Dillon Gee managed to only give up one run but wasn't sharp Sunday, yielding six hits and five walks over five frames in a loss.
Gee did record five punchouts, but he needed 94 pitches to get through five innings and was flirting with trouble all day. Although he wasn't great in this one, the right-hander has overall rebounded from a slow first two starts, allowing just four runs across his last three outings. He'll face the Phillies next weekend.

Dillon Gee allowed just one run, needing only 70 pitches to get through 7 2/3 innings in a no-decision versus the Marlins on Monday.

Gee had shut the Marlins out through seven, but got into two-out trouble in the eighth. Justin Bour, Gee Gordon, and Martin Prado hit consecutive singles to plate the game's first run to chase Gee from the game. The Mets came back in the next frame to take Gee out of the running for the loss. Overall, the right-hander gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out three. Gee has been solid over his last two starts, lowering his ERA to 4.26. He'll look to keep it going over the weekend at home against the Nationals next.
Apr 27 - 9:10 PM

Dillon Gee allowed two runs over seven innings Wednesday in his start against the Braves.

Gee struck out three, and his one walk was an intentional pass to the No. 8 hitter. He needed a solid outing to add to his job security, so this takes some pressure off. Still, there's a good chance he'll be surpassed by Rafael Montero eventually.
Apr 22 - 10:34 PM

Dillon Gee pitched five innings and allowed five runs on eight hits in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Gee struck out five and walked just one, but the game unraveled in the fifth inning, when he allowed RBI doubles to Christian Bethancourt and Andrelton Simmons, an RBI triple to Eric Young Jr. and an RBI single to Nick Markakis. The Braves just missed out on hitting for a collective RBI cycle in the frame (Freddie Freeman did chip in a solo home run in the first inning, though). The Braves ultimately scored four runs in that fifth inning. Gee was the subject of some spring trade speculation and starts like this aren't going to endear him to the Mets' front office. He'll try to improve when he faces the Marlins in his next start.
Apr 11 - 10:30 PM

Dillon Gee pitched 4 2/3 innings of two-run ball in Saturday's match-up with the Rangers.

He struck out four, walked two and allowed five hits while throwing 83 pitches. Both runs allowed came on infield singles. ESPN's Adam Rubin recently wrote that the Mets might be looking to trade the pitcher. If he's moved, prospect Rafael Montero would take his place in the rotation. Montero's the more interesting fantasy prospect, but Gee does provide serviceable, if unspectacular, innings. Gee's posted an ERA under 2.50 over 26 1/3 innings this spring. Expect an ERA closer to 4.00 in the regular season.
Apr 4 - 5:15 PM

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets "still may trade right-hander Dillon Gee within the month."

Gee moved back into the Mets' starting rotation following Zack Wheeler's season-ending injury, but Rubin hears that team officials would rather have prospect Rafael Montero in that vacated spot. Gee held the Cardinals to two runs over seven innings on Sunday, lowering his Grapefruit League ERA to 2.49. He's due $5.3 million in 2015 and will be arbitration-eligible for the final time in 2016.
Mar 30 - 11:28 AM

Dillon Gee yielded two runs in seven innings Sunday in the Mets' 3-2 defeat of the Cardinals.

Despite some rumors last week that the Mets could shift to Rafael Montero at the back of their rotation, Gee has done plenty to secure the spot. Since Zack Wheeler went down, he's pitched 14 2/3 innings, surrendering just the two runs he allowed today. We actually would prefer Montero from a fantasy perspective, but Gee deserves the chance to sink or swim.
Mar 29 - 4:18 PM

Dillon Gee held the Astros scoreless for four innings in his start Tuesday.

Gee's pitch count is still a little short of where it might be had he been used as a starter since the beginning of the camp, but he'll be ready to throw 90-100 pitches during the first week of the season. He has a 3.38 ERA in 10 2/3 innings this spring.
Mar 24 - 5:44 PM

Dillon Gee shut out the Astros for 3 2/3 innings as a Mets split-squad won 3-1 on Thursday.

Gee was making his first start since Zack Wheeler's injury put him back into the rotation. He has a 3.38 ERA through 10 2/3 innings. We're not very optimistic about him amassing value in NL-only leagues this year.
Mar 19 - 4:36 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that Dillon Gee will replace Zack Wheeler (elbow) in the starting rotation.

It was the obvious way to go. Gee was mentioned in trade rumors all offseason, but the Mets weren't able to find a match and he's now essentially assured a rotation spot to begin the year with Wheeler headed for Tommy John surgery. Of course, Gee has an injury history and the Mets have prospects Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz, and Rafael Montero in the pipeline, so he's no guarantee to keep the job. Gee, who turns 30 in April, had a 4.00 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 94/43 K/BB ratio in 137 1/3 innings last season.
Mar 16 - 4:06 PM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports hears the Rangers do "not seem especially interested" in Mets starter Dillon Gee.

The Rangers are facing the reality of a season with ace Yu Darvish, so it stands to reason they would at least broach the idea of Gee, whom the Mets have been interested in trading all winter. Heyman said the club will likely look internally to try to replace Darvish, at least initially. Gee's suitors, if there are any, are tough to identify at this point.
Mar 7 - 7:50 PM

Dillon Gee yielded two runs in two innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Braves.

Gee allowed two hits, walked two and struck out none. He needs to impress other teams this spring if he's going to land a rotation spot, because it's only happening with the Mets if someone gets hurt. Today's performance doesn't seem like a very good start.
Mar 4 - 5:08 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said "it's fair to say" that the Mets have had little to no trade talk involving Dillon Gee.

A recent rumor indicated that the Rangers were considering Gee. The right-hander has been pushed out of the Mets' starting rotation with the return of Matt Harvey, so he'll operate as a swingman, pitching initially out of the bullpen. Gee, who can become a free agent after the 2016 season, should continue to find his name in trade rumors throughout the season.
Mar 3 - 10:25 AM

Chris Cotillo of reports that "some in the game believe" the Rangers "may make a push" to acquire Dillon Gee.

The Rangers have been connected to Gee as far back as the Winter Meetings, though they've traded for Yovani Gallardo, Ross Detwiler and Anthony Ranaudo since then. Cotillo notes that it's "unclear if the sides are in active discussions." He also reports that "one scenario that is being thrown about in baseball circles" is a deal that would send Gee and "some additional pieces" to Texas for Jurickson Profar. It's hard to see that one having any legs, but it's certainly interesting and worth noting.
Mar 2 - 10:38 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated Friday that the club could use a spot starter at times during the upcoming season.

It makes sense with Matt Harvey coming back from Tommy John surgery and Jacob deGrom also needing to have his innings monitored. The "sixth starter" responsibilities would surely fall to Dillon Gee, though youngsters like Rafael Montero, Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard could also get a look at some point.
