Wade Davis to DL, reliever Gomes on way
The Rays placed RHP Wade Davis on the DL with a forearm strain and are recalling RHP Brandon Gomes from Triple-A Durham. Davis, 25, is 7-6 with a 4.25 ERA (103.2-IP, 49-ER) , pitching five innings on Wednesday in Minnesota, admitting afterward he had his "worst stuff" of the year. Since Davis wasn't scheduled to pitch during the four games in New York, the addition of Gomes gives the Rays an extra bullpen arm. He would be eligible to return July 22, so he could conceivably just miss one start.
