Dillon Gee will undergo surgery Friday in St. Louis to repair artery damage in his right shoulder that could cost him the rest of the season. Gee has a clot dissolved in his shoulder Monday and during the procedure artery damage was discovered.
Dr. Robert Thompson at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis will perform the surgery.
Gee is expected to not resume throwing for eight weeks, which would effectively end his season.
The Mets will bring up left-handed reliever Josh Edgin to take Gee’s spot on the roster, which Miguel Batista expected to take his spot in the rotation.
At this time, the Mets have no plans to bring up prospects Matt Harvey or Zach Wheeler.
ON DECK: First half disappointments.
