The Jeanmar Gomez File
Born: Feb. 10, 1988 in Caracas, VZ
Position: Starting Pitcher
Acquired: Signed as a non-drafted free agent, April 4, 2005
Strengths: Has good command of three-pitch mix (fastball, curve and changeup). The organization likes his mound presence, durability, and believes he will begin to fill out his big body and become a more powerful pitcher.
Weaknesses: Stalled at Kinston (5-9, 4.55 ERA) in '08 and needs to get better sink on fastball, sharpen his curve, and work on repeating his delivery.
2009 Projections: Likely to return to rotation at Kinston.
