Gee was reinstated from the paternity list Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gee will return to the club Thursday after being placed on the paternity list earlier in the week. The Royals optioned Miguel Almonte to Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move to add Gee back to the active roster. In two relief appearances this season, Gee has allowed one run on four hits across 5.0 innings of work.

Gee was placed on the paternity list Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gee's daughter was born Monday, so he'll be away from the team for a few days to tend to matters on the home front. To take his place on the roster, right-hander Miguel Almonte was recalled from Triple-A Omaha.

Gee is likely to make the Opening Day roster as a bullpen swingman if he is not needed in the rotation, the Kansas City Star reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gee and Chien-Ming Wang are said to have a shot at the starting rotation, but that seems doubtful with Chris Young and Kris Medlen in the lead for the final two rotation spots. It looks like Gee will make the team as a swingman in the bullpen who could an occasional spot start.

Gee had his contract selected and was placed on the Royals' 40-man roster Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kansas City placed Gee on the 40-man roster to block his opt out attempt. The 29-year-old had a rough year in 2015, posting a 5.90 ERA over 39.7 innings pitched, and with the Royals having deep and talented pitching, it will be difficult for Gee to see many innings at the moment.

Gee cleared waivers and has been sent outright to Triple-A Las Vegas, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.

Gee's $5.3 million salary prevented any team from putting in a claim, and he'll now look to work out his struggles in the minors. If he isn't promoted back to the Mets later this season, he can declare free agency at the end of the campaign.

Gee has been placed on outright waivers for the purpose of sending him to Triple-A Las Vegas after trade discussions fell apart, ESPN New York reports.

If Gee is not claimed, he will clear waivers at 1 p.m. ET Tuesday. As Gee has more than three years of major league service, he could refuse an assignment to Las Vegas if he clears waivers and declare free agency. However, he is unlikely to do so because he would lose the remaining $3.1 million on his salary still owed to him this season. If Gee does go to Las Vegas and is not promoted later in the season, he can declare free agency when the season ends.

Gee was designated for assignment by the Mets on Monday.

Gee has struggled significantly this season, posting an ERA of 5.90 in 39.2 innings with a 25:11 K:BB ratio and a 1.66 WHIP. He should have no trouble catching on with another team in the coming days as he can still provide back of the rotation help for a number of teams.

Gee was bombed Sunday, allowing eight runs on 11 hits and a walk with four strikeouts in just 3.2 innings against Atlanta.

Some of the arguments for Gee's struggles have centered on his lack of routine given his uncertain role and dealing with a death in the family. Both are clearly true, but he has not been good most of the season and his hold on the sixth starter spot and maybe even a role in general is somewhat tenuous at best.

Gee has been activated from the bereavement list and will start Sunday's game against the Braves.

Gee had been attending to a death in the family, but will now turn his attention to getting his first victory of the season against Mike Foltnewicz and the Atlanta Braves. The right-hander has allowed eight runs (five earned) over 5.2 innings since being activated from a recent DL stint, but owns a lifetime 3.09 ERA against Sunday's opponent.

Gee (personal) is listed as the starter for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

Gee, who was placed on the bereavement list Thursday following the death of his grandmother, will slot into the rotation Sunday, which pushes Noah Syndergaard's start to Monday against Toronto. Matt Harvey is then expected to take the hill Tuesday for the second game of the team's four-game set against the Blue Jays.
