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

Carlos Gomez slugged a solo homer Friday against the Twins.

Gomez went 1-for-4 on the night, with the homer coming against Bartolo Colon in the ninth inning. The 31-year-old has hit safely in eight straight games, though he’s managed just one multi-hit game along the way. Gomez finished last season strong with the Rangers and has backed that up by batting .254/.334/.468 with 15 homers, 40 RBI, 10 steals, and 40 runs scored through 79 games this season. While he’ll likely never come close to the production he had at his peak in Milwaukee, he’s still a useful player to have around in fantasy leagues.

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.
