With the Mets running off 4 straight wins to move to 21-29, can some changes finally be coming? Tonight Dillon Gee and his 2-6 record with a 6.34 ERA take the mound at Yankee Stadium. Gee has been a very good 5 inning pitcher usually with a bad inning mixed in and then runs out of gas in the 6th inning. From all indications Zack Wheeler is basically on a plane to the big leagues and it is coming down to Gee and Hefner on who will lose their spot in the rotation. Right now Hefner is 1-5 with a 4.74 ERA. If you take a look over their numbers Hefner has far better numbers. Gee has shown he would be a great middle relief pitcher. This Mets management group has been a very loyal group and hopefully their loyalty to Gee will not force them to make a move that doesn’t make sense. It is clear that Gee needs to leave the rotation and Hefner needs to stay.
