Carlos Gomez went 0-for-4 on Monday and is 7-for-49 in 15 games since coming off the disabled list.
Odd is that he's struggled despite striking out just seven times in his 58 plate appearances since returning. Before landing on the DL, he fanned 49 times in 37 games and 156 plate appearances. The Rays don't have much choice but to stick with Gomez and hope that he turns it around. Jun 11 - 10:20 PM

Carlos Gomez (groin) belted a solo home run in his return to the Rays' lineup on Friday.

Gomez was removed from Wednesday's game due to minor groin discomfort, then sat out Thursday's contest as a precautionary measure. His solo shot came off of Mariners' starter Mike Leake in the fifth inning. Gomez finished the night 1-for-5 and is now hitting .194/.265/.370 with seven homers and 13 RBI on the season.

Carlos Gomez (groin) expects to play Friday.

Gomez left Wednesday night's game against the Athletics with some minor groin discomfort and he is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon, but this doesn't seem to be a serious issue. The veteran outfielder has a disappointing .194/.267/.356 batting line with six home runs and four stolen bases in 42 games this year.

Carlos Gomez was removed from Wednesday's game against the A's due to "lower half tightness," per Rays manager Kevin Cash.

Gomez hit a triple in the second inning, got plunked by a pitch in the third inning, and then lined out to right field in the fifth inning before getting replaced by Mallex Smith. Cash called the move precautionary but noted that Gomez will likely sit out Thursday afternoon's series finale with Oakland.

Rays activated OF Carlos Gomez from the 10-day disabled list.

As anticipated, Gomez returned as soon as he was eligible from his right groin injury. He has been a major disappointment this season, slashing just .200/.252/.345 with five homers, 11 RBI and three stolen bases.

Gomez suffered the injury in Tuesday night's game against the Royals. He has batted just .200/.252/.345 in 37 games this season, though the veteran outfielder does have five home runs and three stolen bases. Johnny Field will see an uptick in playing time while Gomez is out.

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 with a two-run triple as the Rays fell to the Orioles on Friday night.

Gomez plated two with a three-bagger in the eighth inning to trim their deficit to 8-3 and later scored in the inning. With the two-hit attack he's now hitting .205/.255/.364 with five homers, 10 RBI and three stolen bases on the season.
May 11 - 10:08 PM

Carlos Gomez went 3-for-4 and hit his fifth homer of the season in a 2-1 loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

The homer was a big one; a solo shot that tied the game at 1-1 off of Ryan Tepera in the bottom of the eighth. Unfortunately, that was the only run of the game for Tampa Bay, which makes it tough to win. After a miserable start, Gomez has his season line up to .200/.256/.358. He's still tough to trust from a fantasy perspective.
May 6 - 4:23 PM

Carlos Gomez is not in the Rays' starting lineup for Saturday's showdown against the Blue Jays.

It looks to be just a day of rest for the struggling outfielder, who is hitting a meager .181/.240/.319 with four homers and seven RBI on the season. Mallex Smith will start in his place in right field and bat eighth for the Rays against Aaron Sanchez and the Jays.
May 5 - 2:02 PM

Carlos Gomez singled and stole his third base of the season Tuesday against the Tigers.

The Rays managed just eight singles and one run against Matt Boyd and the Tigers' bullpen in this one. Gomez has stolen three bases without being caught and also hit four home runs this season, but he's sporting an ugly .178/.241/.327 batting line.
May 1 - 9:45 PM

Carlos Gomez hit a walk-off two-run homer in Tampa Bay's 8-6 victory over the Twins on Sunday.

The homer came off of Addison Reed, and it is third homer of the season for Gomez. The veteran outfielder has gotten off to a horrific start to his time with the Rays, and even with the homer his OPS sits at just .536. It's early, however, and Gomez is too talented to have these paltry numbers all season.
