MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo reports that starter Dillon Gee will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday. There was some thought that prospect Noah Syndergaard might lose his spot in the rotation, but DiComo adds that it “sounds like” the Mets will use a six-man rotation.

Gee went on the disabled list on May 8, five days after his most recent start. In five starts overall on the season, the right-hander has a 3.86 ERA with a 20/8 K/BB ratio in 30 1/3 innings.

Syndergaard, 22, has pitched well across two starts, giving up four runs on nine hits and five walks while striking out 11 in 11 1/3 innings.
