ST. LOUIS -- Dillon Gee is due to be at Marlins Park on Thursday for a bullpen session with Mets staff before the team's series opener against the Miami Marlins.

Gee threw off a mound on Monday in Port St. Lucie, Fla., for the first time since landing on the disabled list on May 11 with a strained right lat muscle.

That mound session Thursday should be the final step before Gee is cleared to face batters.

Meanwhile, Juan Lagares faced John Lannan in batting practice on Monday in Port St. Lucie. That signaled to Terry Collins that Lagares is nearing the beginning of a rehab assignment.

"If he's taking live BP, he's getting close," Collins said.

Lagares has been on the DL since June 2 with a strained intercostal muscle on his right side.
