Dillon Gee is looking forward to a healthy 2013.
The 26-year-old right-hander told New York Daily News beat writer Anthony McCarron in a recent phone interview that his winter workouts are going smoothly and that he feels looser and more natural when he throws since having a blood clot removed in mid-July from an artery near his pitching shoulder.
“One of the things with my surgery we were hoping for was, by recouping some of the blood flow I had lost, that my recovery would be better and that seems to be the case so far,” said Gee. “I’m excited. The doctor said he was surprised I could recover every five days as it was, with the lack of blood and oxygen, so hopefully that will make it that much easier to bounce back after every start. You never know what the future holds, but we have a lot of positive signs going.”
Gee posted a solid 4.10 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 97/29 K/BB ratio across 109 2/3 innings this past season.
