Potential Target: Dillon Gee



    Potential Target: Dillon Gee
    Mets pitcher Dillon Gee pitches against the Oakland Athletics in the first inning of a baseball game Tuesday, Aug. 19. The Mets lost the game 2-6.

    In an ongoing series, we'll take a look at possible free-agent and trade targets for the Texas Rangers this winter.

    Target: Dillon Gee, RHP

    2014 stats: 7-8, 4.00 ERA, 94 strikeouts, 43 walks, 137 1/3 innings pitched

    Gee isn't a huge, sexy name, but he's a decent, trusted starter and is controllable for a few more seasons, making him an attractive trade target. He's a Cleburne native who played his college ball at UT-Arlington, so he's familiar with the area and would be comfortable transitioning to Arlington.

    He's been a solid No. 3 or No. 4 starter for most of his career with the Mets, which is the type of guy the Rangers are really looking for, and the Mets are looking for a shortstop. Of course, we know the Rangers have plenty to offer there.
