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.

    And now starts the second half collapse. David Wright will fold once again from the pressure.

      When does Wright fold again?

      Post-All Star performance during the two collapse years:

      2007 .364/.465/.596 1.061

      2008 .330/.406/.582 .988

      You must mean something else.

    I do hope there is no rush to bring Harvey up. I would rather live with Batista, trade for bullpen parts, and let Harvey develop at his own pace. And if that means we don’t make the playoffs, so be it.

    Still, this is depressing.

      We’re half a game back from the Wild Card race, it is completely ridiculous to think that we need to remain conservative and expect the worst. Starting Batista for any length of time is a horrible idea.

      I don’t think we should gut the farm for rentals, but Harvey’s doing everything he can to show that he’s ready.
