Indians Recall Jeanmar Gomez, Designate Shelley Duncan for Assigment

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.

  • About time Tribe. Should have been done with Duncan months ago.

    All of the players who were counted on when the season started slowly dumped one by one. Frankly if this continues I’m not going to anymore games! LoL

    maybe next year someone will finally give Duncan the fair shot so many believe he never gets. Onward to the next galaxy, Love Machine.

    That’s 6 members of the 25 man that’s been released in the last month. Those 6 were part of the team this ownership delusionaly announced was a playoff bound team in July. Over 20% of this team was released with no other team putting in a claim. And we still have Kotchman, Lillibridge, Seddon, and Hannahan on the team. Look at every team in the majors and ask yourself if there’s 6 players on that team that couldnt help the Indians. That’s all you need to know about this organization and ownership.

  • He got that shot this year – didn’t work. Moving on…
