Another pitching move: Cobb down, Gomes up



The Rays shuffled their bullpen again, sending down RHP Alex Cobb and bringing up RHP Brandon Gomes.

Cobb came up to be the long man but with Wade Davis set to pitch again after this three-inning outing on Friday, the Rays felt comfortable with Gomes, who will provide middle relief work.

Gomes missed out on the final spot in the pen at the end of the spring because the Rays felt he needed  a little more time to recover from off-season back surgery. In six innings over five games for Durham, Gomes allowed no runs and only two hits while striking out eight.
