It is not just the young kids that are being evaluated with an eye toward to 2014 down the stretch this season. After missing the second half of last season and starting slow in 2013 Dillon Gee is putting together his best season in the majors.


He picked up his team-leading 11th win Wednesday as the Mets beat the Braves 5-2 at Turner Field.

Lucas Duda and Andrew Brown homered Gee and Juan Lagares each singled in runs. LaTroy Hawkins picked up his seventh save after Vic Black gave up a home run to Freddie Freeman in the eighth.

Gee however was dominant once again Wednesday.
He held the Braves to one run on four hits. He walked one and struck out five. Gee threw 102 pitches 78 for strikes.

The Mets avoided the sweep and won for the first time in four games. The Braves lost for just the 20th time at Turner Field this season.
Since May 30 when he was pitching to stay in the rotation Gee has gone 9-3 with a 2.22 ERA.

In the eyes of his manager Gee has proven himself.
