Dillon Gee to resume throwing next week

Dillon Gee visited with doctors in St. Louis on Friday, and will begin throwing next week, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

According to Rubin, Gee said while doctors told him he looks great, he doesn’t foresee a return this season.

Gee was diagnosed with a clot in the artery in his throwing shoulder after reporting numbness in his pitching hand in early July. He had surgery during the All-Star Break to repair the artery.

Gee went 6-7 with a 4.10 ERA in 17 starts for the Mets this season – he was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list on August 7.
