Dillon Gee "plans to re-establish himself as a starter in Japan" and return to Major League Baseball in 2019, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.
Gee signed a one-year contract worth as much as $2 million on Wednesday with the Chunichi Dragons of Nippon Professional Baseball. He pitched pretty well in a swingman role last year for the Rangers and Twins, but the market has been bleak for lower-tier free agents this winter and the 31-year-old right-hander wanted a firm commitment that he could be a starting pitcher.

Dillon Gee has signed on to play with the Chunichi Dragons of Nippon Professional Baseball.

Financial terms have yet to be disclosed. Gee appeared in 18 games (four starts) between the Rangers and Twins last year and finished with a 3.47 ERA and a 41/15 K/BB ratio in 49 1/3 innings. The 31-year-old right-hander has also pitched for the Mets and Royals over parts of seven major league seasons. Assuming it's not a multi-year deal, he could see a much stronger market in MLB free agency next winter if he pitches well in Japan in 2018.

Dillon Gee was obliterated in Friday's loss to the Royals, allowing five runs on six hits in only 2 2/3 innings of work.

Gee also walked three on the night while striking out two. All of the damage against him came in the third inning which was capped off by a three-run homer from Mike Moustakas. He'll carry a 4.46 ERA and 1.43 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rays in Tampa Bay.

Dillon Gee will start against the Royals on Friday.

This will be Gee's third consecutive start since joining the rotation earlier this month. He has pitched to a 3.53 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 35 2/3 frames between the Rangers and Twins this season. Rounding out the weekend rotation for the upcoming set against the Royals, Kyle Gibson will toe the rubber on Saturday and Ervin Santana will take the ball on Sunday.

Dillon Gee surrendered four runs in four innings and was charged with a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He struck out five and walked one while allowing seven base hits, including home runs by Kendrys Morales and Josh Donaldson. Gee has been surprisingly effective in limited action this season but today is more like what his owners should expect moving forward. This was his second start since being inserted into the Twins' starting rotation. For the season he has a 3.53 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 35 2/3 innings combined between his stints with the Rangers and Twins.

Dillon Gee will start for the Twins against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

The Twins were deciding between Tim Melville and Gee for the fifth spot in the rotation. Both started in Monday's doubleheader against the White Sox, but Melville was subsequently designated for assignment. In five appearances with the Twins this season (four in relief, plus Monday's start), Gee holds a 1.93 ERA and 0.80 WHIP.

Dillon Gee spun six innings of one-run ball in a 10-2 victory in the second game of Monday’s doubleheader against the White Sox.

Gee was excellent, allowing just two hits while walking none and striking out four. He was perfect through four innings before Nicky Delmonico took him deep in the fifth. It was his longest appearance in the majors since last September 6. Gee is a couple of years removed from being even somewhat interesting from a fantasy perspective. He’ll have to keep it going to prove otherwise.

Dillon Gee is expected to get a start for the Twins during Monday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

The start had been expected to go to Dietrich Enns (shoulder), but he was placed on the disabled list Thursday. Gee will be pitching on three days' rest after he made a relief appearance Thursday, but he threw only 36 pitches over 2 2/3 scoreless innings. The veteran righty holds a 3.16 ERA and 22/8 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings in his eight appearances -- one start -- in the majors this season.

Dillon Gee earned his first save of the season on Tuesday, hurling four scoreless innings against the Brewers.

Gee struck out five and didn't walk a batter while scattering four hits. The 31-year-old right-hander has compiled a 2.70 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 19/7 K/BB ratio across 20 innings with the Twins this season.

Twins recalled RHP Dillon Gee from Triple-A Rochester.

After the Twins traded Jaime Garcia to the Yankees, Gee should get get a chance in the starting rotation. The 31-year-old owns a 4.13 ERA in the majors, but he hasn't enjoyed much success over the past couple of years. He's an underwhelming fantasy option.

Dillon Gee is being called up by the Twins, according to LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

The Twins have yet to confirm the report, but Gee figures to slide into the starting rotation. The 31-year-old had a brief stint with the big club back in June, but didn't make an appearance. He allowed 10 runs (six earned) over 13 innings with the Rangers earlier this season. Gee was a decent back-end starter for a few years with the Mets, but he's not a fantasy option at this point.

Twins optioned RHP Dillon Gee to Triple-A Rochester.

Gee was only up for a few days and didn't make an appearance. He's clearing room for the return of Hector Santiago (shoulder) from the disabled list.

Twins purchased the contract of RHP Dillon Gee from Triple-A Rochester.

Gee is already getting promoted even though he'd yet to make an appearance for the Twins in the minors after being signed earlier this week. The 31-year-old appears set for a long relief role for now, but it's possible he could eventually make some starts.

According to LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Twins will call up Dillon Gee from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

The Twins sent down Nik Turley and placed Ehire Adrianza on the disabled list, leaving a pair of open roster spots. One will be absorbed by Gee with the other going to Trevor Hildenberger. Gee inked a minor league deal with the Twins on Tuesday after the Rangers designated him for assignment last week. The right-hander will likely fill a long relief role for Minnesota.

Twins signed RHP Dillon Gee to a minor league contract.

He'll report to Triple-A Rochester, likely working out of the rotation there. Gee was pushed off the Rangers' 40-man roster last week after registering a 4.15 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in one start and three relief appearances.
