Dillon Gee discharged from hospital, may need surgery

5 Comments

Dillon Gee will be discharged today after being hospitalized for finger numbness that stemmed from a blood clot in his shoulder, but according to a statement released by the Mets he may still require surgery.

Dillon was scheduled to start the second-half opener Friday, but instead he’s been placed on the disabled list and is out indefinitely.

Doctors used a catheter to break up the blood clot, but Gee may need further procedures to avoid a re-occurrence or additional complications.

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman had to exit Wednesday night’s game against the Phillies after he was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. Charlie Culberson pinch-ran for him and stayed in the game to play first base.

You may recall that Freeman’s left wrist is the one that was fractured by an Aaron Loup pitch last year. Understandably, there’s some concern here. The Braves should provide an update later tonight or on Thursday.

Freeman went 1-for-3 in Wednesday’s game before exiting. On the season, he’s batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
