NEW YORK (AP) - Mets pitcher Dillon Gee has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained back muscle.
Jacob deGrom will take Gee's spot in the rotation Thursday night, meaning two straight Mets starters were scheduled to make their major league debuts in the Subway Series against the New York Yankees. Rafael Montero was set to pitch Wednesday night at Citi Field after he was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Gee has been the Mets' most consistent and durable starter for about a calendar year. The right-hander is 3-1 with a 2.73 ERA in eight starts this season. He went on the DL retroactive to May 11 and hopes to miss only two turns in the rotation with his strained right lat.
In other news, catcher Travis d'Arnaud was having concussion tests after he was hit in the head by Alfonso Soriano's backswing Tuesday night.
