Eddie Gamboa, pitcher

Who is he?

An organizational pitcher. He was apparently drafted as a college senior (he signed at age 23) who became a marginal prospect by virtue of pitching well. He was bypassed by pitchers with better stuff and was relegated to the dreaded swingman role at Bowie. He’s survived by not walking batters, but he gives up too many hits and doesn’t strike out enough batters. He made four emergency appearances at Norfolk in 2013, and didn’t pitch well. There’s no guarantee he’ll survive the numbers game after spring training.
