Dillon Gee 5 (Baron)

Dillon Gee spoke about Matt Harvey’s rehab

Dillon Gee saw Matt Harvey earlier this week, said he looks “great,” but hopes Harvey does not rush back from Tommy John surgery to pitch in 2014.

“I want him to be smart about it because he’s such an amazing pitcher,” Gee said, while accepting an award at the Thurman Munson Dinner in New York on Tuesday. “I’d hate for him to come back too early.”

The Mets and Gee avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year, $3.625 million contract earlier this year (Rubin, Jan. 18). He is under contract through 2016.

Gee went 12-11 with a 3.62 ERA in 32 starts for the Mets in 2013. He went 10-5 with a 2.71 ERA in his final 22 games.

Did Gee ever get that torn labrum fixed

He's just saying that cause he's the odd man out when he comes back.

Dillions right Harvey needs to take all the time his arm needs to recovery

I agree he shouldn't start but if he feels Ok in September then I'm fine with letting him pitch an inning or two here and there in relief. Can't hurt to have a fresh arm in september.

I respect Harvey's sentiment, and I love the bulldog mentality and hope he never loses it. But this isn't the right occasion to prove how hardcore he is; just focus on being even stronger for 2015.

I think Niese would probably bring back more than gee. I could see the possibility of 2 of niese/gee/colon being traded between now and the beginning of the 2015 season.

Gee and Niese really need to step up this year.  I have to think one of them along with a top prospect will be traded for a bat in July though...

I really like Gee... He's a smart pitcher who keeps learning and improving, not to mention people forget how he was coming off a pretty serious shoulder issue and was our most consistent pitcher last year from start to finish (not including his starts against the Phillies). It's just sad because there's a good chance this could be his last season as a Met... I think Niese for sure is done, but probably Gee too.

@John Paul Cullinane I agree that he will probably be traded, but for a top prospect not with a top prospect

@Zach Ripple I think gee is more likely to go, because niese is already locked in at a reasonable rate plus he is lefty, which none of the young arms coming up are
