Mets Injury Updates: Dillon Gee pushes back mound work

By on 6/14/2014 06:00:00 AM

The New York Mets entered Friday's game against the San Diego Padres with a record of 29-37, fourth in the National League East. They have struggled of late, losing eight of their last nine games. The pitching staff, which has been solid despite numerous injuries, are looking forward to the return of Dillon Gee. He's pitched well this season, but is now trying to recover from a strained lat muscle. The return of Gee could be what the Mets need to make a push in the National League East.

I reported on Thursday that Gee was expecting to get back on the mound this weekend.  Gee had hit a standstill in his recovery from a strained lat muscle, but appeared to be making some progress over the past week. But now, Gee's target date to resume throwing has been pushed back a few days.

Adam Rubin, who covers the Mets for, tweeted the following update on Gee.
Gee, a 28-year old right hander out of Texas, made his Major League debut in 2010.  Last season, he was 12-11 with a 3.62 ERA.  He allowed 208 hits and 24 home runs in 199 innings, while striking out 142. In eight games this season, Gee is 3-1 with a 2.73 ERA.  He has a career record of 36-27 with a 3.78 ERA.
