UPDATE: Brad Como of SNY reports that tests on Gee revealed a clot in the artery of his right shoulder.

UPDATE #2: Gee will be placed on the disabled list and is expected to remain in the hospital for another day or two while doctors monitor the clot after they used a catheter to break it up.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Mets starter Dillon Gee has been hospitalized for what manager Terry Collins described as numbness in his fingers.

“They aren’t sure what it is yet,” Collins told Rubin, adding that Gee is scheduled to undergo an angiogram and further testing.

Gee was admitted to the hospital Monday and Rubin talked to an unnamed Mets teammate who said “the issue was believed to be blood-related in Gee’s shoulder.”

Gee, who’s emerged as a solid mid-rotation starter for the Mets at age 26 and threw 110 innings with a 4.10 ERA and 97/29 K/BB ratio in the first half, is lined up to start the second-half opener.

    Isn’t this where Rob Dibble announces he should man-up and just rub some dirt on it, spit in his own face and keep pitching?

      Good thing he went to the hospital–if enough blood gets blocked for enough time, he could’ve lost his arm or his hand.

    What does this mean for the long term? is it simply a blood thinner or something more serious?

    Very dangerous. This could have killed him if left unattended. Hope he has a full and speedy recovery.
