Astros | Carlos Gomez hitless in debut

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 04:47:52 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez had no hits in five at-bats Friday, July 31, as his new team dropped a 6-4 decision to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will need some time to adjust to his new lineup, so take this game with a grain of salt. He figures to see plenty of playing time moving forward, so one game isn't going to make a difference. Wait a bit and let him get adjusted to American League pitching.

Astros | Carlos Gomez batting second

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 14:43:27 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez is playing center field and batting second against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will hit between Houston's top two hitters, which is an extremely cushy fantasy situation. Although, he had comfy surroundings in Milwaukee, too. Gomez hasn't been at his finest this season, but he owns high-end upside and is worth considering in FantasyScore contests Friday.

Astros | Carlos Gomez to debut Friday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:22:26 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez will make his debut with the Astros Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: The move to Houston on the surface looks bad for Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) going to a less hitter-friendly ballpark. However, there's a trade off: He joins a much more explosive offense, so the fantasy impact will likely be minimal. It remains to be seen what Houston's outfield alignment will be with Gomez in town, but Jake Marisnick and Preston Tucker could see their playing time drastically reduced, especially when George Springer returns from the DL.

Brewers | Milwaukee deals Carlos Gomez, Mike Fiers

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:56:11 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers dealt OF Carlos Gomez and SP Mike Fiers to the Houston Astros Thursday, July 30, and received prospects OF Brett Phillips, P Josh Hader, OF Domingo Santana and P Adrian Houser.

Fantasy Tip: Khris Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should start every day in the outfield, and he'll be worth grabbing in deeper mixed leagues, and he can be used against right-handed pitching on FantasyScore. Wily Peralta ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will move into Fiers' rotation spot, he allowed just two earned runs over six innings in his return from the disabled list, and he can be used depending on his matchup.

Astros | Carlos Gomez, Mike Fiers going to Houston

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:41:27 -0700

The Houston Astros acquired OF Carlos Gomez and SP Mike Fiers from the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, July 30. OF Brett Phillips, P Josh Hader, OF Domingo Santana and P Adrian Houser go to Milwaukee.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez's ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) fantasy value will take a slight hit, as he goes from the park with the second highest runs per game to the park with the 19th highest average, but he does join a more potent offense. OFs Jake Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Preston Tucker ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will lose playing time and fantasy value. Fiers ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will receive a slight boost, as he moves to a more pitcher-friendly ballpark. Lance McCullers ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) may be bumped from the starting rotation.

Brewers | MIL denies Carlos Gomez hip issue

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:18:20 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez (hip) was the centerpiece of a deal that fell apart with the New York Mets due to an alleged hip issue. Brewers general manager Doug Melvin and Gomez's agent, Scott Boras, denied Gomez had an issue with his hip. According to a source, the Mets wanted the Brewers to take OF Juan Lagares in the deal, but the Brewers declined because Lagares has an elbow issue. Lagares also has a four-year, $23 million extension that kicks in next year, and the Brewers didn't want to pick up the money. The Mets swapped in SS Wilmer Flores in the deal and wanted a draft pick, which the Brewers declined. The Brewers were also asked to include cash in the deal and declined. After the Brewers declined to include cash in the deal, the Mets called off the deal because of Gomez's medical records.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Gomez's hip condition is overblown or even a smokescreen. At $5,400 (10.8% of cap), Gomez remains a high-end outfielder. However, it might be best to avoid him on FantasyScore until after the July 31 deadline passes.

Brewers | Carlos Gomez's hip an issue

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 05:36:29 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez's (hip) issue with his hip is the reason the New York Mets balked at acquiring him.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is healthy enough to play, but the issue must be something that could be a hindrance in the future. Stay away from him on FantasyScore until the deadline passes Friday as he's still on the trading block.

Mets | Carlos Gomez deal falls through

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 20:09:41 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez is staying put, as the previously agreed upon deal for 2B Wilmer Flores and SP Zack Wheeler has fallen through. General manager Sandy Alderson said Wednesday, July 29, "there is no trade" for Gomez and that a deal "will not transpire."

Fantasy Tip: So much for that. Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is still a risky FantasyScore play in the coming days, as he is clearly on the trade block and could be dealt. He could be late scratch or early removal from a game, costing FantasyScore players.

Mets | Carlos Gomez acquired from MIL

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:36:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, the New York Mets have acquired OF Carlos Gomez from the Milwaukee Brewers, in exchange for SP Zack Wheeler and SS Wilmer Flores.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) returns to the Big Apple for his second tour of duty with the Mets. He is likely to serve as the regular left fielder while Michael Cuddyer ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is on the DL and could move over to center field when he returns to action. Wheeler, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, was expendable due to the team's excess of quality starting pitching. Ruben Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) or Juan Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) could see regular playing time at shortstop due to Flores' departure, with Uribe being the slightly better FantasyScore option.

Brewers | Carlos Gomez traded to NYM

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:28:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Milwaukee Brewers have acquired SP Zack Wheeler and SS Wilmer Flores from the New York Mets, in exchange for OF Carlos Gomez, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Wheeler is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery and is not expected to resume pitching at the major league level until after the 2016 All-Star break. Flores ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is batting .249 with 10 home runs and 40 RBIs in 92 games this season. He could slide over to second base or third base due to the presence of SS Jean Segura ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) at shortstop.
