According to ESPN New York, Dillon Gee will undergo surgery on Friday to repair an artery in his pitching shoulder.
The right-hander was hospitalized after it was discovered that he had a blood clot. Gee complained of numbness in his pitching hand following his start on Saturday.
The surgery should prevent the recurrence of blood clotting.
In 17 starts this season, Gee is 6-7 with a 4.10 ERA.
The Mets don't expect Gee to resume throwing for six to eight weeks.
I'll take Gee being out for the rest of the year if it means he is healthy in the long run. He's a person first and baseball player second.
Here's to a speedy recovery.
Now the big question is...what to do about the rotation?
