Mets, Gee swap figures; settlement likely

By Adam Rubin

Dillon Gee filed for a salary of $4.05 million and the Mets countered at $3.2 million, a source told ESPNNewYork.com.

An insider believes there will be a settlement between the sides in the "near future" somewhere around the midpoint of $3.625 million.

If Gee were to go to a hearing with the Mets next month, the arbitrator would choose one of the submitted figures -- Gee's or the club's -- not a number in between.
