The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has recalled right-handed pitcher Jeanmar Gomez from Triple-A Columbus. To clear room on the 25-man roster for Gomez the Indians designated outfielder Shelley Duncan for assignment.
Gomez, 24, has split the season between Cleveland and Columbus after opening the season in the starting rotation for the Indians. He was with the parent club thru June 23rd, going 4-7 with 5.18 ERA in 14 games/13 starts (73.0IP, 75H, 42ER, 26BB, 35K, .265AVG) before being assigned to Columbus. With the Clippers he has gone 6-5 with a 4.41 ERA in 11 starts (69.1IP, 75H, 34ER, 17BB, 54K, .273AVG).
Duncan has spent the entire season to date with Cleveland, hitting .203 (47-232) with 10 doubles, 11 HR & 31 RBI in 81 games. He was a part of the revolving door in left field; his designation means one fewer right-handed bat in the Indians bereft line-up.
