According to Adam Rubin, Dillon Gee has been hospitalized for testing. According to Terry Collins, Gee had experienced numbness in his fingers, the cause of which is still uncertain at this time. Andy McCullough reports that Gee had been scheduled to undergo an angiogram during the All Star break.

First and foremost, here's hoping that Gee is okay. While the news of Gee's hospitalization certainly comes as a surprise, it's probably a good sign that it doesn't sound like his admission to the hospital was under emergency circumstances.

The 26-year-old right-handed pitcher has been a pleasant surprise for the Mets this year. He has a 4.10 ERA, but his strikeouts are up, his walks are down, and his fielding-independent pitching statistics suggest that Gee has been better than his ERA.

Whether or not Gee will be able to pitch anytime soon remains to be seen as the Mets await a diagnosis of Gee's medical situation.
