Dillon Gee was supposed to throw a bullpen session yesterday as part of his comeback from a strained lat muscle, but the Mets scrapped those plans because, according to general manager Sandy Alderson, he “did not feel comfortable” throwing.
Kieran Darcy of ESPN New York notes that as of Sunday morning Gee was telling reporters he planned to throw, so something must have changed at the last minute.
Gee was off to an excellent start before the injury and has been one of the best starters in all of baseball dating back to last season–posting a 3.43 ERA in 40 starts–but now he seems likely to spend at least a few more weeks on the disabled list.
