If Mejia (another injury), Montero (no need to rush) or Syndergaard (likely a '15 guy) win a spot, then you can trade him at basically the same value. Or you keep as a fifth starter or the long guy in the pen.

It's Sydergaard or Montero who will be the (one of) major piece(s) for an OF bat, not Gee.
I think you're underselling Gee a bit. He's got a 2.27 ERA in his last 15 starts. He doesn't have the ceiling of an ace, but he might be considered a legitimate number three starter.
