Cleveland Indians Pitcher Jeanmar Gomez Injures Hip

Cleveland Indians pitcher Jeanmar Gomez was injured turning a double play in the fourth inning of the Indians Cactus League game against the Cincinnati Red Friday and had to leave the game, according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.

Gomez has been pitching his way into the Indians rotation this spring, posting a 1.69 ERA in 16 innings prior to Friday. On Thursday, David Huff, also competing for the fifth spot in the rotation, strained his right hamstring, effectively taking him out of the competition. Derek Lowe also injured himself in a split-squad game on Thursday, but manager Manny Acta is no concerned by it.

Kevin Slowey, also competing for the final spot in the rotation, will start on Saturday. If Gomez's injury is serious, he may back into the rotation.
