Gee will stay with the Rangers and be optioned to Triple-A Round Rock to begin the season, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gee had requested his release from the club Thursday, so the Rangers added him to the 40-man roster to keep him in the organization. The 30-year-old compiled 18 strikeouts and a 3.20 ERA over 19.2 innings this spring as he rehabbed from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery. As part of a new deal with the team, Gee will serve as a starter at Round Rock, but could be an viable major league option if a fifth starter is needed. Either way, the fantasy value for veteran right-hander remains rather low.

Gee formally requested his release from the Rangers on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers now have to add Gee to the 40-man roster or grant him his release, though Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Gee is looking to be released if he's not added to the Opening Day roster. The 30-year-old, who is working his way back from thoracic outlook syndrome surgery he underwent last October, posted a 3.20 ERA with 18 strikeouts across 19.2 innings this spring. He will look to catch on elsewhere if the Rangers don't add him to its 25-man.

Gee was charged with three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks over 3.1 innings against the Indians on Saturday. He struck out three batters.

EDGE Analysis

The plan was for Gee to go four innings, but he battled fatigue late in the outing and only managed to get a total of 10 outs on 58 pitches. "I started off fine, felt good and was locating a lot of pitches," Gee told the Dallas Morning News. "Felt like I ran out of gas as the pitch count went up and lost my command. Overall, I'm healthy, so that's good." Gee, who underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last fall, is competing with the likes of Mike Hauschild and Eddie Gamboa for the final spot in the rotation in the absence of Andrew Cashner (shoulder), Tyson Ross (shoulder) and Chi Chi Gonzalez (elbow).

Gee (shoulder) appeared in two games this spring, allowing one run on six hits while striking out four batters and walking one across four innings.

EDGE Analysis

Gee underwent surgery to manage his thoracic outlet syndrome back in September, but it seems like he's back to 100 percent following the lengthy recovery process. The right-hander spent last season as a swingman for the Royals, and he seems to be competing for a similar role if he manages to make the major league roster. However, an assignment to Triple-A seems more likely unless more injuries mar the Rangers pitching staff.

Gee (shoulder) agreed to a minor league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Gee is still recovering from thoracic outlook syndrome surgery, which shut him down for the season in September last year. The injury is nothing to overlook, as it has proven to be a career-ender in the past. Even before his injury, the righty struggled in his 33 appearances with Kansas City last year, logging a 4.68 ERA over 125 innings. If he is able to return to full health, the 30-year-old will offer rotation depth, likely starting the year in Triple-A.

Gee (shoulder) cleared outright waivers and has elected free agency, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

EDGE Analysis

He had thoracic outlet syndrome surgery on Oct. 11 and expects to be ready for spring training. However, even a healthy Gee lacks significant appeal, as his production has regressed greatly since he posted a 4.00 ERA over 137.1 innings for the Mets in 2014.

Gee hopes to be healthy by spring training, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gee will undergo thoracic outlet syndrome surgery to cure his blood clots in the near future. Although he wants to be ready by spring training, doctors are skeptical regarding whether or not he'll be able to do so. After pitching in 33 games, Gee will end the 2016 season with a 4.68 ERA and 1.46 WHIP.

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).
