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.

ORIGINAL POST:

Dillon Gee has been hospitalized with numbness in his fingers, according to ESPN New York:

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.
