      Astros' Carlos Gomez: Trains in Dominican Republic

      Gomez is spending most of the offseason conditioning in the Dominican Republic, Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports. Gomez is participating in a conditioning plan that is adjusted to consider his left intercostal strain that bothered him at the end of the year. No surgery was necessary following the injury and it appears Gomez is very close to being fully healthy. Barring further injury, Gomez will be the starting center fielder for Houston to begin 2016.

      Astros' Carlos Gomez delivers clutch RBI single in Game 3 ALDS win

      In his return to the starting lineup Sunday, Gomez went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Houston's Game 3 ALDS win over Kansas City. After being limited as a pinch-runner and defensive substitute in the first two games of the ALDS, the veteran center fielder delivered a clutch RBI single with two outs in the sixth inning to give the Astros a two-run cushion in the game. "It's not about the big hit that I hit," Gomez said after the game. "It's about that win we had today. That's the most important thing. I was trying to keep myself breathing and have a good at-bat and looking for the pitch that he throws me and not miss it because when I miss it you don't want to know how I feel." At less than 100-percent, Gomez's availability for Game 4 of the ALDS on Monday afternoon is unclear.

      Astros CF Carlos Gomez not in the lineup for Game 2

      Astros center fielder Carlos Gomez (oblique) is not in the lineup Friday for Game 2 of the ALDS, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports. After missing Game 1 with an oblique injury, it was assumed by many pundits that Gomez would return to the lineup for Game 2, however that doesn't appear to be the case. Much like Thursday, Gomez will likely be available off the bench to play in a pinch-hit or pinch-run situation, but it's unlikely he will spend any major time in the field Friday. Jake Marisnick will man center field and hit ninth in the batting order in his place.

      Astros OF Carlos Gomez will start Tuesday's wild-card game

      Astros outfielder Carlos Gomez (back) is in the lineup for Tuesday's wild-card matchup against the Yankees, Bryan Hoch of reports. There was some concern Gomez would miss Tuesday's game considering he was unavailable for the Astros' final series of the season with a strain in his back, but it's clear now he should be good to go. While the strain will likely continue to affect him for much of the postseason, he should provide some veteran leadership for a young Houston team that clawed its way back into the postseason picture.

      Astros OF Carlos Gomez swipes two bases Wednesday

      Astros outfielder Carlos Gomez went 2 for 4 with two steals and a run scored in a 7-6 win over Seattle on Wednesday. Gomez has been a huge disappointment for the Astros, but he still could help them to sneak into the playoffs. A player like Gomez has all the potential in the world, but players like that are always prone to injury with their reckless style of play. In any case, Gomez might be a nice value next season, if he drops far enough.

With the Astros now 2 1/2 games back on the Rangers for the AL West lead and only holding onto a wild-card spot by half a game entering Monday's action, the team is reportedly "pushing" Gomez, but it sounds like his availability could be quite limited for the remainder of the regular season.
