New York Mets pitcher Dillon Gee will remain hospitalized for the next day or two after a blood clot was found in an artery in his right shoulder.

Manager Terry Collins, reached in Kansas City, said Gee had experienced numbness in his fingers. After extensive testing Monday, Gee was found to have a clot which doctors at New York’s Presbyterian Hospital used a catheter to break up.

Gee, 26, will remain hospitalized to ensure the clot is fully resolved.

The team announced Gee, who was scheduled to start Friday at Atlanta, will be placed on the disabled list and his return to baseball activitiy is undetermined.

Gee pitched well in his final start before the All-Star break Saturday, limiting the Chicago Cubs to one run over eight innings in a 3-1 win. The right-hander is 6-7 with a 4.10 ERA in 17 starts.

Gee has been a mainstay in the rotation for the Mets (46-40), who were a bit of a surprise in the season’s first half. They are in third place in the NL East, 4½ games behind the division-leading Washington Nationals.
