Bats: R, Throws: R

After a struggling start as an Astro Friday, Carlos Gomez went 3-for-5 during Saturday evening's 9-2 routing victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. He had a pair of singles and a double, while also tallying a pair of ground outs collectively in the game. Gomez ticked his average up to .264 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Many fans saw Gomez have a hitless night on Friday and felt compelled to shutter at the new acquisition. But the veteran outfielder put all of those fears to bed with this past 3 hit outing. Fantasy holders may want to keep a close eye on Gomez for now.

Fantasy Impact: With the trade falling apart, fantasy owners should expect more of the same from Carlos Gomez as his situation now remains unchanged. This doesn't mean that a trade still can't happen as the Brewers are clearly willing to move the star center fielder.

Fantasy Impact: This provides the Mets with the bat they were so urgently seeking. This is also the first time in the last six years the Mets have been buyers. They have a solid chance to contend this year and Gomez will play a major role as he returns to the team where it all started in 2007. He may also see a bump in plate appearances as the potential leadoff hitter.
