Gamboa was reassigned to minor league camp Tuesday. The move doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the 31-year-old has yet to appear in a major league game in his career. Gamboa will likely begin the season at Triple-A and will provide organizational pitching depth.
Gamboa signed a minor league contract with the Rays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Gamboa spent his first full season at the Triple-A level with the Orioles organization last season, logging a 8-11 record with a 4.61 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 19 starts. The knuckleballer hasn't appeared in the majors yet, and is running out of time to make his way up since he's already 30 years old. He'll likely serve as a depth option since there are plenty of younger options already slated for a rotation spot with Tampa Bay.
The Orioles made a number of roster adjustments on Tuesday, according to the Baltimore Sun. Baltimore placed catcher Steve Clevenger on the paternity list, selected the contract of Paul Janish from Triple-A and designated Eddie Gamboa for assignment.
The Orioles reinstated outfielder David Lough (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list. To clear a roster spot, reliever Eddie Gamboa was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.
The Orioles have officially placed pitcher Wesley Wright on the 15-day disabled list with a left trapezius strain and recalled pitcher Eddie Gamboa from Triple-A Norfolk, the team announced Saturday. Wright was receiving treatment for the injury, but manager Buck Showalter was expecting this to be the result after consulting with team doctors. Wright has thrown just 1 2/3 innings so far in 2014 with a 5.40 ERA.
