DILLON GEE COULD MISS THE REST OF THE REGULAR SEASON
Tue, 17 Jul 2012 12:30 AM EDT

The N.Y Mets have another pitching concern on their hands to open the 2nd half of the season. Dillon Gee had surgery to mend a damaged artery in his pitching shoulder, an operation that could knock him out of the rest of the season.

The Mets, who most thought required bullpen help to resume saying, now have a hole in their starting rotation, too. It is confusing how they can address their pitching beyond calling up lefty reliever Josh Edgin, who joined the team for the 2nd-half opener in Atlanta. NFL scores

Gee is slated to go through surgery last Friday in St. Louis and the procedure performed by Dr. Robert Thompson, an outstanding specialist, at the Barnes-Jewish Hospital, according to a source with knowledge of the operation. N.Y Mets doctors discovered a blood clot in an artery in Gee’s shoulder after the righty complained of insensibility in the fingers of his pitching hand.

“It’s possibly not likely he returns this year, but it is possible,” the source recounted. “Most players who’ve had it recommenced throwing 6 to 8 weeks after the procedure. More importantly, it’ll insure Dillon’s long-term health. He’ll have a full recovery and no issues going into (spring training).”

Team doctors dissolved the 1st blood clot with a catheter and medication at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and Gee was kept in the hospital. The N.Y Mets commented Gee would be discharged and then would mull over further treatment, which might include surgery.

Blood thinners, the source expounded, were another treatment option, but 1/2 the artery in question was damaged, and the blood thinners would not fix that. Due to the likelihood that blood clots could resurface, Gee was going to need surgery at some point, the source said.

Gee, 26 years old, who is 6-7 with a 4.10 ERA in 17 starts this season, was meant to start Friday’s 2nd-half opener. Chris Young start in Gee’s place and be followed by R.A. Dickey and either Jon Niese or Johan Santana in the series finale. Santana was initially going to open the second half, but the Mets wanted him to have additional rest for his right ankle.

Terry Collins announced in KC during the All-Star merriment that Miguel Batista is likely to take Gee’s spot in the rotation; at least at 1st. Batista is 1-1 in four starts this season with a 4.00 ERA.

The New York Mets should not need a 5th starter until at least July 21, which is why they settled on Edgin, who gives them a 2nd lefthander in the bullpen together with Tim Byrdak. Edgin, who was a candidate to make the big-league muster out of spring training after it seemed like Byrdak wouldn’t recover in time to break camp with the team, is 3-2 with a 3.89 ERA in 35 games with Triple-A Buffalo this season.

Other candidates for the rotation may include Jeremy Hefner, who was 1-2 with a 6.89 ERA in 3 starts earlier this season, or Chris Schwinden, who was 0-1 with a 12.46 ERA in 3 games (two starts).
