Gomez, 23, joined the Cardinals organization as a minor league free agent in November. The native of Venezuela spent the first seven years of his career in the Tampa Bay Rays system. The right-handed hitting outfielder has considerable power, but also an aggregate career strikeout rate of 27.7% (30.4% in early action with Springfield).
McGreevy, 21, was St. Louis’ first-round draft pick in 2021 from Cal Santa Barbara. The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder split his partial first season between rookie ball and Low-A, making one-inning stints. His two outings with High-A Peoria have been five and 6 2/3 innings respectively.
