Dillon Gee Hospitalized: Blood Clot In Shoulder Sends New York Mets' Pitcher To 15-Day DL

New York Mets starting pitcher Dillon Gee was hospitalized Monday with a blood clot in the artery of his right (pitching) shoulder, according to a report from Brad Como of SNY.

Como also reports that Gee has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. He had been scheduled to make his next start Friday against the Atlanta Braves, but -- according to manager Terry Collins -- experienced numbness in his fingers and decided on a trip to the hospital.

Gee underwent a procedure to break up the clot, but still hasn't been released from the hospital.
