MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that Dillon Gee will re-sign with the Rangers.

Sullivan says Gee will get a spot on the 40-man roster but has agreed to be sent down to Triple-A Round Rock for the time being. He'll be an option to pitch on April 15, which is the first time the club needs a No. 5 starter. Gee posted a 3.20 ERA this spring, and he struck out nine over six scoreless frames in his final spring outing. He's not a bad depth guy to have around.
Mar 31 - 2:57 PM

Rangers released RHP Dillon Gee.

Gee exercised the opt-out clause in his minor league contract Wednesday after being informed that he would not be on the Rangers' major league roster to open the 2017 season. He struck out nine batters over six shutout innings in his final Cactus League start against the Royals. There should be another opportunity out there for the 30-year-old right-hander.
Mar 30 - 8:53 AM

Dillon Gee turned in a strong outing Wednesday in the Rangers’ Cactus League tie with the Royals, yielding just two hits over six shutout innings.

He struck out nine and didn’t walk anyone. 51 of the right-hander’s 67 pitches went for strikes. Gee didn’t give up a hit until the fifth when Whit Merrifield finally broke through for a two-out single. The only other hit he allowed came in the sixth on an infield single by Peter O’Brien. Neither team scored a run in this game with Danny Duffy twirling four shutout frames for Kansas City. Gee will likely fill a long relief role for the Rangers this year.
Mar 29 - 7:19 PM

Dillon Gee allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits over 3 1/3 innings in Saturday's split-squad Cactus League game against the Indians.

All three runs on Gee's line came home in the fourth inning. He struck out two and walked two on the afternoon. The Rangers inked him to a minor league contract in mid-January. Back in October, Gee underwent thoracic outlet surgery, but he is said to be at full strength this spring. He figures to serve as rotational depth for the coming season.
Mar 18 - 5:57 PM

Dillon Gee (thoracic outlet surgery) is a full participant at the beginning of spring training.

Gee had thoracic outlet surgery last October but is on schedule with the rest of the Rangers' pitchers this spring. He's competing for a spot in the rotation but is a long shot to win said job.
Feb 17 - 4:16 PM

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.
Jan 17 - 12:50 PM

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.
Tue, Sep 27, 2016 04:25:00 PM

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.
Mon, Sep 12, 2016 11:07:00 PM

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.
Tue, Sep 6, 2016 11:50:00 PM

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.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 12:16:00 AM

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.
