Gee to again take Cyclones spin

By Adam Rubin

ATLANTA -- Dillon Gee will again pitch for the Brooklyn Cyclones on Friday as his rehab assignment nears its conclusion.

Gee will pitch at Coney Island on the Fourth of July, against Aberdeen at 6 p.m.

Mets officials previously have indicated Gee is expected to be activated from the disabled list after that start. However, Terry Collins said Tuesday that there will at least be consideration to leaving Gee in the minors until after the All-Star break, to keep his idle time to a minimum.

Gee logged 55 pitches Sunday for the Cyclones in his second rehab start. He has been on the DL since May 11 with a strained right lat muscle.
