SAN FRANCISCO -- Dillon Gee resumed throwing Wednesday on flat ground, but it still will be a while before he returns to the New York Mets rotation.

Gee had refrained from throwing since experiencing discomfort in his strained right lat muscle on May 25 while attempting to toss a baseball.

He has not pitched in a game since May 10, when he faced the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field.

Because Gee will ultimately have spent about a full month away from a mound, the right-hander will probably need at least two minor league rehab appearances. And he's not even back on a mound yet.

Daisuke Matsuzaka is temporarily holding Gee's rotation spot.
Adam Rubin has covered the Mets since 2003. He's a graduate of Mepham High School on Long Island and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He joined ESPNNewYork after spending 10 years at the New York Daily News.
