The Cleveland Indians have optioned right-hander Jeanmar Gomez to Triple-A, reports Jordan Bastian of MLB.com. Gomez was replaced on the Indians’ roster by left-hander Scott Barnes. Bastian notes right-hander Zach McAllister is expected to take Gomez’s spot in the rotation this Thursday.

Gomez, 24, broke camp as a member of the Indians’ starting rotation after a strong showing this spring. After maintaining an ERA of 2.35 through April, Gomez has struggled. On the season, the right-hander has posted an ERA and WHIP of 5.18 and 1.384, but he’s gone 1-5 with a 7.92 ERA over his past six starts.

Barnes has now appeared in five games with the Indians this season, all in relief. The left-hander has allowed six earned runs over his seven innings of work with seven strikeouts and five walks. The 24-year-old maintained an ERA and WHIP of 3.73 and 1.149 over his 31 1/3 innings with Cleveland’s Triple-A affiliate.

McAllister has already started four games for the Indians this season, maintaining an ERA and WHIP of 3.96 and 1.240 over his 25 innings pitched. The 24-year-old has held an ERA and WHIP of 2.98 and 1.232 over his 63 1/3 innings in Triple-A.
