Fantasy Impact: Carlos Gomez has had a horrid time with the Houston Astros and maybe a change of scenery, in a hitter park is just what the doctor ordered. Currently, Gomez has a .210 batting average with five home runs and a .267 OBP. Let's hope Texas can give him a boost. For now, leave Gomez off your team until he can show consistent production.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez has had an awful run with the Astros. Gomez has hit a dreadful .210 this season with five home runs and a .257 OBP. With the Astros rich farm system it did not make sense for them to hold onto Gomez. If Gomez does sign with another team, he still is not worth picking up immediatly. Give him some time to figure things out, if he ever does.

Carlos Gomez did not start the game, but entered as a pinch-runner swiping his 13th bag on the season. The Astros beat the Twins 7-5.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez is having a dreadful 2016 season slashing .210/.272/.594 with 5 HR and 29 RBI. He is batting .077 in August which is one of the reasons why he has been absent from the Astros lineup recently. With all of these factors, he offers zero fantasy value at this time.

Carlos Gomez went 0-for-3 with a strikeout on Monday against the Twins, dropping his average on the season to .210. Gomez has just one hit in August and is batting .077 for the month.

Fantasy Impact: It's been a disastrous season for Gomez, who has battled injury and has been ineffective when he has played. With just five home runs and 12 steals, Gomez does not need to be owned in mixed leagues at this point.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez has been awful this season, but he was actually showing improvement of late with hits in each of his last four games and two stolen bases over that span. Of course, there's a real chance he'll be sidelined for an extended period due to the hamstring injury.

Carlos Gomez clubs grand slam

Mon, Jul 18th 7:02am EDT
By Chris Zolli

Carlos Gomez only finished 1-for-4 on Sunday, but his his hit was a grand slam in the Astros' 8-1 win against the Mariners. Gomez is only hitting .149 this month, clubbing four extra-base hits, scoring four runs, and driving in nine batters. He has a .610 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez is still far away from being a fantasy starter, but does still have the talent to have a big game from time to time. While he only has hits in four of his last 10 games, including three games with only one hit, he does also have a three-hit game where he had three RBI.

During Wednesday afternoon's 10-4 series sweeping victory over the Los Angeles Angels, Carlos Gomez got another center field start. He went 1-for-4 with a RBI single. While also tallying a pair of line outs, a strikeout and a drawn walk, Gomez holds to a .227 batting average and .626 OPS on the season.

Fantasy Impact: This 42nd ranked outfielder in fantasy leagues has made some great strides in recent games, averaging .321 (18-for-56) over the past 15 contests. However, owners should be weary off his recent free swings that have caused him to strikeout eight times over the last seven of those same games. He still has the defensive prowess with the glove, but Gomez still needs plenty to be desired with that bat.

During Friday evening's 13-4 routing victory over the Kansas City Royals, Carlos Gomez made another start in center field. In doing so, he went 2-for-4 with a double and a RBI single. While also drawing a walk, grounding into a double play, and striking out, Gomez has made a slight jump in his average to .222 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The #41 ranked outfielder in active fantasy leagues has been making a time of things lately, going 10-for-29 (.345 BA) over the past seven games. Similar to the numbers of Colby Rasmus, Gomez has been heating his bat up and maintaining his even more impressive glove. Owners that have the veteran outfielder will want to continue playing him while he's hot.

Starting in center field Sunday in the series win against the Cincinnati Reds, Carlos Gomez went 1-for-4 with a RBI double. He also tallied a pop out and a pair of ground outs, with one of them turning a double play. Gomez has kept to a .210 average on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Don't let the low average fool you, fantasy owners. June has been his surge month, as his offensive slash line of the month stands at .271/.340/.819 and is 8 for his last 20 over the past week. This would help to explain why he still ranks #47 among outfielders and #127 overall. Owners that have him will want to keep starting him. Those in need of an outfielder with value on both sides of the ball, Gomez can certainly be that player for you!

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-3 with three runs scored on Tuesday night against the Cardinals. The Astros won the game 5-2.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez, who has struggled all year, has picked up his play slightly during the month of June. He is only batting .200 for the month but has three home runs, the only ones he has hit this season. Gomez is still a risky play fantasy-wise and until we see a definitive change in his production he should be left alone in most formats.

Carlos Gomez finished 0-for-3 against the Rangers on Thursday and 1-for-12 in the four-game series against Texas. Gomez has a .167 batting average in June, but three of his four hits have gone for extra-bases, including two home runs. He has a .537 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez had home runs in two of three games at the end of the last week/beginning of this week, but those were his first home runs of the season. Once a 30/30 type player with an average in the .280s, Gomez has lost all value over the last two seasons. He has never faced the Rays' starter on Friday, Matt Andriese, and has a .426 OPS against right-handed pitchers this season, probably putting him on the bench tonight.

Starting in center field Sunday in the series sweeping finale against the Oakland Athletics, Carlos Gomez had his most productive day at the plate so far in 2016. He went 2-for-4 with a late double and his first home run of the season. While also grounding out and reaching on a fielding error, Gomez has spiked his average up to .191 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Owners can now rejoice in the fact that Gomez has gotten his OPS above .500 for the first time in 2016. (It now currently sits at a .526) The veteran outfielder still ranks at a respectable #41 among active outfielders in fantasy leagues and is 66% owned. However, he desperately needs to keep a healthy hit streak going, or could face a huge decline in rankings, and potentially ownership as well. Owners should stand by and monitor what Gomez can do in the next few games.

Carlos Gomez went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in a 3-0 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: Since being recalled from the DL, Gomez has been the same player we saw before he missed time. Gomez has struck out 53 times in 132 plate appearances, earning him a dreadful .182 BA with zero home runs and only five RBI. Sadly at this point, he is not worth owning in fantasy baseball until he can figure his issues out offensively.

Carlos Gomez has been activated off the disabled list and is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks. Gomez will bat seventh and play center-field for the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: It's good to see Gomez back after his brief DL stint. Make sure to get him back in your lineups.

Carlos Gomez went 1-for-4, with his lone hit being a home run, in Wednesday's rehab game.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez is now 1-for-8 in his first two rehab games. His stock has dropped a ton considering his slow start to the season. Still, his upside is appealing and his preseason cost was significant considering his ADP, leaving fantasy owners in a tough predicament. He should be back with the Astros next week.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez was subject to being benched even before his move to the DL. This opens up a roster spot for Houston and allows Gomez to try and see if he can turn things around early in the season. Currently, Gomez is batting a putrid .182 in 34 games. You should strongly consider benching him until he can show some production.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez is one of the largest disappointments of the season both in terms of fantasy and real baseball. He's only mustered an OPS of .486 over 121 at-bats, generating more than twice as many strikeouts than hits. The one thing in Gomez's favor is the lack of replacement options for the team and of course his contract and history of success.


In Thursday's blowout loss to the Boston Red Sox, Carlos Gomez made another start in center field and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout, pop out and a pair of ground outs, with one of the ground outs as a double play. Gomez has lowered his average down to .196 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: In his first 112 at-bats in 2015 with the Brewers, Gomez was batting .268. In those same amount of games in 2016 with the Astros, he already is tallying an average 72 points lower. This is a clear indication of offensive withdrawal on the part of this veteran outfielder. Owners may need to sit or drop Gomez going forward, as there seems to be no significant progress at the plate.

Carlos Gomez finished 0 for the weekend against the Mariners, capped by a 0-for-4 performance on Sunday where he struck out twice. The most surprising thing of the weekend is that he walked twice, mainly because he has 34 strikeouts and just four walks in 2016. Gomez has bottomed out with a .534 OPS.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez has been brutal in 2016 and has yet to put together more than a three-game hitting streak. Other than his woeful average, Gomez does not have a home run in 2016 and only has eight doubles. He only has four RBI and six runs scored, making him a massive bust in all formats.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez has not been able to get in rhythm as he keeps getting injured. If Gomez can get on track, he is one of the few players that have a legitimate shot at achieving the coveted 20/20 power-speed combo. Carlos should be in your lineups if your short on speed. If you can afford to wait a few days, do so to see how he comes back from inury, especially in DFS games.

Fantasy Impact: Preston Tucker will replace Gomez in Houston's lineup. Gomez does not have a great history with any injury so stay tuned to see the extent of this one.

Carlos Gomez finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout against the Red Sox on Saturday, continuing his woeful start to the 2016 season. Gomez has a .485 OPS to start the season and has struck out 16 times in 61 at-bats.

Fantasy Impact: While Gomez's 16 strikeouts are not awful per se, the fact that he has only walked twice this season shows that he is not showing the necessary plate discipline. Gomez also has not hit for power this season, posting one RBI and four doubles, and, other than two stolen bases in a three game span, has not shown speed either. His BABIP has dropped in each of the last four seasons, but so too has his hard hit ball percentage, showing that Gomez may be a bust as a OF2 and player to sell immediately.

Coming back to center field on Tuesday in the loss to the Texas Rangers, Carlos Gomez went 1-for-4 with a RBI double in the 2nd inning. While also flying out, lining out and striking out, he has made a slight jump in his average, which is now up to .196 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez was brought over from the Brewers last season in an attempt to provide extra pop for the Astros. So far, he has not done that very much, reducing his average by over 20 points in that stretch. The hope is that his first RBI can get his wheels going again. Owners can keep a player like Gomez around for his defensive prowess (a career DRS of 84 over 9 seasons), but monitor his at-bats like a hawk for, at the very least, the rest of April.

Gomez is having trouble early in the season. He is currently only hitting .190 with only one walk so far.

Fantasy Impact: It is a major slump, especially when combined with last season. From 2012-14, he was a remarkable combination of roughly 20-HR and 30+ steals. If he returns to that form, he will be a major asset, especially in that mighty Astros lineup.


Center fielder Carlos Gomez broke up his hitless streak on Tuesday evening against the Kansas City Royals by going 1-for-3 with a double and a drawn walk. While also popping out and grounding out to strand a pair of runners, Gomez raised his average up to .214 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez ranks #19 among outfielders because of his combination of power and speed. Breaking his latest hitless streak, it is necessary to get him back to his 2013 and 2014 form. Owners will want to watch him like a hawk in the coming games to make sure said form returns soon.

Carlos Gomez hitless again

Tue, Apr 12th 7:14am EDT
By Chris Zolli

Carlos Gomez was 0-for-4 in the Astros' 8-2 win over the Royals on Monday, his third 0-fer this season. Gomez has a .200 batting average this season with 10 strikeouts in 25 at-bats.

Fantasy Impact: The Astros added Gomez to solidify the center field position, but Gomez has thrived neither in 2015 nor 2016, as the 30-year-old had a .671 OPS with the Astros in 2015 and a .480 OPS in 2016. Gomez does have two doubles this season, but the Astros thought that they were adding the player with back-to-back 20/30 seasons in 2013 and 2014 when they traded for Gomez at the trade deadline in 2015. Preston Tucker has a 1.345 OPS in 15 at-bats this season and Evan Gattis is returning from the DL, putting more pressure on Gomez to perform. Fantasy owners need to monitor the approach of the free swinging Gomez and hope that he keeps his at-bats.

Keeping to his usual center field in the Friday finale at home against the Brewers, Carlos Gomez went 1-for-3 with a ground rule double that resulted in a RBI. He also tallied a fly out and strikeout, while stranding two runners. Gomez finishes spring at a mere .195 average.

Fantasy Impact: His ADP of 51 is nothing to sneeze at, as Gomez is a feast or famine type of hitter. Power is a great asset he has, and those owners in need of that can certainly draft him if they desire. However, please use caution when doing so.

Veteran outfielder, Carlos Gomez took to center field Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies. In doing so, he went 1-for-4 with a double, while also stranding two runners by way of a pop out, fly out and strikeout. Gomez stands at a mere .200 average going into late week exhibition games.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez still ranks #55 overall and #21 among outfielders, so he is a players that fantasy owners can take or leave, respectfully. However, he is still a good option if you need any players last minute. If that is the case, Gomez is a steal!

It was another rough day for veteran outfielder, Carlos Gomez, as he went 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts. He also left a man on base and drew a walk. With today's game, Gomez has lowered his average down to .263 in spring training.

Fantasy Impact: This was another feast or famine approach for Gomez that swung to the latter in this past game. His high upside has him at a ADP of 54. Fantasy owners need not be quick to jump to draft Gomez, but can keep him in mind as a second or third OF.

Category: , Game Recaps


Carlos Gomez finished 1-for-2 with a hit, a run, and a walk against the Nationals, seeing his spring batting average jump to .294. All was not good for Gomez, though, as the third hitter in the Astros' lineup left three runners on base in Houston's 5-3 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez only had a .670 OPS in 41 games with the Astros in 2015, posting only 13 extra base hits, and the Astros will look for more offensive output from the 29-year-old. He posted back-to-back All-Star seasons with the Brewers in 2013 and 2014, and averaged 37 stolen bases from 2012-2014, and fantasy owners will hope that 2015 was an aberration. Those who look for the 2012-2014 output from Gomez also need to remember that he had a .648 OPS in 539 career games coming into 2012, but also need to look at the fact that he averages 33 stolen bases per 162 games for his career. Gomez has an ECR of 58 and ADP of 54 coming into 2016 and fantasy owners should be encouraged by his change in his approach at the plate.

Serving as the team DH in the split squad game against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, Carlos Gomez went 1-for-2 with a single. He also tallied a strikeout. Gomez keeps to a respectable .267 average in Grapefruit League.

Starting at center field on Wednesday against the Detroit Tigers, Carlos Gomez could not get a hit. He went 0-for-0, while drawing a walk. Gomez holds his average this spring at .231 so far.

Making another center field start on Friday against the Detroit Tigers, Carlos Gomez went 1-for-2 with a single. He also grounded out and drew a walk. Gomez raises his spring average to .222 so far.

Starting in center field on Wednesday against the Atlanta Braves, Carlos Gomez got his first hit of Spring Training and went 1-for-2 on the day. He tallied both a double and a pop out. Gomez now has a starting spring average of a mere .143 so far.

Fantasy Impact: It is a relieving thing to see the veteran outfielder finally get his offensive footing in place. While he may still have a ways to go this spring, Gomez should be able to put some meat on that batting average soon enough. Fantasy owners can draft Gomez at their own discretion.

Starting in center field on Monday versus the Washington Nationals, Carlos Gomez came up short again. He went 0-for-1 while drawing a walk and striking out. He remains hitless so far in Grapefruit League.

Starting at center field in the home split squad game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Carlos Gomez came up short again. He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout and a ground out. Gomez did reach base by drawing a walk, but continues Grapefruit League without an average so far.

Fantasy Impact: It's really hard to explain why Gomez has not gotten a hit yet this spring. Granted, the veteran outfielder still has about a month to find his offensive footing. But even that much of a stretch of time will pass pretty quickly, and he will need to be ready. If you do draft Gomez, fantasy holders, please do so with caution.

Taking to center field in his 2016 debut Saturday against the New York Mets, Carlos Gomez had a rough go at the plate. He went 0-for-2 with a fly out and a strikeout. He begins this spring without an average.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez came back in a big way to help the ball club with his glove, bat, and base running as he stole second once again this season. The veteran outfielder will certainly be needed for a potential playoff run starting next week. Fantasy holders don't have to invest, but do keep an eye to Gomez.

Though he did reach base by way of a drawn walk, he also tallied a fly out and a pair of ground outs in the game. Gomez has kept his average to .253 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: This outing was a bad day at the office for Gomez. He made some good hits, but did not catch the breaks he needed, much the same as the rest of the lineup. But the veteran outfielder will make better strides as the season winds down. Fantasy holders can do with Gomez what they wish.

Fantasy Impact: It was refreshing to have Gomez come through in a clutch. Despite the loss, the veteran outfielder did come into his own with the all the plays he made in that outing.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran outfielder is making his strides at the plate and on the base paths. It's hard to say how long it will last, since he is a bit streaky. However, he will be needed for some clutch plays going into October. Fantasy holders can do with Gomez what they wish.

Fantasy Impact: The Gomez seen in this past outing is the Gomez that everyone has been accustomed to seeing before.

Fantasy Impact: While all great hitters go through a dry spell, this recent one for Gomez has lasted way to long.

Fantasy Impact: Call it hunch, but it appeared as if the return of Springer to the lineup may have gotten to the head of Gomez, if even a little bit. The veteran outfielder should be a little worried, however, because he is not living up to the full potential he has been known to possess in the past.

Fantasy Impact: It seems as though the more Gomez tries to swing for the fences, the more results go against his favor. The veteran outfielder most assuredly needs to learn more small ball for the coming stretch. The RBI single helps, but it's not quite enough.

Fantasy Impact: This was another one of those not-too-surprising hot streak days for Gomez. The veteran outfielder has the capacity to do more of these coming down the stretch towards the post season. Whether or not he will be able to achieve more than enough of these hot streaks remains to be seen.

Fantasy Impact: There was still way too much to be desired from the bat of Gomez. The veteran outfielder has made very little impact since his acquisition, minus a couple of breakout days.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez certainly did his part in this past game by getting one of the only six hits made by the team. However, it is still not up to the full potential of the veteran outfielder that was much more on display in the previous series versus the Yankees. Fantasy holders may just want to skip over Gomez for the remainder of the season.

Holding at center field during Wednesday afternoon's 6-2 series clinching victory over the New York Yankees, Carlos Gomez went 1-for-3 with a single in the 5th inning. He also tallied a pair of strikeouts and drew a walk in the game. Gomez has held to a .246 average on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The one thing Gomez can stand to do is obtain some plate consistency. Bagging 4 RBI in one game to getting only one bloop single the next is an understandably frustrating thing for the team, fans, and even the veteran outfielder himself. While some would call it the nature of the beast, there has to be more drive by Gomez to make more contact and swing less for the fences. Fantasy holders can invest in Gomez if they prefer, but don't hold your breath.

Starting again at center field during Tuesday evening's 15-1 routing victory over the New York Yankees, Carlos Gomez went on an offensive explosion. He went 2-for-6 with a three-run home run (his 10th of the year) and a RBI double to score Colby Rasmus in the 1st inning and scored 2 runs himself. He also tallied a pair of line outs, a ground out and a fly out collectively in the game. Gomez has risen his average up slightly to .245 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: This was a game that showed the true Carlos Gomez in all of his phenomenal offensive form. The benches clearing verbal fight wasn't exactly classy of him. However, it did show exactly how passionate this veteran outfielder is about the game he plays. Fantasy holders may actually want to go back to keeping a close eye on Gomez going forward.

Making another center field start during Monday evening's 1-0 shutout loss to the New York Yankees, Carlos Gomez came up short at the plate again. He went 0-for-3 with a ground out, fly out, strikeout and sacrifice bunt. Gomez average has fallen again, down now to .244 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran outfielder has still yet to impress. Hitting in the measly .160 range since being acquired, Gomez leaves way too much to be desired. There is a chance he could still improve as the season winds down, but the evidence is mounting against that sentiment, and to Gomez as well. Fantasy holders, don't even bother looking at the veteran outfielder for the remainder of 2015.

Fantasy Impact: This past outing saw Gomez swing the bat a tad better. The veteran outfielder has made strides, but is still not at the level of what he is capable of. As the season winds down, that offensive level could start to show more, but it is uncertain. Fantasy holders can invest in Gomez if they want, but don't get your hopes up just yet.

He went 0-for-3 with a ground out, fly out and line out all collectively in the game. Gomez took another hit in his average, which is down now to .246 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Like so many fans, and maybe even fantasy holders, I am also still not fully invested in the acquisition of Gomez. He did have some pretty good hits and plays within the first week or two after the trade. Since then, however, the production he is more than capable of has yet to show its metaphorical face. Fantasy holders, you may want to, barring some kind of surge in the batter's box, hold off on Gomez for the remainder of the 2015 season.

He also tallied a ground out and a pair of strikeouts collectively in the game. Gomez has kept his average solid and steady at .248 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: This was another game that saw Gomez and his offense deteriorate as the game wore on. It is a wonder why the veteran outfielder is not producing at the plate what he is capable of. Getting him as an acquisition is now starting to produce a few more question marks than explanation points. No disrespect meant, but fantasy holders should not get too excited for Gomez for the remainder of 2015.

Fantasy Impact: After battling some kind of flu the day before, it is understandable that Gomez would be trying to regain his baseball footing. However, the veteran outfielder has to regain himself soon. Otherwise, he may face some more pine riding in the near future. Fantasy holders, don't get too excited when it comes to Gomez. At least, not for the remainder of this season.

He also had a strikeout and was walked twice, once intentionally by Rays closer, Jake McGee. Gomez made a slight climb in his average to an even and solid .250 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez has certainly been making some good strides lately with both the glove and the bat. In addition to that, he also successfully stole a base in this past outing, indicating possession of some quick feet in the playing process. Fantasy holders should expect Gomez to get better in the coming games, and may want to keep a eye on him going forward.

Fantasy Impact: Getting a hit to break out of his dry spell will certainly provide some much need confidence boosting for the veteran outfielder. Many did question when the team acquired him whether or not he would be able to live up to the hype. He has succeeded in doing that to a degree, but will need to keep the hits coming in order to not be considered a questionable acquisition. Fantasy holders can keep close watch on Gomez if they like, but don't make the effort to invest in him for the remainder of this season.

Fantasy Impact: The mystery still remains why this veteran outfielder that was recently acquired is now, all of a sudden, not being able to generate the offense he is capable of.

There is a big need for Gomez to get back on all cylinders, and fantasy holders will need to bench him until that happens.

Fantasy Impact: The recent struggles of the veteran outfielder remain a mystery. The same could be said for a number of players in the lineup.
