While Gomez is getting his chance due to Conforto's injury, he will have an opportunity to stick with the big league squad if he can produce during this stint. Keon Broxton could be on the chopping block, and Brandon Nimmo has been streaky (and hits left-handed), and Gomez could play his way into a regular role. However, Gomez did not have a good year in 2018 in Tampa Bay but was hitting .270 with six home runs down in Triple-A.
