Mets prospect Rafael Montero may be headed to bullpen


(3/25/2015) Mets pitching prospect Rafael Montero most likely punched his ticket to make the big club Wednesday with a solid four-inning start against the Yankees.

In his first start of the spring, Montero allowed one earned run, three hits and struck out four.

Montero officially remains in competition with Dillon Gee for the rotation's fifth spot, but it appears he'll be added to the Mets bullpen when the season begins.

When asked where Montero fits into the Mets' pitching staff, manager Terry Collins said "On the team - somewhere."

Montero suggested he is fine with any role.

"[In the] minor leagues I was a starting pitcher," Montero said through an interpreter. "Now, in the big leagues, I'm ready to pitch ... In the minor leagues, I want to start. That's in the minor leagues. But here in the big leagues that's their decision."

Montero has pitched nine innings in the spring so far, posting a 4.00 ERA with nine hits and eight strike outs.

Mets' Dillon Gee hasn't allowed a run in last two spring starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee, who is competing with Rafael Montero for the final spot in the rotation, tossed four scoreless innings during Tuesday's spring game against the Astros. He allowed four hits and one walk, while striking out one.

Gee, who is likely to replace Zack Wheeler in the rotation, has tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two starts, lowering his spring ERA to 2.45 in 14 2/3 innings.

Gee said he threw only fastballs and changeups the first time through the lineup at the request of pitching coach Dan Warthen.

“I’m a sinker guy. I like to use the defense. So it was nice to get a lot of groundballs,” Gee said, per ESPN. “Me and Dan were talking. I was upset about 70 pitches through four innings. But he said, ‘Remember, I kind of limited you to fastball-changeup the first time through the order. You might have been able to put somebody away faster if you were using everything.’

“We were just working on seeing how good of a pitcher I could be with two pitches the first time through and not break out the other stuff.”


Mets' Dan Warthen: Final spot down to Dillon Gee, Rafael Montero


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Though it appears as if Dillon Gee is destined to take Zack Wheeler's spot in the starting rotation, Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen told reporters the final spot is still up for grabs between Gee and Rafael Montero, according to NJ.com.

"I think it's still a competition between Montero and Gee," Warthen said. "They're both quality pitchers, I don't think we're going to hamstrung by either one of them."

Gee threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings in a split-squad game against the Astros. He has a 3.38 ERA through four spring outings (two starts). Montero allowed one run on two hits over 3 2/3 innings of work against Houston on Thursday. He has a 5.40 ERA through two outings (five innings) this spring.


Mets' Dillon Gee posts 3 2/3 scoreless innings in split-squad game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee, will replace Zack Wheeler in the starting rotation, threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings in a split-squad game against the Astros in Port St. Lucie, Fla., per ESPN. The Mets are stretching out Gee, and had him log 47 pitches on Thursday. He is scheduled to throw five innings and 65 pitches in his next outing.

"I was almost a little nervous for today -- just having to start again," Gee said. "It's exciting. And I get adrenaline every time I get to do something I really love to do. It was nice. I tried to stay within myself and work on things and take it for what it was, but it was exciting to get back out there and do what I like to do."


Mets' Dillon Gee will start a spring game on Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee told reporters he was informed by pitching coach Dan Warthen that he would be stretched out for the final spot in the rotation, according to the New York Post. He will start a game on Thursday.

"I guess that was kind of his way of saying that I’m going to start until we see something else going on," Gee said. "I don't know."

Gee will replace Zack Wheeler in the starting rotation, after he was diagnosed with a fully torn UCL, and is likely facing Tommy John surgery.

"I told Zack this yesterday. I said, 'I would rather be pitching in the bullpen than have this happen to you,'" Gee said. "And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I hope that at this point now, I can just help the team in that regard."


Collins: Noah Snydergaard not quite ready for Mets yet


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Noah Snydergaard struggled in his appearance for the Mets on Monday, giving up two runs in 2.2 innings. The performance was more frustrating, considering his appearances with the big club may be numbered. 

Snydergaard lost out to Dillon Gee in the battle to replace Zack Wheeler in the starting rotation, and, while he shows promise, the Mets think he's not quite ready for the Major Leagues. 

"They've got to pitch their way up," manager Terry Collins told MLB.com's Anthony DiComo. "We like Noah a lot. I like him a lot. He's going to be a real good pitcher, I'll tell you. There's going to be a time where you're going to look up and we're going to have a lot of real hard-throwing guys in the middle of that rotation. … There'll be some discussions we'll have with Noah about what we think he's got to do."


Mets name Dillon Gee as Zack Wheeler's replacement in rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed that Dillon Gee will likely replace Zack Wheeler's spot in the rotation, according to MLB.com. The team announced earlier on Monday that Wheeler has a fully torn ulnar collateral ligament, an injury that will likely lead to Tommy John surgery.

Gee was 7-8, with a 4.00 ERA in 22 starts for the Mets last year. In his five MLB seasons, all with the Mets, he's 40-34, 3.91. He was destined to start in the bullpen before Wheeler's injury. His last relief appearance was in 2011.

"That's why we've got him. He'll be the guy," Collins said.


Report: Dillon Gee likely candidate to replace Zack Wheeler in rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) With Zack Wheeler likely headed for Tommy John surgery, the Mets have considered Rafael Montero as a possible candidate for his rotation spot. However, Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Dillon Gee has shown signs of displeasure with his role in the bullpen, and appears the most likely candidate to replace Wheeler, though general manager Sandy Alderson refused to name one in a phone conference with media members on Monday.

Montero went 1-3 with a 4.06 ERA over 10 appearances (eight starts) in his first major-league season. Gee went 7-8, with a 4.00 ERA in 22 starts for the Mets last year. He has gone 40-34 with a 3.91 ERA in his five MLB seasons, all with the Mets.


Report: Mets unlikely to trade Dillon Gee for lefty bullpen help


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) The Mets are unlikely to deal pitcher Dillon Gee for a left-handed relief option, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

The team is in need of a primary lefty in the bullpen after it was reported Sunday that Josh Edgin is headed for Tommy John surgery. The team's internal candidates haven't pitched well this spring. However, the teams that have reportedly been interested in Gee, a starting pitcher who will likely open the season in the bullpen, don't match up well in terms of excess lefty relief options.


Mets' Dillon Gee on bullpen: 'I think it's something I can do'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee closed out Wednesday's spring loss against the Marlins, giving up one hit in 1 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out one. He spoke about the transition from the rotation to the bullpen with NJ.com.

"It's different but I think it's something I can do," Gee said.

Gee was notified somewhere around the seventh inning that he would be used, shortening his usual preparation time before heading to the mound.

"It's miniscule to what I normally would do," Gee said. "Which might save my arm - I don't know."

Gee is the odd man out of the Mets rotation this spring, leaving him in line to pitch out of the bullpen at the beginning of the season.


Rangers not especially interested in Mets pitcher Dillon Gee


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) The Rangers may need some reinforcements to their starting rotation with Yu Darvish dealing with a sprained UCL. But they are not expected to get it from the Mets, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

The Rangers are not especially interested in Mets pitcher Dillon Gee, even though he's been in their crosshairs in the past, according to Heyman. Gee, who posted a 7-8 record in 2014 with a 4.00 ERA in 137 1/3 innings, has been rumored to be on the way out of New York, but he continues to say he's not worrying about the rumors.

"In the end it doesn't matter, wherever that is," Gee said, per NJ.com. "Whatever role, whatever team.


Mets' Gee: I don't care what's going on, just trying to get ready for season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee took the hill Wednesday for his spring debut against the Braves amid speculation of whether he will be with the team come opening day. Gee allowed two runs on two hits and two walks in two innings. He didn't record a strikeout.

"In the end it doesn't matter, wherever that is," Gee said, per NJ.com. "Whatever role, whatever team.

"I don't care what's going on. I'm just trying to get myself ready for the season."


Mets not in significant trade talks with other clubs for Dillon Gee


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters there's barely any dialogue between other clubs about potential trades for pitcher Dillon Gee, who was on the block during the winter meetings. Gee is scheduled to start Wednesday's Grapefruit League opener against Atlanta, though he's slated to start the regular season as a long reliever.

"I think most clubs, including ours, are focused on what's going on in camp and evaluating what they already have," Alderson said, per ESPN. "If there's going to be any significant trade talk, I think typically it's going to happen later in spring training, unless there's an injury of some sort. By and large, I think that comes more in the second half of spring training."


Mets' Collins: Dillon Gee is first option if starter is needed for rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday if anything happens to a starting pitcher, Dillon Gee would be the first option to join the rotation over any of the team's pitching prospects, per NJ.com.

"Montero's a name," Collins said. "Gee's a name. Syndergaard's a name. Bunch of guys you gotta take a look at. We've got to get Dillon Gee ready. If somebody goes down, he's the guy. He'd be the next guy. This guy's won 14 games two years in a row in the big leagues. He's going to be the next guy and then after that you just have to see what happens."


Mets pitcher Dillon Gee believes he's a starter


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2015) After Mets manager Terry Collins said pitcher Dillon Gee will likely pitch out of the bullpen if there are no injuries, Gee said he feels he should be a starter, reports NJ.com.

"I feel like I should be starting somewhere," Gee said. "I think my record and stuff have proven that I could be a starter in the big leagues. So to be sent to the bullpen this early in my career when I could be getting on another role. I've pitched well — before I got hurt last year I was pitching extremely well. I'd say it's just frustrating to know that I could be in the bullpen where I definitely could be starting, a starter still."

Gee said he's preparing as if he'll be a starting pitcher, but added he isn't sure if he'll pitch as a starter or out of the bullpen.

"I think I can still succeed as a starter. It's frustrating in that regard. If I stay on this team then obviously, number-wise, something is going to have to happen. I'm going to do the best I can where ever that is," Gee said. 


Mets' Dillon Gee moving to bullpen barring injuries to rotation


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) If the Mets come out of spring training without any injuries to their starting rotation, manager Terry Collins said pitcher Dillon Gee will move to the bullpen, according to ESPN.com.

ESPN also reported the Mets would be willing to trade Gee if the opportunity presented itself. However, Collins said he wants to have Gee on the roster in case he's needed to step into the rotation.

“Obviously we have to get him ready to start,” Collins said. “As I’ve said every spring, we’ve got to find six or seven starters, because you don’t know what’s going to happen in spring training. I certainly hope Dillon is on this team.


Dillon Gee likely to be spot starter for Mets


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson addressed the team's crowded starting rotation in a media appearance on Friday. 

Dillon Gee appears to be the odd man out, and, with a trade unlikely, Alderson said the Mets would use him as a spot starter. Gee would work in long relief in between starts. 

Alderson said the team wouldn't experiment with a six-man rotation. 


Report: Dillon Gee 'could be traded' by Mets in spring


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2015) Mets RHP Dillon Gee was the subject of offseason trade rumors. That's understandable, since he arrived at spring training as one of six established starting pitchers on the Mets' staff. 

The other candidates for the Mets' rotation are: LHP Zack Wheeler, 41-year-old RHP Bartolo Colon, LHP Jon Niese , RHP Jacob deGrom, who won last season's NL Rookie of the Year award and RHP Matt Harvey, returning after missing last year with arm surgery.

A source told ESPN New York that, although there wasn't much trade talk on the first day of camp, Gee "could be traded" during the spring, if the right deal came along.

Colon is also a candidate to be traded to clear the logjam in the starting rotation.  

If the team keeps all six pitchers, Gee is the leading candidate to be sent to the bullpen for long relief and the occasional spot start. 

Gee was 7-8, with a 4.00 ERA in 22 starts for the Mets last year. In his five MLB seasons, all with the Mets, he's 40-34, 3.91. His last relief appearance was in 2011. 


Mets might not be able to trade starting pitcher before camp begins


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2015) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has expressed in the past a goal of trading a starting pitcher before spring training. However, it appears that goal might not happen the closer it gets to the start of spring training, which means a player like Dillon Gee could end up as a very expensive bullpen arm, per ESPN.

"Things will probably work themselves out in spring training," Alderson said. "Hopefully we don't have an injury, but we do have some flexibility in the 'pen. So if somebody has to move to the 'pen for a period of time, I think that would be acceptable to us."


Report: Mets not close to trading pitcher Dillon Gee


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2015) While various clubs have expressed interest in Mets pitcher Dillon Gee, the Mets are not in negotiations to trade him anytime soon, reports MLB.com.

In 2014, Gee went 7-8 with a 4.00 ERA. The Mets are less than a month away from spring training and are also believed to be hesitant to depart with any of their starting pitchers.


Report: Three to four teams still in on Mets SP Dillon Gee


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Three to four clubs still remain interested in Mets pitcher Dillon Gee, sourced told Mike Puma of the New York Post. Jonathon Niese and Bartolo Colon are still "long-shots" to be traded, per the report.

Gee settled for $5.3 million next season prior to Friday's arbitration deadline. He finished last season 7-8 with a 4.00 ERA, marking the third time in four years his ERA has reached that level.


Mets lock up Dillon Gee, Ruben Tejada before arbitration deadline


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) The Mets reached a settlement with starting pitcher Dillon Gee and shortstop Ruben Tejada prior to Friday's arbitration deadline, reports ESPN. Gee agreed to a one-year deal, worth $5.3 million, while Tejada settled for $1.88 million.

Jenrry Mejia and Lucas Duda did not reach an agreement before the 1 p.m. deadline.


Dillon Gee: Leaving Mets would be like 'leaving your second home'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) As speculation continues to grow about a possible trade, Mets starting pitcher Dillon Gee is hoping for a resolution, per MLB.com. He said that leaving the Mets would be like "leaving your second home."

"I'm in a weird situation, and you kind of wonder what's going to happen. But at the same time, I think we all sort of know what we're getting into when we play this sport. It's something that's probably going to happen to everyone at some point. To me, I'm still just trying to get ready every day and get ready to have a great year in 2015 no matter where that is, and let the rest take care of itself."

It was previously reported by the New York Post that the Mets are expected to trade a starting pitcher, likely Gee, in the next 7-10 day. A trade could hinge on free agent starting pitcher James Shields first signing a deal.

Gee finished last season 7-8 with a 4.00 ERA, marking the third time in four years his ERA has reached that level.


Report: Mets expect to trade SP in 7-10 days, likely Dillon Gee


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) The Mets expect to trade a starting pitcher, likely Dillon Gee, in the next 7-10 days, New York Post columnist Joel Sherman reported Tuesday. 

However, a trade could hinge on free agent starting pitcher James Shields first signing a deal. The Giants are reportedly one of the teams that like Gee, but if they sign Shields, then trading for Gee might no longer be an option.


Report: Mets expect SP trade talks to heat up, Gee top target


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2015) The Mets are expecting trade talks to pick up for starting pitchers Dillon Gee, Jonathon Niese and Bartolo Colon, a team source told the New York Post.

Gee appears to be the most likely candidate to be traded. New York was trying to deal him at the Winter Meetings in December. The Mets appear hesitant to trade Niese because he might be the only left-handed candidate for the rotation.

The source said if the Mets can't make a trade, there is a chance the team would go to spring training with six starters and have one of them potentially open the 2015 season in the bullpen.
