Astros | Carlos Gomez still not 100%

Tue, 03 May 2016 16:37:19 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (rib cage) said he's not yet 100%, "but good enough to perform tonight. I'll get back to the lineup and do my thing."

Fantasy Tip: Gomez has been out to a slow start, hitting just .213/.241/.275 with zero home runs and only two RBI in his first 80 at-bats. Even with him back in the lineup, owners may want to give him a couple of games to get in a rhythm. His return is also bad news for Preston Tucker.

Astros | Carlos Gomez returns from injury

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:10:00 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (rib cage) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Alex Meyer Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez has to be one of the biggest early-season disappointments for fantasy owners with a slash line of .213/.241/.275 and no home runs, two RBI and two stolen bases in 22 games. Perhaps nagging injuries have been the culprit. Whatever the case, you can probably buy him for pennies on the dollar. Keep him out of traditional lineups until he proves his health and shows signs of life.

Astros | Carlos Gomez could play this week

Mon, 02 May 2016 16:59:12 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (rib cage) could get into the game Monday, May 2, and manager A.J. Hinch said Gomez should play at some point during the series against the Minnesota Twins. Gomez is hitting just .213 with two RBI in 25 games to begin the year. There remains a chance that Gomez could land on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez's owners may prefer for him to go on the DL the way he's been healthy. Stay tuned for updates, but plan on sitting Gomez for a while. Preston Tucker is starting Monday night and would see a nice uptick in playing time if Gomez lands on the DL. Tucker is worth a pickup in deep mixed leagues if he becomes a regular in the outfield this month.

Astros | Preston Tucker batting sixth vs. Twins

Mon, 02 May 2016 13:12:09 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker is starting in left field and batting sixth against Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios Monday, May 2. OF Carlos Gomez (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez could be headed to the disabled list, so Tucker projects to see a nice boost in fantasy value for the immediate future. For Monday, view Tucker as a viable option in daily contests, and he is a potential add in deep mixed leagues. He is struggling to start the season with a .196/.241/.392 slash line, though.

Astros | Carlos Gomez to be examined Monday

Sun, 01 May 2016 17:54:47 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (wrist) will be examined Monday, May 2, before the team decides whether or not he needs to be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez is off to a terrible start, but it is worth hanging on to him for a while longer to see if he can return to form. If another owner cuts him loose because of the injury, he is worth adding.

Astros | Carlos Gomez remains sidelined

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:12:47 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (rib cage) is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Sunday, May 1. OF Colby Rasmus will start in center field, while OF Preston Tucker will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Gomez will need to be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Tucker has gone 2-for-11 in his last seven days but is not a strong starting candidate in most leagues.

Astros | Carlos Gomez has rib cage injury

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 11:37:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (rib cage) is expected to miss several games because of left rib cage soreness. He sustained the injury while diving during the ninth inning of the game Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: The injury does not appear to be serious enough to warrant a trip to the disabled list for Gomez, who is batting just .213 with two RBI and 24 strikeouts in 80 at-bats this year. Colby Rasmus will see the bulk of the action in center field for as long as Gomez is sidelined, with Preston Tucker seeing more action in left field as a result.

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 11:08:46 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Hahn Saturday, April 30. OF Colby Rasmus will bat cleanup and play center field, while OF Preston Tucker will bat seventh and start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Gomez's absence from the lineup is related to the wrist injury he suffered after being hit by a pitch earlier this week. He is batting just .213 with two RBI in 80 at-bats this season.

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 16:16:11 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (wrist) is in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if the injury will affect Gomez's performance at the plate, but he has recorded only three hits in his last 19 at-bats. Owners in daily fantasy leagues may want to look for other options since his wrist makes Gomez a risky option.
