Bullpen Settled? | The Process Report

Bullpen Settled?

The news is somewhat surprising given that Gomes still has an option and Lueke and Lowe do not. Lowe has been someone that the team has liked for quite some time and, by all reports, has looked good this spring. Lowe has been given permission to look for jobs with other teams or accept an assignment to Triple-A. This means the final pitching staff will likely be:

  • David Price
  • Alex Cobb
  • Matt Moore
  • Chris Archer
  • Jake Odorizzi
  • Josh Lueke
  • Brandon Gomes
  • Cesar Ramos
  • Heath Bell
  • Joel Peralta
  • Jake McGee
  • Grant Balfour

Gomes or Lueke will need to come off the roster once Juan Oviedo is ready to come off the disabled list. Gomes may have survived this round of cuts, despite his options, but may not be so fortunate next time around if past history is any indicator of future moves.

    Gomes is the guy Maddon will go to in a medium leverage situation where he needs a strikeout and the opposition has a tough right handed hitter-Just remember LN aka Oviedo hasn’t pitched in a while.If he didn’t feel that way he would have kept Lowe.Review Gomes situational appearances late last year and he looks healthy now.
