Sergio Gomez promoted to Greenville


Right-handed pitcher Sergio Gomez has been promoted to the Greenville Drive, reports Jon Boswell, Media Relations Director for the Lowell Spinners. The Drive also activated pitcher Francisco Taveras from the disabled list. To make room for Taveras and Gomez on Greenville roster, fellow right-hander Gerardo Olivares was moved to Salem.

Gomez, 19, has been excellent for the Spinners this season. In 50 2/3 innings across 10 appearances, the lanky Colombian righty has a 1.60 ERA and 1.066 WHIP. Gomez has 55 strikeouts, 14 walks, and has allowed only two home runs on the year. His stellar performance earned him recognition as a New York-Penn League All-Star. SoxProspects.com Northeast Scout Ian Cundall got a look at Gomez in July. Gomez earned a spot start for Greenville before the start of the Lowell season, allowing three runs in four innings.

Oliveras will provide needed bullpen depth for Salem after the squad has played 28 innings in the past two days.

One more countermove will be necessary in both Greenville and Salem to fit Gomez and Olivares onto the respective rosters.
