The Rockies placed Gomber (forearm) on the 10-day injured list Sunday.
Colorado is still classifying the injury that forced Gomber out of Saturday's game against the Brewers as right forearm tightness, but it's possible he'll be sent in for an MRI as the Rockies look to assess whether he's dealing with a strain. In any case, Gomber will be on the shelf for at least the new week and a half. The timing of the injury is unfortunate for Gomber, who had emerged as the Rockies' most reliable starter over the past five weeks. Before he exited Saturday's outing after two innings, Gomber posted a 1.28 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 8.7 K/9 over his preceding seven starts.
Manager Bud Black said the forearm tightness that forced Gomber to leave his Saturday start against the Brewers showed up more in the thick of the muscle as opposed to closer to the joint, which the club considers a good sign as of now, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
The Rockies will continue to evaluate the left-hander, but it sounds like the team is optimistic that he's avoided the worst-case scenario based on Black's initial update. Gomber can be considered questionable to make his start in Milwaukee next weekend, with further updates likely to come on the 27-year-old in the coming days.
Gomber exited Saturday's start against the Brewers as a precautionary measure due to left forearm tightness.
The reason for Gomber's early departure was initially a mystery. The southpaw allowed two runs on four hits during two innings before exiting. He'll be further evaluated before Colorado determines if he'll be able to make his start.
Gomber left Saturday's start against the Brewers after just two innings for an undisclosed reason, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. He allowed two runs on four hits before departing.
No details have been revealed at this point explaining why Gomber left early, though Colorado will likely provide an update by the end of the night Saturday. Gomber entered Saturday with a solid 3.54 ERA and 1.05 WHIP, so the Rockies will certainly be crossing their fingers that the issue is minor.
Gomber (6-5) yielded three hits over eight shutout innings Monday, striking out four and earning a win over the Padres.
Gomber rolled through San Diego's lineup with ease Monday, allowing just two singles and a double while only one Padre reached scoring position. It was his seventh consecutive start giving up two or fewer runs and he's earned the win in four of his last five. The 6-foot-5 southpaw lowered his season ERA to 3.54 alongside a 75:23 K:BB. Gomber is projected to face Milwaukee at home this weekend where he'll look for a fourth straight win.
Gomber (5-5) allowed one earned run on five hits and no walks while striking out five across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Marlins.
Gomber's lone run allowed came in the fifth inning, when he surrendered a pair of singles. He was strong otherwise, primarily based on his ability to keep the ball on the ground. Gomber has now allowed two or fewer earned runs in each of his last six starts, and he has worked at least five innings in all but one of those outings. For the season, he now has a 3.95 ERA with a 71:23 K:BB across 68.1 frames.
Gomber (4-5) picked up the win Thursday after holding the Rangers scoreless across six innings. He allowed three hits and no walks while striking out six.
It was a gem of an outing for Gomber, who blanked his opponent for just the second time this year and did not issue any free passes for the third time. The left-hander seems to be figuring things out at hitter-happy Coors Field. He's also found success in his recent outings, scattering five runs over his last five starts to lower his ERA to 4.12 and WHIP to 1.14. Gomber's next projected start lines up for a favorable road matchup Wednesday at Miami.
Gomber is now scheduled to make his next start Thursday at home against the Rangers, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.
Earlier in the week, Jon Gray was listed as the Rockies' probable starter for Thursday's series finale, but manager Bud Black ultimately elected to push the right-hander back a day in the pitching schedule. He'll now take the hill Friday against the Athletics at Coors Field, allowing Gomber to get the nod Thursday. Both Gomber and Gray made starts in the May 29 doubleheader with the Pirates, so the late switch in the pitching schedule won't affect the other members of the rotation.
Gomber (3-5) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Pirates after allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk while fanning five across four innings.
Gomber gave up two homers -- to Adam Frazier in the first and Ka'ai Tom in the fourth -- and didn't have enough run support to avoid the loss. Gomber has given up two or fewer earned runs in each of his last four appearances, though, and he owns a 4.55 ERA on the season. His next scheduled start will come next week at home against the Athletics.
Gomber (3-4) picked up the win Monday, allowing two runs on four hits over eight innings in a 3-2 victory over the Mets. He struck out eight without walking a batter.
The southpaw did serve up two solo shots, but otherwise Gomber took care of an undermanned Mets lineup, tossing 70 of 103 pitches for strikes. He's delivered two straight quality starts and six on the season, and he'll carry a 4.56 ERA and 55:22 K:BB through 53.1 innings into his next outing.
Gomber hurled six innings against San Diego on Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits and one walk while striking out seven. He did not factor in the decision.
The left-hander registered his second straight strong start and has allowed only one earned run over his past 11.1 innings. The lone run scored against Gomber on Tuesday came on a groundout in the second inning. He tied his season high with seven punchouts, induced 15 swinging strikes and lowered his ERA to 4.96 on the campaign. Gomber's next start is tentatively scheduled for Monday in New York against the Mets.
Gomber didn't factor into the decision in a 3-2 extra-inning win over the Padres during the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader, giving up one unearned run on four hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out six.
The lefty put together perhaps his best start of the season, throwing 55 of 83 pitches for strikes and exiting the game in line for a win. Despite Wednesday's impressive showing, Gomber will take a 5.49 ERA and 40:21 K:BB through 39 innings into his next outing.
Gomber (2-4) allowed five earned runs on six hits while striking out seven across five innings, taking the loss to the Cardinals on Friday.
Gomber's inconsistencies continued Friday as he surrendered home runs to Harrison Bader and opposing pitcher Jack Flaherty. Despite the loss, Gomber didn't walk anyone for the first time in seven starts this season. The 27-year-old has a 6.35 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 34 innings. He will look to get back on track in his next start against the Padres on Wednesday.
Gomber (2-3) allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out four across six innings, earning the win against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Gomber bounced back from a brutal appearance Monday. He allowed a solo home run to Andrew Young in the sixth inning Saturday, but the 27-year-old was effective otherwise and lowered his ERA to 5.90 through 29 innings. However, if you take away his previous outing, his ERA is only 3.32 in 27.1 innings. His next start is scheduled for Friday in St. Louis.
Gomber (1-3) allowed nine runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out three over just 1.2 innings in a loss to the Giants on Monday.
Gomber surrendered just one hit over 6.1 innings against the Giants on April 9 but wasn't able to replicate that same success Monday. The 27-year-old recorded just five outs as he was rocked for seven hits while managing to throw only 34 of his 64 pitches for strikes. He gave up four runs in the opening frame and was charged with five more in the second after Jhoulys Chacin allowed all three inherited runners to score when he replaced Gomber with the bases loaded. The lefty currently leads all qualified pitchers with 19 walks over 23 total innings and now owns the second-worst qualifying ERA in baseball at 6.65. He'll look for a rebound performance Saturday against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.
Gomber (1-2) allowed two runs on two hits and a pair of walks with six strikeouts in six innings, earning the win Wednesday versus the Astros.
The only damage on Gomber's line came from a Yuli Gurriel two-run homer in the second inning. Gomber showed improved control, only allowing two walks for the second consecutive start. He has a 3.38 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across 21.1 innings this season, but he also sports a 20:15 K:BB through four starts. The southpaw has worked at least six innings in each of his last three outings, and he's scheduled to take the mound Monday in San Francisco.
Gomber allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven over six innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Thursday.
Justin Turner smacked a three-run homer off Gomber, but the lefty was strong otherwise and was even briefly in line to beat the defending World Series champs before Yency Almonte coughed up the lead. Gomber, acquired in the Nolan Arenado trade, issued seven free passes over three innings in his Rockies debut at Coors Field. In two road starts since, Gomber has pitched 12.1 innings with only seven hits allowed, six walks and 12 strikeouts. Unfortunately, he's home again next week, but then Gomber projects for a couple more road starts the week of April 26.
Gomber (0-2) allowed two runs on a hit and four walks over 6.1 innings in a loss to the Giants on Friday. He struck out five.
Gomber still had difficulty finding the strike zone, but Friday's outing was actually a noticeable improvement from his first start. The southpaw hasn't been punished too much for his high walk rate -- he has a 2.89 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with seven strikeouts and 11 free passes across 9.1 innings this year. He's still in search of his first win with the Rockies, and he's expected to make his next start Thursday versus the Dodgers.
Gomber (0-1) allowed three earned runs on one hit and seven walks while striking out two across three innings, taking the loss against the Dodgers on Sunday.
Gomber struggled in his Rockies debut, failing to ever settle in. After allowing three runs in the first inning, the 27-year-old managed to get through the next two innings without allowing a run. However, his command issues led to seven walks, earning him an early departure. Gomber will look to improve in his next start against the Giants on Friday.
Gomber allowed two hits and no walks while striking out four over three scoreless innings in Tuesday's spring win over the White Sox. He didn't factor into the decision.
Gomber had allowed seven runs across his past two spring starts, but he ended on a high note during Tuesday's Cactus League finale. The southpaw lines up to make his regular-season debut with the Rockies as the starter against the Dodgers on Sunday. Gomber posted a 3.20 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 19.2 innings across six starts this spring.
