Marcum to see specialist in St. Louis

By Adam Rubin

MILWAUKEE -- Right-hander Shaun Marcum will travel to St. Louis tonight to see a specialist for the hand numbness and coldness he is experiencing in his pitching hand, the Mets announced.

Dillon Gee was treated by a St. Louis specialist for hand numbness that was caused by a clot in his pitching shoulder and a damaged artery. Gee ended up requiring surgery and missing the season's second half.
