Dillon Gee, in contention for a role in the Rangers' starting rotation, pitched 3 1/3 innings Saturday against the Indians. The stat line here looks much worse than it really was. But he allowed six hits and three runs (two earned) while walking two and striking out two. He held the Indians scoreless the first three innings and then things fell apart in the fourth. There was an error, etc. at a crucial moment which would have limited the damage to one run had it not occurred. Gee has appeared in four spring games and carries a 2.61 ERA along with a 1.65 WHIP.
Gee, Mike Hauschild, and A.J. Griffin lead the pack of several who are vying for the two spots in the rotation that are open because of injuries to Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner. Cashner is not slated to miss much time and in fact, could conceivably be ready to go when his turn in the rotation comes up. Reports are that Ross won't be ready until May at the earliest. Gee himself holds little fantasy value at this time.
The Royals have optioned RHP Dillon Gee to Triple-A.
While he pitched well at times this season and struck out nearly a batter per inning, his ratios weren't pretty (4.28 ERA, 1.53 WHIP). The team opted to remove him from the rotation after he allowed nine runs over his last two starts.
Starting pitcher Dillon Gee was designated for assignment on Monday by the New York Mets. Gee who is coming off another poor outing has been unhappy with his role the last few weeks. He has gone from starter to the bullpen to being used for spot starts.
The Mets now have a week to find a trade partner for Gee who is earning $5.3 million this season. This news shouldn't have any real ramifications on fantasy teams as far as Gee goes. However, this could pave the way for a promotion of Stephen Matz the next time the Mets need a spot starter.
On Sunday, the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 10-8 in what was a wild game. The Braves jumped out to eight run lead through four innings, but the Mets battled to tie the game in the fifth and then take the lead in the same inning. But Dillion Gee continued to struggle, he lasted just 3 2/3 innings, giving up eight runs on eleven hits, while striking out four and walking one.
Gee has struggled this season a great deal, he is 0-3 with five no decisions. He has a 5.90 ERA in 39 2/3 innings pitched, and 25 strikeouts. Gee has had a tough season, and seems to be getting hit around every time he starts a game. They have tried to get Gee going but he has not been able to get out of the gate. If you have him I think that it is time to drop him and look for a replacement. He is doing way more harm then good, I would stay away from Gee and look to replace him with a pitcher like Eduardo Rodriguez. Rodriguez has a very small sample size in the Majors, but has tremendous up side and has looked good in his four starts. It'll be interesting to see what the Mets do with the struggling Gee.
On Wednesday, Dillion Gee went four innings, giving up seven runs on eight hits, while walking one, and striking out one. Gee looked uncomfortable on the mound and struggled to go deep into the game against the Padres.
This season Gee is 0-2, with a 3.86 ERA in 30 1/3 innings pitched, with 20 strike outs. Gee has struggled this season in every game that he has pitched. In his six starts this season he has two loses and four no decisions. He has struggled to go deep into games only making past five innings twice. I would steer clear of Dillion Gee right now, he is pitching poorly right now. It doesn't look like Gee will be able to salvage the season with out making a major adjustment. If Gee can some how find his confidence on the mound, it'll be interesting to if he does make any adjustment to his game, and if he get his season back on track.
