Rays place Gomez on DL, promote Arroyo

The Tampa Bay Rays placed outfielder Carlos Gomez on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained right groin, according to a team announcement.

The 32-year-old suffered the injury Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals.

Gomez had been struggling at the plate, hitting just .200/.252/.345 so far this season.

In a corresponding move, Tampa recalled infielder Christian Arroyo from Triple-A Durham.

Arroyo, 22, is listed as the sixth-best prospect in the Rays organization, according to MLB Pipeline, and was acquired as part of a trade package from the San Francisco Giants for Evan Longoria in December.
