It has been quite the controversy for the Mets the past couple of weeks with their six-man rotation. It got so big that the Mets decided to scrap the idea and go back to a five-man rotation, or at least that was the original plan. Now it seems that Gee is going to serve as a swingman, and the Mets will try to get him spot starts to give some of their young arms an extra day.
Got confirmation: Six-man "light" rotation, meaning Dillon Gee slotted in when they can, but not a formal six-man rotation. #mets— Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) June 12, 2015
The innings limits for guys like Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard have created quite the dilemma for both Terry Collins, who has called it a literal pain in his "butt" (he used a more colorful term) and for Sandy Alderson. And it seems like the circus will continue for the time being.
