New York Mets pitcher Dillon Gee elects free agency

Wednesday October 7th, 2015

Pitcher Dillon Gee has officially ended his time with the New York Mets and has elected to become a free agent, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN.

The righthander made the decision to leave the organization at the conclusion of the regular season last Sunday. After being outrighted to Triple A earlier this year, Gee had the right to enter free agency because he had more than three years of MLB service time and the Mets did not call him back to the majors.

Gee had a rocky start to the season with the Mets, earning a 5.90 ERA in eight appearances before he was placed on the disabled list with a groin injury. He was then designated for assignment on June 15.

The Mets selected Gee in the 21st round of the 2007 MLB draft. In six seasons in New York, Gee has a record of 40–37 and a 4.03 ERA in 114 appearances, 110 of which were starts.
