Mets’ Gee Has Surgery To Remove Clot In Shoulder

NEW YORK (AP) _ New York Mets pitcher Dillon Gee has undergone
surgery to remove a blood clot from an artery in his throwing

The team said Tuesday no timetable has been set for the
right-hander’s return, but he will miss his next start and probably
will be put on the disabled list.

Gee complained of numb fingers on his right hand Sunday, a day
after he pitched. Tests on Monday revealed the shoulder clot.

Doctors used a catheter to break up the clot. The 26-year-old
pitcher will remain hospitalized for a day or two to make sure the
problem is fully resolved.

Gee pitched eight innings of one-run ball in Saturday’s 3-1 win
over the Chicago Cubs.
