MLB | Jonny Gomes has no plans to retire

Wed, 25 May 2016 19:55:11 -0700

Free-agent OF Jonny Gomes (Japanese League) said he is not retiring. The 35-year-old veteran, who played in the majors from 2003 to 2015, was playing with the Rakuten Golden Eagles of the Japanese League until two weeks ago, when he voluntarily parted ways with the club. Gomes hit just .169 in 75 plate appearances with Rakuten this year.

Fantasy Tip: If Gomes latches on with an MLB team, it would almost certainly be in a reserve role, which would limit his fantasy value to deep single-universe seasonal leagues.

Royals | Jonny Gomes headed to free agency

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 12:44:21 -0800

Kansas City Royals OF Jonny Gomes' 2016 team option was declined, and he will become a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes is nothing more than a cavernous mixed or only-league option at this stage of his career, and even in those formats, he is a low-end outfielder. After all, the 34-year-old veteran posted a .660 OPS with just seven home runs and 26 RBI over 262 plate appearances last season.

Royals | Kendrys Morales not playing

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 08:28:36 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Saturday, Oct. 3. OF Jonny Gomes will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Morales ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) could be receiving another day off to rest his injured quadriceps. Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has only one hit in his last eight games and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Royals | Alex Rios a late scratch

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 14:52:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios (back) was a late scratch Thursday, Oct. 1. OF Jonny Gomes draws into the lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jonny Gomes Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has struggled (.143/.250/.238 slash line) since joining the Royals, but he boasts a respectable .830 slash OPS against left-handed pitchers this season, and he checks out as a solid low-priced option for FantasyScore players Thursday.

Royals | Jonny Gomes in against a LHP

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 13:21:11 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jonny Gomes is hitting seventh Saturday, Sept. 19, in place of OF Alex Rios.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a .241-5-15 line against lefties this year and is a basement flyer on FantasyScore against lefty Matt Boyd.

Royals | Jonny Gomes batting sixth vs. Tigers

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:56:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jonny Gomes is starting in right field and batting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf Wednesday, Sept. 2. It is Gomes' first game with the Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will likely platoon with Jarrod Dyson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in right field with Alex Rios (illness) on the shelf with chickenpox. Gomes has fared well against southpaws this season with a .453 slugging percentage. Still, he is more of a flier than a target at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Royals | Jonny Gomes acquired by KC

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 18:20:57 -0700

The Kansas City Royals acquired OF Jonny Gomes from the Atlanta Braves Monday, Aug. 31. The return for the Braves is not yet known.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is a good locker room guy with postseason experience, something which is way more important to his real team than to FantasyScore players.

Braves | Jonny Gomes batting cleanup vs. Marlins

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:37:23 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes is batting fourth against Miami Marlins SP Chris Narveson Monday, Aug. 31. OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) owns a .878 OPS against lefties this season with 16 runs, five home runs and 14 RBI over 97 plate appearances. He is a worthy flier for FantasyScore players, especially in a plus-matchup.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski not in lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:56:43 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Christian Bethancourt is starting and hitting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Yohan Flande. Also, OF Jonny Gomes is starting in left field and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Against Flande, using Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) and Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) aren't bad considerations if you're looking for salary cap relief. Gomes, especially, could return nice value in the middle of the order against a lefty.

Braves | Jonny Gomes excels at cleanup

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 22:48:50 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and three RBIs Monday, Aug. 24, against the Colorado Rockies while batting in the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Fredi Gonzalez moved Gomes to cleanup due to the fact he hits 50 points higher against left-handed pitchers than right-handers. At $2,500 (5.0% of cap) he is a decent low-end FantasyScore play when facing LHP.
