Gee (3-4) allowed five runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out one over five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Gee gave up a pair of runs in both the fourth and sixth innings, and he left the contest with a 5-0 deficit. He's now allowed 30 baserunners in 16.1 innings of work over four July outings, and his ERA is at a season-high 4.54. He'll make his next start Sunday at the Rangers.

Gee has been confirmed as the starter for Tuesday's game against the Angels, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Ned Yost had been undecided about Tuesday's starter, but he confirmed Monday afternoon that it will, indeed, be Gee. That means the Royals will pivot away from Brian Flynn, who was touched up for three earned runs in just 2.1 innings his last time out. Gee pitched 5.1 innings of relief in that contest, so the belief is that he'll be stretched out enough to be an effective option.

Manager Ned Yost is yet to decide on a starter for Tuesday's game against the Angels, but Gee may be the primary option, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Royals appear to be leaning away from Brian Flynn, who was tagged for three earned runs in just 2.1 innings in his last start Tuesday against the Indians. In that game, Gee came on in relief and tossed 5.1 innings, striking out five and allowing three earned runs on six hits. Considering he's already stretched out, Gee seems like the most practical option Tuesday, though an official announcement may not come for another day or two.

Gee lasted just 3.2 innings in Sunday's start versus the Mariners, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk. He suffered his third loss of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Gee had worked primarily as a reliever this season, and although he was selected to take the struggling Chris Young's place in the rotation, he was unable to produce results. Gee has been more effective in relief this season, with an ERA of 2.90 out of the bullpen, and he will likely return to that role after the All-Star break.

Gee, who has been working in long relief for the Royals since being recalled June 11, is a candidate to replace Chris Young in the rotation for Sunday's start against Seattle, the Kansas City reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Royals have not revealed their plans for Sunday, but Young's ongoing struggles have left the team in a difficult spot, as the organizational depth reinforcements-- Kris Medlen and Mike Minor -- are working back from injury. An official announcement from manager Ned Yost will likely come down ahead of the weekend series with Seattle, but Gee has been a much better fit as a reliever (2.91 ERA, .765 OPS against) than he was during his four-start run as a starter (6.05 ERA, .985 OPS against) for the Royals earlier this season.

Gee was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Injuries to the Royals' rotation ultimately forced Gee to fill in as a spot starter over the last few weeks. He managed to rack up 26 strikeouts in 24.2 innings over five starts, but he also had an earned run average of 5.11 in that stretch. His next turn in the rotation, which was scheduled for Sunday, will now likely be taken by Chris Young (forearm) once he's activated off the DL.

Gee (2-2) pitched five innings, allowing four runs on nine hits while walking one and striking out seven in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

It hasn't always been pretty for the righty, who now has five starts under his belt, but Gee is managing to put his team (and himself) in a position to win ballgames. His seven strikeouts on Tuesday was a season high, and he has a respectable 26:7 K:BB since joining the starting rotation. He'll go at it again in Cleveland on Sunday.

Gee (1-2) allowed six runs (five earned) on 10 hits, struck out six and walked one over just four innings in a loss to the Twins Wednesday afternoon.

EDGE Analysis

Making his third start of the year, Gee really struggled, giving up two home runs to the first two batters of the game. He worked into the fifth, but yielded another bomb on the last pitch he threw and didn't record an out in the frame. The Twins had multiple base runners against Gee in four of the five innings he worked. He will try and correct these mistakes before his next scheduled start Monday against the Rays.

Gee (1-1) surrendered four hits, an earned run and a walk over five innings in Friday's 4-1 victory over the White Sox. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Faced with the tough prospect of outdueling White Sox stalwart Jose Quintana, the 30-year-old came through with an outstanding effort over 92 pitches. Gee put 62 of those offerings in the strike zone, while also securing first-pitch strikes on 15 of the 22 batters he faced. His only hiccup was a second-inning RBI single he surrendered to Austin Jackson, marking the second time in his three starts that Gee has only surrendered an earned run.

Gee (0-1) lost his first start of 2016, allowing three runs on six hits over 5.1 innings against the Braves. He also struck out five and walked three.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old has appeared in seven other games as a reliever although he did pitch 5.1 in his last appearance after Chris Young was ineffective against the Yankees. With the help of a double play and caught stealing, Gee was able to hold the Braves off the scoreboard through five innings, but he allowed five of the six batters he faced in the sixth to reach base. The only out he recorded in that frame was on a sacrifice bunt. Gee, who is replacing the injured Young in the rotation, is scheduled to make his next start Friday against the White Sox.
