Gee refused an outright assignment to Triple-A Round Rock after clearing waivers Sunday and will become a free agent, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

After being bumped from the Rangers' rotation last week following a disastrous start June 6 against the Mets, Gee made an appearance out of the bullpen before being dropped from the 40-man roster Friday to facilitate Tyson Ross' (shoulder) activation from the 60-day disabled list. With Ross back healthy and Cole Hamels (oblique) seemingly not far off a return, Gee's chances of re-emerging with the big club weren't promising, so he'll attempt to latch on with another organization that has fewer appealing starting options at the big-league level and high minors.
