 5:28 PM

Royals manager Ned Yost hasn't ruled out Dillon Gee for Saturday's start versus the Twins even after Gee's two-inning relief appearance Wednesday.

Gee had to pitch the final two frames of a 14-inning game Wednesday, throwing 32 pitches along the way. It's possible he'll return to start on two days' rest, though. "We’re not totally past Gee coming back," Yost said. "He still might be ready to go." Chris Young and Brian Flynn, both of whom also pitched Wednesday, are the other candidates to start Saturday.

Dillon Gee turned in a quality start on Friday but was not very impressive doing it, allowing three runs in six innings while walking four batters and fanning only two.

He took a no-decision as the game was not decided until the ninth inning. Gee started the game by allowing a lead-off home run to Devon Travis but gave up only three hits the rest of the way. He has a 4.65 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 79 1/3 innings split between the rotation and relief.
Aug 5 - 11:40 PM

Dillon Gee surrendered four earned runs over six innings Sunday in the Royals' loss to the Rangers.

Gee gave up a two-run homer to Nomar Mazara in the bottom of the first inning and a two-run shot to Mitch Moreland in the bottom of the fourth. It's probably time for the right-hander to move back to long relief. He has a 4.66 ERA and 1.58 WHIP on the year.
Jul 31 - 5:32 PM

Dillon Gee's return to the rotation didn't go quite as planned Tuesday, allowing 10 hits and five runs over five innings in a loss to the Angels.

Gee didn't have many answers for the Angels' bats, as four of the 10 hits went for extra bases, including a home run off the bat of Carlos Perez. It wasn't an encouraging showing after Gee had been bumped from the rotation by Brian Flynn last week. Given his 4.54 ERA and 1.60 WHIP, there's a decent chance the Royals once again look for a better option before Gee's turn comes up this weekend.
Jul 27 - 12:04 AM

Dillon Gee is expected to start on Tuesday against the Angels.

Gee was swapped out in favor of Brian Flynn for one turn in the rotation, but it appears the Royals will go back to Gee now. The right-hander holds a 4.19 ERA over 19 appearances -- five starts -- for Kansas City this season.
Jul 24 - 4:00 PM

Dillon Gee came on for the injured Yordano Ventura to allow one run over 2 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Gee was forced into emergency duty in the third inning after Ventura exited with an apparent right ankle injury. Maikel Franco burned him for an infield RBI single in the fifth inning, but Gee otherwise came away from his relief work unscathed. In 53 1/3 innings (17 appearances including four starts) this season, the 30-year-old right-hander holds a 4.05 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 46/19 K/BB ratio.
Jul 3 - 5:08 PM

Royals recalled RHP Dillon Gee from Triple-A Omaha.

Gee returns to the Royals after being sent down to Triple-A on June 1. In 11 appearances (four starts) with the big league club, Gee owns a 4.28 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 39/13 K/BB ratio across 40 innings. He'll be available in long relief for now but will presumably start in place of Yordano Ventura when Ventura serves his suspension.
Jun 11 - 9:55 AM

Royals optioned RHP Dillon Gee to Triple-A Omaha.

Gee surrendered four runs on nine hits in Tuesday's win over the Rays and held a 4.28 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and 39/14 K/BB ratio over 40 innings (11 appearances, four starts). The 30-year-old right-hander will bide his time at Triple-A, but figures to return to the majors at some point later this season.
Jun 1 - 5:38 PM

Dillon Gee allowed nine hits and four runs over five innings in a win over the Rays on Tuesday.

On the plus side, Gee struck out seven compared to just one walk. The win was the second of the year for the right-hander, improving him to 2-2 with a 4.28 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 11 appearances (four starts). Gee will try to put together a winning streak Sunday at the Indians.
Jun 1 - 12:20 AM

Dillon Gee took a loss Wednesday after yielding six runs -- five earned -- in four innings versus the Twins.

Not a good sign when Minnesota's punchless offense can post crooked numbers against you. Gee gave up two runs in the first inning, one more in the second, and then three more between the fourth and fifth. He watched his ERA rise from 2.90 to 3.86 in the matinee loss at Target Field. We'd expect the regression to continue.
May 25 - 4:38 PM

Dillon Gee pitched well in Friday's win over the White Sox, allowing just one run on four hits over his five frames.

The right-hander punched out five on the evening and walked only one. While he has yet to make it out of the sixth inning in each of his first two starts, he sports a solid 2.90 ERA and 1.29 WHIP through 31 innings on the season. He could be worth a look as a streaming option next week with an attractive matchup against the Twins in Minnesota on tap.
