Mets to give Gee an extra day before next start
NEW YORK -- Dillon Gee will get an extra day of rest before his next scheduled start, according to manager Terry Collins.

Gee, who has been unable to reach 100 pitches only twice in 12 starts this season, has consistently pitched on four days' rest since his May 15 start against Milwaukee.

Gee pitched seven innings Saturday night against the Yankees, but acknowledged a "dead" feeling in his arm following the game. He confirmed that there was no relation to injury, and that the sensation was nothing to worry about.

Collins followed up on Gee's comments Sunday morning, and said the decision to give the right-hander an extra day of rest stemmed from Gee showing normal signs of fatigue.
