Gee, 31, was signed by the Twins as a minor league free agent June 22 after being designated by the Texas Rangers June 16 and elected free agency June 19. The right-hander made four appearances (1 start) for the Rangers this season posting a 4.15 ERA (13.0 IP, 6 ER) with six walks and 10 strikeouts. Gee has yet to make an appearance for the Twins this season.
