Indians 'Hits': Jeanmar Gomez Will Not Pitch In AAA All-Star Game; Cleveland Next?

Jeanmar Gomez, who has put up impressive numbers at Columbus for the Clippers, will not pitch in Wednesday's AAA All-Star game, and is likely headed for Cleveland to pitch either on Sunday against the Orioles or on Monday in one of the games of a doubleheader in Minnesota against the Twins.

Gomez is 9-3 at AAA with a fine 2.40 ERA in 14 starts. He was 0-1 with the Tribe earlier this season with a 4.91 ERA in four trips to the mound.

If Gomez were to start on Sunday in Baltimore, it would signal his replacing Mitch Talbot in the rotation. But we won't get ahead of ourselves, and will update this speculation with facts when those facts become available.
