Mets “aggressively shopping” Dillon Gee

15 Comments

Last week reports had the Mets active looking to deal Bartolo Colon, Dillon Gee, and/or Jon Niese, but now Adam Rubin of ESPN New York says they’re “aggressively shopping” Gee and are looking to deal him “more than the other starters.”

Which makes some sense, because Colon likely won’t bring back much in return and may require the Mets eating some salary, and Niese is under team control through 2018.

Gee, meanwhile, is under team control for two more seasons and projected to earn around $5 million for 2015 via arbitration. They may be able to actually get something decent in return for him and save some money to spend elsewhere.
