NEW YORK -- Dillon Gee threw six more stressful innings on Monday evening, upping his career-high total to 174 1/3 -- one season after a major shoulder injury limited him to 48 1/3 innings at Triple-A Buffalo.
Regardless, the Mets have no immediate plans to remove him from the rotation. And so the rookie right-hander will continue to start every five days until the Mets tell him otherwise.
"You have to weigh the experience that you get him versus the health, if you're jeopardizing the health," said manager Jerry Manuel, who plans to meet with members of his staff this week to discuss the plan for Gee. "That has to be a part of the conversation as well."
