Dillon Gee is now on three National League West teams' radar, as the Rockies, Giants, and Padres are reportedly interested in acquiring the right-hander. The rumors come as the Mets' quest to trade a starter before the start of spring training continues.
Back at the Winter Meetings, there were plenty of talks about a potential Gee-to-Colorado deal, but they ultimately did not amount to anything. The trade chatter has picked up since last week, after Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reported that a three-team deal involving Gee had been in the works. The two other teams involved in that particular scenario, however, are not known.
The 28-year-old was serviceable in 2014, posting a 4.00 ERA, a 6.2 strikeouts-per-nine rate, and a 2.8 walks-per-nine rate in 137 innings of work. With the return of Matt Harvey and a trio of young pitching prospects waiting in the wings, Gee seems to be the odd man out in the Mets' crowded rotation. A trade is the most likely scenario at this point.
