Rays to call up Brandon Gomes to join bullpen

The Rays will call up Brandon Gomes to join their bullpen for Tuesday's game.

Gomes, 26, has been impressive at Triple-A Durham, going 6-for-6 in save situations and posting a 1.35 ERA in 11 appearances.

The 5-11 righthander was acquired from San Diego in Jason Bartlett trade, as were Cesar Ramos and Adam Russell, and all three will be in the bullpen on Tuesday.

Gomes essentially takes the place of LHP Jake McGee, who was sent down Saturday, as the Rays called up Alex Cobb to make Sunday's start then sent him back down.
