Dillon Gee has been diagnosed with a blood clot in his right shoulder and will be placed on the disabled list, according to Brad Como of SNY.
Manager Terry Collins, reached in Kansas City, said Gee experienced numbness in his fingers and was due to undergo an angiogram.
“They aren’t sure what it is yet,” Collins said.
A teammate said the issue was believed to be blood-related in Gee’s shoulder. Another member of the organization said Gee was admitted to the hospital Monday and underwent an MRI.
Hopefully, this is a minor thing. Tom Glavine had a similar scare like this in 2006 when he was diagnosed with a blood clot in his throwing shoulder. It was only a minor blood clot and Glavine was able to return in about two weeks.
Gee, 6-7 this season with a 4.10 ERA this season, is scheduled to make a start on Friday against the Braves, but that now seems unlikely.
