Dillon Gee (shoulder) confirmed it’s “unrealistic” to expect him to return this season.
“Probably not,” Gee said. “It’s still three more weeks until the six-week checkup to clear me to throw, hopefully. To come back for a game, I’d have to be ready in two to three weeks, after being out at that point it would be almost two months. I think it would be unrealistic.” Gee underwent surgery on July 13 to repair an artery in his pitching shoulder that had been 96 percent blocked. He expects to be 100 percent for spring training next year.
