Royals | Dillon Gee struggles against Minnesota

Wed, 25 May 2016 17:49:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Dillon Gee (1-2) allowed six runs (five earned) on 10 hits in a loss to the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, May 25, with one walk and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Gee struggled mightily in his third start of the season against the team with the worst record in the majors, allowing 11 baserunners over four-plus innings. He should be viewed as a risky play for his next start against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday, May 30.

Royals | Dillon Gee struggles in first start

Sat, 14 May 2016 22:02:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Dillon Gee held the Atlanta Braves scoreless on three hits over the first five innings, but Gee retired only one of the six batters he faced in the sixth. He was charged with three runs and six hits, while striking out five and walking three, in a 5-0 loss on Saturday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: This loss can't be pinned entirely on Gee, because Kansas City has really struggled as of late. However, you may want to hold off putting Gee in your fantasy lineup. Depending on how long the Royals staff may be in flux, there is a chance the team will go with other pitchers to fill the holes. If Gee can start and quickly show some good stuff, then his value goes up. For now, leave him alone.

Royals | Kris Medlen has rotator cuff injury

Fri, 13 May 2016 09:07:17 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Kris Medlen (shoulder) is dealing with right rotator cuff inflammation. His 15-day disabled list stint is retroactive to Wednesday, May 11. Manager Ned Yost said both Medlen and SP Chris R. Young (forearm) should be able to return when they're eligible to come off the DL. SPs Dillon Gee and Danny Duffy will serve as fill-in starters in the meantime. Gee will throw against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, May 14, and Duffy will go Sunday, May 15. Duffy will begin on a 50-pitch limit.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Medlen nor Young are guaranteed to return to a rotation spot when they're healthy after really struggling before their injuries. Gee and Duffy aren't long-term solutions and aren't attractive options for the spot starts despite juicy matchups against the Braves. Both Gee and Duffy are unlikely to pitch deep in their starts this weekend. Keep tabs on Kyle Zimmer and Miguel Almonte in the minors, as both young pitchers could become options for the rotation at some point this year.

Royals | Two spots in KC rotation up for grabs

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 08:10:39 -0800

Kansas City Royals SPs Kris Medlen, Chris R. Young, Danny Duffy and Dillon Gee are expected to compete for the final two spots in the starting rotation during spring training, according to manager Ned Yost and pitching coach Dave Eiland.

Fantasy Tip: Yost hinted that SPs Ian Kennedy, Yordano Ventura and Edinson Volquez would likely be the first three starters in the rotation, although he is hesitant to name an Opening Day starter. Owners in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues should keep tabs on this competition throughout spring training and the winners are worthy of consideration as late-round fliers in this year's fantasy drafts.

Mets | NY to use spot starter soon

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 17:17:53 -0700

The New York Mets tentatively plan to use a spot starter on their next road trip, and Ps Dillon Gee and Logan Verrett are the primary candidates to receive a start. The Mets are looking for ways to slow the increasing innings totals for young SPs Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: You can ignore Gee and Verrett in all formats, since they're likely to only have the one start. This is just another reminder that the Mets' young starters will have one less start down the stretch. It also looks plausible that they'll go back to a six-man rotation when Steven Matz (lat) is ready to return around the beginning of September.

Mets | Dillon Gee won't be traded

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 09:09:00 -0700

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee has been placed on outright waivers after the Mets were unable to find a trade partner for the pitcher, according to a source. The team plans to send him to Class AAA Las Vegas. Gee had an ERA of 5.90 this season and had recently been moved to the bullpen. He could refuse an assignment to the minors if he clears waivers and choose free agency, but he's unlikely to do so because he would vacate the $3.1 million owed to him this year.

Fantasy Tip: Because Gee ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) won't land with another club and have a chance to re-enter a starting rotation, he doesn't carry any fantasy value at this time.

Mets | Dillon Gee designated for assignment

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 12:51:02 -0700

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee was designated for assignment Monday, June 15. General manager Sandy Alderson said the team will try to trade Gee but will option or outright him to Class AAA Las Vegas if there is no interest.

Fantasy Tip: Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has struggled this season and has a 0-3 record with a 5.90 ERA in seven starts. Gee could have fantasy value if he is traded to another team, so owners in deeper leagues may want to hold onto him if they have the roster space.

Mets | Dillon Gee starting Sunday

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 12:17:19 -0700

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee is listed as the starter against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has an 0-3 record with a 4.50 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP and a 5.3 K/9, so his numbers are quite underwhelming. Add his 4.30 FIP, and Gee cannot be started with confidence. However, at his cap hit, there is potential for a plus-return, and the Braves aren't an offensive juggernaut. View Gee as a risky flier for FantasyScore contests Sunday.

Mets | Bobby Parnell activated

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 09:54:25 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, June 11. In a corresponding move, P Dillon Gee was placed on the bereavement list after the death of his grandmother.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell has virtually no chance of taking the closing role from Jeurys Familia, at least not anytime soon. Expect Parnell to be eased back in, perhaps in low-leverage situations as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Because he won't have an avenue to saves in the foreseeable future, Parnell carries virtually zero fantasy value.

Mets | Steven Matz's promotion looming

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:55:27 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz, who leads the Pacific Coast League with a 1.94 ERA is expected to be called up to the majors within the next three weeks, according to a team source. Matz also has a league-leading 75 strikeouts, a 1.10 WHIP and a .207 opponent batting average in 74 1/3 innings with Class AAA Las Vegas. He has given up just four homers in the hitter-friendly league. If Matz is promoted, he will start, not pitch in relief. However, it's unclear how the Mets would open up a rotation spot for him. SPs Jon Niese and Dillon Gee are the most likely to be bumped from the rotation, and they both could be trade candidates.

Fantasy Tip: We've seen a handful of top prospects enter the big leagues and pay immediate dividends for fantasy owners this year, including fellow Mets prospect Noah Syndergaard. There's no reason this left-handed pitcher couldn't do the same, so he should be firmly on your radar at this point, especially in NL-only and keeper leagues.
