Indians Lose Mariano Gomez
November 30, 2007
Gomez was a once promising left-handed pitcher in the system who had trouble overcoming a partially torn tendon on the middle finger of his pitching hand in 2003 which sidetracked him and he was never the same after that. At 6'6" and 190 pounds, he was an intriguing prospect as a left-handed pitcher because of his size, quick arm action, and the way he whipped the ball to the plate. He finishes his eight year minor league career (he signed at 16-years old) with the Indians at 28-30 with a 4.15 ERA in 195 games (74 starts).
Also, not mentioned previously, the Indians re-signed right-handed pitcher Jeff Harris to a minor league deal two weeks ago.
