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.
“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.
