Dillon Gee, SP, New York Mets
Gee, 24, is in the rotation thanks to the assured absence of Johan Santana (shoulder). The Mets shut down Jenrry Mejia (shoulder) as well. As a minor leaguer, the right-handed Gee has fanned about eight hitters per nine and walked less than two per nine.
Perhaps there's more to his 4.96 ERA in his first full season at Triple-A Buffalo than meets the eye. In two starts (13 frames), Gee picked up one win and allowed just seven hits and one run; he struck out seven and walked seven, too. He induces a fair and upwardly mobile rate of grounders, too.
Alas, Gee isn't blessed with great stuff, and his confidence in his repertoire shows in his pitch tallies. He has been the quite "lucky," as they say. If he starts throwing super heavy stuff down ... Don't be fooled by the great start.
