      Cubs' Brandon Gomes: Receives invite to major league spring training

      Gomes has received an invitation to the Cubs' spring training. Gomes posted a 4.27 ERA in 63 appearances for Tampa Bay in 2015 primarily as a middle reliever in low-pressure situations. The 31-year-old will have the opportunity to make an impression on the Cubs' organization in spring training, but based on his career numbers and trends it is unlikely that he makes the roster out of camp.

      Cubs' Brandon Gomes: Signs with Cubs

      Gomes agreed to a minor league deal with the Cubs on Wednesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Gomes had previously been in Tampa Bay, where he worked to a 4.27 ERA with a 44:15 K:BB ratio in 59 innings last season. He'll serve as bullpen depth within the organization but it doesn't appear as though he'll start the year in the majors.

      Rays' Brandon Gomes: Outrighted to Triple-A

      Gomes was outrighted to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday. The 31-year-old made 62 appearances for Tampa Bay last season, posting a 1.19 WHIP and a swinging-strike rate over 11 percent, but it was not enough to maintain his spot at last week's Rule 5 roster deadline. Gomes could still attend spring training as a non-roster invitee, but he figures to have to bide his time at Durham to start the year.

      Rays' Brandon Gomes: Designated for assignment

      Gomes was designated for assignment on Friday, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports. The Rays needed to clear space on the 40-man roster, so Gomes may not have much of a future with the big league club in Tampa Bay. Look for the veteran reliever to continue to bounce back and forth between the minors and majors, pitching primarily in low-leverage situations.

      Rays pitcher Brandon Gomes earns first save of season Tuesday

      Rays pitcher Brandon Gomes allowed one hit over a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Yankees en route to his first save of the season. Brad Boxberger had pitched on back-to-back days and three of the last four days prior to Tuesday's game, so he was likely unavailable. Boxberger has been pretty bad down the stretch, posting a 4.79 ERA over the second half, so it would not be surprising if the Rays opted for a closer-by-committee approach over the final weeks of the season, meaning Gomes could be called upon again.

      Rays' Drew Smyly pitches 6 strong, Brandon Gomes gets win

      Rays pitcher Drew Smyly piched six innings in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Yankees in 13 innings. Smyly picked up a no-decision in his start. Smyly gave up two earned runs during his time in the game. Both were allowed on solo home runs. He struck out 10 batters and walked only one. Smyly now holds an ERA of 3.38 for the season. His next start is projected for May 5 against the Red Sox. Picking up the win for the Rays was Brandon Gomes, who entered the game in the bottom of the 12th inning with the game tied at 2-2. He gave up a hit and plunked a batter but got out of the inning without allowing a run.

      Rays may use Brandon Gomes as multi-inning reliever

      Rays pitcher Brandon Gomes, who has primarly worked in short relief, could be used in a multi-inning role this season, reports. "We want to get him lengthened out a little bit, not a ton," manager Kevin Cash said. "But we want to get him to where he's versatile enough to pitch in those two-, three-inning roles." Gomes has yet to allow a run in 6 1/3 innings this spring while racking up 11 strikeouts and walking none. "I'm not doing anything different than what I did the last month, month and a half of last season," Gomes said. "Probably a little bit easier to get consistent, and just understanding how best to use my three pitches when trying to get guys out." Gomes tossed 34 innings in 29 appearances last season, posting a 3.71 ERA and 24:11 K:BB ratio,
