New York Mets
NEW YORK -- Dillon Gee's first rehab start is in the books.
Gee tossed two scoreless innings against the Gulf Coast League Marlins in Jupiter, Fla., on Tuesday afternoon. He allowed one hit and struck out two.
Gee had indicated this start would be short. He expects to make two more rehab appearances before rejoining the Mets. He likely will not have to wait five days to make his next rehab start, since this one was so short.
If the schedule holds, Gee should be ready to reenter the Mets rotation in about 18 days.
He landed on the disabled list on May 11 with a strained right lat.
Nothing like being out on the mound competing!! Good to be back in action!! Even better to feel great doing it! #DLsucks
