Carlos Gomez doubled and tripled to finish 3-for-4 with three RBI on Wednesday.
Gomez has had a very disappointing season to say the least. Today's game will give his beleaguered fantasy owners a glimmer of hope. He has a .644 OPS with only four home runs, 21 runs scored and 23 RBI at the halfway mark. He was terrible in April and May before having a good month of June. Today was his first good game in July. His second half performance is going to make or break a lot of fantasy teams whose owners paid a hefty draft day price for Gomez back in March. Jul 7 - 12:12 AM

Carlos Gomez socked a two-run homer in Friday’s win over the White Sox.

Gomez’s overall numbers still look pretty ugly, but he’s quietly been pretty good since returning from the disabled list. He’s batting .286 with four home runs, five doubles, 15 RBI, three stolen bases, and 14 runs scored in 25 games dating back to May 31

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and three runs scored in the Astros' 5-2 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Gomez had a couple singles, and the stolen base was his seventh in nine attempts this year. He's still hitting just .189/.254/.302 on the year, but he's now scored eight runs in his last eight games with three homers in that span. It's not much, but it's at least a glimmer of hope for those looking for signs of life from the 30-year-old.

Carlos Gomez belted his second home run of the season as the Astros fell to the Rangers on Tuesday night in Arlington.

His two-run shot off Cole Hamels in the second inning opened the game's scoring. It's the second home run in the past three games for Gomez who finally appears to be showing some signs of life at the plate. He finished the day 1-for-2 plus a pair of walks to raise his season slash to .190/.253/.296 to go with his two homers and eight RBI.

Carlos Gomez is not in the Astros' starting lineup Saturday against the Athletics.

Gomez hasn't hit much since coming off the disabled list, collecting just two hits in 11 at-bats with seven strikeouts over that span. He wasn't in the lineup for Friday night's game either. Jake Marisnick will start in center field and bat ninth.

Carlos Gomez will bat seventh in his return from the disabled list Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

This is where he batted most of the time before hitting the disabled list with a bruised left rib cage earlier this month. The 30-year-old returns to a disappointing .182/.238/.248 batting line.
May 31 - 12:30 PM

Astros activated OF Carlos Gomez from the 15-day disabled list.

Gomez, who has been out since May 15 with a bruised left rib cage, will make his return Tuesday. The 30-year-old went 5-for-20 (.250) with a homer over five games during his minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi. He was batting just .182/.238/.248 over 34 games prior to the injury. The Astros and fantasy owners are hoping that the time off did him some good.
May 31 - 11:07 AM

Carlos Gomez (ribs) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the first day he's eligible.

Gomez will play his fifth and likely final rehab game on Sunday. He's 5-for-17 with one homer in his first four contests as he works his way back from a bruised left rib cage. "I think he's feeling a lot better, which is the number one priority," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of Gomez. "Getting production out of him is the second phase of this."
May 29 - 3:35 PM

Carlos Gomez (ribs) hit a solo home run in a rehab game Wednesday night with Double-A Corpus Christi.

It was his first home run at any level of baseball since the calendar turned to 2016. Gomez ultimately finished the night 1-for-4 and is now 1-for-8 through two rehab games. The center fielder was batting just .182 with a .486 OPS in 34 games for Houston when he landed on the disabled list May 16 with a bruised left rib cage. He'll be back in the majors next week.
May 25 - 10:51 PM

Carlos Gomez (ribs) went 0-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch in his minor league rehab debut with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday night.

Gomez, on the 15-day disabled list since May 16 with a bruised left rib cage, should be ready to for activation when first eligible next week. He was batting just .182 with a .486 OPS over his first 34 games this season for Houston, but the dynamic 30-year-old center fielder seems like a pretty good buy-low target in standard fantasy leagues.
May 24 - 11:08 PM

Carlos Gomez (rib cage) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

Gomez landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a bruised left rib cage. He's not eligible to return until the beginning of June, but getting a bunch of at-bats in the minors isn't the worst idea for him. He's batting just .182 with a .486 OPS in 34 games this season.
May 24 - 3:25 PM

Carlos Gomez (rib cage) worked out at Minute Maid Park on Saturday.

He expects to do the same on Sunday. If that goes well, Gomez would likely begin a week-long rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi. The two-time All-Star has struggled mightily this year, hitting just .182 with 46 strikeouts in 121 at-bats.
May 21 - 5:34 PM

The Astros are hopeful that Carlos Gomez (rib cage) will be ready to resume baseball activities early next week.

"We're shooting for maybe next week sometime," manager A.J. Hinch said Thursday. "I'm going to talk to him today and I'll probably meet up with him over the weekend in Houston and we'll develop a plan, but we're hopeful to get him back into baseball activities by early next week." While Gomez appears close to resuming baseball activities, it might be a while before he is activated. The Astros could use most, if not all, of the allotted 20 days on a rehab assignment for Gomez to work on his swing after a really rough start to the season.
May 20 - 9:31 AM

Astros placed OF Carlos Gomez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 16, with a bruised left rib cage.

Gomez suffered a rib cage injury a couple of weeks ago and apparently aggravated it at some point in the past few days. Either way, some time away might not be the worst thing for him. The 30-year-old is batting just .182/.238/.248 through 34 games this season. Jake Marisnick figures to get most of the time in center field during his absence.
May 17 - 1:42 PM

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow indicated Monday that the club is growing impatient with Carlos Gomez.

Gomez is batting just .182/.238/.248 through 132 plate appearances this season and Luhnow acknowledged Monday that "it's hard to continue to play a player that isn't helping you win ballgames." Jake Marisnick has also struggled and Preston Tucker was just demoted to the minors after getting off to a slow start, so it's no sure thing that the alternatives will be much better. Tony Kemp, who was called up on Monday, could find his way in the mix.
