Mets' Dillon Gee looks for redemption against Atlanta Braves

The last time the New York Mets lost a game, Dillon Gee was the starting pitcher.

The last time the New York Mets lost a game was against the Atlanta Braves on April 11th. The starting pitcher that night? Dillon Gee.

Out of all the starting pitchers in the rotation, Gee is struggling the most. He has a 7.59 ERA through two starts and is the only Mets starting pitcher without a win. When Gee faced the Braves in Turner Field, he allowed five runs on eight hits and only struck out two batters. Gee was given the last spot in the starting rotation over Rafael Montero to start the season. Now, it looks like there is a plan in place for Montero to slowly creep in and take Gee's spot in the rotation. Montero was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room for Danny Muno, but Terry Collins said he will be called back for a spot start on April 28 to give the Mets' other pitchers an extra day of rest.

Wednesday's game against the Braves could be a turning point for Gee. Tuesday night was Granderson's chance to break out of a slump. If Gee can have a solid outing, not only could the Mets improve to ten wins in a row, but it will be serve as redemption for his early season struggles.
