Twins sign Dillon Gee to minor-league deal

MLB: New York Mets at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Twins have agreed tot a minor-league deal with righty Dillon Gee, a major-league source confirms to SB Nation. Gee is expected to begin as a starter at Triple-A Rochester.

Darren Wolfson of KSTP in Minnesota first reported talks between the sides.

Gee, 31, elected free agency last week after being designated for assignment by Texas. After signing a minor-league deal with the Rangers over the winter, he surrendered six earned runs on 17 hits in 13 major-league innings for the club, making one start and three relief appearances.

Gee provides rotation depth for a club that currently has Phil Hughes and Hector Santiago on the disabled list, adding an option alongside Ervin Santana, Jose Berrios, Nik Turley, Adalberto Mejia and Kyle Gibson in the rotation. Gee is a veteran of eight major-league seasons with the Mets (2010-15), Royals (2016) and Rangers (2017). He owns a career 48-46 record and 4.13 ERA in that span.
