Dillon Gee‘s remarkable run dating back to last season will be put on hold, as the Mets have placed the right-hander on the disabled list with a strained lat muscle.
Gee has a 2.73 ERA in eight starts this season and one of the five lowest ERAs in baseball among all starters since last year, joining Jose Fernandez, Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, and Max Scherzer in some amazing (and now 40 percent injured) company.
New York already made a change to its rotation earlier this week by shifting Jenrry Mejia to the bullpen and calling up prospect Rafael Montero for his big-league debut tonight. And now the Mets will also add call-up (and 26-year-old non-prospect) Jacob deGrom for his big-league debut Thursday in place of Gee.
