ST. PETERSBURG -- The Rays recalled Brandon Gomes from Triple-A on Friday in a corresponding move to placing designated hitter Luke Scott on the 15-day disabled list with mid-back spasms on Thursday
Gomes was 1-1 with a 7.71 ERA in five games for the Rays earlier this season. The right-hander went 4-0 with a 0.39 ERA with six saves in 18 games for Triple-A Durham.
Gomes, 27, struggled during Spring Training after having offseason back surgery, which likely had something to do with the results he had while with the Rays.
He pitched well for the Rays last season, going 2-1 with a 2.92 ERA in 40 games.
Scott's placement on the DL with mid-back spasms was retroactive to Saturday.
