• Right-hander Dillon Gee threw two scoreless innings Tuesday for the Rookie-level Gulf Coast Mets in his first Minor League rehab appearance since straining his right lat muscle in May. Gee allowed one hit, did not issue a walk and struck out two. He is tentatively scheduled to come off the disabled list in early July.
• First-base coach Tom Goodwin left the team Tuesday to deal with a personal family matter. Bench coach Bob Geren coached first in the Mets' series opener against the A's, with Mets senior advisor Guy Conti serving as bench coach.
