The New York Mets have been shopping Dillon Gee for most of the winter and it appears that they could finally find a match soon, as FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal writes that the Rockies, Giants, and Padres are all looking at a possible trade.
#Rockies talking to free-agent RHP Vogelsong, per @jonmorosi. Rox, #SFGiants, #Padres also looking at trade for #Mets’ Gee, per sources.

However, Joel Sherman of the New York Post says a deal won’t happen until James Shields is signed first.
#Mets expect trade SP, likely Gee, next 7-10 days But might need Shields signed 1st. #sfgiants like Gee, but have to know if getting Shields

Gee is more of a back-end starter, compiling a 3.91 ERA over 103 starts and three relief appearances in the majors. Relevant to the Rockies, he owns a 45.6 percent ground ball rate for his career. He’s under team control through 2016.
