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

Date:

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.
May 20 - 11:59 PM

Dillon Gee failed to make it out of the sixth inning in Saturday's loss to the Braves, yielding three runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Gee was making his first start of the season. The veteran right-hander had previously tossed 20 2/3 innings out of the bullpen and held a 2.61 ERA in that space. In Saturday's start, he struck out five and walked three. After surrendering an RBI double to Ender Inciarte with two on and one out in the sixth inning, he intentionally walked Freddie Freeman to set up a potential double play with the bases loaded and Kelly Johnson at the dish. That didn't work. Johnson burned him for a two-run single to end his night. A road date with the White Sox shows next on his schedule.
May 14 - 10:04 PM

Dillon Gee will start for the Royals on Saturday against the Braves.

It will be the first start of the season for Gee, who has registered a 2.61 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings of relief. The right-hander makes for a sneaky-good streaming option against the punchless Braves, even if he's only able to go five or six innings.
May 10 - 4:23 PM

Royals activated RHP Dillon Gee off the paternity leave list.

Gee was given a couple days off to be with his wife following the birth of a new baby girl. The righty holds a 1.80 ERA through five innings of relief this season.
Apr 21 - 2:51 PM

Dillon Gee is expected to return to the Royals' bullpen on Thursday.

Gee was given a few days off this week to be with his wife and the couple's new baby girl. The right-hander owns a 1.80 ERA in five innings of relief this season.
Apr 19 - 4:31 PM

Royals placed RHP Dillon Gee on the paternity leave list.

Gee's wife gave birth to a baby girl this week, so he'll take a couple of days away from the team. Players can remain on the paternity leave list for 24 to 72 hours.
Apr 19 - 3:15 PM

Dillon Gee was tagged for four runs over four innings Thursday against the Brewers.

Gee came into Thursday’s outing having allowed just three runs over his first 10 innings of work this spring. The performance shouldn’t have any impact on his standing with the team. He figures to open the year in the Royals’ bullpen, where he’ll pitch in long relief and serve as rotation insurance.
Mar 24 - 7:07 PM

Dillon Gee delivered a decent effort in Friday's Cactus League start against the Rangers, allowing two runs on six hits over his five frames.

Gee didn't issue a walk or record a strikeout in the contest. The Rangers were able to scratch out a pair of runs in the third inning, but other than that, Gee pitched fairly well. He's expected to begin the season in a long relief role for the Royals and is unlikely to hold any fantasy value in mixed leagues.
Mar 18 - 11:24 PM

Royals purchased the contract of RHP Dillon Gee from Triple-A Omaha.

Gee was prepared to use the opt-out in the minor league contract, so the Royals opted to officially add him to the 40-man roster. The 29-year-old is in line for a bullpen spot and will provide some rotation depth for the defending World Series champions.
