Dillon Gee went five innings in the loss to the Padres Saturday giving up four runs and five hits with eight strike outs and no walks.
Gee surprisingly got roughed up, in in his second start since returning from the DL (strained right lat), by a Padres team that won for just the third time in their past 11 games. On the positive side, Gee has now struck out 12 batters in 12 innings with just one walk so hopefully his struggles Saturday, where he allowed two home runs, had more to do with his two month layoff then anything else. Things do not get any easier for Gee as his next start on Friday is in Milwaukee against one of the biggest first-half surprise teams in the Brewers.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Doug McDermott (back) did not practice Tuesday.
It was reported on Saturday that McDermott suffered a setback on Saturday which caused him to miss a game. It looks like now, it could be more than a one game setback. He has not been a consistent part of the rotation, so his absence won't have many fantasy implications. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Dion Waiters (foot) did not practice Tuesday.
RIght now, Waiters should be considered questionable for the Thunder's Wednesday night match up against the Mavericks. Coach Brooks said his foot is feeling better but still not 100%. Andre Roberson has already been ruled out, which means Anthony Morrow could be in line for all the minutes he can handle if Waiters is unable to play. Analysis: Drew Phelps
