Carlos Gomez is not playing every day for the Brewers but if he can keep up his solid play things will change.
Analysis: In just twenty-nine at-bats this year, Carlos Gomez has stolen five bases. But the big surprise here is the .345 batting average thus far. He isn’t a must add at the moment but in deeper leagues you just have to keep an eye on the twenty-six year old burner. The Brewers are deep in the outfield so his playing time will be limited but five stolen bases in twenty-nine at-bats is impressive regardless. If Carlos Gomez can keep hitting he will push Morgan and Aoki for at-bats. We also cannot forget that Corey Hart is never a lock to be healthy for a full big league season in right field either.
Gomez is owned in just one percent of fantasy leagues and it will be quite awhile before he catches anyone’s eye. For now Gomez remains seventh in all of baseball in stolen bases and is batting a solid .345. Perhaps the biggest indicator of his turnaround may be the one strikeout in those twenty-nine at-bats, absolutely great for a guy with a career 22.1 K%.
