Mets demote Dillon Gee back to the bullpen

We learned on Saturday afternoon that the Mets were going back to the five-man rotation, but it wasn’t clear who would be getting the boot. ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin reports that Dillon Gee will be moved from the rotation to the bullpen.

Gee has made six starts this season, posting a 4.46 ERA with a 21/9 K/BB ratio over 34 1/3 innings. He was supposed to start the year in the bullpen, but Zack Wheeler underwent Tommy John surgery in late March, ending his season before it began, opening up a rotation spot for Gee. Gee suffered a groin injury in early may, knocking him out of action for a month.
