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.
Mar 15 - 2:10 PM

Dillon Gee has notified the Royals that he will use the opt-out in his minor league contract if he is not added to the team's 40-man roster within 48 hours, per Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.

The assumption is that Gee will be added to the 40-man roster. The former Met figures to get a bullpen spot and offers some rotation insurance.
Mar 15 - 11:02 AM

Dillon Gee could exercise an opt-out in his minor league contract with the Royals on Tuesday.

Gee has allowed one run over five innings so far this spring. The veteran right-hander is a strong candidate for a bullpen spot, so the Royals will likely add him to the 40-man roster on Tuesday. One possible corresponding move is putting Mike Minor (shoulder) on the 60-day disabled list.
Mar 15 - 10:05 AM

Dillon Gee allowed one run over three innings Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Gee, in camp with the Royals on a minor league deal, allowed four hits and one walk while striking out three batters. The former Met has given up one run over five innings of work so far this spring. He hasn't been mentioned prominently for the fifth starter job, but he gives the Royals some interesting depth at the very least.
Mar 11 - 6:19 PM

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

Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith passes along that Gee has an opt out on March 2 if he's not on the 40-man roster by then. The deal could be worth up to $5.3 million if he makes the club and hits all his incentives, according to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan. Gee flamed out with the Mets last season, holding a 5.90 ERA over 39 2/3 frames before losing his spot on the 40-man roster. He had a career 3.91 ERA prior to last year, though, and is a solid depth signing for the Royals.

Dillon Gee has elected to become a free agent.

Gee had the right to opt for free agency because he has three years of service time and wasn't added back to the major league roster after being outrighted to Triple-A during the season. The 29-year-old posted a 5.90 ERA in seven starts and one relief appearance with the Mets this season, but he could compete for a rotation spot somewhere next spring.

Mets sent RHP Dillon Gee outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

They were unable to find a trade partner after designating Gee for assignment. The righty can technically refuse the assignment, but he won't do that since it would mean wiping out his $3.1 million salary for 2015.

Mets designated RHP Dillon Gee for assignment.

Gee got lit up for eight runs in just 3 2/3 innings Sunday by the Braves, watching his ERA climb to 5.90 ERA, but the 29-year-old right-hander should draw trade interest. The Royals, Rangers, Giants, Padres, Rockies, and Twins were among the teams linked to him this winter. Gee has a 4.03 career ERA and a 1.31 career WHIP in 679 1/3 major league innings. He's making $5.3 million this season.

Dillon Gee was hammered for eight runs over 3 2/3 innings, but took a no-decision as the Mets dropped Sunday's game against the Braves.

Gee allowed a whopping 12 base runners on 11 hits and an intentional walk while striking out four. Whether in the bullpen or in the rotation, Gee has not been good this year, sporting a terrible 5.90 ERA with a 1.66 WHIP, and a 25/11 K/BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings. He'll get the Braves again this weekend in a road start.

Mets activated RHP Dillon Gee from the bereavement list.

Gee will start on Saturday against the Braves as the club goes with a modified six-man rotation again. The right-hander holds a 4.50 ERA over 36 innings for the Mets this season.
