UPDATES & NEWS
Dillon Gee allowed two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six batters over 5.2 innings in Monday's loss to the Mets.
Gee settled for a no-decision on Monday afternoon, after his bullpen couldn't hold onto a one-run lead late in the game. He is now 4-4 with a 3.73 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through 13 starts while owning a rather sub-par 59:24 K:BB rate over 82.0 innings. His biggest problem this season has been with the long ball, having now allowed 1 home runs up to this point, including five homers over his last four starts, so until he finds away to keep the ball in the park he remains a risky investment moving forward. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Phillies this weekend. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
