ESPN’s Adam Rubin is reporting that the Mets and starter Dillon Gee have agreed on a $3.625 million salary for 2014 in the right-hander’s first year of arbitration eligibility. The deal is at the exact midpoint between the $4.05 million for which Gee filed, and the $3.2 million for which the Mets filed.

Gee, who turns 28 at the end of April, finished the 2013 season with a 3.62 ERA in 199 innings of work. It was a tremendous bounce-back season after undergoing surgery on his right shoulder to repair a blood clot in July 2012. Going into 2014, Gee will slot into the middle of the Mets’ rotation behind Bartolo Colon and Jonathon Niese along with Zack Wheeler.

    Good, he’ll be good depth for them. Now to see who else they can sign

    Their rotation with Wheeler and Colon on top and Neise and Gee in the middle looks pretty deep. Their offense even has a little more pop with Grandy batting behind Wright . Looks like the Mets are getting back on track. Good luck to then their fans deserve it
