Dillon Gee will be discharged today after being hospitalized for finger numbness that stemmed from a blood clot in his shoulder, but according to a statement released by the Mets he may still require surgery.
Dillon was scheduled to start the second-half opener Friday, but instead he’s been placed on the disabled list and is out indefinitely.
Doctors used a catheter to break up the blood clot, but Gee may need further procedures to avoid a re-occurrence or additional complications.
