Rangers signed RHP Dillon Gee to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Gee put up a 4.68 ERA and 89/37 K/BB ratio over 125 innings last season in a swingman role with the Royals before being shut down in September due to blood clots in his shoulder. He eventually underwent surgery in October for thoracic outlet syndrome, but the hope is that he'll be ready for spring training. That's far from a sure thing, but he'll provide insurance for the rotation and bullpen if he's back to full health. Of course, the Rangers reportedly reached an agreement last week with Tyson Ross, who is also coming back from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome.

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports that Dillon Gee was cleared medically following last October's thoracic outlet surgery.

Cotillo says that Gee has been throwing since mid-December and there are "multiple teams interested at this point." The 30-year-old holds a 4.97 ERA since the beginning of 2015 and the track record for pitchers coming back from thoracic outlet surgery isn't great, so it's probably not going to cost much to land Gee.
Jan 6 - 5:59 PM

Dillon Gee has elected free agency.

Gee was already an obvious non-tender candidate and ultimately chose to become a free agent after being outrighted off the 40-man roster. The 30-year-old posted a 4.68 ERA and 89/37 K/BB ratio in 125 innings over 14 starts and 19 relief appearances this past season. He underwent surgery last month for thoracic outlet syndrome, but hopes to be ready for spring training wherever he lands.

Dillon Gee will undergo thoracic outlet syndrome surgery.

Gee has been dealing with shortness of breath brought upon by blood clots in his lung and shoulder. The right-hander hopes to be ready for spring training but is probably a non-tender candidate as he enters his final year of arbitration eligibility.

Dillon Gee has been shut down for the season due to blood clots in his lung and shoulder.

Gee experienced shortness of breath following an appearance Sunday in Detroit and had to be hospitalized overnight. He's feeling better now, but the Royals are going to play it safe with the 30-year-old right-hander for obvious reasons. Gee finishes 2016 with a 4.68 ERA in 14 starts and 19 relief appearances.

Dillon Gee surrendered five runs in 3 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the A's.

Gee had turned in four pretty solid starts in a row, so his rotation spot is probably safe despite the setback. Still, the Royals' postseason hopes took another big hit tonight.

Dillon Gee picked up a quality start Tuesday against the Twins, allowing three runs on eight hits over six innings of work.

The good news is that Gee gave up just the three runs; the bad news is that it could have been much worse, as all three runs came on solo homers. That's been Gee's Achilles heel -- he's given up 22 dingers in 112 innings this year -- but he did well to limit the damage otherwise. The 30-year-old owns a 4.34 ERA and 1.44 WHIP and, assuming he stays in the rotation, he'll next square off with the Athletics on Monday.

Dillon Gee held the Yankees to one run over six innings in a victory Monday.

Gee's rotation spot was in doubt for a spell, but then setbacks from Kris Medlen and Mike Minor took away Kansas City's alternatives. He's done pretty well his last three times out, allowing a total of five runs in 18 1/3 innings. He's still a risky play in AL-only leagues.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Aug 12, 2016 05:28:00 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.
