New York Mets SPs Bartolo Colon, Dillon Gee and Zack Wheeler will pitch against the San Diego Padres in next weekend's series, which begins Friday, July 18. Manager Terry Collins has not determined the rest of the rotation, but said SP Jacob deGrom will remain in the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Jon Niese's health will influence the backend of the rotation going forward. However, it appears Daisuke Matsuzaka will lose his spot when Niese returns. deGrom's value stabilizes, and he is emerging as a viable option in mixed leagues.

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (lat) will come off the 15-day disabled list to start Wednesday, July 9, against the Atlanta Braves, according to reports. He likely will be limited to 90-95 pitches Wednesday, as he continues to build up arm strength.

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (lat) is expected to be limited to 90 or 95 pitches Wednesday, July 9, when he returns from the disabled list to face the Atlanta Braves, according to manager Terry Collins.
Fantasy Tip: Gee is worth a look in mixed leagues, but is a risky-start Wednesday against the Braves, given his long layoff and their potentially-explosive lineup. He isn't a high-strikeout pitcher, but he is crafty enough to maintain solid ratios. He should be owned in all NL-only leagues. Gee will take Jon Niese's spot in the rotation.

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (lat) will pitch another rehab start Friday, July 4, with Single-A Brooklyn.
Fantasy Tip: Gee's return is near and he is worth a look in mixed leagues, if he is available. Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jacob deGrom are the candidates to lose their rotation spot, with Matsuzaka returning to the bullpen the likely scenario.

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (lat) is only expected to return from the disabled list for one major league start before the All-Star break. He made his second rehab start and threw 55 pitches over 2 2/3 innings Sunday, June 29. SPs Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jacob deGrom should each be assured two starts apiece before Gee returns.
Fantasy Tip: deGrom and Dice-K are the most vulnerable to lose their rotation spot to Gee following the All-Star break. We'd bet on the Mets moving Matsuzaka back to the bullpen over a demotion for deGrom.

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (lat) will pitch his second rehab start Sunday, June 29, with the Class A short season Brooklyn Cyclones.
Fantasy Tip: Gee doesn't strike out enough batters to be more than a low-end starting pitching option. However, he is crafty enough to keep his ratios in check and worth a look in mixed leagues.

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (lat) threw two scoreless innings in the Gulf Coast League on Tuesday, June 24, allowing one hit and striking out two. He's in line to participate in two more rehab starts before rejoining the major-league club, which could happen in about 18 days.
Fantasy Tip: His return would boot either Jacob deGrom or Daisuke Matsuzaka to the bullpen. You should check if Gee is available and grab him if so.
