Carlos Gomez (ankle) is likely done for the year.
Gomez has been playing through a balky right ankle for much of September and now it appears the out-of-contention Rangers will shut him down early. The 31-year-old center fielder is scheduled to hit free agency five days after the World Series. He slashed .255/.340/.462 with 17 home runs and 13 stolen bases in 105 games this season for Texas while pulling in $11.5 million. Sep 27 - 1:29 PM

Carlos Gomez (ankle) is making his first start in 12 days Thursday against the Mariners.

Carlos Gomez (ankle) doubled as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning of Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

It was the first action of any kind for Gomez since he suffered a bad ankle sprain 10 days ago. He immediately got pulled for a pinch-runner, which is a good indication that the injury isn't quite fully healed. We'll see if he is in the Rangers' starting lineup on Wednesday.

Carlos Gomez (ankle) remains sidelined Tuesday.

Gomez has been out for the last 10 days because of a bad ankle sprain and it's unclear when he might be able to return. Delino DeShields will continue to get the majority of the playing time in center field for Texas.

Carlos Gomez (ankle) is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

Sep 10 - 12:16 PM

Carlos Gomez was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Yankees in the second inning due to an apparent ankle injury.

Gomez twisted his ankle awkwardly while running out of the batter's boz in his first at-bat on Saturday. He had to be helped off of the field. He'll presumably head for X-rays to rule out any structural damage. Look for an update from the Rangers on his status after the game.
Sep 9 - 1:37 PM

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 and drove in a run during Wednesday's loss to the Braves.

His fifth-inning double plated Nomar Mazara but the Rangers ultimately came up a run short in the contest. Gomez is in the midst of a semi-useful but uninspiring fantasy season. He has a .251 batting average with 17 home runs, 48 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 401 plate appearances.

Carlos Gomez slugged a solo homer and scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in Friday’s 10-9 victory over the Astros.

It was a wild back-and-forth affair which lasted four hours and 33 minutes, the third-longest nine-inning game in MLB history. It looked like the Rangers put the game to bed when Gomez homered off Keynan Middleton in the sixth inning, but the Angels fought back in a hurry before tying things up in the eighth. Gomez drew a two-out walk in the bottom of the frame before stealing second and moving to third on a throwing error by catcher Martin Maldonado. Cam Bedrosian then uncorked a wild pitch to bring in what was ultimately the winning run. Gomez is 4-for-24 (.167) since returning from the disabled list.

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) expects to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday, the first day he's eligible.

Gomez had minor surgery to remove a cyst from his right shoulder. He's slated to throw, shag flys and possibly swing a bat on Tuesday. It's unclear whether he might need a short rehab assignment before returning, but either way it sounds like fantasy owners will get him back later this week.
Aug 21 - 9:55 PM

Rangers placed Carlos Gomez on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

The move was made retroactive to August 16. Gomez had a cyst removed from his right shoulder and is still recovering. Utility man Phil Gosselin was called up to take his roster spot. It should be a minimum DL stint for Gomez, who has hit .251 with 15 homers, 42 RBI and 11 steals this season.
