Former Mets pitcher Dillon Gee is in spring training with the Kansas City Royals, hoping to win a spot in the team’s rotation or as a swingman in the bullpen.
“It was bittersweet, obviously,” Gee told the Kansas City Star’s Rustin Dodd about his departure from the Mets. “I had been there going on five years in the big leagues, and it’s like: ‘I was there during the lean times. I wanted to be there when they were celebrating at the end.’ ”
“It wasn’t the best of circumstances, but things unfolded the way they unfolded. They went to the World Series, so obviously they pulled the right strings, I guess.”
