Dillon Gee Surgery: Mets Pitcher Undergoes Successful Surgery

New York Mets pitcher Dillon Gee underwent successful surgery on his shoulder to repair a damaged artery on Friday, according to the team.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Thompson at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. The Mets said that they expect Gee to be discharged from the hospital on Tuesday or Wednesday. The team did not have a timetable on Gee's return to throwing or other baseball activities (via Mets Twitter).

Gee was first hospitalized on July 10 with finger numbness which was later found to have been caused by a blood clot in his throwing shoulder. Gee was placed on the 15-day disabled list. A catheter was used to break up the clot and it was determined at that time that surgery was need to repair an artery in Gee's shoulder.

The right-hander is is 6-7 this season with a 4.10 ERA. Relief pitcher Josh Edgin has been called up to replace Gee on the roster.
