Carlos Gomez (hamstring) will be placed on the disabled list and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Gomez strained his right hamstring during Sunday's game and will officially be put on the DL Tuesday. Craig Mish of Fantasy Sports Radio hears that the Rangers will promote Jared Hoying to take Gomez's spot on the roster.

Carlos Gomez was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Athletics with a right hamstring strain.

He's set to undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury. Look from an update from the Rangers on Monday afternoon, but fantasy owners should have a contingency plan in place in the event that Gomez is going to miss some time.

Carlos Gomez hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning Saturday against the Angels to complete the cycle.

It was Gomez's first time hitting for the cycle since May 7, 2008 when he was a member of the Minnesota Twins. There's something about Saturday that brings out the best in Gomez, as he has collected seven hits over his past two games on a Saturday. He is 13-for-34 (.382) over his past nine games to raise his average from .155 to .239 just since April 19.
Apr 30 - 12:01 AM

Carlos Gomez collected three hits in Saturday's win over the Royals.

The outfielder finished the game 3-for-4, with all three coming as singles. It's not much, but sometimes stringing a few hits together can be the breakthrough a struggling player needs. And Gomez is certainly struggling, hitting .197/.296/.380 even with Saturday's game.
Apr 23 - 12:12 AM

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and three runs scored Monday against the A's.

In moving Elvis Andrus up to the two hole, the Rangers decided to drop Shin-Soo Choo to the bottom third of the order, rather than Gomez. There was a case for either; Choo should have the significantly better OBP going forward, but Gomez is significant more effective when he's on base. Gomez is still hitting just .176 after this one, but he does have three homers and seven walks in 13 games.
Apr 18 - 1:41 AM

Carlos Gomez went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts and an ugly error in center field in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

Gomez is just 3-for-27 to date, and he's been caught on his one steal attempt. The Rangers have been leading him off, but they could go in a different direction while waiting for him to get it together. Shin-Soo Choo is the logical alternative. Delino DeShields Jr. would be another option, but he's struggling to find his way off the bench.
Apr 12 - 2:06 AM

Carlos Gomez will hit leadoff in the Rangers' season opener Monday against the Indians.

Much was made of Delino DeShields, Jr.'s hot spring, but Jurickson Profar is making the start in left field. We should still see plenty of DeShields, but his role could be fluid. The Rangers' full lineup, which has an interesting look with Adrian Beltre (calf) on the mend: Gomez CF, Shin-Soo Choo DH, Nomar Mazara RF, Mike Napoli 1B, Rougned Odor 2B, Jonathan Lucroy C, Joey Gallo 3B, Elvis Andrus SS, Profar LF. Yu Darvish will oppose Corey Kluber.
Apr 3 - 3:11 PM

Carlos Gomez tallied two hits Wednesday in the Rangers’ Cactus League tie with the Royals.

He was the only player on either team to log more than one hit. Of the nine total hits in Wednesday’s scoreless tie, none went for extra bases. Gomez has had a productive spring and may be getting overlooked in fantasy drafts. The two-time All-Star holds an impressive .361 average across 36 Cactus League at-bats.
Mar 29 - 7:21 PM

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) has returned to the Rangers' lineup on Wednesday.

Gomez jammed his left shoulder on a slide into third base last Tuesday, but he's feeling better now. The 31-year-old outfielder finished strong last season and will serve as the Rangers' regular center fielder in 2017.
Mar 29 - 11:11 AM

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) expects to return to Cactus League action on Wednesday.

Gomez jammed his left shoulder a week ago, but he resumed swinging bat on Sunday and is feeling closer to normal. Barring any setbacks, he should be good to go for Opening Day.
Mar 28 - 11:59 AM

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) is expected to take swings on Sunday and return to Cactus League action early in the week.

Gomez hasn't swung a bat since jamming his left shoulder during Tuesday's game. He's still considered day-to-day and looks as though he should be ready for Opening Day as long as he avoids any setbacks this week.
Mar 25 - 11:47 AM

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) doesn't expect to miss much time.

Gomez exited Tuesday's Cactus League game after jamming his left shoulder, but it doesn't sound like a major concern. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Mar 22 - 11:33 AM

Carlos Gomez departed Tuesday's game against the White Sox after jamming his left shoulder while sliding into third base following a triple.

The Rangers don't think the injury is serious, so it sounds like his exit was precautionary. However, Gomez will be re-evaluated on Wednesday and we should know more about his status then. The fiery outfielder is having a nice spring so far, going 11-for-32 at the plate with three home runs.
Mar 21 - 10:46 PM

Carlos Gomez slugged a two-run homer in the Rangers' 3-2 Cactus League defeat of the Mariners on Sunday.

Gomez went deep off Mariners left-hander Dillon Overton in the bottom of the third inning. It was the third home run of the spring for the 31-year-old center fielder, who's sporting a .333 batting average and 1.115 OPS through 34 plate appearances in the Cactus League.
