Mets general manager Sandy Alderson believes that Dillon Gee will be making his return from the disabled list on Tuesday in the Mets' series against the San Diego Padres, according to ESPN's Adam Rubin. With Gee's return, the Mets will have four bench players.
Before getting injured, Gee had an 0-2 record with a 3.86 ERA while starting in five games this season. The right-handed pitcher landed on the disabled list after feeling groin pain in his start against the Washington Nationals. His most recent rehab start was on Tuesday with the Binghamton Mets against the Portland Sea Dogs, where he pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowed two earned runs and got the loss.
Prior to Gee's injury, Terry Collins wanted to use a spot starter, but with Gee's injury, the Mets instead called up right-handed pitcher Noah Syndergaard. So far this season the 22-year-old has started in four games with a 2-2 record and a 2.55 ERA. Also who can forget this home run? With Thor doing well, the Mets will now experiment with a six-man rotation.
