Rangers' Carlos Gomez: Stays hot with two-run bomb

Gomez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Mariners.

Gomez lit up the Mariners for four hits -- including two long balls -- and eight RBI during the three-game series, an impressive achievement considering he had just been activated from the disabled list Friday after a month-long layoff due to a hamstring injury. After back-to-back disappointing campaigns that included stints with the Brewers, Astros and Rangers, Gomez has showcased improved power and on-base skills when he's been healthy this season, but expecting further growth in his .253 batting average might not be realistic. Gomez's .324 BABIP and 27.1 percent strikeout rate suggest that fantasy owners might actually be fortunate that he hasn't been more of a sinkhole in the category to date.
