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.
Jun 22 - 11:57 PM

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.
Jun 20 - 8:53 PM

Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN reports that the Twins are in talks with free agent right-hander Dillon Gee.

Gee was designated for assignment by the Rangers last Friday after posting a 4.15 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over one start and three relief appearances. He elected to become a free agent two days later. It will probably be a minor league deal with Minnesota, and he'll likely be assigned to Triple-A Rochester.
Jun 20 - 8:26 PM

Dillon Gee has elected free agency.

Gee cleared waivers after being designated for assignment, but he'll look for a gig elsewhere rather than accept a minor league assignment.
Jun 18 - 3:59 PM

Rangers designated RHP Dillon Gee for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Tyson Ross, who will come off the 60-day disabled list to start Friday night against the Mariners. Gee had a 4.15 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in one start and three relief appearances with Texas.
Jun 16 - 4:33 PM

Dillon Gee surrendered four runs in 3 1/3 innings Tuesday in his spot start versus the Mets.

Gee, filling in for A.J. Griffin, gave up three homers and eight hits to his former team. He might be sent down after this one, and the Rangers could fill the rotation spot with Tyson Ross next time through.
Jun 6 - 11:50 PM

Dillon Gee will start for the Rangers on Tuesday in place of the injured A.J. Griffin.

The 31-year-old has appeared in two games out of the bullpen for the Rangers, hurling 6 1/3 scoreless innings while posting a minuscule 0.90 WHIP and 5/1 K/BB ratio. He isn't a recommended streaming option in mixed leagues, but could have some appeal in AL-only formats.
Jun 4 - 8:08 PM

Rangers recalled RHP Dillon Gee from Triple-A Round Rock.

He's taking the place of the injured A.J. Griffin on the Rangers' roster. It's unclear if he'll also take his spot in the starting rotation, or if Tyson Ross will be doing that upon his return next weekend.
May 27 - 2:03 PM

Rangers re-signed RHP Dillon Gee to a one-year contract; optioned him to Triple-A Round Rock.

Gee had a nice spring and will be an option to start for the Rangers when they first need a fifth starter on April 15.
Apr 2 - 12:46 PM'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.
