Gee has been shut down for the year after being hospitalized because of blood clots in his lungs and shoulder, the Kansas City Star's Rustin Dodd reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is the kind of medical issue that can be a career ender, so this is extremely serious. He was experiencing shortness of breath after Sunday's game and needed to be hospitalized until Tuesday.

Gee (6-8) allowed five runs on five hits and four walks with a strikeout over 3.1 innings in a loss Monday to the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Gee finally paid for his pitch to contact ways after allowing three runs or fewer in each of his previous four starts. Gee managed just two swinging strikes and one strikeout over 74 pitches. He was tagged for a three-run home run and when he tried to nibble, the Athletics weren't biting. Gee's ERA is up to 4.60 and he has struck out just 87 batters in 115.1 innings (6.8 K/9).

Gee allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Gee pitched to contact -- he induced just three swinging strikes -- and that approach allowed him to get through six innings. However, it also cost him, as he surrendered three home runs, all solo shots. Gee didn't walk a single batter, a key factor in his ability to keep the floodgates from bursting. He has walked more than two batters just once in 29 appearances (13 starts).

Gee pitched an inning in relief in Friday's game against the Tigers and will have his next start pushed back to Tuesday, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gee had been lined up to start Sunday, but manager Ned Yost opted to use him out of the bullpen Friday and give Edinson Volquez the start in Sunday's game. Gee's next outing will come against the Twins, who have tagged him for 11 earned runs in 18.1 innings (5.40 ERA) over four matchups this season.

Gee (6-7) allowed one run on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts over six innings in a win Monday over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

This is the ideal Gee start -- he pitched to contact, avoided walks, and kept the ball in the yard. Gee induced 11 flyouts, using spacious Kauffman Stadium to his advantage. He induced just two swinging strikeouts in the process, though, and his inability to miss bats makes him vulnerable to home runs and big innings and is the main reason he owns a mediocre 4.37 ERA.

Gee (5-7) pitched 5.1 innings of three-run ball against the Marlins on Wednesday, yielding five hits and striking out three and receiving the loss.

EDGE Analysis

Gee was cruising through five innings Wednesday, allowing just one hit and no runs entering the sixth, when the trouble began. After retiring the first batter, Gee allowed four consecutive singles that plated two runs before he was removed after just 76 pitches, 50 of them for strikes. Marcell Ozuna then hit a sacrifice fly to tag Gee with his third earned run of the night. It was somewhat of an unfortunately loss for Gee, who pitched well and did not surrender a single extra-base hit while his team was shutout by fireballer Jose Fernandez. Gee now has a 4.55 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP.

Gee (5-6) struck out seven Twins over seven innings while allowing just one run on five hits and a walk in Thursday's 8-1 win.

EDGE Analysis

Just last week, Gee saw these same Twins in Minnesota and was blasted for five runs on 11 hits (three of them homers), so this was an impressive turnaround. That said, Gee has been simply atrocious when given opportunities to start this year -- in 52.1 innings, he's given up a brutal 33 earned runs for a 5.68 ERA. He's generally been much more effective out of the bullpen (3.05 ERA), but will remain in the rotation for now, with his next start coming Wednesday against the Marlins.

Gee will start Saturday against the Twins, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gee has struggled as a starter this season, having gone 2-5 with a 6.08 ERA over eight outings. Saturday's matchup isn't favorable for Gee, as he's allowed six runs (including three home runs) over just six innings against the Twins in 2016.

Gee will be skipped next time through the Royals' rotation, according to Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio.

EDGE Analysis

Gee tossed six innings in each of his last two starts, but the Royals have an off day Monday, and the team decided to take advantage of that and keep the rest of their starters on normal rest. The Royals will next need a fifth starter August 13, and Gee could still fill that spot if the team believes Mike Minor (shoulder) is not yet ready to join the big league rotation.

Gee (3-5) pitched six innings, allowing three runs, four hits and four walks while striking out two Blue Jays in Friday's no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

Gee hadn't lasted six innings in any of his first six starts, but his second straight six-inning outing Friday earned the righty his first quality start since April of last season. Although taming the Blue Jays is impressive, Gee is still winless since May 31 and remains best suited for deep leagues. The 30-year-old's next start is Thursday against a White Sox team that he beat back on May 20 for his first win of the season.
