Carlos Gomez went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI in leading the Rangers to an 11-4 win over the Blue Jays on Thursday.

In a tear reminiscent of what J.D. Martinez did earlier this year, Gomez has five homers and 14 RBI in six games since coming off the disabled list. Before getting hurt, he had four homers and 13 RBI in 38 games. The Rangers might want to hit him higher in the order to capitalize on this. He opened the season as a leadoff man, but he's batting sixth right now.

Carlos Gomez had a three-run homer and an RBI single against the Mariners in his return from the disabled list Friday.

Welcome back, Carlos. Delino DeShields was fine as a part-time center fielder in his absence, but Jared Hoying did little and the Rangers can still play DeShields in left frequently.

Carlos Gomez (hamstring) played a pair of games over the weekend for Triple-A Round Rock, kicking off his minor-league rehab assignment.

Gomez was 1-for-3 as the designated hitter on Saturday, and 1-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts Sunday while also serving as the DH. It's uncertain how many at-bats the team would like him to log before he is considered for activation. In addition, he'll likely need to spend time in the outfield before the team green lights him.
