NEW YORK -- New York Mets pitcher Dillon Gee has undergone surgery to remove a blood clot from an artery in his throwing shoulder.

The team said Tuesday no timetable has been set for the right-hander's return, but he will miss his next start and probably will be put on the disabled list.

Gee complained of numb fingers on his right hand Sunday, a day after he pitched. Tests on Monday revealed the shoulder clot.

Doctors used a catheter to break up the clot. The 26-year-old pitcher will remain hospitalized for a day or two to make sure the problem is fully resolved.

Gee pitched eight innings of one-run ball in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Chicago Cubs.
