With DH Luke Scott not expected to be out for a significant amount of time and with the Rays headed toward six interleague games next week in National League cities, the team decided to fill Scott’s spot on the roster with RHP Brandon Gomes.

Gomes was 1-1 with a 7.71 ERA in 4 2/3 innings over five games during two stints with the Rays earlier this season.

But Gomes, who was solid out of the bullpen down the stretch last season, seems to have righted himself at Triple A Durham, where he is 4-0 with a 0.39 ERA in 23 1.3 innings over 18 games. He struck out 34 and walked only eight.

Scott was placed on the DL on Thursday retroactive to June 9 because of back spasms. The Rays added the extra pitcher because they will play without the DH as they finish off interleague play next week with three games in Washington and three in Philadelphia.
