New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (elbow) is pitching on two extra days of rest as the team tries to help him battle tendinitis in his elbow. Manager Terry Collins said there is a possibility of him being placed on the disabled list if his condition does not improve.

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (elbow) has been battling elbow tendinitis over his past few starts, but that hasn't hurt him. He has a 1.53 ERA with 32 strikeouts and just four walks over his past four outings heading into his start Saturday, June 22, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The New York Mets will return to a five-man rotation after the All-Star break, and manager Terry Collins indicated that SPs Shaun Marcum, Jeremy Hefner and Dillon Gee aren't guaranteed to have spots in the rotation when that happens. Marcum's $4 million salary doesn't make him immune, especially with the way Gee has pitched lately. Hefner could be moved to the bullpen or optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. "When we get back to five guys, I think we're going to take the five guys that we think are the best to run out there every fifth day, and what gives us the best opportunity to win," Collins said.
Fantasy Tip: The odd-man out will probably come down to whichever pitcher is throwing the poorest when the time comes. The club might prefer to leave Marcum in the rotation since he has bonuses in his contract if he's pitching in relief. Stay tuned.

Updating a previous report, New York Mets manager Terry Collins said the team is monitoring SP Dillon Gee (elbow) while he deals with elbow tendonitis. Gee said he has been dealing with the injury since spring training but that nothing is structurally wrong with his elbow.

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (hand) admitted after his start Wednesday, June 12, that he has been battling "flexor tendonitis" all season.
Fantasy Tip: Flexor tendinitis is a tendon injury of the wrist and/or palm of the hand. He has been fairly effective at times, including Wednesday against the Cardinals when he allowed just one run over 6 2/3 innings for his fifth win. It appears he is going to pitch with the pain, so fantasy owners can keep him active.

The New York Mets are expected to use a six-man rotation for at least one turn after they promote SP Zack Wheeler to the majors on Tuesday, June 18, for the team's doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves. Manager Terry Collins wants to keep all his starters in line following the twin bill. Workload may help to determine what happens next. SPs Jeremy Hefner and Dillon Gee remain the likeliest members to be considered for removal eventually.
Fantasy Tip: Gee is pitching better of late and has more to offer than Hefner, who has pitched poorly his last couple of times out. It certainly seems like it's shaping up as a five-man rotation that includes Gee, not Hefner, in the not-too-distant future.
