Gee, that was awful.
“I don’t want to think about it,” Dillon Gee said Thursday when asked to assess his performance in the Mets’ 9-1 exhibition loss to the Tigers.
The right-hander allowed six earned runs on three hits, four walks, two hit batters and three wild pitches over two innings for the worst performance by a Mets starting pitcher this spring.
Gee normally would have followed his outing by throwing in the bullpen to get in extra pitches, but said he was so disgusted he skipped the session.
“Some days I don’t know what happens — I literally cannot throw the baseball anywhere I want to go,” Gee said. “It happens, but I’ll keep working and we’ll figure it out.”
Manager Terry Collins said there is no physical issue with Gee, who missed the second half of last season after a blood clot was found in his pitching shoulder.
“That’s very uncharacteristic, what you saw today,” Collins said. “I just asked [pitching coach] Dan [Warthen] if he was working on something in particular and he just said he was having a real tough time finding his release point, so it’s something that is easily fixed.
“I’ve watched this guy pitch for four years and never seen that before so I’m not too concerned about it.”
Oh, Gee! Dillon gets pounded
