Dillon Gee 10 (Baron)

Dillon Gee has a slight setback, Mets will back off return

Dillon Gee did not throw a bullpen session on Sunday, GM Sandy Alderson said late Sunday.

“Gee did not feel comfortable today throwing a bullpen,” Alderson said. “It never got that far. So, we’ll back him off a little bit.”

Gee was placed on the 15-day disabled list May 14 with a strained right lat muscle.

He said Sunday morning that he planned to throw later in the day in advance of starting a minor-league rehab assignment later in the week.

His goal of returning to the rotation June 5 is now in question.

This always seems to happen with back muscles. I can’t ever remember a player returning on time from that type of injury. There are always set backs. It seems they think they’re 100 percent, get on field, go full force, and either realize it’s still not ready or, worse, they re-tweak it. Gee will get back. But, as is almost always the case, it’s going to be a bumpy road back to the active roster.

So much for trading him at the deadline....

Maybe theyre overdoing some air conditioning on him, or screwing with his bed or chair.

Crack Met Medical Staff will be applying leeches next week. Figure we'll be seeing him in September.

I hate when my stomach muscles make my back hurt...

Lats are not stomach muscles. Those are abs. But since Matt's coconut muscle is bruised, you can understand the confusion:)

Knowing the Mets amazing ability to be forthcoming about injuries, I now expect Gee to be out for the season....

I thought he had a lat pull? That is not a stomach muscle.

@barbarossa It is truly amazing.  What do you think Cerrone thinks when he takes a look at the comments almost every day and realizes he knows next to nothing about anything?

You are correct. If it's a lat muscle it's in the back, not the stomach. He's confusing it with an oblique,

In Metsblog speak, it could be called anything from hamstring to triceps and they think it was right.

@cj1786 That's understandable--many of his posts are oblique.
