Mets | Dillon Gee to use nitroglycerine

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (shoulder) will have nitroglycerine cream on hand during games this year as a precaution, but he thinks his issues with circulation are past him. He resumed throwing off a mound two weeks ago but he isn't going full speed. Gee doesn't expect any recurrence of his circulation problems after having surgery last year. However, he still has numbness in his fingers in cold weather, which could affect him in New York. "Let's say if it's less than 35 degrees and I'm outside for much more than 30 minutes without gloves on, then my fingers will still go numb," Gee said. "But that's actually getting better, too. I mean, right after the surgery, they would go numb if it was 50 degrees outside. Over time it'll keep getting better, but that's going to take a while. My fingertips were damaged pretty badly because of all the blood clots I've been throwing through all the years. But it's definitely way, way better." He said he's further along in his offseason program than he normally would be.
