Dillon Gee gets “clean bill of health” after angiogram

Dillon Gee won’t be pitching again this season, but Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets right-hander got “a clean bill of health” after undergoing an angiogram in St. Louis over the weekend.

Gee is six weeks removed from surgery to repair a damaged artery in his shoulder that was 96 percent blocked and told Rubin that the latest checkup “couldn’t have gone better.”

As of now he has no limitations in terms of throwing and working out, so barring a setback Gee is expected to be fully recovered and ready for spring training. And considering he’s pitched with numbness in his fingers since 2010 perhaps Gee will even return feeling stronger.

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier entered Tuesday night’s action having hit safely in all 17 games this season and in 24 games consecutively dating back to last season. Sadly for him and for the Twins, that streak ended with an 0-for-4 performance against the Yankees.

Dozier grounded out in the first inning, flied out in the third, grounded out in the sixth, and grounded out again in the eighth.

Despite his streak ending, Dozier still has good numbers on the year. He’s hitting .291/.356/.494 with four home runs, 10 RBI, and 15 runs scored in 87 plate appearances.
