Gomez to pitch for Mahoning Valley
That appears to all but be a formality at this point with the announcement that Gomez will now be making a start for short season Single-A Mahoning Valley on Wednesday night. The fact that the Indians are having him make a start on Wednesday in Mahoning Valley instead of attending the Tripe-A All Star game or just making a start when Columbus resumes play on Thursday pretty much shows the Indians are aligning him to make a start this weekend. He is expected to start on Sunday July 17th in Baltimore in place of right-hander Mitch Talbot.
